Re: Xe-1 vs Xe2

I purchased the X-E1 because of the considerable savings vs the X-E2 and because it's available now. By the end of November the fall leaves will be gone, and Winter will be fast approaching.

I don't anticipate needing robust AF-C the way I would with my Nikon so PDAF is not a priority.  Even the nicer LCD panel is something I can do without because I'm not a big LiveView shooter or chimper. But I can see myself upgrading to the X-E2 in the future because obviously these improvements are nice to have.

I will say that the sample images from the X-E2 look terrific, but it's unclear if they are all that much different from the X-E2.

But I figured that the $400 savings vs the X-E2 will go a long way toward my most wanted item: the 35 f/1.4.

If you do decide to get the X-E1, just make sure you do it before Oct 23, as that's when the instant rebate ends.

Best of luck and happy shooting, Markus
