After posting my previous response I read through the comments others had offered. I read that your missed shots were due to AF issues.

The X-E2 is supposed to have improved AF speed and performance. Perhaps it does. But have you experimented with manual focusing with the X-E1?

Yes, i have tried using manual focus on other objects when it was hard for me to focus automatically. But i havent tried manual focus on my kid yet because i dont know that manual focus helps when it comes to moving objects/subjects.


The X-E2 may offer better AF in dark lighting situations. I've heard reports that it does, but haven't yet purchased the X-E2 for my own use, so I can't say one way or the other.

When I keep running into the limitations of my equipment, I do what I can to live with that by working around the limitations. AF issues can be minimized by zone focusing.
