Fujifilm's unique X-Trans CMOS II array eliminates the need for an OLPF, enabling the sensor to capture unfiltered light from the lens for an precedented level of resolution.
Lens Modulation Optimizer technology brings out the full potential of the XF lens.
The advanced Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) technology in the FUJIFILM X-E2 was made possible by the integrated development of the lens, sensor and processor. For each mounted lens, LMO high-precision processing of the lens focal length and aperture, as well as data from the screen center to the edges, corrects diffraction blur when shooting with a stopped down aperture and compensates for the slight blurring in the lens periphery. The result is edge-to-edge image quality with incredible sharpness and a sense of dimensional reality.

X-Trans CMOS II Sensor
Capture each strand of hair in crisp detail.
Due to the X-Trans CMOS II sensor architecture that eliminates the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF) and integrates FUJFILM's originally developed color filter array, the FUJIFILM X-E2 reproduces scenes with resolution and clarity rivaling a larger sensor.
Repeating pattern in the case of an array of 2 x 2 pixel units.
New Filter Array
Higher degree of randomness with an array of 6 x 6 pixel units.
X-Trans CMOS II sensor incorporates an original color filter array with a highly random pattern, eliminating the need for an optical low-pass filter (OLPF). These filters are used in conventional systems to inhibit moiré at the expense of resolution. The X-Trans CMOS II sensor array lets the sensor capture unfiltered light from the lens, achieving an unprecedented level of resolution.
Intelligent Hybrid Auto Focus
World's fastest AF speed of 0.08 sec.* achieved via the integration of phase detection pixels into the advanced sensor.

In August '14 I sold my last DSLR and moved to the Fuji X-E2. My reasoning: I wanted high quality equipment capable of good 11X14 prints in a much smaller package. My shooting is 90% still life / landscape with very little time spent with fast moving sports and zero need for video. I chose the Fuji X-E2 because I wanted to get back that rangefinder shooting experience I enjoyed and to have a less obtrusive camera. The reviews were solid for the camera before I purchased it.
If you want the quick answer, I did make the right decision and I am very happy with the camera. If you'd like more opinion and observation, read on!
Do I shoot more now that I have a smaller, takealong camera? No I don't because life remains as busy as ever. I do enjoy shooting more during the opportunities that do come along. Less weight, less kit, less to carry. I found that with a DSLR I tended to be more removed from events - with the X-E2 I can be more engaged. Nothing makes a better social barrier than a stuffed camera bag (common with a DSLR), people simply tend to give you a wider berth.
Comparing the X-E2 to my DSLR equipment finds that fit and finish are to higher tolerances on the Fuji camera. No, I never owned a top model Canon or Nikon but I sold them and handled them a lot. The X-E2 is in the same class as a top DSLR for quality construction. There isn't a creaky seam or joint on the camera and the lenses I have are pleasingly solid. (Weather resistant seals are a feature, not a construction point in this comparison.)
Performance: The X-E2 will never perform as well as a mid-level DSLR when it comes to focus tracking a moving object. But this is to be expected of a rangefinder-style camera. Just a personal rule of thumb: Rangefinders capture moments, DSLRs capture events. Is capturing kids soccer a prime need? Buy a Nikon D5200 or a Canon Rebel. Need serious lighting control for studio, portraits, or weddings? Go with a mid-level or higher DSLR. But if it is at all affordable, also buy the X-E2 for the rest of life that happens off the field and after the wedding dance.
X-E2 Image quality: Stunning at 16mp. Don't use megapixel counts as the determining factor in your camera purchase. Just don't. It is a consideration, but to some extent similar to buying a car based only on engine size.
Soapbox time: Many photographers are far too hung up on pixel count, it's an easy number that seems to act like a useful scorecard. Yet I have sold 20+ megapixel cameras to customers who never make a print and only share through the web. This tends toward overkill. Please don't fall into this mindset, consider the image's final usage. To make a very high quality 11X14 at 300dpi only requires 13.8 megapixels (most optical photo printers can only do 250dpi).
'More pixels mean greater ability to crop...' yes, but it takes only a little more skill development to capture the image the best way in-camera. And we have to be aware that there is no free lunch, more pixels on the same size chip means smaller pixels that each capture less light. Amazing advances are happening around pixel sensitivity and size, but it still takes a lot of digital scrubbing to remove noise from high ISO images taken with high pixel APS-C sensors. OK, enough of the soapbox...
Workflow: Early on the Fuji X-series had some serious issues with post processing - the unique sensor Fuji used wasn't well supported by common editing software. This is no longer the case, in my workflow which consists of Lightroom and Photoshop CS6 I experience no speedbumps during import and no degradation in image quality.
Did I Make the Right Decision? For the way I shoot, yes. I couldn't be happier. I haven't missed any shots due to camera performance and I have taken more successful shots on each excursion with the camera. If I were still selling cameras I would suggest the X-E2:
* As a primary model to photographers who want to develop their shooting skills with a camera that rewards the effort
* I would strongly suggest the X-E2 as a backup, take along, or travel camera for DSLR hobbyists or semi-pro shooters.
* Any photographer who wants an exceptional manual camera experience yet also expects outstanding fully program shooting
* As a worthwhile choice to those who love street photography
I wouldn't immediately suggest the X-E2 as a step up for a higher-end compact camera shooter. While the X-E2 is excellent in full program operation, it lacks the other 'easy modes' such as Portrait, Sports, and Landscape that these shooters tend to like. If the photographer is looking to grow and expand their skill set too, then the X-E2 becomes a viable option.
The Fuji X-E2 expects that the photographer begins with (or soon acquires) some understanding of exposure, composition, and camera handling. For that group of photographers, the X-E2 will consistently exceed expectations while capturing stunning image quality.
Images: Warping Machine, Amana Iowa. Fine detail in the crossing threads without any moire. View from Hoover Dam and a 100% crop from the same image.
I wanted something less expensive, and I also wanted the ability to change lenses in the future. So, I arrived at the X-E2. Most of today's Fujflm X-series cameras have the same X-Trans CMOS II Sensor, so pictures should come out similar under similar circumstances.
I didn't buy it with the kit lens, however. I opted for the body only and Fuji's 27 mm pancake. The lens deserves its own review, so this is only for the camera itself.
The Fujifilm X-E2 is an excellent camera for those who enjoy DSLR's and those who enjoy point-and-shoot cameras. You can set it all on automatic or shoot in priority modes or fully manual. It has a customization quick menu (Q menu) for selecting shooting modes, almost every button can be set with any available function, film simulation, ISO, and so on. There's a drive menu for bracketing, advanced film modes (like toy camera, black and white or black and white with green, blue, red, or purple isolation and more), burst mode (7fps) and other settings. Up top you'll see the exposure compensation dial, shutter speed dial, and another dial that is used for aperture control when using a lens without an aperture ring.
I shot exclusively in high performance mode, so I can only speak for that. Auto focus really is fast, advertised at 0.08 seconds. It was good enough for me doing street photography in NYC. The processor is quite fast as well. I shot in RAW+JPEG(fine), RAW, and JPEG(fine) and didn't notice any crippling lag after taking the shot.
The electronic viewfinder is something to get used to if you've been using optical viewfinders. You're looking through the viewfinder at a tiny screen. It's great for manual focusing because you'll see an enlarged image of what you're focusing on. I actually liked this better than the X100T's hybrid viewfinder's focus peak highlight which highlighted the focus area with an outline, and digital split image which shows a tiny picture-in-picture of the object. But for me, it was still a little weird to put my eye to the viewfinder and be presented with a bright screen (yes the brightness is adjustable).
If you're shooting in manual in low light, you'll need to go into the menu to disable "preview exposure in manual mode". If you don't, you'll be looking into a dark viewfinder. I didn't know this at first and had to search online to find out how to see through the viewfinder when shooting in low light.
The build quality doesn't feel as good as I remember from the X100T. The metal on top and bottom feel more like plastic. It feels less solid overall. But keep in mind, the X100 series start at over $1000, so of course something less expensive will feel less premium. Most DSLR's are plastic anyway. I think I was just spoiled by my experience.
The grip was comfortable for me, but I'm a lean, 5'10" guy... so I'd imagine people with larger or thicker hands, or arthritis might experience some discomfort.
The LCD screen is really nice. Not as great as the latest high end smartphone, but it's way better than most digital camera displays I've seen. You'll be able to get a very good idea of what your photos will look like your computer.
Overall, the X-E2 is a great camera for professionals, given the camera's great sensor and manual controls and Fuji's range of excellent lenses (I've read that the kit lens is wonderful too). It'll definitely shed some weight and free up space in your camera bag. I am not a professional, but I've used professional cameras in my college days and this camera definitely seems to compete well.
For those of you who just like to have a good camera for traveling, parties, documenting your child's lives... you can't really go wrong with this. It's lighter and frankly nicer looking than clunky DSLR's. Having the X-E2 around your neck while walking for hours at a theme park, or maneuvering throughout the sea of parents at the graduation or recital will be easier with such a light camera.
**Attached are photos saved in JPEG (fine) directly from the camera**
If I had to complain about something it would be that it's a little hard to hold onto without the MHG-XE grip, but the size is part of the reason I bought it.
I've spent a lot more on cameras that weren't nearly as good as the X-E2. The quality of the images, ease of use, and feature set are a great value for the cost of this camera.
