DPR's X100S comments in Sony RX-1 review
Feb 21, 2013

These sort of comments make me wonder....  From the conclusion in the Sony RX-1 review, "The RX1 has no direct competition. The closest comes in the form of Fujifilm's X100S, which can't offer full frame image quality but is half the price and has a hybrid viewfinder, fast focus and digital split image focus system in its favor. However, if image quality is paramount for you, there's nothing that comes close in such a small package this side of a Leica and its small-car price tag....."

Firstly, are IQ results available for the X100S?  I think we can assume that the RAW should be at least as good as the existing X-trans, but the JPEGs are purported to be better than the existing.  Being that the existing X-trans APS-C sensor is close to FF IQ in RAW or JPEG right now, what gives?  In addition, even with an hybrid OVF, the X100S is approximately the size of the RX-1.  With the optional VF, the Sony is hardly small anymore.

Perhaps Fuji should yank the HVF from the X100s, slow it down and charge more money.  Then it can be more competitive.
