I've read here and there but the responses are varied. Are people expecting too much from the upgrade? Well, I don't own one so I will never know the difference. There was a time when I was entertaining the idea of getting the X-T1 but I hesitated. Then there is the FW update and I thought it might be a good idea.....Oh well, maybe it ain't the time yet.

Well, I did a before and after with my 35mm lens (Which is my slowest focusing fuji lens) and I observed a noticeably faster AF with it :)

The 18-55mm is one of the better kit lens out there. It's sharp and contrasty but I barely use mine as I prefer faster lenses in both primes and vari-focal length lenses :)

Bili na.. ;D ;D ;D
Seriously if you have sets of DSLR, the primes are good choices. If you only want this as your everyday carry cam. You can start with the 35mm 1.4. You can add the 14 or 16 later on when the prices are dropping. It is not bad to get an 18-55 plus 35mm 1.4.....

I think you are gassing!! ;D :D

@ Retina

I'm an X100 owner but I borrowed an X-T1 for a week for testing paired with the 35mm f/1.4.  I tried it during an event I covered under a mixed lighting environment, think white balance nightmare setup.  I still prefer the reliability of our Mark 1 eyeball.  When Liz Uy stood alongside her life-sized poster during book signing, the face/eye detection feature can be dodgy and locked on at the wrong subject.  With any camera, not just Fuji, it would be nice to have the ability to turn this function on or off in the menu if needed.  Without it, somehow, I think it speeds things up a bit.

Thank you Rich. I think some E-M1 users are raving for that feature but I am not sure how olympus performs on similar environment. The d750 which I have performs reasonably well in OVF and LV but I am not sure how better it is over the mirrorless. In dim light the d750 can nail it but how good it is over the other, I have no idea. Well, I still prefer to use AF-S Single point or group and the target the eye. I don't use Auto target....maybe I am not that confident enough to trust it. I belong to an old school of photographers that do not learn new tricks. Ha ha ha ha.
The beauty of the face detection on E-m1 is, it makes shooting portrait very handy and so easy. That's what they say!!! I was hoping that X-T1 can perform well so you can take advantage of the 56mm @ 1.2. The FW 4.0 mentioned that this one of the anticipated updates. I want this feature so I can learn new tricks. You won't expect much from DSLR but this a must feature for mirrorless camera IMHO.

Hi guys! Just wanna know if anyone here had issues with Fuji XT1's rubber skin peeling off? Because mine started to peel off and it's realy annoying. It seems to be the common issue of the XT1 from what I read online. I hope the service center does something about this as it is still under warranty.

Hi guys! Just wanna know if anyone here had issues with Fuji XT1's leather skin peeling off? Because mine started to peel off and it's realy annoying.

I don't have an X-t1 but the peeling off  of the skin is an issue with this model. Installing a half case may prevent it from occurring. After a long use it is worth your while to clean the body with a damped cloth before storing it. Peeling off is not exclusive with the X-T1, my Nikon bodies are affected with this one too. After I've learned my lesson, I see to it that I clean the body before storage. I never touch the camera with wet hands. Wash my hand and dry it after touching food or drinks.
You can have it change at FujiPhil service center. I have no idea about the coverage of their warranty with this particular problem.

I read this after I read your reply on my other post. Thank you sir for the info. Although I never really experienced this with my Canon bodies it can also probably happen. As for the Fuji XT1, I'm just really kind of disappointed that it would start to fall apart that easy knowing how really expensive of a camera it is. I guess I should have bought the Gariz leather since day 1 but it's so expensive too. Lol. And the problem was more prominent on the area which won't be covered by the leather case anyway. I really hope this is covered under Fuji warranty. I read online that in Sydney and Malaysia they replaced it for free.
