The Fujifilm X-E2 is the second generation of the company's mid-range mirrorless camera. It features a 16MP X-Trans CMOS II sensor that gains on-sensor phase detection over the one used in previous models. A unique digital-split-image focus aid (introduced in the X100S) and a 1.04m dot LCD are the major changes - the X-E2 is mainly about handling and operations tweaks. The camera shoots at speeds of up to 7 fps and can record video at 1080/60p with AF tracking. The X-E2 also features built-in Wi-Fi, which allows for easy photo sharing via your mobile device.

All the Right Moves...
The X-E2, combined with the XF 23mm f/1.4 R, is simply stunning in build,performance, and IQ. This combo is the interchangeable (14 total lens) and robust version of Fuji's wildly popular X100S. Fuji will soon make available their XF 10-24mm f/4.0 R OIS zoom (with stabilization) for landscape and XF 56mm f/1.2 R for serious portrait work.
18-55mm rotating front element? And focus points in EVF?
I've researched and researched til I'm blurry eyed. But can't seem to find the answer to these two questions: 1) Does the front element of the 18-55mm rotate? I use a polarizing filter occasionally and hate to deal with the rotation of the lens. 2) Do you see and can you change the focus points in the EVF or just on the LCD screen? I finally got to hold the X-E2 at a local camera shop - love it. Unfortunately, there was no power to the battery. But I was able to play a little with the XPro1 to take a look at the older EVF to get the feel for it while I was there. Thank you to everyone for all their posts on here - it's been extremely helpful in my making the decision to buy the X-E2 (haven't quite had the nerve to hit the 'buy' button yet) but hopefully with the correct answers to these questions I can hit 'buy' without hesitation because these seem to be the last two questions I have on my list to get answered. Thanks again -
Traveling: E-M5 or X-E2. Which would you bring?
I have two kits at home, and am debating which one to bring while traveling: Olympus OM-D E-M5 (1) 14mm f/2.5 (2) 25mm f/1.4 (3) 45mm f/1.8 Fuji X-E2 (1) Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 I can definitely see the pros/cons of bringing either. For the Olympus, it's the full range of lens choices, fast AF, and great EVF. It's the camera I trust to get the right shots. For the Fuji, though limited to one (manual) lens, that limitation can in a way be freeing - no need to change lenses. The EVF still doesn't quite compare to the Olympus though, and having to manually focus I will likely miss many shots. There is also one important point: the Fuji makes me want to go out and take pictures, whereas the Olympus feels like a tool. Which would you pick?
As someone who shoots travel not only for pleasure but also for work, I beg you to ignore some of the advice you have been given thus far. This is not about "my camera is better than yours" type arguments, and I actually think you spelled out the answer for yourself here. Let me explain. That's it right there. It pretty much ends with that last statement. You HAVE TO trust your equipment. Period. End of story. The Fuji X-E2 can be a very trustworthy camera, even more so than previous models due to AF improvements and various other advancements, however, learning to trust your gear is best done under low risk circumstances, where "getting the shot" is not all that important to you. Typically, going on vacation or some sort of travel arrangement is an occasion where you want to take in the scenery and shoot with ease, allowing your camera to be an extension of you as much as possible, not something you aren't fully sure of. It doesn't matter what camera or what manufacturer. This is ... Continue Reading
I would sell the Olympus kit, which you clearly don't enjoy using, and buy a decent set of Fuji lenses. Then take the XE2. Continue Reading
X-E2 RAW and pink faces
I've been using the xe2 and Sony A7 for the past few days. I've really enjoyed the xe2 more and want to go the Fuji route. At 6400 iso there really isn't enough difference to make me keep both. The only problem I'm having is the pink skin and faces when shooting raw and converting I'm LR5.3. I don't want to shoot jpeg at 3200 and up because fuji seems to smear the skin. Is there another way to work with the raw files to get the rednes out? I don't have any problems with objects other than skin it seems.
Are you seeing high ISO skin smoothing in raw images? Sal Continue Reading
Need to use a different converter or hope adobe gets it's sorted with the final release. Your issues sound along the same lines as the purple face shadows and blotches everybody has been getting using Lightroom 5.3 Continue Reading
Yes it's the same pink as other posters have talked about. I'll post some photos later when I can. I've had the pink/purple cast on the almost the whole face. I've tried to use the brush and change the temp but it's a deal beaker if I can't use raw files if people. The raw file doesn't smear at all. Continue Reading
