Summary: Love this camera. I only use adapted manual lenses so I have no issues with autofocus. Colors are great. Resolution is great. Features are great. This is my most used camera. I take it almost everywhere I go.
Summary: I converted to this smaller format from a Canon-7D. No regrets at all! The 7D is still superior in a number of ways, for example, for fast successive shots, or for the extended life of the battery, but the advantages of this smaller format with correspondingly smaller lenses has been extremely convenient and welcome and it's been much easier to lug around.
Incredible camera: build and photo quality are superb!

Summary: I cannot love this camera more. In my film days, I shot a Contax G2 rangefinder, and for the past fifteen years, I've been looking for a digital equivalent that I could afford. This camera is it. I've had it for two years and today while traveling through a small village in Oaxaca, my strap broke and the camera fell to the cobblestone street below me.
Excerpt: This Fuji XE1 and 18-55 lens has proved to be much better than I was expecting- and I have expectations ;) First off - for the price this is a crazy good deal and after firmware updates this little camera operates smooth and quick- at least plenty quick for me. I generally shoot stills, abstract, landscape, street, etc... Love the user control this camera provides. But most important- this camera is fun!
Excerpt: Price, for what you get, the Fujifilm X-E1 with the XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4.0 kit lens is a good deal. I was looking for a digital version of my sturdy old totally manual Pentax K1000 rangefinder that I formerly used all over the world in many terrains, and was initially shocked to see I might have to ante up the price of a new car for a Leica.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution
