Papi61: You do realize that with only $200 more you can buy a Samsung NX1, right? I know, I know: apples and oranges, but still an extra $200 buy you the best APS-C camera on the market and the best 4K shooter under $3K. As opposed to retro chic with technology comparable to that of a 2010 camera?
Talk about overpriced...
Oh, and if you like the smaller, rangefinder-like form factor, the NX500 totally steals this camera's lunch for considerably less. Lens included.
The A6000 has a built-in EVF and some of the fastest AF rates outside of the Nikon 1.
captura: This may truly be the best second-rate camera on the market!
The best first-rate camera and the best-buy combination may be a few remaining Coolpix 'A's which are for sale at CAN $299 at a Canadian camera outlet. DX sensor, no AA filter.
KonstantinosK: B&H lists this for $499 and the X-A2 for $549.95 with lens... X30 overpriced and overhyped me thinks.
Why bring the NEX-7 into this? It's been discontinued for 3 years, and that's only leftover stock. It held it's price quite well for an old camera, don't you think?
This may truly be the best second-rate camera on the market!
tedolf: I don't understand this camera. It is larger and heavier than an E-pl7 with the Panny 20mm f/1.7 lens. The sensor isn't as good and it doesn't cost much less.
What is the point?
tedolf/ TEdoph/ Tedolpf,Why not just get a nice post-orb X10?Then you will get more dynamic range, better JPEGS and video, too.
The NX500 has turned out be a lemon, sadly.
RStyga: It's a very nice camera and all but the RAW output is still fuzzy with pixel-level artifacts due to the X-Trans structure. Fujifilm needs to resolve the RAW conversion otherwise X-Trans will become synonymous to low high-ISO noise at the expense of "double"-AA-filter style IQ. At a time where manufacturers remove the AA filter to achieve a crisper image, Fujifilm advertises a sensor with no need for an AA filter but -in essence- with an even more blurry IQ than traditional Bayer sensor that have an AA filter. No moire is great but I'm not sure why one would prefer an X-Trans camera since applying PP on a Bayer sensor can remove moire completely and obtain the same "blurry" image that an X-Trans camera produces.
The Ricoh GR and Coolpix 'A' soldier on with Bayer 16mp sensors and no AA filter. Better results here, compared to the X100T.
bumblebeezack: It's great that DPR took the time to write a review for the X100T, although I felt that somehow, the reviewer isn't exactly sure what to make of the camera. It was mentioned that the camera is great tool for documenting life and in a way that's true with it's relatively fast lens and large sensor in a small form factor. So much so that many felt this was a great camera for "street". However I feel that the camera is so much more. I had it for a few months and used it for almost any kind of shooting, I can.

It's by no means the best example, of course, but seriously, I have a D810 that I use mainly for work as comparison and this camera blows me away quality-wise if one takes a more deliberate approach to taking a photo.
Don't miss an opportunity to own a great "point and shoot". Try the camera first, if you can. It's pretty amazing and can be so much more, I'm sure, in worthier hands then mine!
Of the genre, I prefer my X10 which produces superior JPEGS and decent videos. Mostly because it was inexpensive. And it also because it has that Fuji 'rangefinder look.'
Craig Atkinson: I like the x100T because it's reduced the x100S to £400, and with the GR at under £400 both can be had for less than the T.
And there's a store here in Toronto selling the competitive Nikon Coolpix 'A' for only $ CAN 299.
BobbySan: I love my S, the T 'upgrade' seems a bit strange to me in terms of progress - too little too soon.Sad to hear that Fuji may stop firmware upgrades for my S now though.
However the X100 series has made me love photography again - I use mine rangefinder style and to the annoyance of my friends and fellow Leica users I prefer it to my old M cameras
At least Fuji offers updates. Sony prefers to force you to get a new model every year or two, rather than update your camera. And oh, Sony also like to sell you apps. which should have been included in the price of the camera. Good for Fuji !
chillgreg: I have ZERO regrets choosing the incredible Ricoh GR over the Fuji. Half the price, and in many ways the better camera!
What's a "bloody wombat?" Something from down unda, mebbe?LOL.
The 'A' may be the best choice, for the money.
mgatov: How is this better than the older Sony RX-1?
I believe the Fuji X100T is not a 35mm equivalent camera; it has an APS-C sensor.
"Movie capture has poor resolution and spectacular moire" - for movie mode, the X10, with no X-trans sensor, may still be the best of the Fuji fixed-lens series.
captura: Maybe the X100S and T should compared to their APS-C rivals, the Ricoh GR and the Nikon Coolpix 'A.'
We were having a side-discussion of Ricoh GR vs Coolpix 'A,' Richard. Sorry we hijacked the thread.
Coolpix 'A' JPEGS being better than the Ricoh GR's. I thought that was implied.
And the Coolpix 'A' jpegs are better still.
I like to shoot JPEGS with compact cameras, so the GR would be useless for me.
I have the Coolpix 'A.' Better metal build quality, equal image quality to GR but with slight vignetting wide open, and excellent JPEG performance (which the GR doesn't have.)Fewer features than GR.
Maybe the X100S and T should compared to their APS-C rivals, the Ricoh GR and the Nikon Coolpix 'A.'
