My big worry is really about the quality of the kit lens. The kit lens for the XE-1 is by all accounts stunning. Will this be the same? If not, they you're sacrificing AF speed, a VF, and perhaps IQ, and it becomes less attractive. If the IQ of the kit is great, I'd jump.

Excellent Fujinon lenses have been used by the imaging industry for nearly half a century. I don't think Fuji has a clue how to make a poor lens.
While they may not be well known in the consumer marketplace, large and medium format still photographers, and the movie/TV production industry revere their quality. At the moment B&H Photovideo show over 200 motion picture lenses ranging from $2,000 to $160,700US. The quality of a proposed Fujinon is the least of my worries.

Encouraging, thanks!
