I picked up a Xe2s with the OIS 18-55 a month or so ago. Have been shooting it a fair amount, and overall, I'm not terribly impressed. Here's are my 2 main gripes, but they are deal-breakers as far as I can tell: 1) It's damn near impossible to see through the EVF in bright light. It's easier to compose through the live view, but even that's not so easy. I have the screen brightness as bright as it will go. Unless I'm missing something here. Under the exact same light condition, I pull out the old iphone and it's much easier to see. 2) Even when you have the exposure setting on 'average,' the highlights want to blow out. I've read this is an issue, so I'm compensating a -1, so that helps, but in certain conditions, when exposing for the highlights, and dealing the shadows later in photoshop, you damn near can't see the shadows at all in the viewfinder they are so dark. I'm guessing there is a way around my second complaint, but once again, the iphone has this lovely tendancy to compensate for the highlight enough that they are not blown, but you can still see some shadow detail to get a good composure. I'm coming from film, and optical viewfinders, so I find this all irritating beyond belief. Any advice welcome!
