I'm just gonna throw this out there because it happened to me with the YN triggers...
Do you have fresh batteries?

Yes, that was the first thing I checked. I don't know what the deal is..

I have also found that different flash units behave differently. YN565EX fires intermittently but the YN560 (non ettl) fires every time without fail. I'm guessing it's something to do with the ETTL and extra pins on the shoe because I notice a couple of them hang off the edge a bit and is somewhat loose fitting.
Though this is a total guess because i'm no expert on the matter.

I haven't picked up my 7D since I got the X-E1...

I might actually have to move from Aperture to Lightroom as well. It was because of this camera that I downloaded the Lightroom trial. Despite Lightroom pretty much butchering the raw conversions I like a lot of the other features.

How is the AF on the X-E/X-Pro compared to the 5D's AF?
I think I'll be jumping ship to the new high-end Fuji camera that hopefully is going to be released within this year. I'm super impressed with what Fuji is doing lately and I have high hopes for the second generation of their mirrorless cams.

The up-side to the X-E1 is that you've got a very large field of AF points to choose from. But that's about the only advantage the X-E1 holds over an EOS. Any EOS in my opinion. Compared to a 60D or 7D its slower to acquire. Slower to focus, and the ergonomics of choosing a focus point are cumbersome.

If you need spot on, high speed, AF then the X-E1 will be a challenge.

Nice. Its good to see how well a little camera can hold up against a pro rig.

In good light, for my purposes, they are pretty similar as far as focus speed (The 5DII is still faster, though). The X-E1 has more focus points to choose from, but the controls aren't easy to navigate while looking through the viewfinder.

In low light the 5DII wins. However, I think as Fuji progresses, and firmware updates get released, we will see a lot of improvement on AF performance.

From a Christmas party I shot last year --
1/60 - f/2 - ISO3200 - 35mm // Bounced flash from ceiling over head.

Hahaa :)

I'm quoting this website http://www.colormatter​s.com …re-black-and-white-colors (external link)

The answer to the question - "Are black and white colors?" - is one of the most debated issues about color. Ask a scientist and you'll get a reply based on physics: “Black is not a color, white is a color.” Ask an artist or a child with crayons and you'll get another: “Black is a color, white is not a color.” (Maybe!)

Fuji is known for its awesome colors, its not fair that you guys are not sharing color versions :(
