How does its auto-focus performance compare to that of the X-E1?

Man, Fuji is rocking it. I really hope they add manual exposure to video mode though. I loved the X100s but it was frustrating not being able to set my shutter speed or aperture in video. That sensor is amazing though so this will be an awesome camera most likely
