Add x100s or XT-1 to XE-1 kit??
Mar 28, 2014

I just acquired an XE-1 a couple months ago as a start in converting from Canon DSLR.  I am an amateur and take mostly travel and family photos. Already have a number of legacy lenses (Contax G 21,35,45,90), Voigtlander 15 and Canon FD50 1.4 as well as a Samyang 85/1.4.  Fuji glass to date are the 27, 18-55 and 55-200.  I'm having fun exploring the new equipment and getting to use my old glass again.  Travel kit is all the Fuji glass plus the V15 and Contax 35.

Here is my question.  My wife has suddenly discovered she likes the Fuji gear too (she shoots Canon 6D) and for travel together I think she expects to leave her camera at home and "borrow" mine.  I would therefore like to add a body to my kit.  Budget is $1000 +/-

Would you 1) get another XE-1 used ($300-400) with savings towards another Fuji prime, or 2) go directly to XT-1 ($1300) or 3) add a slightly used x100s ($950-1000).

I tend to prefer wide and very wide.  She prefers the FF70-200 range.

I was first attracted to Fuji by the idea of the x100s so that camera has a lot of appeal to me. I've often traveled with just a high grade small camera (Yashica T4, Ricoh GR1, Canon S95) so do like the idea of the x100s.  However, that is why I bought the 27 for the XE1 and the x100s is a one trick pony.

What additional camera makes most sense to you?
