The review is in the February 2013 print issue, not available on their website for a while I assume. I have a subscription via the Barnes&Noble Nook Reader.

Here are a few quotes from this review:

From the conclusion: "If pricing has made you hesitant to enter Fujifilm's X-Series, the X-E1 might be just the thing to draw you in."

EVF glitches: "It's wonderfully crisp, bright, and gives you a good preview of the effects of setting changes. Its refresh rate could be quicker - you'll notice a bit of stuttering on fast pans - and we wish it didn't black out during bursts, but it's among the best electronic finders out there."

Noise: "When it comes to noise, the X-E1 is a tad noisier than the X-Pro1 from ISO 400 and up. At ISO 200 the new camera proved ever-so-slightly cleaner…keeps noise to acceptable levels up to ISO 1600."

The test results chart shows moderate noise at ISO 1600 and unacceptable noise at ISO 3200 and up.

Resolution: "…diagonal resolving power outstripped horizontal and vertical measures, with all three averaging 2370 lines at ISO 200."

Relative to their review of the X-Pro1 in June 2012 "…Fujifilm has gotten better at reproducing accurate color with the unique color filter array on its X-trans sensor."

Even when you are biased all the way to the moon .. but seriously??

here are the ISO from dpreview ... X-E1 at 1600 (popular phots max recommendation!) Likewise the X-Pro1 up to 6400 (completely different technology right??) and the CANON G-1X .. poor little thing ...

Apparently those are the upper threshold pics ...

Really??

Cheers
