Cost (X-E1 + 35mm) = Cost (X-Pro1 + 35mm). Now what?

So, I was all set to order an X-E1 with a 35mm and now the deal that is offered in the US allows me to order the X-Pro1 with a 35mm FOR THE SAME PRICE.  Just great.

So the big questions for me are:

1.  How much better is the EVF on the X-E1 compared to the EVF on the X-Pro1?

2.  How much better is the build quality of the X-Pro1 compared to the X-E1?

3.  Does one or the other body fit better in one's hand?

I had already determined that the OVF was not enough of a gain for me to spend the extra $ for it when the Pro was $700 more than the E, but if I am getting it for free, then perhaps it would be nice to have?  I WILL however use the EVF a ton and if the Pro is much worse than the E then I would go with the E for sure.

Anyone have both or at least have used both who can comment on these questions?
