Summary: I immediately appreciated the Fujifilm X-E1 , since in practice the “cousin” with interchangeable lenses. But it is undeniable that this new system is a really good party: good and excellent optical sensors.
Conclusion: The Fuji X-E1 may be the baby brother to Fuji's flagship X-Pro1, but in many ways is its equal. Most importantly, the two cameras share the same impressive 16.3-megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor, which produces image quality superior to most APS-C-sensor-based digital SLRs, but in arguably more...
Pros: Significantly less expensive than Fuji's flagship CSC, but with many of the same features, Really excellent image quality overall, JPEGs are very clean, with very conservative sharpening. (Who needs RAWs?), Lots of resolution and detail from 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS sensor thanks to absence of l...

Summary: With an asking price of £1149 with the rather lovely 18-55mm f/2.8-4 lens, it goes right up against the similarly retro-inspired 16MP Olympus OM-D, which comes in at the same price with the slightly broader 12-50mm, though with a variable maximum aperture of f/3.5-6.3.
Summary: The Fuji X-E1 follows the X-Pro1 with the same 16 MP CMOS sensor that delivers class-leading image quality thanks to its unique X-Trans sensor which does not use an anti-alias filter. The X-E1 is an excellent successor to the X-Pro1.
Pros: Class-leading image quality, Extremely low image noise up to ISO 6400, Excellent sharpness, Great color accuracy, Above average metering system, Good white-balance, Superb EVF, Plenty of direct controls, Instant video response, Excellent build quality
Cons: Very slow autofocus in low-light, Sluggish autofocus in good light, Slow shot-to-shot speed, Not Exposure-Priority, Fractional shutter-speeds get reset, Only one Fn button, No AE-L in MF mode, Soft aperture detents, Short battery-life
Summary: A smaller and sleeker Fuji X-Pro1... what's not to like?
Pros: Improved autofocus, Retro design, Lots of dials, Fantastic EVF, The improved autofocus speeds that Fuji's new firmware brings, coupled with the 18-55mm kit lens, make this a fantastic camera to easily take on its DSLR rivals.
Cons: Not a touchscreen, Can't shoot raw in all situations, Hidden video mode, There's not many things to dislike about the camera, with just a few small niggles keeping it from perfection. It would be nice to have seen a touchscreen, while the autofocus speed when using other lenses could do with bein...
Excerpt: was launched earlier this year. The X-E1 is a more compact model, with an electronic viewfinder instead of the optical/electronic hybrid in the X-Pro1, and sees the introduction of a new 18-55mm lens with optical image stabilisation.
Pros: Brighter than normal kit lens (f2.8 - f/4), Impressive noise performance up to ISO6400, Impressive colour reproduction, Great build quality and handling, Film simulation modes, High resolution EVF, Good panoramics
Cons: Indoor white balance could be better, Expensive lenses / price of kit, Kit lens could be wider, Exposure compensation dial easy to knock

Conclusion: The Fujifilm X-E1 is a modern-day classic, but not in the mainstream sense. It's like a cult movie - it will perfectly fit the niche for some, why others will think it's mad. On the one hand this retro-styled, medium-sized compact system camera is expensive (£1,149 expensive) and lacks the kind of...
