After some debate elsewhere I wondered what made youg guys go for the Fuji series. I can come up with quite a few, but leave it up to you. Thanks for responding!

I got the XE-1 very recently. I wanted something with better high ISO performance than my Micro Four Thirds gear. On some action shots and low-light shots the Panasonic simply couldn't do it, even with fairly fast lenses. The Fuji allows me to use all of the legacy Nikon lenses I'd been using on my M4/3.

As a bonus, the Fuji seems to have extra dynamic range in the RAW files over the Panasonic. I've been able to push ETTR exposures much harder without blowing highlights and to recover underexposed shots without as much problems with shadow noise.
