    I have an X100S and an XE1 with no lens.

    Do I sell the XE1? Get a zoom lens? I was thinking the 55-200

    Thoughts?

    That's a pretty difficult question to answer without any other information. If you're comfortable with just the X100S, the X-E1 body in like new condition would likely fetch about $350. If you would rather keep it and add a lens, either of the XF zooms would offer more flexibility than your X100S. Do you typically shoot in the normal range or do you prefer telephoto?

    I shoot mixed but mostly cars at events.

    I had the xe1 with the 35mm but even that was still too long, it was hard to capture the whole car, and if it did, there would be people getting in the way

    I was going to get the 23mm but decided to get the X100s.

    The only other lens I have used was the 55-200 when i rented one for a formula 1 event, i definitely enjoyed it.

    I would like a 10-23 or 14 but i feel I am wasting my money being its fairly close to the range of the x100s

    The 14mm is far far wider than the 23mm of the X100S.

    You might also consider the WCL-X100 wide angle converter for your X100S.
