I know what you mean about the AF box, but I set mine one size up from the smallest on the XE1 and it improved low light AF dramatically.

I've also found that battery life and indicator is better than the X100 - on the X100 the indicator turned red and you would get one shot. I've just done about 20 shots in the red and it's still not stopped. Is suspect the MF technique I described might help as the AF won't be running behind the scenes...try it, it's worth a go...I was surprised how quick and effective it was and my lunchtime shots are all bang on in focus just by using the button - no fine tuning.
