Review: Fujifilm X-E2 | Jordan Steele



  • Well-built and lightweight body
  • Excellent EVF: high-resolution, low lag and nice and clear
  • Large, clear and high-resolution rear LCD with excellent viewing angles
  • Outstanding old-school control scheme with everything in easy reach
  • Camera is responsive with low shutter lag and quick operation
  • Autofocus has been improved, with incredibly fast phase-detect AF and improved and decently fast contrast-detect AF.
  • Continuous Autofocus works fairly well, and can track moving objects with good accuracy
  • 7 frame per second high-speed burst mode
  • Excellent dynamic range and color with real depth to the images
  • Low noise means shooting at high ISO is not a problem
  • WiFi for transferring images to your mobile device or geotagging your images
  • Outstanding manual focus aids, with a good implementation of focus peaking and a truly unique and capable digital split image focusing aid.


  • Buffer is shallow when shooting RAW in burst mode
  • Tripod socket is too close to the battery door
  • WiFi lacks remote control capability and connection can be a little finicky to set up
  • Only 3 frames per second burst when using continuous AF
  • Fewer bells and whistles compared to the competition
  • Video mode still lacks direct shutter speed and ISO controls
  • Auto bracketing is still very limited
  • View Mode functionality is not assignable to a function button
