photo perzon: Typical poor Pana skin tones in the jpegs. Get a Fuji X70 instead. Make people look healthy.

Well of course you are right Ben. But it is my heart's belief that portrait or street photography of people is so much more inspiring that scenic. I mean scenic they have already at the gift shop that they paid some guy that dragged a 5 pound camera with a three pound lens and a 20 pound tripod and that scene is really the same almost. People photos are why we are reading this forum late at night. True scenic pros don't read forums, they work. Sport pros and their leg sized lenses well that is another word. Parents of sporting children yes yes Pana is great. But for pensive, human feelings photos, Fuji has something very special. I had a friend a Canon user of course who told me he never takes pictures of people. I saw his pictures, like the famous old sneakers thrown on top of the power lines to swing. I'd like to have seen the person making the decision to throw and also the moment of action. Well that great Pana lens on an Oly would have compelling samples.

great Javier: The direct competitor for this fuji a3 is the sony a6000. Three years later, the sony a6000 is hard to beat.

Yeah Sony skin tones make people look blanched. Just no pink on the face, just like Casper the ghost. Fuji makes people look great. Now with Fuji I get requests for more jpegs and prints.

straylightrun: Does the X100F update improve the slow autofocus speed?

I do not find the X100F slow at all.

jbw28: Really enjoyed this article. As it is a constant struggle to find that nice, light "street style" camera you can carry around with you.

Ricoh GR problems:

horrible skin tones at high ISOs, mentioned in many reviews
horrible color jpegs, reds are oranges
horrible AF speed in low light
my GR puffed smoke but kept on going

I like the digital 28mm 35mm 47mm zoom

In my opinion better is the Nikon Coolpix A, Fuji X70

With horrible skin tones from Panasonic, its weakest feature. Go Fuji, Nikon instead. Canon, Olympus

mcshan: Compare a couple of hundred shots on Flickr of each camera and it is obvious the Ricoh is the better.

Skin tones of the GR make people look like zombies, grey, dull. Sick. Horrible skin tones. GR has plenty of jpeg color issues too.

Fuji skin tones are great. So are the Coolpix A from Nikon.

The skin tones of the GR make people look grey, sick. Google GR samples.

The Fuji X70 skin tones make people look healthy, rosy.

Night and day.

ogl: Ricoh GRIII will be the killer

GR is a loved camera, but the skin tones at high ISO are zombie grey. People look ill. In contrast, Fuji has excellent skin tones that make people look healthy. Night and day for people pictures.

Tieu Ngao: The X-T20 is a bargain considering that it's only $100 more than the X-T10, and $500 cheaper than the Sony a6500.
Nikon, where are you???

sony has skin tones that are too white, too blanched, words come from my son that has two serious Sony setups

The G7Xii gives you so much more firepower than the 9 in so many ways. The 9 is a slow lens, which makes it really for outdoors only.

The winner here is the Canon G7X. I had the Sony RX100, the II, the III, the IV, and the V. The sony pictures make people look so white, so blanched, they look boring. I bought a Canon G7X and wow! People look tanned, healthy. I am getting wows and requests for reprints, resends, people are commenting on my pictures with interest! One does not need an EVF for night social pictures. For day pictures, yes, but day light is satisfied with any camera. It is high ISO night or indoor pictures that require a special camera and that is the G7X. The G9X is too dark.

Also alternatives for indoor work are the amazing Fuji X70 with its angelic exquisite skin tones, the Nikon A with its perfect jpeg skin tones. The Ricoh GR and the Panasonics are great for buildings and landscapes, but not good for skin tones.

My favorites the Canon G7x and the Fuji X70.

villagranvicent: m43 is doomed.

M4/3 has very limited high ISO capabilities. At ISO 3000 the Fuji is fine, most m4/3 don't do great at 1200. You can use that to compensate, with the advantage of shooting moving subjects well without flash.

zodiacfml: Nice film simulation modes. I hope they have something to compete against the Ricoh GR as a slim but APSC powerhouse.

yes the GR has a sharper lens. But the skin tones of people with the GR are horrible, ashen, sick looking. All reviews criticize GR jpegs, wrong colors. All reviews praise the Fuji X100. Look at google samples of high ISO from GR, yuck. For pictures of faces, the GR is inferior. Also at 28mm the X100 is better at 35mm.

In reply to:

kobakokh: This Fijifilm has just one small problem: lens is much less sharper then 28mm lens of Ricoh GR. And also if Fuji will add to AF system something like Ricoh's Snap focus, its will be absolutely great camera. That Snap focus is way better then maybe any focus system in the world...

Ricoh GR produces skin tones that are aches, people look ill. Makes everybody age 30 years. All reviews mention that GR jpegs have the wrong colors, need work, and are inferior. Aside from those little things, GR is great.

Impulses: DFD, 4K, and the flip screen alone are big incentives to move up from my GM1... Might wait until it's a bit cheaper, as Panasonic bodies are prone to in short order, but I'm definitely glad Panasonic hasn't given up on smaller bodies AND isn't trying to price them up into the one grand range right off the bat. I'm sure many will bemoan the lack of an EVF, but personally I use my GM1 just as much as my E-M5 II.

GM5 has a viewfinder!

rob579: Since this would not be "my backup camera, because my main camera is a blah-blah", I wanted to be sure I got more bang for my meager buck. I missed a longer zoom, plus the video quality is disappointing, so I moved on. Still looking, but maybe an Elph 360 or Sony WX350 will do.

ZS100 focuses poorly, even after signaling focus is ready. ZS100 skin tones are sickly, compared to Canon making people look great. ZS100 EVF is a little torture.
