So I see that quite some of you have moved to CSCs. My Fuji X100 makes me happy and breaks my heart at the same time. Image quality is top notch, auto focus performance makes me grind my teeth.
The problem is that all of these cameras are nice and great but I'm often shooting in conditions such as ISO 6400, f/2, 2/60 sec. Unfortunately that's dark enough to make the X100 slow to focus (which is no real problem) and in addition not nailing focus (which IS a problem).
I've looked at the NEX 6, OM-D and X-E1 (or possibly wait for the X100s?). I'd want to shoot it with a 35 or 50mm equivalent prime lens, f/2 or possibly faster. I don't need a huge amount of different lenses because if I'd seriously pack for going shooting, I'd bring the 5D III with the L stuff. Obviously I'm therefore not expecting the crazy tracking auto focus performance of a DSLR plus neither the shallow depth of field achieved with the full frame sensor (I just need wide apertures for fast shutter times).
The Pro and Con now are:
+ Good viewfinder
+ Good form factor
- Glass selection sucky (only the Sony/Zeiss 24 1.8 ?)
- Auto focus not so great?
+ Great viewfinder (fast refresh rate)
+ Fastest auto focus out of the three?
+ Good glass selection (20 1.7, 17 1.8, 25 1.4, perhaps later 45 1.8 or 75 1.8)
+ Great stabilizer
+ Flip out screen with touch control
- Weakest image quality at High ISO?
+ Great form factor
+ Good lenses (18 2, 35 1.4)
+ Nice control layout
+ Best High ISO image quality?
o Weakest viewfinder but still ok
- Slow / inaccurate auto focus?
So I'm a bit lost. All stores here have the cameras there but with no batteries in them so you can't really try them out, plus it's not as dark as where I'd use the camera. I know that you can make every camera "work" but I don't want to have 60% muda because of misfocused shots. I know that I could adapt manual focus lenses like a Voigtländer 35 1.4 to the Nex or Fuji but I think that the view finder isn't up there for fast manual focus in low light in comparison to a real range finder.
The heart tells me X-E1, the head OM-D. I'd like to hear some feedback from you guys. Did anyone compare the auto focus in low light between the X-E1 and the X100?
