I have it, along with the 18-55 and 35. It's a great piece of glass, with surprisingly little (to no) distortion. AF speed is between the 18-55 (fastest of the bunch) and the 35. Otherwise, I agree with Jochenb's comments.
I've not had a chance to shoot anything meaningful yet (with the X-E1 in general, let alone the 14 specifically). I received my Hoya 9-stop Variable ND today, so weather permitting I'm going to head out over the next couple days in pursuit of some worthwhile samples.
Until then, here are a few snaps I've posted in other thread(s).
14 f/2.8 @ f/3.6 (inadvertently moved from f/8 due to "loose" aperture ring!), handheld while walking, Auto ISO (200), 1/600 sec, in-camera jpg, SEP2 BW conversion
14 f/2.8 @ f/3.6 (see above), handheld, Auto ISO (200), 1/550 sec, in-camera jpg, SEP2 BW conversion, no distortion correction needed
14 f/2.8 @ f/6.4, handheld, Auto ISO (200), 1/640 sec, in-camera jpg (processed)
The shadow detail in the following is impressive (particularly viewed full size)
14 f/2.8 @ f/11, handheld, Auto ISO (200), 1/200 sec, in-camera jpg (processed)
Black soldier in a black coat sitting on a dark horse in the shadow of his post, and there's plenty of detail ... even in the jpg!
14 f/2.8 @ f/4, handheld, Auto ISO (200), 1/800 sec, in-camera jpg (processed), SEP2 BW conversion, no distortion correction needed
100% crop of above
Flat, flat, flat light. Blech. Still, it was a beautiful scene with the rider and horse crossing the pasture.
Fuji 14 f/2.8 @ 4.0 (wish I'd gone to f/8 or 11) | ISO 200 (auto) | 1/150 sec (auto) | RAW w/processing in PS CS6
Look past this guy's poor grooming. He was lying in the grass, minding his own business, when I approached him for a portrait. Those leaves / grass blades were an unfortunate side effect of him coming over to greet me.

And here's a 100% crop of the swan's head, unsharpened and literally from the camera. Focus was on the head. Despite the fact he was moving, and this is outside the center of the frame, it still shows great sharpness/detail (accounting for shallow DOF). The 14 f/2.8 is a nice lens.
