In reply to:

Tord S Eriksson: I'm a former Pentax enthusiast, who sold everything I had (20+ lenses, and a handful of bodies), when I found that my then new toy, the Nikon 1 V1 was just as good at shooting as my K5 (I was on my second by then, the first having failed totally, got a new for free).

But this little fellow, the KP, and the photographer taking these shots, impresses me a lot! And, as LensBeginner points out below, the shots cover a lot of different lighting situations and ISOs.

Uh, I seldom hear praises about the V1 on here...
Do you have the 32/1.2?

Julian: Some really good prizes there (the new sigma Arts are awesome), is it restricted to UK entries only - or is it open to the world? I went looking for the rules of entry, but not found them yet...

which would be a bargain

straylightrun: This is what the x100s should have been. Stop with the tiny incremental updates already just to milk every last drop.

ah and a quick reminder about updates:

X100S: 16MP sensor, PDAF, better EVF, ISO6400, bigger buffer and more responsible

X100T: WIFI, OVF Preview, custom buttons, ClassicChrome, Rear Dial instead of switch, EVF +-3, better LCD, E-Shutter, USB charging

X100F: 24MP, better AF system, Joystick, front dial, Isodial, better battery

for me, every camera was a huge improvement in handling.
But IQ was ok on all models in my opinion.

BogdanU: Regarding the Studio scene Image comparison tool, if I compare the X100F with Sony A6500 for example, Sony has much better (sharper) results while Fuji seems out of focus, especially on peoples faces. If I check the X100F gallery, peoples faces are rendered very well. Could it be a problem with the comparison tool ?

Why? Did no one in the team buy a X100F?
And I am surprised that camera manufacturer don't send you gear for free since your test scene is widely accepted as a benchmark in photography

ogl: Ricoh GRIII will be the killer

Exactly. When you are out to get fruit, both will do just fine...
The GR and x100 for me (and my use) are quite comparable and overlapping a great deal.
But I can see where people would use them differently...

Favorable Exponynt: What this camera really needs is an articulating lcd, not for selfies but for waist level shooting and ground level close ups.

It is not necessarily about the screen but the anchors in the body.
The difference might not be much, who knows.
I like it without tilt display. Less parts that can break, more freedom for the engineers to keep the camera small.
Do I miss the flexible screen? sometimes. But it is not a dealbreaker for me.

The RX1R(II) is a cool camera, no doubt. And If you have the cash, why not?
For me, it is just too expensive as is a Leica and I really would love to have one. I am a believer in the concept.
But having 2 kids, I call myself happy all too often when my camera is still working and survived another hard bump onto the floor.

Sizewise, I don't find a RX1 much smaller than a X100. It has a longer lens and weights a bit more...

PedroMZ: A relatively standard prime lens on a camera of this price really ought to be a fair bit sharper.

so true. You just fall in love.
It is small mans leica. Lighter to carry and also easier to pay for.

Any reason? Design, sensor, noise, ...?

no, that's just me trying to look clever.

No, the fujifilm fanboys just buy one camera and stick with it. If you don't understand that, no one can convince you...

You can make it sound like the companies deliberately slow down improvements and maybe they do, who knows. I don't believe it as I think, the better the camera, the better for a companies sales.

But the point is: All the X100 cameras were good when judged initially in reviews.

Demanding that a X100F should have been the fist X100 model update is ridiculous.
The differences between X100, X100S and X100T were not massive, I agree but they were significant enough to release a new model.

New models don't devalue your camera. I still works as on the day you bought your camera.
You are not cheated. But others are given the choice of a better camera. Easy.

In reply to:

Arkon: The lens is quite soft at f2.

That is true. In comparison with my old Nikon V1 + 18.5/1.8 wide open and low ISO, it is sharper than my X100T.
For some it's a dealbreaker and that's ok.
Personally, I couldn't see why you picked the RX100, it is a concept so different from the X100...

In reply to:

Satyaa: Is the X100F better than the combination of X-T20 with 23mm/f2 lens, in terms of IQ or AF? I am asking because I don't know if a fixed lens like this is specifically 'tuned' for this camera to get better results out of the same sensor than a 'replaceable' lens would.

I understand the size difference. I will lose the 'pocket-ability' and will gain the ability to attach some other lenses if needed.

Thanks

for best IQ go with the interchangeable system and see for yourself if the 23/2 or 23/1.4 ticks your boxes.
For small-footprint versatility and ease of mind, go with the X100 line. Nothing beats this camera, if you like Rangefinder-Style with Manual controls and good IQ in a small package. I'm falling in love every day again with my X100T. Close to sell even my Sigmas, since I never make use of the improved IQ.

Favorable Exponynt: It should matter to us because dpreview thinks camera's should do all the work for us inept incompetent humans who don't get to call themselves photographer.

Yes, let's go full auto retard! Only then is a camera good. Pro-P&S yeaaah

raw is useless.. ahm, sure... I guess... you are right.
The first one to tell us, really.
We learned a lot today.
Thank you.
BTW you should ditch your K-5II and get a real camera like the K-1 or better, a Nikon/Canon.

In reply to:

Dennis: To me, Fujifilm got the concept right with the (original) X100 with focus on tradition, usability, tactile experience and minimalism. A few oddities (mainly rooted in software). Design has in incremental steps improved e.g. sensor, view finder and general performance.

With X100F all main parameters, shutter time, aperture and ISO are visible/adjustable with the camera turned off - a distance scale on the lens would be great.

Some improvements likely thought of as new features, I see as UX idiosyncrasies - I know we may not all agree. But on a "photographers camera" using the focus ring to maneuver software features defies logic to me.

Also the new extra front dial of only little use; can be an ISO dial (A setting) and the back dial can be used for shutter time (T setting). And the C on the exposure compensation dial can come in handy, but to the purist, this is just as inconsistent, as the mess of dials and switches on Nikon dF; sometimes you can trust the dials - and sometimes not.

well I envy the X100F user for the possibility to use the front dial for ISO/EV correction in a press of the dial.
And I often use the focus ring to cycle through the images in preview mode.

I agree, that the multiple dials are sometimes a bit hard to get to learn and there are strange things eg. no option to reverse the dial directions. but you adapt over time and at one point (with training) you are quick to control the camera to the situation at hand (like you would with any other camera)
use and learn.

In reply to:

turvyT: I don't understand many comments. X100 are particular cameras with a fixed lens, old style handling and outstanding O/EVF. I don't like the implementation of MF (much better in the Leica Q), but the x100 promotes some style in the photographer, very loose and free, which is well portraid in dpr review. Even in a guy like Steve Huff, photos with the X100 have this style. This camera is comparable (relatively speaking) with the GR, or the Q, but not with any DSLR or IL Mirrorless.

yes, but people get carried away when they compare the studio scene and base their opinion on 100% magnification comparisons. This feature should be taken of the DPR site. I'm here every day, but this service really bothers me...

In reply to:

NicoPPC: Any comments or comparaison in the article about lens performance ?

well, isn't subject isolation best with lower distance to the object?
and isn't the subject isolation best with large aperture?
ergo, isn't it the best strategy in photography to be AS CLOSE as possible with the LARGEST APERTURE to produce the highest amount of BOKEH?
Because you are limited with the tiny sensor, you should make up for it with macro-like portraits at f2, no?

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.

Well, if it could be less expensive that would have been nice.
I still didn't find a way to break it to my wife to upgrade our T to a F for that money...
