Fujifilm X-E2 review – Our verdict
The Fujifilm X-E2 is very well equipped for the enthusiast photographer at whom it is targeted and, in many ways, it’s the camera we wish the X-E1 had been. Fujifilm has addressed the concerns many had with the earlier model, like the ageing 2.8in. 460,000-dot screen and the autofocus accuracy in low light. Although the newly developed AF algorithm has improved things, it hasn’t dramatically changed the lock-on speed, which remains slower than its Olympus and Panasonic CSC rivals.
Once familiar with the ins and outs of the X-E2’s operation, the solid build quality, superb handling and excellent button placement add up to offer one of the best user experiences there is. Most importantly, there’s no compromise in image quality, with the standard of results and detail rendered making it an excellent substitute for a more unwieldy APS-C-format DSLR. The X-E2 is, to put it simply, a stunning camera that’s up there as one of the most attractive on the market and is an absolute pleasure to use.
