Lucas, how are you finding the xe2 firmware update that happened recently? Also does the xe2 fit in your pocket (or would it with a pancake lens)? I found the x100t to be too big to be pocketable so I'm still on the hunt for a high IQ pocket camera to compliment my Sony. I like the look of the x70 but there are some negative reports appearing about the AF.
Sorry for fuji'ing up the Sony thread
The new firmware is incredible. Seriously made it feel like a different camera. Everything is faster, it added new functions, added custom button mapping and best of all it added a silent shutter option.
As for pocketable; it really depends on your definition. The size comparisons I've seen show it's about the same size as an X100 with the 27mm attached, which is the reason I chose to buy an X-E2 over a X100S. I can fit it rather easily into a hoody or jacket pocket with the 27mm pancake on it, but it definitely wouldn't fit in a pants pocket. I put a leather wrist strap on it when I bought it and haven't felt the need for a shoulder strap since. I bought the Fuji with the intention of using it for those times where I felt the a7S would just be that extra bit too cumbersome or where I felt the camera might be in a slight danger (leaving it in my car, on a table at a party, etc.), but now I'm finding that I use it more than the a7S.
