In reply to:

fad: Still gathering dust for me, after all these years.

Sadly, useless for street photography.

I just bought MG Voigtlander 40/1.8 MF lens for D750 to fill this same niche.

1/125 f5.6 auto iso and shoot.

In reply to:

kreislauf: reading the comments here, you either have people dismissing the X100 for its slow auto focus or loving it.

so in the end, the point-and-shooters moved on to quicker focusing cameras while the others can work around the issue?

Got a Canon 7D and Fuji X100, the Fuji is slower but not slow in a sense it does not work.

Alex NYC: Owned this camera back in 2011. Really enjoyed its hybrid VF and look (yes that matters!)
Got sticky aperture :( and that was a massive disaster for original x100 until they fixed it close to EOL

Thank you Alex,

Most prone were the 12 & 13 SN.

fedway: I have a few old film bodies but I have always tried to have current generation digital bodies. However, after reading this flashback review, I am now interested in getting my first used "vintage" digital.

SN 12 & 13 were more prone (if not only) to SAB so get a fixed one or a different SN to be safe.

Curious on how the lens holds up with 24MP.

AF joystick YESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is what I have missing (also have Canon 7D).

Interesting.

cosinaphile: your throwing arm has diminished a lot ...it is a camera that is too new imo

also you dont quite make clear that the multitude of firmware has made a camera that is respectable and usable and whose charms easily outweigh its fault .... it was a new animal when it came out .... and it was a usable camera when it came out .... the firmware that noticeably improved speed and af accuracy made it a present we could open all year

another clue to this camera being a bit new ..... the cheapest used cameras sell for 450 -500 usd

as opposed to an avg of 25 bucks for previous cameras jogging our nostalgia strings

I still remember when I saw it in a magazine...€1199 oops.

But in 2013 found a new one a lot cheaper :)

May I know was SN (the first two digits) that was?

I keep track of this information for the X100.

Thanks Mike

OlyPent: Which Fuji was it that had the weird burned out highlights?

That was the X10.

The X100 still is the most fun camera to use I ever owned and still own.

The original price tag was a bit steep for me in the day but when firmware 2.0.1 came out (no longer in production!) found a nice new one with serial number 24 :)

Had to have it :)

There are some quircks but there are also a lot of things the camera does right.

When out and about people smile at you when looking at the camera. The looks are just fantastic, most cameras are kind of ugly in a way.

But thats just looks, what about features?

ND filter, zone focussing, high speed sync built in flash! auto iso.

This not for everybody but this camera is pure emotion.

Took it out on the streets of Paris for some general and street photography.

Had the opportunity go see a HCB exhibition at Centre Pompidou, afterwards I felt a bit like HCB. Nice display of his pictures but also some film of him was shown.

Thanks DPR for pushing for firmware updates and thank you Fuji for listening.

A classic.

This is Joy Division Undercover (coverband).

In the back there was a video of the original Joy Division, they also had their video grapher/photographer.

Very nice people, I was asked to introduce myself before the show since I asked permission to also shoot from stage.

So I did, we talked some music, photography and the usual BS.

papa natas: And I thought Anthony Quinn was dead...(?)
Now, and with sugar on top:
We never crop at joints and articulations.
I'm talking about the hand.
Then again, I'm Old School.

Sometimes this is the full pic as it happened.

Hey, even HCB made a picture without feet ;)

I think this is a very nice picture with a story.

This man is about to make a big decision that probably will change his life for ever. Not about things that may have been cropped out but the thing(s) you do see.

If you strive for perfection you probably never take one.

A perfect picture may also lack a certain energy.
