I'm also an X-E1 user. My 5DII won't be sold though.
I don't agree with Brody about the focus. The AF of the 5DII isn't fantastic, but it still destroys Fuji IMHO. Shooting an event with the Canon is so much easier and I never had problems with it.
That being said I really like Fuji. The colors are so nice, better dynamic range, better ISO performance,... and it's small/light!
I hardly ever regret leaving my 5DII at home now.
The AF on my 5Dm2 destroys the AF on my X-E1. It's not even close.
Look, I use my 5Dmk2 for professional photojournalism-- which purely AF alone on the X-E1 basically rules out using the Fuji for that capacity in any kind of stand-alone way.
Also, I still think image quality goes to the 5D2. The canon produces wildly good results, day in and day out.
Yeah, high ISO might go to the Fuji, but I'm not entirely sure yet. Fuji totally overstates ISO sensitivity. Its 3200 is less sensitive than 3200 from other cameras.
Auto WB goes to Fuji. But natural color reproduction goes to my 5D2. Fuji has nice colors, but they're definitely not neutral.
I'm not so sure about DR, though my gut tells me the 5D2 wins. That might be because I'm still shooting jpg on the Fuji...
The resolution difference does make a difference.
In other words: No way am I getting rid of my 5D2. I love the Fuji too, but it's a different, more quirky, smaller, fun tool. Easy to carry all day. Great low light. Sharp files.
The day I can ditch my DSLR and get the same performance/IQ from something Fuji X-E1 sized-- without losing the versatility-- will be the day my DSLR goes bye-bye. Until then... nope.
