Fuji X100 or Canon G 1X
May 30, 2012
I currently have a Fuji S5 with a Nikon 24-70 lens that produces excellent shots but it is a very bulky and heavy camera. I'm going to sell the 24-70 and get myself a Nikon 50mm 1.4 as I mainly use the S5 for portraits and with the remaining money I'm looking at a more portable solution. I've narrowed it down to the Fuji x100 or the Canon GX1 as they seem to offer excellent image quality in low light situations that can rival an SLR setup. The DPreviews of these cameras are also very similar. I don't want the faff of changing lens and hence have excluded the X1 Pro and offerings from other manufacturers. The other requirement is that my wife needs to be able to use the camera too occasionally.
What are peoples views on this? Which would you choose and why?
