Terry Breedlove: Trump is about to erase everything Obama has done. His Legacy Lives by the executive order and will die by the executive order. Overnight !

Children - this is about a great photographer, not politics. Go play outside.

Snapper2013: What kind of cameras did Pete Souza use? Also Anyone know what lens was used in the first shot? Thanks

There was an article in popular photography last year. He uses 2 Canon FF cameras with L zooms and a Fuji X100 series.

DamianFI: The Nikkor 1.8/50 D is very underrated.
Super sharp in the centre wide open and CHEAP.

Are you seriously suggesting a 50mm can replace a 20mm, regardless of performance?

tkbslc: Does 1.25x larger sensor really make so much of a difference compared to FF? It doesn't seem to when comparing other formats.

This does make sense as a step up from Fuji APS-C, though. It's got nearly twice the diagonal. Kind of like 4/3 vs FF in that regard.

Who's we? 99.9% of people on forums and the internet.

Your formula is correct, which means that a 1.7x change in area will be barely more than half a stop.

veliev: I have always loved the X100 cameras, but they don't make much practical sense knowing that an X-T10 and the X-T20 with the 27mm lens ads up to about the same package.
And when the body ages, you don't have to throw the lens away with it.

f2.8 and still quite a bit larger overall.

eazizisaid: Naming products with the Mark iteration is the best option imo. Simple for both the customers and the makers.

Really the only possible options left out to infinity are E for Eight and N for Nine and O for One-Hundred.

They probably should have just done X100, X110, X120, X130, etc....

noflashplease: I think it would be cheaper to buy a real Leica rangefinder than to have upgraded to all four generations of Fujifilm X100. Enough already.

Nobody says you have to upgrade annually.

otto k: I know it's a slim chance, but Nokia 808 Android edition would be a phone for me.

A Nokia 808 is ancient. 512MB of RAM and a Single core 1.3ghz would extremely painful to use. I doubt you could even text without major lag.

I'd prefer a new model with similar size sensor.

That's why I said "Very close". No need to be stubborn and intentionally combative.

@onlooker - Sony RX1 II is a very close FF equivalent of the X100 series. I don't think Deep7 was talking about an A7R or SLR.

vscd: ...I'm interested how the fifth will be named ;)

X110?

Seems a lot easier to increment a numeral than an abbreviation.

This has the same effect. Identical product name with a trailing letter. Does anyone think that the X100F is an entirely different range of product than an X100S?

"mark" sounds pretty silly to me, honestly. If they want to use numerals, I'd rather just see them tacked onto the end. Canon 5D4 or Sony RX100IV for example.

4/3 and APS-C are functionally identical, just like FF and this FF-Plus sensor will be. Sure if you want to compare 100% crops of test charts you can say one is the winner, but real world output is too close to care about. There are zero situations where APS-C can get a great photo and 4/3 cannot.

Hopefully the X100T has a nice discount now.

We typically compare sensors by the diagonal. It's a 1.25x larger diagonal.

PliciPlici: Can somebody explain to me why would someone pay this price for a body Leica? What makes it so different for such a price?

Exclusivity.

adengappasami: I wouldn't be surprised if light camera is next. Two years since customers paid and nothing delivered yet

Yeah they were marketing really hard for Christmas 2015 and taking money for pre-orders. Here it is past Christmas 2016 and there's nothing new.
