The X-E2 is going to have an advantage in most of your areas of interest because it has the same processor as the X-T1--twice as fast as the X-E1.

Operating speed

X-E2 -faster

Single AF speed

X-E2 - faster, same speed as the X-T1

AF accuracy

Mostly the same

EVF

X-E2 was just upgraded with the same EVF fast refresh rate and color manual focus peaking as the X-T1.

EVF lag

X-E2 -- less lag, same as X-T1

"Automatic focus on the closest eye" feature (if it even exists)

Not available in the X-E1 or X-E2

From your answers, it looks like the X-E2 is pretty much on par with the XT1 when it comes to operating responsiveness and AF?

The X-T1 is faster at continuous AF, 8fps vs 3fps.

In this case, I might well wait until its price drops down to something similar to the X-E1 today.

Thanks for the comparison.
