Replacing an X100s with an X-E1. Will I miss the X100s too much?

I'm trying to consolidate my cameras a bit because I feel I have too much gear right now.  I have a Canon 6D as my main "important pictures" camera.

But lately I've been using my X100s for most everything, it's such a fun camera to use with great IQ sooc.

I also have a Canon SL1 that I primarily purchased for my wife, but that I also use as a backup and a travel camera if I want the zoom's versatility.

I was thinking of "consolidating" the SL1 and X100s by selling both and picking up the X-E1 (which at $699 right now for the kit is a great price imo), and adding the 35mm 1.4 lens.

I am a bit concerned about what I'll lose from the X100s though - the quiet leaf shutter for street shooting, and the compact size.  Plus I think AF is a bit faster/ more accurate with X100s.  And hybrid VF of course.

So, would like to hear opinions on possibly making this switch.
