why X100 is fixed lens
Sep 28, 2010

I took a quick look at the brochure for the camera (on Luminous Landsacape website). It shows how the microlenses on the sensor have been offset from the pixel grid at the edges of the sensor to correct for the angle of incidence to reduce shading. A nice touch. But I would guess that this is a function of the focal length of the lens and optimizing the sensor like this means it works best over a certain range of lens focal lengths rather than a wide range.
