The Fujifilm X-E2 adds Wi-Fi and improves upon the X-E1's video capabilities, but it can't keep up with our Editors' Choice in focus or burst shooting speed.

In succeeding the Fujifilm X-E1 with a few performance tweaks, the new 16.3-megapixel Fujifilm X-E2 comes across like a Fujifilm X-A1 on steroids, minus that cheaper model's tilting touch screen.Instead we get a chunkier, slightly more robust...

We're fans of the X-series, even with the flaws noted here. Colors and white balance are very accurate, with a richness, tone, and depth that are quite impressive. Fujifilm wants a premium price for its better models and we can't begrudge the company...

The X-E2 produces good-quality images, but no better than cheaper rivals do. While the camera looks nice, it's rather difficult to use. Fujifilm continues its line of retro-nostalgic mirrorless cameras with the X-E2 ($1,350, with 18-55mm...

Improvements over the earlier X-E1 seem to be largely performance based, and come down to enhanced speed and accuracy – Fuji hasn't thrown the baby out with the bathwater. That said, if you're considering spending this amount then we'd also recommend...

The X-E2 is a highly capable enthusiast-focused camera capable of producing excellent images. Direct control dials and plenty of customization make for an engaging shooting experience, and its output is impressive. Wi-Fi and in-camera Raw conversion make...

The X-E2 doesn't succeed in every area, failing to match competing models in terms of AF speed and Wi-fi performance. However, if you're looking for a retro rangefinder-type CSC that delivers in terms of design and image quality, the X-E2 is a pleasure to use and one of the best on the market.

Mirrorless cameras are rapidly becoming the most popular form of photography today, and for good reason. They are positioned halfway between a compact and a DSLR, and not only do you find people stepping up to them from their point-and-shoots, but...

The Fujifilm X-E2 is very well equipped for the enthusiast photographer at whom it is targeted and, in many ways, its 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....

The Fujifilm X-E2 gets plenty right. Although, ultimately, it's a subtle upgrade compared to its predecessor. If you're after a CSC that's all about image quality then look little further. We also love the hands-on layout of the build, and...

The new X-Trans CMOS II sensor, onboard Wi-Fi and slightly reworked controls make the Fujifilm X-E2 a nice update of the X-E1, even though it doesn't bring any radical changes. It remains an expert's interchangeable lens compact that takes excellent...
