Fuji is more respectful of the photographer.

So not to cheapen the Nex because it is good, I would sum up as Fuji is more the photographer's camera and Nex more the casual upgrader from a point and shoot type of camera. It has that distinct feel to it. Sony Nex is a bit too automatic to be totally engaging even though you can set everything manually once you get used to the extremely poorly thought out menu system.


This is a good summation.  As a long time Leica user (especially the film M cameras) I find that using the X100s is really enjoyable.  The interface between photographer and the tool is extremely important to me. The NEX series ended up being a burden to use.  And as far as the IQ, pretty much everything out there has reached a level of high competency.
