As I still can't decide whether it's worth "for me" the upgrade from my X100 to the X100s - the old girl with it's latest firmware is still a bit of a slouch at worse, but love using her, and still impressed with the results I get from her when I'm not in a hurry.

Apart from the complaints in these forums about skin tones at high ISO's with the X - trans sensor, what would you like to see on the X100T - or whatever they call it.

More pixels - I don't think we need to go there. FF sensor - don't be silly now. Faster autofocus - that's not why we bought this baby. HDR, WI-FI, more fn buttons, tilty screen - well yes - all would be nice.

Love to hear your thoughts.

Because I am focused on the interchangeable lens side of Fuji-X, I doubt I'll upgrade my X100s anytime soon. So many lens I want to buy over the next few years. I can see a X-T1 upgrade body if Fujifilm significantly improves continuous AF to truly rival higher end DSLRs.

However, I can see room for improvement on the X100/X100s:

  1. Increase optical quality so that it beats the 23/1.4 prime
  2. Implement a wireless TTL setup that handles multiple flash, with high speed sync, that rivals the best from Nikon and Canon.
  3. Give it the ability to snap focus (e.g., Ricoh GR) and the ability to lock manual focus setting so that you can do one handed grabs for stealthy street photography
  4. Faster shutter speeds overall
  5. Better ISO control --- bring in the dedicated ISO dial or at least another Fn button so that we can instantly toggle ND filter and instant ISO access
  6. Continue enhancing manual focus aids. I wish the Fuji-X line had focus peaking as responsive and detailed as Sony's.

I just noticed that most of my wish list items are what I want in the successor to the X-T1/X-E1/X-Pro1...
