Well, I have decided to get the Fujifilm XT-1 for my food photography. I based this decision on its specs, on reviews, on sample photos, and from people I know who are good photographers, and rave about it. I chose the XT-1 over the XE-2 because of the weather sealing. I will be leaving mainland China to go to Hong Kong soon, and I will buy it there, since it is cheaper. Thanks to all for your recommendations and advice. I will post some photos as soon as I get it!
