Hello everyone.

Long time DSLR shooter here that has gotten tired of lugging around full frame equipment.

I basically do street photo and everything points to either the Fuji X100 or X100s as my next camera.

I've been doing lots of research and some reviewers mention that the original X100 has some

superb color rendition that makes light look "special" when shooting due to a different sensor

from the X100s which appears to be sharper.

The classic X100 has a "je ne sais quoi" way of processing light that makes pictures more pleasing.

Do you agree with this assessment? I could really use the extra $ saved from buying a slightly older

camera model.

Hi Edu,

I see from your later post you've already made your decision on the X100, so good luck.

Personally i've found that the VSCO filters can work wonders with the colour aspect of processing the X100 files. Yes, the cameras output in the film modes looks great, but a bit of extra processing works wonders - if you like the distinctive look. All of theseare X100 processed in VSCO. Good luck with you new camera.
