XE 1 or XE 2?
Dec 20, 2013

I have an X100s that I love, but sometimes I'd like to use a zoom lens or something ultra wide.  Therefore I've been eying the XE 2.  However, I also see that not only are XE 1's selling for $899 new but Amazon is selling used ones for under $800.

I'm sure that the XE 2 is fantastic, but I'm beginning to wonder whether it's worth twice the cost of  a camera that's been only out a year and has the same sensor and lens system.

I'm wondering what people's thoughts on this are?  Also, I have a couple of old Zeiss lenses from a Contax SLR.  I hoping that people might share their experiences using older lenses on both cameras.

thanks very much
