if i were to buy...

...a nice used 18-55 fuji zoom...i could mate my 2 xe1 bodies to the two zooms i would have (55-200 + 18-55) for a very nice zoom kit...and then use my 2 xe2 bodies with my prime lenses...
something to mull over for a bit...

I can't speak from experience with Fuji digital, but I like your idea.

I'm still shooting film in 6x6/120 and 35mm/135 with manual-focus primes, but I've been watching these Fuji cameras for awhile. I could see myself branching into digital with a Fuji body and the 18-55 zoom, as my favorite focal lengths in 135 are 85mm and 28mm. From there, I would probably want to add primes.

More power to you! It sounds like a great setup.

I have a reply in the form of a question for XE users. I've been using 2 XT1 bodies for work and just added an XE2s body as backup and portable set-up w/27mm. The on/off switch is easily turned on by accident. Very little resistance, at least compared to the XT1 which clicks firmly on or off. Is it just the XE2s body I have or are they all this way? Can the on/switch be tightened-up, I wonder?

The On/Off switch on all my Fuji cameras (XE2, XE2S, XP1 and X100S) operate the same. They're all pretty easy to turn on by accident.

And, back alley, I like the idea of a body dedicated to a lens. It takes up more space in the bag--and it's more expensive--but it's convenient.

I've been thinking of the 18-55mm zoom lately as well. They are about $300 used. I think it might be my next lens.

I don't own the 18-55 XF zoom, but everything I've read about it from others is positive.

Here's just one review.

How big of a bag would you need for four cameras with various lenses attached?

i have the bodies and the bags so the only new expense is the zoom itself.
