Went to the local Camera Store and saw a brand new XE-2, which I liked, and the focusing was indeed quite fast. Felt slightly small in my hands, but not terribly so. They also had a used X-Pro 1 that was in great shape- had the old version of Firmware, but the speed of the autofocus was snail-like. However, I plan on using some legacy Soviet-Era lenses.. MF only.. so that issue is not a deal-breaker. The X-Pro 1 was more substantial and better built.. and the optical VF might be used down the road when I use the Fuji lenses. My decision making process completely stopped- because of one simple fact: I don't know if the most important thing- Image Quality - would be the same between the two.. that is, will the newer sensor and enhancements drastically affect Image Quality?
