Sold the XE 1 for the same reason and did assume that the XE 2 has faster AF.
Hope that the X T1 will have fast AF close to the Olympus E M1. Look forward to the reviews on this point. If that is the case then i will sell my M4/3 gear to get rid of the shutter shock issues.

What is there about the X-T1 that leads you to believe it's going to have an improved AF function from what the X-E2 offers?

Just hope and some Fuji claims about the fastest AF in mirror less world. I am afraid that this is related to the AF performance with the 14mm lens.

I own an X-E1. I will be adding an X-E2 in the next month or so, so I can't comment on any significant improvement. What I'm hoping for is improved ability to lock onto a subject in low-light conditions.

I haven't followed the X-T1 that closely, but I have the impression the "improved/fastest AF speed" claimed for the X-T1 matches the claims made for the X-E2 when it was released.

I understand why people are hoping and praying for miracles, but from where I sit, the X-T1's going to prove to be an X-E2 dressed up in a different costume. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but for my purposes, the offering doesn't tickle my fancy's worth to the tune of $300 - 400.

I believe you're correct about the test being conducted with the 14mm lens.
