As is repeated in here frequently, it depends on your usage. For me, practically, 90% of the time there's little if any difference. Maybe if I did large prints, heavy crops, or more 'action' stuff then perhaps it would be more noticeable. I do find the X-T1 a little lacking in the focus dept once people start moving about. The gear is what a lot of us focus on (no pun intended) and after all being a Fuji forum that is well and good. But photography is so much more than the gear. I'm speaking as someone who has a lot of gear but has got a lot to learn I like capturing and enhancing images. If I'm brutally honest I'm also into buying gear.
