Fujifilm X-E1 review at Neo Camera: Image quality of the Fuji X-E1 is top-notch and exceeds all non-Fuji mirrorless cameras. Image noise is virtually inexistent until ISO 3200 and slowly progresses without the usual added softness of noise reduction.

"The Fuji X-E1 is a great successor to the X-Pro1. It keeps the highly tactile interface and unique 16 megapixels X-Trans CMOS sensor while improving in key areas. The more compact design is critical to success among a growing number of mirrorless cameras, plus the new ultra-high-resolution 2.4 megapixels EVF makes for an exceptional usability at eye-level. Image quality of the Fuji X-E1 is top-notch and exceeds all non-Fuji mirrorless cameras. Image noise is virtually inexistent until ISO 3200 and only slowly progresses without the usual added softness of noise-reduction. The output of this camera is completely usable for mid-size prints until ISO 25600. Sharpness is reasonably good with the Fuji Fujinon XF 18-55mm

F/2.8-4R LM OIS but can be excellent with a prime lens. Metering, color and white-balance are all very good too.

While the X-E1 shows some good performance numbers and is a generally speedy camera, it falters when it comes to focusing. Autofocus speed is sluggish, particularly in low-light. Whereas the X-Pro1 struggled even in moderate indoor lighting, the Fuji X-E1 clearly does better, yet remains behind the fastest mirrorless cameras.

As an early XF-Mount camera, the X-E1 presents a difficult choice. The amazing image quality is very attractive but having a choice of only a few lenses limits photographic potential. However, the Fuji X-E1 is competitively priced according to image quality, given how well it compares with much more expensive DSLRs"
