Understood. So far my DSLR options are:

D7100 kit with 70-200 f2.8 lens. (tamron or sigma) (btw i like what sigma has been doing lately they have very good lenses - at least the new ones)

Canon 70D kit with 70-200 lens.

Now how about mirrorless camera options? Lets say I listen to my wife and don't get a DSLR. lol (she hates them) what mirrorless system camera would you guys recommend? Between Fuji, Olympus and Sony A7 maybe even Panasonic? Same budget 2300$

Well, I am the happy owner of a Fuji (x-e1) and I would recommend the new x-t1 !! I have the IQ, not the AF speed... X-T1 has both. You will love this camera and its stunning EVF. Manual focusing will be very easy with this camera.

I can not compare with other brands, sorry, I am just happy with my camera.
The kit lens is really good, this is an important point. But not weather sealed (contrary to the body). Weather sealed lenses will be released in the near future.

Nice, what about the x-e2, is it much better vs x-e1?

The AF speed is the major improvement. Note that the AF is faster when you focus in or near the center (9 focus points near the center which benefit from PDAF, which is faster than CDAF).

No real improvement in IQ, this is more or less the same sensor but it benefits from PDAF..

AF is important..  I consider that there is more difference between the x-e1 and x-e2 than between x-e2 and x-t1.
