I think that is a good decision. Its better to be very familiar with the XE1 than get the newest and latest and have to relearn some aspects (although they will be very very similar).

Given they will be almost identical there wouldn't be a lot of advantage for tourist type photography.

I found having AF and OIS of the 18-55 was very useful as sometimes you don't have a lot of time to compose the shot and take it. Especially when there are crowds and its hard to get to the spot you need to be.

I knew my XE1 like the baack of my hand. I got a few good shots that suddenly appeared and I was happy about that because I was so familiar with the camera.

Manual focus is up to you but AF is better for this type of photography anyway.

Greg.
