The price for the XE1 is do tempting but I really want an XT1, but can't afford it just yet. Thus my interest in a used XE2 for now.

I have an X-E2 which replaced an X-E1.  IMO the X-E2 is definitely superior, as many of the little niggles in the E1 that bothered me have been fixed in the E2. Others have complained about some of the changes, but I have only experienced positives with the upgrade.

As to the X-T1, I don't expect to see any price breaks until fall; it is selling like hotcakes right now.  In terms of IQ, the X-E1 matches it IMO; it boils down to which form factor you prefer.  A used E2 would be your best bet currently, IMO.
