Nothing better than autumn. My favorite season of the year.

Real nice photos. Great colouring and details. You must be really pleased with the Fuji XE1. I am looking at the moment at the XE2 as they are quite reasonable in price here at the moment NZ.$700  Always a dead giveaway for a impending new model coming.

Yeah  - I picked up the XE-1 a bit after the release of the XE-2. Packed up with the kit lens the body was nearly free. I've been totally pleased with it. It's tack sharp and light - so it can come up these mountains with me without breaking my back. I took my D700 hiking with me once…. it has a comfy home at work now. I do use a polarizing filter. Without it there would be some haze. 

I'm waiting for the long lens and the teleconverter.

I picked up an X-E2 (to upgrade from an X-E1) a few months ago and I'm very pleased with it. I'd be interested to see if there is a new model in that series (e.g. X-E3) as reports I've read suggested that the X-Ex model range is being replaced by the X-T10 type cameras. Personally, I would like there to be new bodies in the X-E2 form factor as I prefer the ergonomics of it to the X-T10.

I agree - I'm small with small hands and I like the ergonomics of the X-E line quite well. I know the X-T's are not that much bigger, but I still prefer the cleaner lines and no-prism look on the E's. Not to mention that everyone thinks it's a film camera.. 

How much difference do you see in the focus speed with the XE-2? I'm not that often photographing things were it really makes a difference (I use a manual focus macro lens a lot of the time…) but occasionally for birds and such I do find there's can be a bit of hunting.

I only have one AF lens (18/2) and have only used it on the X-E2, never on the X-E1, so I'm not really sure what the AF is like between the two models. There are quite big differences between the two in terms of EVF performance and manual focusing aids.

@morpheme, I have used both the X-E1 and the X-E2 with the XF 28-85 and the X-E2 has some appreciable focus improvement. Nothing mindblowing though; the focus just feels more responsive. I would say about 50% faster, on the average.
