Buying a older used X100x/XTxx. Newer body with ACROS worth it over older less expensive one?
1

Hi all.  I'm looking to pick up an older "beater" used x100s/t or xt10/20 body. I shoot 95% black and white JPEG, mostly landscapes and document trail/hiking/mountain biking trips (think theradavist.com).  Because of my affinity for black and white, and dislike for editing RAW files,  I am wondering if a body such as the XT20 or X100F would be worth it for the SOOC ACROS jpegs alone. Is Acros worth it if I already do minor editing on all my MONOCHROME images anyway?  I generally process photos in Snapseed on an IPAD air, mostly small local edits and adjustments to tone curve.  I am not interested in applying Acros  sim to raw files in post processing, not really feasible.

A used XT10 or x100s/t would save me a lot of money over an XT20, and an x100f is still outta my "beater camera" budget. I could afford the XT20, but would have no money left for the XF27mm lens i want to pair with it.

Thanks for your input! TL;DR - is a body with sooc Acros jpegs worth it over editing Monochrome jpegs from an older 16mp body?
