X-S1 or S1?

Hi, I'm wanting people's opinion on which I should buy - the X-S1, or the S1?

Bit of background info - I have a Pentax K-5 DSLR and bought a Fuji S8200 for my kids to use to keep their hands off my 'expensive DSLR' . Recently I've got into photographing birds, and found that because most of the time I'm shooting at max zoom, the Fuji actually produces sharper images than the DSLR.

Now I'm looking to improve on the S8200, and am looking at the X-S1 and S1 Fuji cameras. So given I'm usually shooting at max zoom, which will be best? The X-S1 with a shorter focal and bigger sensor, or the S1 with the longer lens but smaller sensor?

Any help?
