From what I can gather from the X100s press release from a hardware stand point the basic changes are the new Xtrans CMOS II sensor that incorporates PDAF sensors on chip and a new EXR Processor II. I would guess that both would have the same pad outs and chip size as the current shipping hardware. Even if they are different, all it would take would be a fairly simple circuit board change to create "s" versions of both the X-Pro and XE cameras.

The software has already been worked out with the X100s. It seems like an easy low cost update that could be brought to market quickly which would have a major positive market impact. The changes that we see in the X100s suggest that FujiFilm may indeed be listening to their customer base, it would make sense to move these improvements to the rest of the line as quickly as possible.

Why wouldn't FujiFilm want to do this?

I am baffled.  I was going to buy another XE 1 this week but now find that it is so last year.  I would feel really bad if they brought out an XE 1s next month so I will not take the risk.

In the meantime other cameras are starting to attract me.
