Good choice used
First of all, this is a now-discontinued item. However, I wanted to try out the Fuji X mirrorless system before selling my upscale Nikon rig. I bought this x-E1 from a gentleman in Japan - where they treat their equipment gently and with respect, unlike their American counterparts who bang their cameras around so as to "look like a pro". So I paid less and got more.
The Fuji x-E1 is an excellent starter into the new world of mirrorless: it has the same processor and takes the same lenses as do all the Fujifilm X-models. Its controls aren't hard to use if you can first read and re-read the manual and then practice until you understand what you are doing. A supplemental book from Amazon devoted specifically to this model helps in this regard.
Only then might you upgrade.

A great carry around camera for half the price of a DSLR
I think its a great Digital rangefinder camera, the kit lens is remarkable, the picture quality is outstanding and the overall designs are perfect. I had an issue with SD card slot, where it was not coming out all the way, but that was the card's issue where the sticker on the card was coming loose, a quick fix. The other problem I had, was the battery, it said it was fully charged on the display screen, then within minutes it was blinking. I got another replacement battery and problem solved. I love the picture quality but it doesn't really do well on photographing still objects, it is great on portraits and does better than my expensive DSLR camera.

Impressive little wonder from Fuji
I needed a body to complement my X100 in the wide end and occasionally shoot with some longer lens, too. This camera fits the bill beautifully. The controls and and layout are similar, whole user interface is logical and pretty straightforward at least compared to some other modern digital bodies. So far been using XF 14mm and a Zuiko 24mm with this. The image quality with both is brilliant. Manual focusing with latter is well aided by the focus peak feature which you learn pretty quickly and works in most situations. It slows you down though, which isn't necessarily bad at all. Just some missed shots that you would have gotten with the X100. I shoot RAW but appreciate the high quality JPEGs - they actually save you quite a bit of time in the post. Low light capability of these Fuji's is stunning - Leica that I used to shoot is just a shadow of what this is capable of capturing. I'm still in the testing phase of this camera. So far EVF has been a pleasure except in some very bright situations. The eye cup is pretty small, which is good when you use glasses like I do, but lets some stray light in. Overall impressively capable, light and natural to use camera.Read full review

Awesome ergonomics and aesthetically beautiful and well built. Of course, and as always, the Fuji colors are the very best!
I was going to get the xe2 for the additional tilt screen and wifi transfer, but instead I opted for a second camera body - the Fuji m1 (which has the tilt screen and wifi). In total I paid $800 for both bodies and the xc 16-50mm lens!...brand new at that!

Old school with a modern twist
A well built camera with old school mixed with new school and what I mean by that is the dial for the shutter and aperture ring on some of the lenses that hark back to photography in the beginning. The digital technology shows how far we have come in photography. If you come from the film times then you will really appreciate this camera.
