First Impressions: Fuji X-T1 and 18-55mm Fujinon, Leica lenses

A sparkling new Fuji X-T1 and the rather good 18-55 kit lens has arrived for review. I am no stranger to the Fuji X series, having used the X-Pro 1, X-E1, X100 and X100S, but the X-T1 with its retro SLR styling and a button or dial for everything has the makings of the best version yet. Almost any adjustment you need to make on this camera can be done directly, either from the top dials or the five dedicated function buttons.
