I tend to be content with what I've got but I also keep my eyes on what's new and when it offers something that would be useful/helpful to my shooting, sometimes I buy it. In the case of the XE1 / XE2, the XE1 will continue to be fine for how I use this camera, so I don't see any reason to upgrade. But if I was using the Fuji as my primary street camera, as I did for a while, I'd jump on the XE2, because the auto-ISO setup that allows a user selectable minimum shutter speed up to 1/500 is a game changer to me for street work. I had no idea how useful that could be until I started shooting with the Nikon A, which has the same feature (it goes up to 1/1000, but 1/500 is as fast as I need). And found it really liberating because it lets me put much less energy into monitoring and changing one of the key exposure tradeoffs while I'm shooting. I've enjoyed everything I've shot with, but I enjoy the gear I shoot with now considerably more than I would if I went back to what I was shooting with 3-4 years ago, so I like to stay on top of the new gear too... Maybe the XE3 will have something that will entice me to upgrade... If I was using this camera for action or street or with longer lenses, I'd probably upgrade to the XE2...I've learned to be content with the cameras I own. There will always be a next model and improvement. The secret is learning to use the camera you have and never wait for the next great thing. I'm a regular shopper at B&H and have been for many years. They send me advance notices which I'm sure you also received.
