Back when the cameras were new, the FE was about 3 times more than the XG series, any of them, and didn't take images any better.

I have experience with the XGs and Nikons going back to when they were released.
Compose,focus, shoot. Does the FE do it any better? No it doesn't.
You were in high skewl when the post before last was made, I was there before XG and FE came out.
