What does everyone think and feel about the X100F?

I wanted to put it up against my RX1 for it's feature set, evf and usability. Perhaps I had a poor lens sample on the X100f, but I found the difference in image quality was more significant than I had anticipated, even when shooting @ iso 200 with the subject 20 feet away. I really wanted it to work out, and may even try another sample of it. Thank goodness for return policy.

Ergonomically it felt very similar to my XE2 with one very noticeable exception; I found setting the aperture exceedingly awkward, in that one must find the tabs on the aperture ring to change the aperture - I guess I'm use to just feeling for the knurled indentations of all my Fuji lenses and the RX1.

Things I liked about the the X100F over the RX1 include: Auto focus speed, viewfinder, film sims, and man is that silver body gorgeous! But depending on your priorities for a used price of about $900 US the RX1 is pretty hard to beat if image quality, build and reasonable user experience is on the list.

Here's a link to some informal images I posted on another site comparing the two:

http://www.fujix-forum.com/threads/x100f-shipment-update.66533/page-11

I took the RX1 on the Camino de Santiago in Spain last year and will likely take it again this year to Spain on a different route, it is one solid travel camera.


Cheers

I owned the x100 s/t. Loved both of them ... Finally sold my 100t to concentrate on building and using just my X T2. It was then I realized my mistake - I subsequently sold the X T2 and went back to the x100 F. The camera produces wonderful images .. extremely feature rich and allows you to enjoy your environment while capturing moments with precision and simplicity. Never a thought about lenses etc. is great when you want to concentrate on experiences and documentation simultaneously. Some of the most creative and ecclectic photos I've seen are from these cameras.

I did the same. First bought an XT-2 with 3 lenses, used it for one trip and sold it when I returned. Previously owned an X100S which I should have kept. Now have the X100F and I'm very pleased with the camera and image quality. Excellent for travel.

Thanks Gary. My wife's father lives close by in Pontevedra. I had a look at your images and really I don't see any issues as we are only looking at website viewing.

I have had the RX1 when it first arrived and then the RX1r. My problem at the time that the RX1 SD card slot jammed after 6 months while I was in Taiwan on business so no spare camera at the time. I do thank camera bodies now that do have 2 slots. The RX1 was still under warranty but it took Sony 8 weeks to even respond in Australia and after I threatened legal action on FB. At the time Sony service was abysmal, but it has improved. Still there is only one service center and no other service center can service Sony.

Sony did replace the RX1 after 12 weeks, and I opted then for the RX1r. The IQ with the RX1 and RX1r are wonderful, superb 35mm lens but still the ergonomics and AF speed/accuracy is now somewhat dated with all the options available. My preference would be the RX1rII now but it is priced at 5200 AUD in Australia which is crazy for now. In this line of thinking I would opt for the Leica Q used for about 3800 AUD.

If I need FF I opt for the D750/D810, and for travelling I use the D750 with a small lens like the 50/1.8, used pricing about 1500 AUD for the package.

If I do opt for Sony again, I would choose a used A7rII with a "pancake like" lens for light to go travelling.

Based on what I hear from friends and read on the Internet, both Sony and Leica have poor repairs related customer service. Very ironic considering the price premium they charge on their "high-end" models. Bug fixes, firmware updates are also relatively rare if at all. A7 series may be an exception since Canikons compete here.

To be fair, Sony has improved servicing in Australia alot, but there is still only one service centre. Having had Leica for about 5 years, generally were very good, albeit slow. Often they would provide a loan body or lens.

That said Nikon and Canon have multitude of service centres so you have many options.

This is the kind of shot that makes me wanting to know more. The look on the boys faces of suspicion and mistrust and the proud and protective mother.

Nice one!

Thanks Leighton!

My wife and I were at Eastern Market. I spotted this family and was trying to position myself for a shot, when my wife stepped into the frame unexpectedly. The smaller boy appears to have been looking at her and the older one at me.

Might have been their first trip into Detroit. They certainly did look apprehensive.

Bought an X100F recently after lugging around Canon pro DSLRs for many years, both professionally and for fun. I'm smitten! What a joy to use. I'm seriously contemplating getting rid of one of my Canons and a bunch of primes and get an X-Pro2 or X-T2 and a few primes instead. I think I'll postpone that decision for 6 months and in the meantime enjoy the X100F almost exclusively.

This morning I received my X100F. I absolutely love the size/weight and ergonomics of the X100F. The 23mm lens is great lens. It has many personalities and reminds me of my M 35 Cron Pre Asph.

First shot with the X100F in the office. The AF was wide with Face and Eye AF.

Charles: Congratulations! Nice captures! Did you get black or silver? Waiting to hear more about your impressions as you use it more. Thanks! I must say, I am semi-tempted to get it but I am not a street-shooter, so may not see real use, just some GAS.

Thank you very much I did get the black as more for the stealth of not being noticed. I must admit the the form factor is very conducive to just taking the X100F for a walk Kudos to Fuji as it is a very well thought out camera. I am also loving the XT2 with XF 18 and 27 lenses. Having my FF D750 and D810 made me rethink my Fuji system as truly a light to go and have fun system. There is a place for both

Another quick observation as I originally saw in the XPro2 was that using the hybrid viewing slowed down the AF marginally. Reverting to just EVF the AF is back to normal. The X100F is the same.

Charles, I see a lot of similarities in our choices of gear - I have held onto my D3s/D700 and Nikon glass for fast paced action because my X-T1 always seems to be a step behind. For travel and social gatherings, the X-T1 with XF18 is just about perfect, but I have been eyeing the X100F as an even smaller package. What are your impressions on the X100F vs the X-T2 and D750? Can the AF keep up, and do you feel the X100F is somewhat redundant when you already have the X-T2?

X100F. Processed in Capture One Pro since I am now trying to get back to using it more.

Edit: maybe to much sharpening?

Hi Chris. I love FF and now in particular D810/D750 combo with the newer lenses like the 105/1.4G and 70-200 f2.8 FL. There is the new 28/1.4 G that is about to arrive. With used Nikon bodies and lenses the entry is acceptable. Maybe in another 12 months Sony's pricing levels may rationalize also.

I have two XT2 and they are superb. Combined with the XF 18 and 27 they make for an awesome combination for a light to go setup. When Fuji releases the newer version of the XF 18/2, this may change the landscape again. My understanding the XT2 is a very substantial step from the XT1 in terms of AF speed and ultimately IQ. The IQ from the 24MP Xtrans sensor seems to be improving now with the latest updates from Lr CC/PS. I think Adobe is quietly improving the algorithms.

The X100F fits wonderfully as the camera you take with you when would not normally. This is really what photography is all about It has the same AF speed as the XPro 2, same IQ and is a fun camera.

The XT2 is more sophisticated and marginally faster in AF than the XPro 2 and X100F. The difference is not noticeable for normal shots. For fun to go shots, the X100F fits in your pocket where the XT2 and XF 18 or 27 does not.

As I mentioned before I was at dinner with my wife, I had my D750 and 58G, nice light and small setup. In the end I took most of my shots casually with my Samsung S8 Plus as it has a 27mm eff FL and very unobtrusive. This is where the X100F and the XT2 with the XF 18 would shine.

Hi Joakim. I don't feel your images are over sharpened. It is always hard to find the exact point where sharpening is best and it is a very personal choice. I would first try shots that wish to extract the max details with IXT. I feel this now gives the best results as you now a lot of control. For portraits and streets I prefer just Lr CC/PS with the latest updates.
