Worth upgrading to X-E2 from X-E1 for improved EVF?

I bought a used X-E1 a year ago. The photo quality is decent and the size/weight is great but I'm tearing my hair due to the EVF lag (low framerate?) and slow AF. I can get around the AF by going manual but EVF lag is always there.

So I've considered getting a X-E2 and now I found one for $200. I'm hoping it's not a huge loss if I'm able to sell my X-E1. My question is if the EVF and AF is so much better on the X-E2 that it justifies the purchase?

Based on this video, there seems to be an improvement but still not great:

A year after the video was taken, Fujifilm released a new firmware claiming to "enhance the frame rate of the EVF" but I can't find any examples of it.

Will I notice a big improvement or do I have too high expectations from regularly using a DSLR?
