The Fuji X-E2 sits rather quietly between Fuji’s range of even smaller point & shoots, and its more robust professional options, the X-T1 & X-Pro line. The X-E2 enjoys the same sensor as the X-T1, which from my tests delivers far greater dynamic range than even my Canon 5DMKIII’s. I was shocked to see just how much detail is able to be pulled back in from images blown 5 stops over: so much so, that I shoot this camera on Aperture Priority with Auto-ISO - making it literally, “point and shoot”.
The files are nothing short of incredible and given it’s an interchangeable lens system, you can also remove the lens while shooting to still enjoy crazy techniques such as freelensing, as I discussed in an earlier blog.
If this quality was available in a smaller body with a flip-out screen, I’d be using this instead of the Sony.
