    B&H, Adorama and Amazon are now offering new examples of Fuji's X-E1 with the kit 18-55 f/2.8-4.0 zoom for $799:

    So... what do we think? Is this worth going for with the XE-2 out there? For all of the little complaints about the X-E1, just how good or bad is it in the scheme of things?

    $1299 for XE2 vs $799 for XE1. $500 difference ...

    IQ is about the same.

    So it all comes down to better EVF, faster AF, better LCD, face detection, wifi, and better MF assist.

    Worth $500?

    Used XE1 with kit lens can be had for $600-650 too!

    I'd rather have the extra $500 in my pocket than a small stack of incremental upgrades. Frankly, the X-E2 wouldn't even be on my radar.
