X100F where is the fun?


Ever since the first x100 came out, I wanted one but the prices really put me off. After years of waiting I recently pulled the trigger on a used x100f.

My first takeaways:

- hybrid OVF is very impressive

- EVF crappy, my EM5 ii viewfinder with same specs is better

- AF inferior to EM5 ii

- Aperture ring can be accidentally moved as it has no lock

- image quality similar to EM5 with 20mm lens

- colours are nice out of the box

- size similar to EM5 but less ergonomic

- menus better than Olympus

So far, I find few reasons to keep it as the EM5 has similar quality and is more versatile.

What am I missing?

X100 afficionados, please shower me with suggestions on how I can make this camera shine.

Cheers Gerry
