Fujifilm X-E2 Hands-on Previews | Thomas Menk

Some more hands-on Fuji X-E2 reviews:

Along with many photographers, we liked the X-E1. It offers the same image quality as the superb X-Pro1 in a smaller body and has what we consider the more useful of the two viewfinders – the electronic finder, which has been improved so that it’s better in low light. The X-E2 seems like a progression of the X-E1 rather than a huge step forward so it will be interesting to see how much difference the improvements make. Will X-E1 users be queuing to upgrade?

Both the new screen, and the high resolution electronic viewfinder look very good when you are using the camera, and the built in eye-detection sensor means the camera will automatically switch to the electronic viewfinder when it held up to your eye. We will be putting the camera through our full review when production versions of the camera are available, and it will be interesting to see how the new camera performs, both in terms of improved image quality but also in terms of speed.

First Impressions: The X-E2 isn’t a camera for someone to upgrade to. Instead, it feels like a camera that someone will instead just want to come to the Fujifilm system for. If you’ve got an X Pro 1 or X-E1, stick with what you’ve got and continue to focus on taking great pictures. But so far, we’re not convinced that the X-E2 is a very big upgrade at all.

All that goodness makes the X-E2 seem like a logical step forward, the sort of camera that’s improving a large slice of the moans that users and critics alike threw its way. We’d still like a more capacitive battery on board, and that exposure compensation dial still isn’t immune from being knocked, but otherwise everything is a step forward. Big thumbs up then.

The new Fujifilm X-E2 offers more features, better handling and importantly faster performance than its predecessor, which we already loved, making it our favourite X-series camera and one of the best compact system cameras around. Fujifilm have clearly listened to their users and produced a camera that may look very much like the original X-E1, but which improves on it in virtually all ways. Speed is one of the key improvements. The X-E1 suffered from slightly sluggish auto-focusing and generally slow performance, whereas the X-E2 with its new hybrid AF system offers satisfyingly quick focusing coupled with much improved start-up and shot-to-shot times, as well as slightly faster burst shooting. The X-E2 also benefits from a much improved LCD screen, addition of wi-fi connectivity, improved video recording, and Digital Split Image and Focus Peaking for easier manual focusing – just a few of the many ways that Fujifilm have updated this new model – while retaining the original model’s excellent electronic viewfinder and sublimely intuitive control layout.
