Fuji X-E2

The Fuji X-E2 steps up from its X-E1 predecessor by generally offering a faster and more capable set of features. The 16.3MP APS-C X-Trans II sensor has no color filter array thanks to the unique X-Trans pixel arrangement that limits moire. Additionally, the sensor features 100,000 phase detection pixels scattered across it.

The camera has a minimal shutter lag of 0.05 seconds and captures up to 7fps in continuous shooting mode. Taking a cue from the X100S, the X-E2 adds Digital Split Image and Focus Highlight Peaking for more accurate manual focus options. The X-E2 also bumps the available exposure compensation to +/-3 EV.

The X-E2 features a 2.36 million dot OLED viewfinder and a 3″ 1.04 million dot LCD. The camera shoots 1080/60p video at 36Mbps and allows the use of film simulation and exposure compensation during video capture.

I have the X-E1. Completely satisfied, but…can the X-E2 justify the change from the 1?

I would say no. I don’t think there’s enough to upgrade from the X-E1. It looks and feels like a great camera, but not enough to lure X-E1 users to upgrade.

When will Fuji have an FF sensor?
