As you can see it's smaller than the X-E1/2 though not by much. Build quality feels just the same. No EVF of course.
I think Fuji may have tweaked the high ISO performance as well. The picture (OOC jpg.) above is remarkably noise free for ISO 6400.
Due to the excellent OIS this is also a great hand held video camera. It is remarkably stable. The above outfit has an X-Pro 1 grip and Carry Speed viewfinder attached. It would be really useful apart from the fact that it's the usual Fuji battery in there and I have to disassemble the above to change it.
The lens is nice and light and the main reason I bought the kit. For what I shoot it's a lighter wider alternative to the 18-55mm, for when I don't need a fast(er) lens.
It's a sweet little thing and I have no idea whether I'll keep it, but I don't seem to be having much success is finding new homes for my Fuji gear. The problem of liking the look of a camera system too much I guess. I'll post more when I've given the combination some serious testing.
