Very highly unlikely!

Why bother? The XE-1s will be announced shortly ....

Very highly unlikely. X-E1 was released 3-4 months ago, when launching it, the technology inside the x100s was more or less ready, economically an X-E1 does not make the slightest sense before early 2014, X-Pro1 will be upgraded first.

It is also not clear that the hybrid AF technology as seen in the new x100s will seamlessly work with interchangeable lenses at this time. Maybe has to be worked further in order to assure fast AF times with the X-E cameras.

Not that I would not prefer such a camera right now in exchange for my X-E1, but I see no way this camera will come before the very end of 2013 - in the best case. Probably later....
