Fuji X100 v Canon G1X - Assessment Test

Hi All,

May I please call upon your expert opinions for advice on the following.

I have recently sold my G1X in order to buy a Fuji X100.  This is because I became tired of composing shots at arms length with the GX1 due to its inadequate viewfinder.  Furthermore the Fuji appeals due to its design, ergonomics, fixed focal length / sensor and super optics.  Love it.

You would therefore expect the fuji to provide better images than the canon due to its superior optics and slightly larger sensor.

However when comparing Dpreview results in the camera comparision mode, Dpreview award higher image quality to the Canon raw/jpeg images but state that the Fuji optics are superior.

I am confused. Any comments please.

Thank you so much.

Kind regards.


Fujifilm FinePix X100 Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
