Fujifilm X-E2 or Sony A6000?

Hey guys,

So I've posted a few times about getting which mirror less camera and I've finally brought the choice down to these 2.

I'm trying to decide between these two mirror less cameras that have recently been announced. I'll be buying the camera mid-april and I was wondering which camera you guys would buy. I'm a beginner photographer that would like to increase my skills and take this camera on travels.

Here are my thoughts:
-The Sony A6000 kit is $500 cheaper than X-E2 kit, however, from what I hear the A6000 kit lens is pretty bad while the X-E2 kit lens are really good. Therefore, if I wanted a regular zoom that is decent I'd have to opt for the 16-70 Zeiss on Sony which would drop me back $1000 and I heard the 16-70 Zeiss is not good enough to warrant that price.

-It seems to me that the lens prices for the two systems are pretty comparable, but from what I understand the Fuji lens are better by a bit. 35mm 1.8 in Sony while 35mm 1.4 in Fuji for example.

-Sony doesn't seem to be very clear on what their road map is with the E mount and have stated that they will be focusing more on the FE mount, their history with mirror less have been iffy, from what others have pointed out.

-I won't use the camera much for videos, just picture taking.

-I'd really like to consider and buy the A6000 as it is so much cheaper than the X-E2 but after doing some research some say the Fuji ecosystem might be a better investment although the body will be more expensive than Sony's.

What're your guys' thoughts?

Thank you so much!
