And the "I like my X-E1 but the [insert camera name here] just seems to outperform it" saga continues... 

Anytime you go from a fully automatic P&S camera to one where YOU must decide how to set EVERY aspect - shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation, flash, etc. - you will struggle for a while until you learn how to most effectively set all of the parameters for each unique shooting situation.  However, once you master them, your creative control will way exceed that of being forced into the settings that an automatic P&S camera foists upon you.  Backlit contrasty scenes can be a challenge.
