Greg, you sort of explained your own observation. No, not much enthusiasm, but that's expected when you take an already excellent, year-old camera and spec-bump it just to stay competitive in the marketplace. That's not a knock against Fuji, they have to play the game to attract new buyers, but this wasn't intended to be a compelling upgrade.

Yes, my wallet trembles when I consider how I'll feel when Fuji takes the next big leap, perhaps with the XP2 or X-E3. The X-E2 looks very nice but I can resist it.

Very easy to resist the X-E2 if you already have a fuji camera.

For many it's not about resisting, it's about needs, and the type of work you do.

A number of photographers above mention AF in low-light, event shooting as a primary need. And other than the fixed X100s, the X-E2 will likely have the most robust AF system of any X camera. In that sense, it's the most desirable X camera so far.

And at some point I will likely put my X-E1 on Ebay and move to an X-E2.
