It has been a heck of a week with camera news. It feels like Christmas already.  Nikon introduced the Nikon D5300 and 58mm f/1.4, Sony with the full frame mirrorless A7 and A7r. And now Fujifilm fights back with the new Fujifilm X-E2. The Fujifilm X series mirrorless cameras are very well popular amongst hobbyists and professionals due to the brilliant X-trans sensor and beautiful body design.

The Fujifilm X-E2 is available in Black and Silver

The X-Pro 1 defines the top of the line mirrorless camera while the X-M1 which announced not long ago provides a much more affordable option. The new Fujifilm X-E2 sits between the X-PRO1 and X-M1 line ups. It continues the brilliance of its predecessor with the same quality body finish. The X-E2 gets a larger 3” LCD, as well as the popular Wifi connectivity. Pretty much the additional features that seen on the X-M1. It retains the very high resolution 2.36 million dot OLED electronic viewfinder which everyone loves.

The ergonomic design of the camera remains the same with the shutter speed dial and exposure compensation dial on the top. The aperture dial is still on the lens. There are some button layout adjustment with the X-E2; the AE-L and AF-L buttons are now near the thumb grip, the Q menu is now located on the top of the LCD.

The X-E2 claims to be a snappier camera with a start up time of 0.5s, shutter lag of 0.05s and the shooting interval time of 0.7s. It is capable of a whopping 7fps and DSLR AF speed AF speed of  just 0.08s which adopts both contrast and phase detection methods for acquiring focus.
