I have no information on an updated XE.
From a practical standpoint, other than an updated sensor and processor, what features would others like to see? For my part, a tilt screen (not necessarily touch) would be nice. If I had my druthers, what I would really, really, really like to see is Fuji's hybrid viewfinder incorporated in an XE-size body. Sort of an X-Pro Lite. Not likely, I'm sure.
