Good call Jordan. I'll have to wait for a while. I'm still working off the 18 ZE...

p.10 #2 · p.10 #2 · Fuji X100s!


so in an effort to mitigate the damage to my wallet, i decided to pass on the x100s and buy the x20

i bought the x10 when it originally came out, but sold it due to the sensor issue and lack of information in the viewfinder. sounds like this new version will solve both these issues, so i expect it to be a nice little camera.

of course i'm probably just delaying the inevitable purchase of the x100s, but so be it

Sample images up in Fuji's site:

Talk about underwhelming...

Why can't they give the camera to some good photographers?

I think companies do give their cameras to good photographers, maybe it's the person or people that select the images to post on their website that suck

I just clicked on the sample images, a cat, really? Guess some think that a cat picture is mandatory so show case a new product

Pre-ordered my x100s on Amazon tonight. They are forecasting delivery 4th to 6th March. I'll believe that when the postman arrives....

Amazon.com already has 9 reviews for the X100S, but I don't think any of them are by people who own the camera. Why do people bother? Looking forward to some real reviews.

x100 didn't drop in price for a long time after release



Yes, but when the X100 was released, the mirrorless world was a totally different place.

Nobody produced anything that really resembled RF or old film SLR. APS-C mirrorless was more or less locked up by NEX-- with complaints about lenses, and modern styling/ergonomics.

Times have changed. And now the X100s will compete internally with the XE and XPro (both v1 and future variants), and RX1 (FF!), OMD (and future variants)....

Even the X-E1 has fallen pretty dramatically in price if you consider the bundling deals going on now with lenses.

My X100 impressions after first 100 frames:
I have had Fuji X100s for a week now, and have been using Fuji X100 as the only camera (switched from 5D Mark II+35 1.4+70-200 f4IS to X-Pro-1+35 1.4+VC15+Leica90 2). I am huge fan of X100.
X100s is a lot faster, it turns on faster, it processes faster, it formats faster etc etc. In low light, it focuses faster and is more accurate but in good light, it is not worth selling your mint X100 and adding $500 on top of it. The autofocus in not that brilliant, it fails with moving subject although it seems improved. Seems like Olympus has been setting autofocus standards for new cameras and Fuji still needs to catch up. If you are doing street, you will have to switch back to zone focusing or manual. Fuji is no DSLR in terms of focusing, yet I find it more appealing than DSLR.For people who are into manual focusing, X100s might be a worthy upgrade.

My biggest drawback with the X100s is the X-Trans sensor's raw file. As someone who spent about a year with Fuji X Pro 1, I have experienced my fair share of tricky situations with X Pro 1's raw file. With newer Lightroom versions and Fuji's increasing popularity, this should not be a problem for long. Fuji's proprietary software has horrible interface but you do get better results than Lightroom. Please note that I have not used Lightroom 5 yet. For my purposes 12 MP is more than enough. I will also save my hard drive space. I have heard many photographers say 16 is the sweet spot of CMOS (I don't know the reasoning).

For people thing about purchasing the Fuji X100s as an gateway to the X100 lineup, I would even challenge them to go for X100 and buy WCL adapter with savings.

I don't see what X100s can do which X100 cannot (apart from manual focusing), with a little bit of time and patience. Even focusing is possible with a lot of time . X100 was big, it made me switch from inter-changeble lens system with multiple lens to just one small camera. For me X100 is the best camera in the world. I have only had 100 pictures taken with X100s and it is still in mint condition will soon be going to a new home (hopefully this time gets better appreciated).

Some pics from X100s. while you are there give Neighborhood a Like for the good things we have been doing for 119 years. We are trying to get 1000 Facebook likes https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=220720288077805&set=a.220719781411189.1073741838.127114827438352&type=3&theater
