    Quick... which one would you rather shoot?

    Based solely on the control layout, which camera would you rather shoot? Glance at the photo below and don't over-think it... make a fast gut decision. Click on your choice above here ^

    Brad.

    I am an old foggy.

    I would choose the oneo on the right of the image.

    Best.

    This poll is rigged, I've seen this question somewhere else, now I am putting my tin foil hat back on.

    They both sort of have the same number of controls. Fuji just spent more on labels.

    Instinctively, I would say the one to the right (Fuji?), but I suspect I would prefer the deeper grip of the Sony for longer shoots.

    One thing that I haven't noticed before is how little the viewfinder of the Fuji protrudes from the body. That's quite nice, actually

    Nothing is rigged. These are just photos of two cameras. I am asking for a gut reaction. There is no "right" answer.

    sorry about that Brad, I probably should stay off the forum after having some beverages.
    I voted but can't recall which now.

    Jorgen, I noticed the "flatness" of the XT1 too.

    Re: Quick... which one would you rather shoot?

    Fuji looks great, but I'd have to go with the Sony because it's more of a known quality.

    Have briefly sampled Fujifilm's X-Pro1 and wasn't liking it's controls as much as I expected to: Too thin (shutter speed dial), too notch-y (exposure compensation) etc--just little things. But whatever: if I already owned some Fuji lenses, I'd probably get used to them. Not going to sweat that stuff after my money's already been spent.

    Fuji for its more film-like traditional layout.

    The Sony for its less busy, more generously spaced controls and viewfinder with more eye and nose relief.
