Not upgrading.

The X-E1 is sharper than the X-E2.

Do you have any evidence for that?

The X-E2 has an extra layer (possibly two) in front of the sensor.

I hadn't read that. Where is it documented?

I haven't read anything about this either and don't plan to get an X-E2 but I'm anxious to see the initial professional reviews of the camera.

I know that other cameras that have had the sensor based PDAF system installed have been accused of slightly diminished image quality. Not sure it's anything that would matter in real life pictures but it'll be interesting to read what the experts and pixel peepers think.

I only preordered a camera once in my life and made a big error when I did that so even if I was thinking about switching from the X-E1 I'd probably wait until the X-E2 was reviewed before I ordered one.

Seriously; the X-E1 isn't even a year old yet. They're still under warranty.
