The arrival of the X-E2S into Fujifilm’s X-series has been somewhat overshadowed of late by the release of the manufacturer’s X-Pro2. Having extensively tested Fujifilm’s flagship model, it’s time to shift our focus in the direction of the Fujifilm X-E2S – a camera that much like the discontinued X-E2 seems well equipped for enthusiasts who’d like a retro-style rangefinder design. The ‘S’ in its name signals we’re looking at a modest update rather than a radial overhaul of the X-E2. Nevertheless there appears to be sufficient differences to warrant a closer inspection.
