Other than these little annoying things, including the AF in low light, i LOVE the color output out of the XE1.

Sorry to say this, but based on the exif data you are not using the camera correctly.

In your first photo, for instance, the camera cannot properly expose the scene with an Aperture of f/18 and an ISO of 200. It is simply not possible

Not really. As I mentioned in my reply below, the X-E1 couldn't really use a smaller aperture because if it used its built-in flash the shutter speed was limited to 1/250th sec. (more or less) but then the aperture had to be extremely small to prevent blowing out the background. That's the problem with shutters that require slow flash sync speeds. P&S cameras (and Fuji's X100/X100s) can use their flashes with much shorter/faster shutter speeds which in turn allows the use of more reasonable wider apertures.
