Jpeg's look nice- as is noise control... and the camera's a "looker"...
However, the 1/2 sec lag with AF would rule me out- and the shot to shot times could be quicker...
Is there a viewfinder available for the camera...?

Fuji doesn't currently list one as an optional accessory on their website.

Default MF faster than AF? I don't think so!

The X-M1 review states, "The camera's 49-point autofocus system is accurate, although you will notice a little bit of a shutter lag in normal shooting conditions with this model. You can take shutter lag out of the equation by using manual focus." The suggestion that anyone, even a pro, can manually focus faster than a modern camera can autofocus is, to me, just plain silly. There are, of course, low contrast situations where AF systems may be prone to "hunt", but this is not what the reviewer was referring to.

He never said manual AF was faster than Auto. He simply stated that using manual focus will reduce the "shutter lag", due to the fact that you are not having to wait for the camera to autofocus.
