Interesting, I am thinking if it is a good idea to take this Fuji + 18-55 to my next big shooting.
Primes are not good for my needs so I need zoom and I need fast zoom and body, able to produce a lot of high quality images.

So I am on board with the following question - can this Fuji replace Canon FF DSLR with 24-105/4 lens by quality of images (I shoot in RAW)

I went from a Canon 5D mark III and also used a 24-105 f4. I find the results to be just as good. I also used Raw and I now use Raw and PP in LR4 with excellent results.

No focus confirmation with the Fotodiox lens adapters, but it's not too bad manually focusing.

"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Does any x-e1 owners get bothered with with LCD's 460k resolution? I had the same resolution on the Olympus e-pl2 and I hated it. It looks so cheap and blurry. Any same experience with the X-e1?

I was more attracted to the EVF. The LCD is really for exposure, composure and tool options.

It's not bad at all.

I compared this with the Xpro-1 side by side and had a hard time seeing a difference on the full image.

XE1+35 1.4 kit can be had at bh for $1300!

I ended up cancelling my preorder back in November cause they didn't offer that kit for $1400 that Canada was getting. Now the savings is even better and I figured as much that's why I canceled it. I am tempted but can't spend that cash right now sadly.

I recently downloaded the LR 4.4 release candidate to try to see if I could get better IQ. Seems that it works a lot better, not perfect but much better.

One or two from the other day with X-E1 and 35mm lens

You can have it all for ~$2800 *I better get out of here pronto, my fingers itchy*

Ditto, the EVF is actually nice. I also use the LCD for exposure/composure. I do like the auto-eye sensor...
