I guess I don't get the idea that the X-E2 is more stealthy than the X-T1 or an SLR. It is the same size as a traditional SLR and uses lenses that are the exact same size or larger than every manual SLR lens of equivalent focal length since the 1970's.

Walk into a concert where no photography with pro equipment is allowed and the XT1 will probably be stopped at the door.. The XE2 often just walks right in. That's a different kind of stealth... concert security goons see a DSLR and think pro... they see something like the XE2 or X100 and think point and shoot.... no threat.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.

I did exactly that last week! I walked into a Dave Mason concert with my X-E2 and sat on an aisle seat. I took about 60 pictures during the concert and no one said one word to me. I posted a couple OOC jpegs in this link.
