Real interesting the way they position the X-E1 against the X100. Looking at how close they are in size it is not clear to my why the X-Pro 1 is so large. It really looks like the X-E1 could have an OVF if Fujifilm so wanted to design it that way.

I don't see how that would work. You have to remember that with multiple focal lengths the OVF will need to be able to magnify and demagnify the view to accomodate different sized lenses. That requires, not just an Optical Viewfinder like on X100, but a Multi-Viewfinder that will magnify. That requires quite a bit of space with the sliding glass mechanisms (Which is why the X-Pro1 had neither a flash or diopter). Unless you are suggesting an OVF that does not magnify. But this isnt and X100.... Many lenses and focal lengths will be used....
