cool photos though

so pretty much, xe2 = x100s guts in an xe1
on a component by component basis nothing that fuji hadn't already released before.

nice improvement in the EVF framerate from 20fps to 80
(edit: sorry it's actually 50-60)

Would be wonderful if it did, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

How does Fuji get away with "World's fastest auto focus speed" when it's obviously not true?

I'd bet the E-M1 wipes the floor with the X-E2 in regards to focus speed

yes it will, because the only lens that can currently utilise PDAF in a fuji camera straight out of the box is the 23/1.4
Firmware updates expected for all other lenses, hopefully by the time the camera starts shipping.

and oh man, a +/-3 exposure comp dial, woohoo
this can potentially kill the M mode for me

I'm going to preorder. These improvements are enough that it may just make it all I need. DPReview said it brings AF up to par with Sony, which is pretty good.

It's very tempting to order. The AF was the biggest issue for me in the XE-1 but it seems to have been greatly improved.

Wow an actual, negative preview from Ming. That's amazing to me.

That said, I'll skip this - I was really, really hoping for a tilting rear LCD, which has got to be the feature I most-miss about my current gear setup

Having read Ming's review, I wouldn't call it negative, rather he seems more underwhelmed than anything. He makes a few comments in the comment section that make it clear that he thinks it's a distinct improvement over the X-E1, but he just seems to think that Fuji could have put a little more thought into it to get a lot more camera (and likely still could via firmware updates). And he's unhappy with workflow due to the ACR/LR conversion issues, which he thinks Fuji could have helped Adobe resolve.

$999 is a bit high considering that you can get the E1 plus 18-55 for the same price. On the other hand, Fuji prices drop fast. The E2 will probably be $600 by Christmas.

he didnt know that the lenses he used will need a firmware update before they can utilise XE2's PDAF...
read the other review I linked a couple of posts up

not that I'd know how to do an AF speed comparison, but to me my x100s definitely feels faster than my xpro1, pretty much with every lens.

Haha I'd be surprised if any but the usual Fuji crowd/suspects buy this, outside of their upgrade cycle.
Seems like an apple release.

considering the only real complaint i could level at the x-e1 is the af speed, this model seems good enough.

not every camera needs to reinvent the wheel.

I am going to pass on this one. I will look at the camera at PhotoPlus in NYC on Thursday, October 24. But, since I am getting the new Sony A7r (pre-ordered), I can not afford both new cameras and possibly purchasing some M mount WA lenses for the Sony. The FF format is more important to me than the APS-C format.

I will continue to use my X-E1 which will become my second or back-up body.
