Unlike the Sony Nex forum where every 2nd or third post is about the A7/7r and even being talked about on other forums I don't see much traffic about the new XE2.

Too subtle an upgrade?

XE2 makes sense for new buyers to keep that model relevant. It would have been easy to implement because all the work was done for the X100s.

I hope the XPro2 is a more aggresive and bolder upgrade over XPro1.


I think you're conflating 'forum traffic' with 'enthusiasm'. A whole lot of the traffic about the a7 is less than enthusiastic: people speculating about the lenses, the shutter sound, the future of NEX, the usual and tiresome format wars...

Most of the posts I've seen about the X-E2 express general satisfaction with the improvements, because there are a lot. Not everyone is going to upgrade though, and personally I think that's a good thing. I'm not really a fan of the consumer culture whereby everything has a lifespan of a year or less: I bought my X-E1 and I intend it to last me several years.
