I'm thinking that the black X-E1 will be the most popular option but that there is a higher than expected demand for the silver body and not enough inventory.

Canon 5D MkII, 24-70 f/2.8, Sigma 50 f/1.4, Canon 85 f/1.8, etc, etc...

The same thing happened with the Olympus OM-D E-M5.  Oly was surprised that there was such a high demand for the silver version. Plus, there was such a high demand anyway for the camera (black or silver).  It was nearly 50:50 between customers that wanted the black vs. the silver body.  Still took me 3 months from the day I pre-ordered to get the black body, and even harder to get the silver.  But worth the wait.

As for Fuji, I have the X100 (and v. 1.3) and am delighted with it (along with my E-M5).  But the X-E1 does look attractive.
