Can Fujifilm X-T1 Top Olympus OM-D E-M1?

Fujifilm's latest addition to X-series, X-T1 is surprisingly not the company flagship camera according the Fujifilm official even the this new camera comes with the latest high tech features not found in X-Pro1 which is considered to be the flagship at the moment.

The X-T1 is priced higher than X-Pro1 at $1,299 for body only. That is about the same as Olympus OM-D EM-1 which goes for anywhere between $1,279 to $1,399.

Fujifilm X-T1 and Olympus OM-D EM-1 share so many features such as weather proofing and incredibly fast autofocus, both companies claiming 0.08 second.

The biggest difference in design is obvious; one is rangefinder style and the other one looks somewhat like smaller version of DSLR

Interestingly, X-T1 compact system camera takes the X-series in a brand-new direction despite of its styling. Ergonomically speaking, it's aimed at SLR shooters who've so far not made the jump to mirrorless, basically targeted at the same users as E-M1.

One of E-M1 is its superior digital viewfinder, which is considered to be the best ever created by any manufactures.  Then here comes Fujifilm with a newly-developed, Organic LED-based finder that provides both the highest-magnification and the shortest update lag of any compact system camera to date, according to the company.

If you have already invested in a good selection of lenses in either of the system, the decision may be simpler since neither of these camera do not clearly triumph the other.

In summary, these two cameras are the best choice currently available in the market for those considering a switch from full size DSLR to a compact system.
