Not really, the arrival capacity at the existing terminal has always been designed to handle the extra demand in the future huge "X" satelite terminal. This new terminal 2 only has check-in desk actually make perfect sense.

Only 2 airlines in T2 so far, so it's very quiet. Don't think Oasis had their check-in counters open when I was there, but at least there were some people in the restaurants.

I found a video that shows the transport from Terminal 2 to Terminal 1. Nothing much to see, though.

I was there last week, if you don't have to check in at the airport, I would advise you to get off the Airport Express to the new T2 side.
Less crowded, nicer shops, absolutely no one at the immigration, after that there is an automated train connecting to T1 stopping at 2 stations.
