Isn't this just a myth , the old model is still the best ? It helps to comfort those who bought early & helps to clear out old stocks ? I don't have any Fuji X yet so all this is speculation from an outsider....

It's not a myth, there's certainly something to it. As to the extent, it's hard to say. It varies from person to person.
Just like anything- to some it's a big deal, others not so much.
I think once adobe and other PP/raw programs get an angle on the x-trans sensor and figure out how best to extract the info from it, it'll probably smoke the older x100 sensor. But right now it's somewhat uncharted waters.

The photos from all the fuji cameras look damn good- we're really just splitting hairs. Both the x100 cameras will produce great photos and neither would be a bad purchase.

but I used both x100 and xpro and without exception the xpro images are better. More dynamic coverage, more accurate colours, les autoexposure clipping. I took close to 10k on x100 so this wasn't just a weekend engagement. I love x100 but its image is not a magical in comparison to xpro nor better than latest fujis, just the body is cuter.

If the x100s delivers image at xpro level, I would be happy camper.
