Last week I used a demo XE-2 body with 3 new lenses, 35, 60 and 55-200. I shot 650 images in RAW and all my images when viewed in Bridge CC are 32mg. I thought the XE-2 was a 16mg camera, how is this possible? I turned off sharpening and noise reduction, only turned on Camera Shake. Waiting for my new XT-1 and 14 and 23mm lenses. Can't wait. Finally I took the plunge and traded in 35lbs of Canon gear.

Are you talking about megapixels or megabytes? Megapixels does not equal megabytes. FWIW, the X-E1 images are 26.1 MB, but these data are only 12 bit. The X-E2 writes 14-bit data, thus the larger size of the raw files.
