I love the 56. LOVE it. But the effective focal length on the 35 means I can get more kinds of shots with it. And it just looks so ... magical, sometimes. And it's smaller, and lighter. And it focuses fast enough.
I just looked up the firmware release notes, and yeah they added a ton to the XE2! But ...
If you're shooting EVF, and you hit Playback to view your shots, it's only going to show in the EVF. Every other X cam unlinks them, which is so stupid but yet important, and annoys me to no end. I was SURE they would fix it the next time, as it's just damned software. I am stunned.
