I'm looking to get a new camera this holiday, and can't decide between the x100 or xe1 (there is only a $200 difference between them).

I would mainly use my camera for travel, so size is important (advantage X100 slightly)

I would not mind the fixed 23mm lens, though I would like the occasional wider option (can get wcl-x100 for x100, but then it will cost more than xe1). XE1 has my wide angle covered with the 18-55 zoom.
I like the f2 of the x100 lens, as I like the occasional bokeh shots.

I guess it comes down to IQ, is there a noticeable difference in IQ between the X-trans sensor and the CMOS in the X100? I assume the IQ of XE1 should be the same as XP1, so for the people who had both, did you notice a difference in IQ?

Thanks for your help!

You'd only be getting 1mm wider from the 18-55 compared to the WCL-100.
I'd go for the X100, the OVF makes a huge difference.
