Hmm, so it will be interesting to see which scores the X100V will get when DP do a full review.

Hold on:
Carey Rose: Silver or maybe even gold
Richard Butler: bronze tops

Okay everybody have the right to have an opinion off-course but still food for thought.

Looks like a worthy successor to my X100T (when it dies).

It seems to have everything people hoped for, tilt screen, WP (if you use the Fuji filter), better sharpness close-up at 2f.

Off-course IBS would had been nice but I don't care too much about it.

Well done Fuji.

I have a X100T and I love it; the viewfinder, build-in flash and all the control options via bottoms and dials and off-course IQ.
However I can't help being intrigued by the Ricoh, so tiny and yet same sensor size. But I love my viewfinder, if I use the rear screen I have to don reading glasses, so no go on the Ricoh.
28 or 35mm, I think 35mm is best for all round photographing but could live with both.
How is the Ricoh for close up focus? X100 is very good

This is a very very good camera, likely among the top 3 you can buy on the market today for pure IQ.
Some full frame shooters are having a very hard time accepting that fact.

Sweeet, but 8000$ without lens is eye watering expensive, I pass and stick to my XPro1 & X100T.

In reply to:

Scrollop: I bought one for £375 (128gb version) online a few months ago.

It's pretty good:

Pros:
1) Very fast
2) Screen is ok, camera is ok
3) You can use an external sd card
4) 4k video (though they all do nowadays)
5) battery is very good (I can go for 1.5 to 2 days with moderate use and no charge)
6) The fingerprint scanner is great (at hte buttom of the screen where the home button is usually. It is very fast to unlock your phone, and it is multi use so you swipe it to show other programs in memory, hold it for other funtions)

Neutral
1) Two lenses - though I don't really use the "wide aperture mode", and, stupidly, you can't use that mode when the camera is in "Pro photo" mode (ie. manual).

Cons:
1) Not waterproof
2) No image stabilisation (fingers crossed an update will allow this)
3) Chinese (phoning home?)

How can you have bought one a few month ago when it's first launched now?

In reply to:

Lazlo55: Looks like it was worth waiting jumping from a XE-1 to a XE-3 !

I will very likely be getting one. I had hoped for a tilting screen, ah well well.

I had also hoped the inbuilt flash had stayed, they are very handy sometimes.

DP writes under picture3: The viewfinder is the same as seen on XT2? Fingers crossed.

In reply to:

Triplet Perar: This is a video camera. RED could have done the same, and give us a 75 fps 'photography camera' in 8K. Sony have installed the mechanical shutter in A9 only to pretend this fully equipped video device, which needs no mechanical shutter to operate, built for video and the video enthusiasts ... is also a 'photography tool'. I mean, Sony even admitted this several years ago, that they wish to kill photography and substitute it with hi-res video.

Nice action still camera from Sony.
I guess one with much higher MP are coming out soon for ahhmm still photography.
Sony seems to be on top of the camera development right now.
I bet Nikon/Canon senior management meetings are not a happy place to be right now, he-he.

On article Fujifilm X100F Review (891 comments in total)

Gold award hmm, I am getting one, my first X100 ever. Had my sights on one for the last few years but this one is the tipping point, F it is.

As a Fuji fan boy I am delighted that they made such nice cameras that some non Fuji fans love to hate for whatever reason they might have, well up to them, won't loose any sleep over it.

I furthermore trust DPreview's reviews, seems honest enough and tell us what they don't like, and Gold awards are not given often but one for the X100F to the delight for some(me among others) and horror to others.

ttran88: No X trans 24mp, Why didn't they put this sensor in the new XT2?

I am still looking for an XE2. Without a viewfinder I am lost and have to use reading glasses for looking at the LCD.

So until they make a camera with app 8-10" LCD, I stick to viewfinder cameras, LOL.

16MP is good enough for me.

guzzi850m2: I am looking for a good deal on either a XE1 or 2, I want a cheap smallish body to complement my XP1.
The IQ is more than enough for me, don't need a ff Sony to be satisfied, not all of us are pixel pepping.
Love the external control of the Fuji's, a real camera in my view.

Well I been checking more around and I will very likely get the XE2 at some stage, can get them new in SEA for about 500$.
I gonna keep my XP1, love it too much.
Thanks for the inputs.

In reply to:

noflashplease: I wouldn't expect very much from this megapixel monster, which no doubt will cost as much as modest Mercedes. All of the Private Equity owned medium format brands are becoming increasingly irrelevant.

I like Rolls Royce cars too but know I wont get one in this life.

I am still happy enough though.

What a camera man, I bet National Geographic have a few on order already.
