X100: Silver Award
May 17, 2011

From the DPReview conclusion:

"The X100 is without doubt one of the most idiosyncratic cameras we've ever come across. It veers wildly between being delightful to use and deeply frustrating"

Some people actually like this. Then they can say their camera has "character" .

X100: Excellent IQ, which we already knew, but performance and handling leaves a lot to be desired. In serious need of a firmware update. I'm willing to put up with quirks in exchange for great IQ in a secondary camera, but not my primary one. Maybe, for most, this would be a secondary cam anyway.

Some have complained about Olympus interface, or Panny touchscreen. Obviously interface design is not a piece of cake. This is the first review I've seen with an appendix page of bugs and glitches! For $1200? I'll pass!
