keeponkeepingon: It's a travel web site but nowhere does it tell you where they went to surf, where they stayed etc.

Tons of pictures of random maine stuff and one.... one surfing picture.

For the dpreview crowd it's equally disappointing. Nothing about the process, gear, art just that surfing is his muse or something.

It's like one long "I took a picture" on a road trip.

Here's a direct link to the one surfing picture if you are not in the mood for going through random maine pictures looking for it:

Certainly not the typical surf photo we usually see. Maine never known for having great waves. I suspect these shots were connected to a recent storm in the New England area.

babart: This is a beach in York, Maine, which is near the Nubble Lighthouse, shown in one of the photos. They might have been better off to go a bit farther north to Higgins Beach where there could have been more surfers......that is, if the snooty residences haven't put an electric fence around the beach.

Hi babrt, Thanks for pointing out the Nubble Lighthouse and York. I'm older and York was quite a place 60 years ago. Doubt I'll ever go back there but the memories are nice.

Wow. This is strange. Just yesterday after several months I charged and put a battery in my LX3. I do so every so often with my unused gear. It is in great shape. I was struck by how small it was. I took about a dozen photos and they looked good. This camera served me well and was ahead of it's time with a better point and shoot lens with limited zoom.

SMCTakumar: Beautiful camera and the images it produces are really good. I like the lens and the FOV. This would be my choice, or maybe wait for the Ricoh GR III? Ricoh please release something to give this X100F a good run :)

Thank you Graham above. I will check it out. Just so you know I have the GRII and really enjoy it but I have the feeling the X100F is that much better.
Again, thanks for the post. My reply is posted in a friendly way. I have given you a "like".

Other than a great size advantage I am wondering how an X-T20 with the 23mm 1.4 compares shooting and IQ wise with the X100F? The built in ND filter would be gone but changing a filter on the T20 is no big deal.

My Fuji is still the X-E1 from 2012. I would expect both the X100F and X-T20 to have much better IQ. The X-E1 has served me very well as has the 23mm. I would LOVE the X100F but already have an RX1r and Leica X Typ 113 for fixed lens and enjoy both. Problem is I tend to keep the 23 on 95% of the time.

ogl: Ricoh GRIII will be the killer

I would say the possible GRIII compares more to the X70.

Hi, If there is a GR111 it won't even be close. The lack of EVF alone will continue to separate the two brands. I have a GRII and love it but it isn't as good as the X100T. I doubt Ricoh will even try to equal the X100f.
As noted above my post the GRII is 28mm. Yes you can crop to 35 but who buys a camera knowing they may crop half their shots? Some love 28mm but many don't.
The GR line compares to the X70.
Fun discussion. Thanks for the above comments.

KrampusClaus: resolution is quite poor considering its somewhat competition, look at woodcut print left of center the upper left corner and background, it compared to the a6xxx, canon m3/m5, etc make it very low resolution, in the ultimate detail sense.

obviously it is the lens? or smearing processing?, how can we know ?

the results are the evidence !

Foosa, Enjoyed your post. It helped ME. Thanks much!

Tapper123: If only I could actually buy one.

Not in stock anywhere in my area. Adorama and B+H have to reload as well. Will they ever be in Best Buy? I just don't know. I believe one Best Buy near me still carries the T.

s1rf4n: Great review. Thanks DPR Staff.

I have to say I am a bit confused with all of the negative comments about price on this gem...If this camera was not worth its pricing then how in the world has it sold so many camera's? Now on the 4th iteration.

I personally really enjoy stepping out with my x100t for some street shots. I would not pick this up as a one and only camera but it is awesome for a supplemental for a big rig. I think I will be upgrading to the F this summer.

Posted in a friendly way: I disagree with the "hate" comment. To me most posts are merely opinions. I would not expect every comment to be positive about any camera out there. We all don't like the same music, books, movies or cars so why would cameras be any different? I certainly don't view negative posts about a camera as "hate". We all know what "hate" really is and comments such as "soft lens" "Leica Q is better" don't meet the definition. Maybe that word has become over used?

It would be boring around here if only positive posts about products were allowed. I want to read all the comments both thumbs up and down. It keeps the DPR interesting enough that I pop in three or four times a day. One of my favorite cameras is the Leica X Vario and it doesn't upset me one bit to read the many negative posts about it. I'm old now and I don't take anything personal out here. Again..posted in a friendly way.
Take care.

gulffish: Richard, very nice review, as usual. I've been a Fuji fan since the F30, 31 days and still miss those wonderful little cameras that could produce some amazing results that were like finding a silver dollar under you pillow when you lost a tooth instead of a quarter! There are very few "i make everyone jump for joy" sensors. I wish some would read more carefully or without a critique in mind before they do read. I sure I saw "Output of X-Trans sensor not to everyone's taste" in print. Thanks again for your solid work, always a pleasure.

Yes, I loved the F series and bought most. F10,20,30,31,40! I think Ritz sold the 40 as the 45. They were new and exciting small cameras with better low light shooting than most small digitals. Fun post!

Hellraiser: The lens is a bit outdated. Time to bump its specs a bit? f1.8?

Gold award and all that BUT the "soft" word does jump out. I have had a chance to shoot with the Leica Q and I loved it (except for it having a 28mm lens) but many of the shots had a soft look to them. Yes, very nice rendering but not tack sharp. I am wondering if I got too used to Sony sharpness? Sharpness isn't always a good thing.

Would be fun to see shots with the 15mm 1.7 or even stealthier older 20mm. Glad that they kept the GM1+5 line going.

As it is with just the small kit lens these look good.

Veducci: The Nikon 1 S2 14MP sensor produces better images.
20 MP`s are an overload on a 1" sensor.

I don't see the overload on an of the RX100 line.

Good one! By the way, some of those "store manager" shots on the wall as you enter stores are classics.

Shoot "misery" and try to include:
1. black and white heavy on the grain
2. bearded old man
3. billows of smoke from a pipe
4. blackheads
5. choose "wisdom" for a title
