When I first got the X-Pro last year before there was ANY raw support, let alone decent raw support, I was amazed at the latitude the X-trans jpegs had. Still am. The RX100 jpegs have a similar quality - I didn't end up liking the RX100 enough to keep it, but there was so,e serious magic in those files. So I wouldn't have expected anything less of the X100s.

+1 for X-trans jpegs. I find that raw files have more hilight recovery latitiude (using LR4.4) but the jpegs surprise me with WB, color, and shadow adjustment latitude.

A bit peripheral to where the thread began (really appreciated the images of the wedding shoot, Brian):  I have a nex 5 but am disappointed with high ISO when printing 8 x11, as too much noise and grain at 3,200.  Hence, i am quite intrigued by the x100s.  Would I see a noticeable improvement at that ISO?

Thanks.

I can't compare to a Nex 5, since I've never used one, but these files should help you make the comparison.

Both shot with the X100S at ISO 3200.

please regard, that Fuji Inflates iso about 2/3 of a stop.

Still very impressive.

I used to have a nex 5 prior to the X100.

Compared the X100 is a lot better at noise and a lot more film-like.

Another important thing is that the noise Fuji produces looks more grainy and less digital than from most cameras.

Thus I can live with the grain (if there is any at all w the X100s wich I want to buy now)

But the nex 5 has a nice LCD!

On the arm and the sweatshirt and in the shadows on the face the tones/colors look pretty bad. This is nothing I would generally like to have. Or in other words: when using jpg (with the X100s) better get your exposure right.

I am pretty impressed by the ooc jpgs the X-Trans sensor can produce even up to ISO 12800 but I would rather avoid to push them. Fortunately we have RAW for those kind of application.
