polarrev: Looks like they sacrificed too much for pocketability; Slow aperture, soft lens, poor battery. I would look look for a better alternative at this price Level.

Changing my comment: Briefly, it looks like they sacrificed too much for pocketability; Slow aperture, soft lens, poor battery. I would look look for a better alternative at this price Level.
Looking at user experience though, it seems like those commenting are into photo and like the G1X III. If high ISO Works fine, in many cases the slow lens isn't that important.

If it's marked 'IP65' it's waterproof, but must be checked regularly.

pro photo 2011: Save $200 and buy the regular black model if you are in the market for this camera. It is much harder to keep a silver-colored camera in excellent condition, just check out used cameras and their conditions in pictures on eBay.

Anodized surfaces are quite tough. I suppose they use 50um surface colour at least. We have used it on our Products for decades(Power supplies type Mascot).

wolfloid: Thanks for the review.

Something that always seems to be left out of these reviews is a real sense of the ergonomics in the field. Given that so many photographers coming from high end cameras are used to back-button focus, why is there no discussion of whether or how this extremely useful facility can be implemented? If not, are there useful workarounds?

There is also something seemingly limiting when testing fixed lens cameras with 35mm lenses with this test board. Both the Sony RX1R and this X100F seem to underperform compared with other testing results. Tom Stanworth (http://thephotofundamentalist.com/) has just put up a large number of test shots showing this X100F lens/sensor combination to be superb, both centrally and in the corners, even at f2. Others tested the RX1r showing that lens/sensor as excellent, but which tested badly with this chart. What is it? Testing technique or just an unfortunate set up for these cameras?

1.4m distance to chart. That was informative for me regarding distortion of 35mm (which of course is normal for this focal length). I've seen Pictures of "eggheads" at the edge of the Picture, which I did not like. I checked the chart, but see I can't move all the way to the cormers/edge. I know my English is not Perfect.

•Tele-Conversion Lens TCL-X100 II: does that mean 70mm digital zoom x1.4(tele lens) also? Would be almost 110mm. Or is that taking it too far?
