Below are the relative sizes of the bodies. Would have been nice if the same case fit both bodies but you decide for yourself

To me the XE1 was a smaller, less expensive alternative to the XPro1. They took out the Optical viewfinder and made the body smaller. Now they remove the viewfinder altogether. Personally, if I want to take a picture without a viewfinder and hold the camera out, I pull out my iPhone.

I think that's a bit too harsh. There is room for cameras that only have an LCD screen but are otherwise still very capable devices. I am sure Fuji did the market research to drive their decision-making process.

After all, the viewfinder primarily serves for composing a shot, not much more. Many people are happy without a view finder. They still deserve good cameras.
