Fuji X100 vs. Leica X1 vs. Gf1 w/20mm pancake
Jan 16, 2011

Anyone else considering these three cameras?

Fuji X100 - $1200

Leica X1 - $2000

GF1 w/20mm pancake - 650

As we go from the GF1 to the X100 to the X1 we almost double in price. So what are your reasons for picking one over the other? Comparisons show that considering all things, the X1 produces only slightly better images than the GF1 w/20mm pancake. The higher ISO performance of the X1 is negated mostly by the fast 1.7 pancake. When shooting in raw the image quality difference are said to not become readily apparent till you print larger than 13x19.

Is it on image quality alone? And if it is how much better than the GF1 (or the GF3 that is rumored to be announced soon) does the IQ from the X100 have to be?
