after X100, X-M1 now very disappointed with X-E1 built in flash

I can not belive that this happens.

The X100 was my 1st Fuji camera and I could shot great photos.

With flash setting -2/3 the indoor results (family/children) were always amazing.

The same results delivers X-M1 with XF18 or XC16-50.

And after Side by Side comparision I was going on only with X-M1.

To get a viewfinder I ordered a 2nd body, the X-E1, which arrived today.

And the flash pictures are bad compared to previous cameras. I am also using flash compensation -2/3 and the camera fires too much flash light.

The faces are washed out!

Please help ... is that normal?
Can you confirm that X-E1 flash is too much?
(Short distance ... arround 1-2 meters)
