Which lenses are you using on your X-E1?
When you speak of +3, are you refering to extension tubes?
Have you considered upgrading your X-E1 to a new X-E3, the X-T20/X-T2, or
even this new X-A5?
The new generation of X-series cameras are leaps, and bounds ahead the first
generation such as your X-E1. I currently find myself owning an X-E2, an
X-T2, and an X-E3, along with four Fujinon primes, and two zooms.
