Any owned/used both? I'd like to hear what you have to say.

I have a NEX-6 with kit 16-50mm lens and the Sony 35mm and Sigma 30mm. I also have the Fuji X100 which I love.

I shoot jpegs only, and mostly baby/kids (fast), family, portraits, landscape.

What bugs me about the NEX: not enough affordable and fast excellent wide/normal primes, long menu, inability to set min. shutter speed and max ISO for Auto ISO mode (important)

Compared to the NEX-6 I want (1) AF at least as fast (2) same low-light performance or better (3) same IQ or better (4) size should not be much larger with lens attached. I typically don't carry multiple lenses around and happy to shoot with 1 excellent prime on the camera when outside. I don't plan to have more than 2-3 lenses total and prefer primes. Pocket-ability is important to me.

Should I switch to the X-E2? If yes, which lenses would you get?

Shooting jpg and wanting fast primes is right in the Fuji X wheelhouse but I think it would help if you could provide a few more details.  You say pocketability is important - are you ok with a larger zoom or are looking to go all primes and not replace your 16-50 zoom?  Also, what prime focal lengths are you planning to use?   And do you value the OSS in the Sony 35 (I don't think the Fuji prime will have this)?
