Review of my new FUJI X100 black- AMAZING
Dec 9, 2012

Hi, I just bought new fuji x100 black limited edition. I was thinking also about silver version but when I saw them side by side, silver looks a bit plastic. Black is a real camera porn. Silver is for old shooters which used to own classic cams like canonet or so IMO. But they both looks great. I found one for a price range of silver version so I bought it. It was a great decision. I used to own these cams in last year- 5D mark II, NEX 5,5N a NEX 7. From all of these cams the best one was 5D mark II for sure. full frame has amazing IQ but not so much better that X100. I bought canon 40mm f2,8 and I liked it. But I found out  that DSLR is nothing for me.. I was looking for a camera which is joy to use. next cams was NEX series - all of them was good. The best one was 5N. great IQ but so digital colors and harsh oversharp. images. NEX 7 was not so good. Its dynamic range was great but 24MPX is so much for APSC sensor........... so small body with SMALL GREAT LENS is way to go IMO. because if you buy mirrorless i dont see reason to buy for ex fuji x-e1 + set zoom. Why? its huge but x-e1 sensor is great. problem is theres no 35mm eq. on APSC .. small and fast lens with great bokeh.

So my x100 has great IQ, amazing lens, EVF and OVF. everything is perfect. theres some things I dont like because I dont think theres camera without some quirks if you understand. So MENU button is so small.. jog dial should be bigger, autofocus is very good and i dont know what everybody talks about - if they dont like AF of x100. my 5d mark ii + 40mm f2,8 was maybe slower. My only problem with focusing is that you always have to turn on macro mode when you shoot less than about 70 cm.

overall i am very hapy with my new camera. i think thats a keeper --- small, great iq, nice body, nice feel, joy to use, great viewfinder.. i dont know what else should camera could do. its really very nice cam.

am sorry for my english.  and theres so shoots i took yesterday- my second day with x100

X100 jpg is amazing. any of these pics wasnt post procceses.
