My perspective

Hi there

I like taking it the X100 with me when I am too lazy to carry or cannot take my 5Dii. I have always found it pretty straightforward to use, and I don't understand all the fuss about menus or other grandiose and poetic statements.

The one quirk with the camera is the autofocus. It sucks. It is slow and inaccurate. I don't know how Fuji managed, but it is probably the worse autofocus I have ever experienced in a camera, point and shoot or otherwise.

However, the picture quality is stunning. I love the lense, I love the way it renders colours, and I love the fact that I can use it indoors or in low light without using the flash. I also love the OVF, although because the autofocus works better with the EVF, I always end up going back to the EVF...

So, if you live with the crap autofocus, you will love this camera.
