Sticking with E-M1, but tried a Fuji X-E2 today. I was completely underwhelmed.

I've read the marketing hype about the X-E2 with its "fast" autofocus. Also, the new price point of $1399 with an f/2.8 zoom seems very appealing. This test was only done in the store and here are my impressions:

  1. autofocus stinks! The E-M1 is so much better. The ability to focus on a nearest object or face doesn't exist in the fuji (it's one or the other). The fuji has no touch screen and thus tap to focus isn't and option. Facial autofocus missed the mark quite often.
  2. No 3.5mm audio jack.
  3. The lenses do not feel solid in comparison to canons lenses
  4. live view on my 5d3 with quick focus mode is every bit as fast as the fuji and it's full frame.
  5. Noisy lenses and sluggish focusing.

Glad I chose the E-M1 for my mirrorless camera. In the meantime, I tried the panasonic 25mm f/1.4 which I'm sorry I did. Why? I ended up buying it.
