It is easy to have lower noise levels at ISO 3200 than other cameras, just call your ISO1600 - 3200.

From DPR review of E-X2

However, a significant part of this advantage stems from the camera's need for longer exposures to achieve the same JPEG brightness level as its rivals. This is the way the ISO standard is measured, and the basis on which we conduct this test. However the X-E2's need for unusually long exposures explains much of the difference we see between it and the Sony NEX-6; in fact it's probably better compared to the performance of its peers set 1EV lower (i.e. ISO 400 on the Fujifilm compared to ISO 200 on its rivals).

DPR comparisons for Fuji and three others at ISO 3200 and ISO 3200 for Fuji and 1600 for the other three.  Draw your own conclusions about noise and detail for each
