I've the X-Pro1 and X-E1 and I also used a X100.

The X-Pro1 and X-E1 have significantly better skin tone than X100 especially with higher ISO (>=1600).  And resolution is also quite a bit higher.  The 18-55mm zoom lens is as sharp or sharper than many prime lenses.  It is certainly much sharper than the Fuji XF 18mm prime.

I don't find AF slow on the X100, but AF accuracy is about the same as X-Pro1 before this latest firmware update.  Which means, it is not as accurate as I like.

In terms of AF speed on the X100s, it is rated at 0.08s, and X-E1 is rated at 0.1s.  So if X-E1 AF speed is acceptable to you, then AF speed on X100s should be fine.

Personally, I'd rather wait for X100s or buy the X-E1 with 18-55mm lens if you need a camera right now.
