Does it do focus peaking? In the viewfinder? to use with my legacy lenses?

Yes, firmware update last summer.

Does the XE1 simulate exposure in the viewfinder? Does the XM1 or XA1 simulate it on the LCD?

Yes, in full manual the default since the last firmware update is Preview Exp. In Manual. Don't know about the others.

Exposure is also simulated in S, A, and P modes when you use the over/under-exposure compensation dial.

Heh, quite right and I was using it earlier today. Short-term memory loss, m'lud.

Any other issues/thoughts??

Really depends on what you want to do with it, I suppose. Forget focus tracking, by and large.

I think you meant "27mm" pancake, which is a nice little lens. I use it a lot, especially on the M1.

27mm pancake is a great little lens. If (if...) I buy an X-T1, I'll keep the 27 on my X-E1, makes a powerful little package.
