    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!

    The XT-1 is a very handsome camera. Pretty good viewfinder system. I bet you will enjoy it.

    I think FUJI colors and the way FUJI present sharpness/detail are unbeatable for food photography. And I mean including FF cameras as we'll.

    Thanks all! I am very excited. I based my decision mostly on image quality.

    One thing that put me off the Fuji is that you can only shoot raw between iso200 and 6400 if you want to go lower or higher it only shoots jpg

    I guess they reserve it for XPro 2 that is going to their flagship body.

    Enjoy it also maybe I'm wrong but I do believe the XE2 has the exact same sensor as your Xt1 ?

    Sure but the X-T1 has a flip-out LCD and better VF--the info strip flip between portrait and landscape orientation is killer. Can also use the new UHS-II cards. The handling differences between the two cameras aren't subtle, either.
