Re: X100s or X-E1

Or just get both - the older X100 is going for about 500-600 used or about half the price of the X100s. People are just dumping them and going for newer models.

The X-E1 will most likely drop in price again when the X-M1 and X-A1 reaches the stores. Wait a bit and I am sure there will be more deals to be had.

Also have a look at the GR as an option to the X100 - approx. 28mm F2.8 lens - same sensor size as the X100.

Size or flexibility - that is really the choice.

If you don't use VF - then wait for the new X-M1 or even the rumoured X-A1 - will be even cheaper but no VF and a little bigger size until the pancake lenses come out.

It is devastating to choose between these two cameras. X100s seems to be the dream cam, but I'm afraid about the prime built in lens. It seems like a limitation for average photography work. Maybe I'm overthinking it?

X-E1 on the other hand allows for interchangeable lenses, but why is it $200 less? Is it because the sensor is worse?
