Quite frankly, if the AF of the X-E1, and the other camera expected to be released (X200???) only has a slightly faster AF, and is "only" the 3rd or 4th fastest CDAF out there, I'd be OK with that.

People are saying it better be as fast as the OM-D. Why? Sure, having the fastest AF is great, but it's not really a deal-breaker for the X-Pro1 or X100 crowd, is it? There are lots of other things that make these cameras great.

And this camera doesn't have one of the greatest features that the X100 and X-Pro1 has: Optical Viewfinder.

Considering that the X100 and probably the X200 has and will have a OVF - the X-E1 should be priced at the same level as the Xx00 series cameras and offer XF mount support but not the brilliant OVF which is a huge selling point for the X100 and X-Pro1 over the competing systems (MFT, Nex, etc).

So that basically you choose lens flexibility over the OVF at the same price point.
