World's fastest AF speed of 0.08 sec.** achieved via the integration of phase detection pixels into the advanced sensor.
High-speed responses from the on-sensor phase detection AF system. Accurate focusing in dark scenes that only contrast AF can deliver. The FUJIFILM X-E2 has both, plus Intelligent. Hybrid AF for automatic switching to the optimal focusing system for the scene and conditions. A newly developed algorithm improves AF accuracy when shooting low- contrast subjects and dark scenes. The evolved AF system of the FUJIFILM X-E2 brings your subject into sharp focus so quickly that priceless moments will never escape your lens.
Even more beautiful color reproduction and even higher definition image capture. The ultimate sensor, APS-C 16M X-Trans CMOS II.
X-Trans CMOS II for unmatched color reproduction.
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.
* Lens firmware update required.
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.

Overall 3.5 Stars
The bottom line is the camera is very capable. Regarding taking photos, the most limiting capability of the camera is rapidity and accurately detecting and focusing faces. The camera is unable to maintain continuous focus during video.
5 Stars - Image quality, low-light performance, better than average kit lens.
3 stars for value, pervasive focus issues, poor face detect, battery performance, very limited wi-fi feature, highly inconsistent continuous video focus which renders the video capability as non-existent, poor attention to finer design details for this price range.
The camera has great potential with firmware updates which hopefully address some of the focus issues.
To achieve sharp low-light shots, shoot in auto-iso and set max to 3200-6400, and minimum shutter speed 1/250.
I mainly purchased this camera to document our 3 month old. Deciding on investing in the X series was an exhaustive three week process of reading hundreds if not thousands of pages on the web, not just on the X-E2, but the upcoming Sony a6000 (and the Nex 6), the Nikon D7100, Canon 70D, the micro 4/3s options, and the Sony rx 100 ii.
The problem with most of the review content on the Web, especially with camera hardware, is that the most visible reviews by search engines are by 'pros', whom eventually link directly to retail sites in order to amass their kickback income. Because they have done all of his work for you, taking time away from their professional wedding schedule to review a free camera on loan which they likely have no intention of keeping, you should consider buying from their link to thank them for their humble tasting sweat.
The marketing around this camera is focus, focus, focus. This does not apply to face detect. Fuji's face detection on the X-E2 is eons behind $150 point and shoot cameras by Canon. Those same 'pros' I mentioned before will tell you face detection is a gimmick.
This is another disconnect in how camera hardware gets parsed through peer review today. The point of a small body large sensor camera is weight and profile. Getting the moment at a birthday with this camera should be casual, effortless, and anonymous. I'm not framing and setting focus points. The X-E2 reacts to faces, at best, average if not worse. It certainly disappoints. "But it is a classic looking rangefinder for street..." it should be more, it is marketed as more, it is priced as more. I'm not supposed to have to carry a point and shoot if I have a mirrorless camera, I don't care if it looks like a rangefinder, or maybe I am missing the point of mirrorless.
The selectable focal points focus fast.
Edit 3/30/14 // In the original review I lamented the ability to quickly select focal points and not being able to do so in auto focus modes. In order to select focal points in auto modes, face detect must be disabled.
As Keith Blodget points out: "To select the focus point in auto or manual modes press the down button on the 4-way controller (labeled 'af') use the 4-way pad to move the focus point, spin the command wheel to increase or decrease the focal point size, press the center 'ok' button to accept your changes." Thanks Keith
Most of the reviews are done using the faster primes. The only lens I opted for up front was the kit, since if you don't purchase the 18-55 with the camera, Fuji wants $650. It does have OIS which does beef up the cost. At 35mm it is at f/3.6.
Image Quality: In the right conditions can really produce beautiful color and dynamic range. Image quality is covered extensively here and elsewhere.
IQ: The camera can spit out some pretty beautiful images in JPEG. In low light, and sometimes in other more complex situations, it is almost like you can notice the amount of work the camera is doing to accomplish this. At 1/1000 shutter, I have heard the camera sound as it was mechanically or virtually operating for a much slower exposure (the sound the camera makes is at least partially artificial). This is complete conjecture, but it is as if the engineers are masking the processing time.
Low Light Performance: Very good to excellent for a APS-C. You are not going capture a single face in a whole crowd in focus in low light without a flash with a sensor this size, I think people have that misconception. In low light you will be using a flash for living subjects, and the built-in flash excels at providing just the right level of flash. My experience is that this is especially the case at higher ISOs. The camera works a little algorithmic magic with higher ISOs. For B&W, street, fun, 6400 is pretty impressive. 3200 is printable. This is a 16MP sensor, the presumed practical output medium at 1600 will be relatively and comparatively excellent. That said, I am very interested in how the a6000 is going to perform with its new 24MP sensor, how it will compare, and the detail and low light trade offs.
Flash: Good IQ for level, but it does not extend high enough above the camera not to cast shadows from the 18-55 lens! If there would be an X-E3, I am sure this would be fixed. Also, would it have been that difficult for a $900 - $1000 body to have a built-in lens which could be articulated to use as a bounce? Flash sync is 180 with a dedicated spot on the dial. The camera supposedly has a "daytime syncro" for daylight fill but have not used it. Not that I didn't have the opportunity, but nothing about the deeper functions of this camera are intuitive to access and the accompanying printed manual is atrocious.
People focus: Face detect is pretty slow, and gets confused easily with multiple people. Remember those fast focus marketing numbers, has nothing to do with face detect enabled. Overall, I'd estimate I had about 50% success on getting sharp focus on faces. At distance, in low light, the camera struggles with face detect.
Video focus: 1 star. Actually horrible in anything but good to great light. Testing with a single subject, mostly fixed distance, the camera struggles in medium light, losing focus for seemingly no reason. Essentially, consider this camera without a video feature. Edit 3/30/14 // With over an hour of shooting video, manual is the only way to get any keepsake video out of the camera. Face detect and the camera's ability to motion track are very poor. //
Video Quality: Can really be awing if the camera manages to retain subject focus. I purchased the X-E2 with video in mind as a primary function. This is the state of cameras. For anyone to tell you video on a camera is a secondary feature today is probably using a typewriter. (Also no 24p)
EVF: Sometimes doesn't react quickly enough and you are staring at darkness in the view finder.
Batter: Worst-in-class, worst I have ever seen on a camera of any type and size.
Features: Overall lacking for a $900 - $1000 body!!
Wi-fi - what a pointless and half hearted execution. This was a really big disappointment. The app (android also IOS avail) allows sharing photos to the phone. There is absolutely no remote function, no remote view, or any other function for that matter of the app.
Screen - Beautiful. But not a touch screen. And a touch to focus would have been nice. Also does not articulate, which I did not realize how handy this would be until shooting the birthday recently.
HDR - The camera lacks built-in HDR and only supports bracketing (3) in +-1 stops. Again, to 'pros' this is a hokey feature and can be done post. Whatever, it should be in the camera and I would have liked it there.
No Dedicated Video Record button - This would of course go against the retro range-finder design I suppose.
Panoramic - Works well.
Printed Manual: Basic.
This is a sophisticated camera that will reward the more experienced photographer and not one that an amateur might appreciate as much. You will not find most of the "scene modes" that you find on most point & shoot cameras... like Fireworks, Candlelight, Sports, Portrait, etc. You can have full manual control of all aspects of the camera... ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speed, Exposure Compensation, bracketing, function buttons, the whole shebang... it's pretty powerful. In fact, this is the first camera I've owned in quite a while where I felt I really needed to dive into the manual to read up on everything. And get this... this camera comes with an honest to goodness manual. Hallelujah! You mean I don't have to struggle with a cheesy quick start pamphlet and then visit a website to download a PDF of the manual? No... it actually comes with a manual. 130 pages.
I've tried using several other smaller cameras including a Lumix DMC-LX5, Nikon Coolpix L110, several Canon Elph models the most recent of which was the PowerShot Elph 110HS but have continually found them lacking in so many ways as to make me revert back to my bulky DSLR. They all could take sometimes great photos but they were also deficient in many ways whether it be lousy low-light performance, inability to shoot indoors very well, or capture shots of fidgety children.
The Fujifilm X-E2 is spectacular to behold in a very understated and retro kind of way. It's got pebble-grain leather covering the body... how many cameras have pebble-grain leather covering the body? I mean, maybe 30-40 years ago, but not today. But don't let what it looks like on the outside fool you into thinking it isn't up-to-date inside.

➤ Camera Body
It's not as small a body as you might think. It feels quite good in the hand. I feel I can grip the camera securely because it has a very understated yet effective hand-grip and rear thumb rest. It really is a two-handed camera. It's a solid camera and feels extremely well-built. You'll immediately notice that the dials are not plastic but substantial machined metal. A feeling of real quality. There is no squeaking or creaking of the body as it is handled due to the fact that the top and base plates are fabricated of die-cast magnesium alloy. It gives the camera a feeling of rigidity.
➤ Camera Sensor
It's packing some worthy stuff on the inside as well including a 16.3 megapixel APS-C, X-Trans CMOS II sensor. This sensor gives the camera a crop factor of 1.5 meaning a 18mm-55mm lens will be equivalent to 27mm-82mm in a 35mm format. It is this sensor, that helps provide excellent image quality and superior low-light performance with absolutely minimal noise and useable high ISO settings.
➤ The Electronic Viewfinder and LCD display
There is no optical viewfinder but rather a 3" LCD display on the back and one of the best OLED Electronic Viewfinders I've seen. I'm not a big fan of EVF's but this one is at least good enough not to dissuade me from using it. The viewfinder has a diopter adjustment on the left side. I have no problem using the viewfinder with my glasses.
Both the LCD and EVF provide a 100% view of the shot which eliminates the guesswork of what is and is not going to end up in the photo. I've never been a fan of Electronic Viewfinders but this one may change my mind because it is quite good. You can actually see all of the information in the EVF that you would normally see on the larger LCD screen. And a really cool feature is that as soon as you hold the camera up to your eye, a sensor automatically turns the EV on while turning off the back LCD because of an eye sensor on the right side of the viewfinder. You can configure how you'd like this to work. The EV does have a bit of lag in really low light and I do have some issues with EVF's in low light for other reasons. But it is far better than any electronic viewfinder I've ever used before.
This camera can use interchangeable lenses but comes with a very worthy 18-55mm lens with an aperture range of f/2.8-4. That's a pretty fast lens and in conjunction with the ability to shoot at high ISO settings this camera excels at taking great photos with available light and super great shots in low-light that other cameras would do poorly in.
➤ Focus Speed
This camera with the 18-55mm kit lens focuses very quickly. If you have the "pre-AF" on, you will find even faster final focusing when you're ready to take a shot. The AF illuminator LED helps in low light situations. I am not too pleased with the positioning of the LED itself as it is very easy to block it while holding the camrea with your right hand depending on how you grip the camera.
➤ Start-up time and shutter lag
I've missed so many shots with other cameras when waiting for the camera to turn on. Interminable delays of a few seconds startup time are a thing of the past with the X-E2. This thing starts up and is ready to fire in just 0.5 seconds. It's that fast. And shutter lag is nearly imperceptible. Trying to get shots of kids running around, or other action shots requires a camera with a very low shutter lag so that you can capture the moment at the exact instant you need to. The X-E2 has a really short shutter lag... so short that it is not even really noticeable. And the camera is fast to write to memory so that you only begin to notice a short between shots delay if you've filled the buffer with rapid shots. But even then you are ready to go in just a few seconds.
➤ Image Quality
You can shoot in Fine, Normal, Fine + RAW, Normal + RAW or RAW.
Movies are H.264 (MOV) with stereo sound.
➤ Memory Card
The camera can use SD/SDHC/SDXC cards
➤ Battery and Charger
I'm very frustrated that the camera does not support in-camera battery charging via USB. On numerous occasions I have found myself with a dead battery and no charger. If the camera had supported in camera charging, it would have been a trivial action to connect it to an AC USB charger or USB car charger or even a higher capacity batterypack to charge the camera battery. But unfortunately that is not possible with this camera. Best advice is to have at least one additional fully charged battery with you.
I do not find the shutter sound to be excessively loud. Rather it is a soft clunk. To me it sounds of quality.
You have a lot of customization options with the function button and a "Q" button can be used to quickly access and adjust many camera settings. This is awesome as it eliminates the need to wade through levels of menu options to change a setting. This allows much quicker access to what you need to change.
This is a beautiful functional camera.
