It's the finder

Each camera is quite good.  The difference in the "old" vs new sensor is insignificant.  The X-E1 has a viewfinder, the X-M1 a tilting LCD but no viewfinder.

I have an X-100 and an X-M1.  I enjoy the tilting LCD for close to the ground shots.  I don't have to get down on the ground, (I'm 70).  Although that's a real convenience...I seriously think I would change it for a viewfinder and take my chances getting back up.

Each camera will be good for you.  They each will be easy to learn and to use.  I believe that the X-E1 has more features.

I bought the X-M1 to use with one specific lens and I was looking for small size and small price.
