Re: Some Firsthand Observations with RX-1 and X100S Side by Side...

Good review of important features and benefits.

If I was to buy one of these I would strongly incline towards the Fuji for a few reasons. But the biggest reason is that although I see the value in investing big bucks in great glass, I do not see the value in investing several grand on a camera since despite a great built-in lens the value camera itself depreciates rapidly. My Nikon 70-200 f/1.8 VR I lens, purchased in 2005, is worth close to what I paid for it despite the new and improved model. But the Nikon D70 I purchased in 2004 is worth about $150 now. So interchangable lens cameras are my preference. However, I do fully understand the appeal of the X100 and X100s system and the size, quality and convenience is good investment. I do not feel the same about the RX-1 unless I had deep pockets and loved new things but even then, the size of the fuji is preferred.
