From a D700 24-120/4 user

1)How good/bad is the autofocus? I briefly tried X-Pro1 last year and felt that the EVF has some lagging. Is that the same for X-E1?

Not bad for typical use.  Won't do it for Safari, sports.

2) How is the kit lens compared to some of the decent full frame lenses from Canon/Nikon (24-105mm/24-120mm etc.)

I think it is absolutely better then the 24-105L (used to use it on 5D); and little better then the Nikon as well at wide side.  But it has less reach from both ends.

3) I read that the 14mm lens is a great one. Any comments?

Don't have it, will have the 10-24, 55-200 with the kit lens. Best zoom I've seen.  Hope the 10-24 can at least match up with Canon's 10-22.

4) I may have to buy 60mm lens or wait for the future lenses for a tele/zoom for portraits and some tele needs. How good is the 60mm lens?

Don't have it. Will go for the 55-200.

I prefer OIS over faster lens.
