Can you please see these results?

One is with Canon, same settings other is with x-e1

As there is no clear standard, ISO200 on one camera isn't necessarily equivalent to ISO200 on another. Also, when compared to an external standard, what would be ISO177 on one camera and ISO223 on another might still be referred to as ISO200 on both, because '200' is a much neater' number.

It is not uncommon for a camera to be a bit off, either below or above a certain stated ISO. Sometimes an entire production run is off. It would be worthwhile to compare shots of the same scenes taken with your cameras to get a feeling for the differences and adjust accordingly. Make sure all settings are as neutral as possible and the metering modes are the same. For the X-E1, turn every image parameter down/off (i.e., to -2). Compare the histograms before taking the shots and afterwards.

Now, there are 'allegations' that Fuji overinflated its ISO numbers. Weather that is true depends somewhat on how one looks at it, but don't be surprised if the ISOs don't compare strictly to other cameras.
