DanK7: The matrix of specs (I did side-by-side with X100) shows X100T Exposure Compensation as ±2 (at 1/3 EV steps). Is that a typo? I thought the X100T is ±3 (at 1/3 EV steps). Do I win a new X100T now?
DPR, you might need to look at this....
Craig Atkinson: does the ND filter have an 'auto' setting or is it manual only?
What the description above says about the VF switch is that " the small lever on the front of the camera that switched to the electronic viewfinder in previous models can now also be nudged to the left to engage the in-viewfinder tab. " Doesn't say anything about ND filter control, but you can choose to assign one of the function buttons to be your ND filter switch.
I expect that it's the same as the X100, i.e. on or off as a menu choice.

Overall, one of the most well-written DPR pieces. Well done. More like this, please.
I would have thought an updated X-S1 would have made more sense than the FinePix S1. And why confusingly name it the S1? Too bad the X-S1 was discontinued. Add wifi and weather sealing and you (almost) have an X-S2. Some elements of the S1 seem a step backward, but I suppose the X-S1 didn't sell well enough, despite being great for what it was. Expensive initially, but not any more. And there were those who questioned it being branded an X camera in the first place. The EXR processor is still pretty impressive, even today. (It looks like I wrote a similar comment 8 months ago, haha. Consistent at least...)
...and maybe the 15 people who have clicked "I had it" can tell us why they got rid of theirs...(something's kinda funny)
The past tense of a "re-think" has got to be "re-thunked".
Dan's Principle number 27: Reading cynical comments makes you cynical.
I think I should stop. ;-)
DanK7: The S-X1, with it's slightly larger 2/3" sensor is a better camera although not weather sealed. It's a nice option as a travel camera instead of taking a DSLR with a load of lenses. I would have thought Fuji would seal and upgrade that model before introducing the Finepix S-1.
Meant to say its vice it's - too slow to edit...

Without doubt the audience for these polls is a select group of interested, engaged and (mostly) well-informed readers, so it's no surprise that Fuji and Pentax do well against Canon, Nikon and Sony. If it were based on sales numbers and general opinion, the outcomes would likely be very different. Interesting despite the survey's limitation.
Can I really be the first comment? Need to read the article now... It's evident that putting these "comparos" together leads to some "apples and oranges" criticism, but at least it makes me look at the options from a different perspective. Thanks, DPR.
Thank you, Fujifilm! Major kudos for doing this.
I would have thought that "no eye level viewfinder" would have been listed in the "cons." This must be an oversight on the part of the reviewer, since "no electronic level" is listed.
This article is not displaying the column headings above the spec matrix, which makes it hard to tell what cameras are being compared.
There is a word missing in the section about the viewfinder. "While this idea has been extremely-received in the X100 and X-Pro1...".
Thanks for the article.
