Bought a new tripod/head over an X-T2, did I do the right thing?

I shoot landscapes mostly. I just noticed that my 7 year old cheap manfrotto was getting bad (wobbly center column), and it was short for me anyways.

I also got a panoramic head so I could shoot around the nodal point. All together it cost me $800.

However, now I'm thinking I could've just upgraded my X-E1 to an X-T2. I think the X-T2 just makes landscape photography so effortless: bulb like exposure without a cable release, real aeb bracketing, tilt screen.

My X-E1 still works fine, but damn it's such a process doing some things efficiently.
