What are THE top notch settings to make the Xe1 work fast?

Did you have the image display set to on. (Menu item blue 2) setup menu. The display with show a preview of your image for a minimum of 1.5 seconds after shooting. Turn this off (no chimping) and it responds quickly.

Good luck Eric

Yes, the sales guy turned that off for sure. But the thing i didn't like is that two second shutter being closed when i was looking thru the view finder.

Besides inserting the fastest card and formatting it, what are THE best settings to configure the XE1 to run at its fastest speed?

I am going to go back to the store this week because i think they will have a NO TAX sale on everything at Samy's Camera. I want to give the XE1 another try.

Also, i know this camera is NOT for video, but do any of you know if after the latest firmware does the video focusing "tracking" improved a little or not at all with the 18-55 lens? I was just wondering. This is not for professional video, just for using during my kid's school auditorium plays and activities. Basic stuff, you know.
