The camera is unique in many ways. Styling, operation, design and overall handling is definitely different than a "regular" point n shoot. Similar to the X10, the XF1 has a manual zoom lens - but this model takes it a step further - or should I say back a step into the body to create a slimmer camera.
Without fail people new to the camera are struck by its beauty. Then they are confused by how to turn it on. Then they are wowing at the process and the sharp, bright screen.
I've asked 10 people now which is their favorite color and tan is leading (male audience 7 to 3) by a smidge, then red, then black. The feeling is the tan just oozes that retro feel.
Now because these are pre-production models I am not here to give pixel peeping images. As I've mentioned several times before I feel there are many way more qualified bloggers and reviewers to handle that task. I just want to be able to share some features and a quick look. Just like with the X-E1, I wasn't trying to make an exclamation, I feel judging the image quality wasn't really an issue since the X-E1uses the same sensor as the X-Pro1, and thus with that lineage, to me it is going to make astounding images. That's what I saw.
I love having XF1 F/1.8 lens at 25mm. I know that most of the time I will be using the lens at 25mm for my street shooting and social situations. Party shooting is where I'll get into the zooming and yes the aperture does close down a bunch. All the specs are down below the images here.
I look forward to reading the reviews when the camera ships! Until then it looks like a winner to me.
The NEW E-Fn button allows quick access to popular functions and can be programmed as you like for several camera operations.
