Don't see why not. It's got a lens and a sensor, all it needs is a landscape to shoot.

someone else on this forum posted this link - take a look at the landscapes shoot with the camera and then ask yourself the same question again.

Re: X100F for landscape?

I have an X100T and I use it for landscape. It was all I used for the last four months of last year and on our recent vacation. The X100T has the same sensor and processor as the X-T2 or X-Pro2 so the real question is will 23mm satisfy your landscape needs. Plus you can add the WCL-X100 which gives you a 19mm lens.

Thanks for your help!

I thought it was the x100F who had the same sensor as the XT 2?, are you sure about the X100T?

Re: X100F for landscape?

You can always stitch two or more pictures together to get wider image. It is better than wide lens

Re: X100F for landscape?

I think your nx500 would be the best landscape camera. You might want to see if you can find the best wide angle lens that Samsung used to make.

What a great set of photos. That photographer has a great sense of photographic art.

A very convincing link.

To me the 23mm is the most versatile lens

if I can only have 1 lens that 'd be it

I don't have the X100F but often shoot with the 23mm f2 with my Xt20 and I can shoot many subjects, landscapes included in 1 day

As prices start to drop (eventually) I'd certainly get my hand on one

The Xt20 + 23mm f2 is a tad 'large' compared to the X100F

Cheers,

The question is, will you be satisfied shooting landscapes and limited to just a 23mm (roughly 35mm equivalent) focal length? It's not at all uncommon when shooting landscapes to use focal lengths ranging from 10mm to 200mm (15mm to 300mm equivalent). By contrast, some photographers enjoy the challenge of using a single focal length to carve the best shot from every scene. There is no right or wrong answer, here. It's an exercise in identifying your aesthetic sensibility. If the 23mm built-in lens calls to you, get the X100F. If you like more variety in available focal lengths for your landscape work, get an ILC.

Hi,

If you're happy with the choice of focal length(s) then yes, absolutely, the X100 series can make a great landscape lens.

I've got an x100T and use it lot for landscapes - often with the WCL to give a 28mm equivalent.

Images below are all with the X100T...

Thanks,

Re: X100F for landscape?

Yes, I traveled with it exclusively on trips last year and its a very versatile camera and focal length.  Just keep it stopped down at least 5.6 but probably better f8 because it does exhibit a little bit of field curvature.

Stunning.  Replacing lx100 soon for bike and bike tours.  Very inspired to fuji.  What filters do you carry?

Landscape photos are completely out of the question...or are they?  It seems you need to perform a bit more research before purchasing.  I suggest Google.

Re: X100F for landscape?

I think it is fine for landscapes.  It is, however, not as good as some other Fuji camera/lens combinations.  I think it depends on how much you need in terms of edge sharpness.  The lens is a little soft on the edges.
