After the success of the X-E1, which I ended up picking as my mirrorless camera of choice, Fuji decided to update the camera with more features to make it even more compelling. Considering that the X-E1 was only a little over a year old và the high-end X-Pro1 had not been updated since it was initially released back in March of 2012, the X-E2 was a good indication of Fuji’s future plans lớn keep the mid-range product line updated every 12 lớn 18 months, while the high-end line will probably be updated every 24+ months. In this Fuji X-E2 review, I will provide detailed information about the camera along with some image samples và compare it lớn the X-E1 and the Olympus OM-D E-M1.

When compared to the X-E1, the X-E2 received some new features và key upgrades lớn qualify for a new model number – from a robust hybrid autofocus system used on the Fuji X100S và a fast second generation imaging processor, to lớn Wi-Fi capabilities và a larger high-resolution LCD screen. While the shape and kích cỡ of the camera have remained the same, Fuji made some ergonomic tweaks to lớn the X-E2, allowing for easier use và better customization options.

Camera Construction, Handling & Controls

The X-E2 retains the same solid build as the X-E1, with the top và front magnesium-alloy covers. It is pretty tough for a mirrorless camera, similar to the Sony NEX-5 series cameras (which also feature front and top magnesium-alloy plates). What I love about the Fuji cameras, is the fact that the magnesium alloy shell is pretty thin, making them feel very light for their size. In fact, the X-E2 is not a small mirrorless camera when you compare it to the Sony NEX-6 / NEX-7 series & yet it is not heavier in comparison. That’s one of the things that I actually like about the Fuji X-E1 và X-E2 – they just feel right in my hands. Also, I vày prefer the more compact X-E1/X-E2 to the X-Pro1, since they are physically smaller và easier to handle.

When compared khổng lồ a full-size DSLR, the Fuji X-E2 is not only much smaller, but it is also much lighter in comparison, as demonstrated in my Fuji X-E1 review. So it would certainly make it a great camera for hiking & traveling light. I would still recommend replacing the thin strap that comes with the Fuji cameras to lớn something better và thicker though. The Fuji straps are very uncomfortable & they vày irritate bare skin quite a bit. Despite the fact that one side of the strap is a little smoother than the other, it is the thin form size of the strap & lack of any sort of padding that causes these issues. Personally, I am a huge tín đồ of neoprene straps from OP/TECH. The classic version of the strap would probably be ideal, although if you feel that it is too thick or too big for the X-E2, they have all kinds of smaller sizes too. Just make sure to lớn pick up a strap that is thin enough to lớn go through the “ears” on the sides of the camera.

Just lượt thích the X-E1, the X-E2 is not a weather-proof camera. That’s unfortunate, given the fact that some cameras like new OM-D E-M1 (which could literally be put underwater & then frozen & it will still continue to lớn function afterward) have excellent weather sealing features. Clearly, Fuji did not target people that would shoot in poor weather conditions with their cameras. The build unique is there, but not the weather sealing. Personally, I would prefer some weather sealing for my type of shooting, since I vày shoot in extreme conditions quite a bit.


However, it is not an absolute requirement for me, since I know that most cameras do fine with good care. Would I dip the X-E2 into a body of water? No, but I would not hesitate to shoot it in light rain or snow. In fact, as you can see from some of the sample images, I have used the X-E2 when the temperatures were way below freezing (10 °F) và the camera worked without any problems during the shoot và afterward. So it depends on what you are trying lớn do. I would certainly take good care of the camera when facing extreme humidity levels và would take precautionary steps not to cause too much condensation when shooting in the cold. In my case, I let the camera cool down before taking it out and gradually warmed it up later to avoid condensation build-up.

The X-E2 comes with a compact built-in flash. It is operated manually by pressing the small flash button on the back of the camera. Compared to DSLR built-in flashes, this one is tiny and not very powerful. Vì chưng not expect it lớn light up a room for you, as the flash is only meant lớn be used occasionally. It works great as fill flash, although you should be careful when using it with large lenses with attached hoods. At wide angles, you might see a huge shadow that occupies half of the frame. The good news is, you vị not have lớn rely on this built-in flash if you lượt thích working with flash – the standard hot shoe on the top of the camera will work with any speedlight or flash trigger system lượt thích PocketWizard. I have used the Fuji X series cameras with my Nikon speedlights and while TTL does not work, manual flash works great. See the Flash section of the Fuji X-E1 reviews for some more information và sample images.

The front of the X-E1 và X-E2 are exactly the same – the differences are on the top và the back of the cameras. The X-E2 gained an additional stop of exposure compensation on the dial going from +3 to lớn -3, which is nice (the X-E1 was limited to +2 to -2). The shutter speed dial has been slightly modified to move the spacing between “A” (aperture priority) và the shutter speeds, & a new 1/180 x-sync (maximum flash sync) has been added to the dial. This is great for photographers like me that rely on using speedlights & external flashes with the Fuji X system. Now I don’t need to lớn use 1/125 or 1/250 và adjust my way to lớn 1/180 using the back buttons, which saves time!

The back of the X-E2 went through a number of ergonomic changes, as can be seen below (Left: Fuji X-E1, Right: Fuji X-E2):

First, the “VIEW MODE” button has been moved lớn the camera thực đơn (now called “EVF/LCD SETTING”) & replaced with the Quick menu (Q). Certainly, a welcome change, since I rarely ever touched the VIEW MODE button on my X-E1. The default behavior for the view mode is “Eye Sensor”, which by mặc định shows everything on the LCD and switches khổng lồ the EVF when the sensor is activated. The Quick thực đơn is a nice way khổng lồ quickly make changes khổng lồ the camera settings like ISO & White Balance, however, I really wish Fuji allowed customizing this screen.


Personally, I don’t care for things lượt thích Dynamic Range, Noise Reduction & Image Size, but I would love to lớn keep such settings as ISO, Autofocus Mode and Flash on the vị trí cao nhất of the thực đơn for faster access. In addition, the whole Q thực đơn is implemented poorly in my opinion. A person that does not understand how to operate Fuji cameras would have no idea that they have to move the rear dial to make changes. Naturally, one would scroll to lớn each thực đơn item & press “OK” in the middle to select/change option, which in the current implementation leaves the Quick thực đơn screen. A much better approach would have been to lớn allow one to press the OK button, which selects the thực đơn item, then allow pressing the left and right buttons khổng lồ change settings.

The AE-L và AF-L buttons have been separated into two separate buttons for independent control. Now you can hold the AF-L button khổng lồ lock focus while taking pictures, while the AE-L button will allow you to lock the exposure separately. Và if you want khổng lồ go back and be able to lock both, you can still vì it, but you will have to change the “AF-LOCK MODE” thực đơn setting first.

The bottom navigation button now has an “AF” label, because the “AF” button to lớn the left of the LCD has been replaced by a Fn2 (Function 2) button. Now, this part is where I get ticked off by Fuji’s implementation of the Focus Area selection. On any camera with good ergonomics, the mặc định behavior of the navigation buttons in shooting mode is khổng lồ select a focus point. For some strange reason, Fuji decided to dedicate the đứng đầu button for “Macro” (which almost never gets used), deactivate the side buttons completely & use the bottom button for selecting the focus point. What Fuji should have done instead, is eliminate the Macro button (put it in camera menu) và allow the four navigation buttons lớn move focus points. This would save a lot of time and frustration for many photographers including myself since there is no need khổng lồ press a button just lớn move the focus point! I have been waiting for this change for a while & I cannot wait when Fuji finally addresses it.

On a positive note, the X-E2 got a lot of customization options compared lớn the X-E1. First, the Fn2 button that I mentioned above can be programmed lớn perform many different menu functions. In addition, both the AF và the AE buttons can also be customized, making it a total of 4 configurable buttons (the X-E1 only had two programmable buttons).

Unfortunately, my biggest handling complaint on the X-E1 has not been fixed on the X-E2 – the tripod mount is still located right next khổng lồ the battery chamber. So removing a memory card is still painful when using a tripod plate. It would be great if Fuji could move the thẻ slot lớn the side of the camera, or move the tripod socket away from the battery compartment.

Overall, I love the way Fuji implemented controls on the X-E2. The large dial on the top is for setting the shutter speed of the camera, with an option khổng lồ switch to tự động hóa mode (red “A”). While the dial shows shutter speed increments in full stops, bởi vì not worry – you can still go in smaller 1/3 stop steps simply by pressing the Left và Right buttons on the back of the camera. So you could just mix 1/250 & move the shutter speed down to lớn 1/200, or mix the dial to 1/125 and move it up to lớn 1/200. If you have used a DSLR before & never touched a rangefinder, you might find yourself looking for a way to switch the camera mode from Auto/Program to lớn Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority or Manual. Unlike a modern DSLR, there is no camera mode switch.

To change the camera lớn Shutter Priority, you simply rotate the large đứng đầu dial khổng lồ the desired shutter speed, while moving the lens aperture ring to the red “A” (Auto). To change the camera lớn Aperture Priority, you leave the top shutter dial at “A”, while rotating the aperture ring lớn an aperture of your choice. Lớn change the camera lớn Manual Mode, you pick whatever aperture you want on the lens & pick whatever shutter speed you want on the camera. Lastly, Program mode can be set by setting both the top dial on the camera and the dial on the lens lớn “A”. Super simple và very intuitive in my opinion.


Operating the camera và navigating the thực đơn system is a breeze. Although RAW shooting at boosted ISO levels (100, 12,800 và 25,600) is still not there, Fuji fixed the tự động hóa ISO feature khổng lồ allow setting the minimum shutter speed. It also moved the cap lớn ISO 6400, which is nice. What I would lượt thích to see going forward, is an automated way to control the minimum shutter speed, depending on the focal length of the lens. Nikon has implemented this feature on all of its current DSLRs và it works great! This way, I vì chưng not have khổng lồ change the minimum shutter tốc độ every time I change a lens or change focal length on a zoom lens.

A huge annoyance that Fuji has fixed on the X-E2 is the ability lớn delete images when zoomed in during playback. This one drove me nuts on the X-E1, so I am very glad that Fuji has finally taken care of it.

Lens Modulation Optimizer

An interesting feature that has been added lớn the X-E2 is the Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO). In short, LMO applies software tweaks khổng lồ images khổng lồ reduce the effect of diffraction và other optical aberrations, resulting in sharper images. I did a quick kiểm tra at f/8 & at f/16 in JPEG format using the Fuji 23mm f/1.4 lens & the differences are pretty clear at 100% view, as demonstrated here. However, this feature is not something that I personally care about, because it only applies to JPEG images. Since I shoot RAW, the Lens Modulation Optimizer setting does not matter, similar khổng lồ Dynamic Range, Noise Reduction & other image-enhancing features found on the camera.

LCD Screen

A notable upgrade over the X-E1 is the new gorgeous 3″ màn hình lcd with 1.2 million dots, the same one found on the X-Pro1. While the screen kích cỡ and resolution are not very important to lớn me, it is still something nice to have when looking at images. When navigating the thực đơn system, the fonts appear smoother on the X-E2 when compared to lớn the X-E1, thanks khổng lồ a lot more pixels. To lớn be honest, I find the smaller và lower-resolution screen on the X-E1 to lớn be sufficient for my needs, so this one is only a “nice khổng lồ have” for me.

EVF Diopter

Just lượt thích the X-E1, the X-E2 also comes with a very important feature for those of us that bởi vì not have perfect vision – there is a diopter adjustment to lớn the left of the viewfinder. The X-Pro1 comes with a removable cover that you can remove and replace, but that costs extra và is not convenient if multiple people use the camera. From that standpoint, I really like the X-E1 / X-E2, because you can adjust the diopter khổng lồ your needs và change it lớn a different setting if you are wearing glasses or hand the camera to lớn someone else.
