There is NO reason not to get X-E1 for $719

I am officially a former nikon shooter and I am NEVER looking back

Guys, for this type of caliber that you are getting, there is no reason to be crying for the performance of AF of the XE1 after the firmware update.  Yes, i can see what some of you are saying, i can see that now, it is not super snappy and it takes a couple of "milliseconds" until it locks on focus, but it is nothing to cry about unless you shoot in darkness.

I bought the silver version this afternoon after work, i have loaded the latest firmware and i am ALREADY enjoying the thing.  I personally wouldn't be surprised if later on fuji does another touch up on the AF part.  One thing for sure, the AF on my camera does lock AF a little faster in AF-Continuous, and i am not complaining, not for this price sir!  No way Jose!

But let me tell you this, would i pay $1400 for this camera now?  No.  But it doesn't cost that anymore

I bought the camera with a 90mb/sec memory card and i am VERY satisfied.  This camera probably works perfect under plenty of light.  I have taken some simple photos from my house under crappy lighting, and i like the camera very much.  I think this camera and I are going to become very good friends.  Im tired, is been a long day, and i'm going to sleep.
