The update of the entry-level model now includes:
– Touchscreen Operation & Focus Lever
– X-Trans™* CMOS III sensor & X-Processor Pro
– Wireless communication with Bluetooth
– 4K Video Recording
The D-pad is missing and the LCD monitor is a touchscreen. This new model is also slightly smaller and weighs 13g less than the X-E2s. The included battery is now the newer NP-W126S model.
