Excerpt: I'm going to try to stay brief. There are so many positive things I can say about this camera. First off, it's small, light; half the weight than my Mark II body and built tough. No plastic was harmed when building this camera.
Probably the single best value available in a compact street camera

Summary: Others have already written extensively on the technical aspects of this camera. I'll just add that at the current price-point in the used market, and taking into consideration the notable performance improvements with the latest firmware update, this has got to be just about the most perfect...
Perfect size for travel. Very impressed with low-light performance.

Summary: I read tons of reviews for this camera, especially compared to the Fuji X100S before I bought. For the price difference, I determined the X100 was the better choice. I do a lot of travel, and having a small, quality camera like the X100 saves lots of room in the bag compared to my DSLR.

Excerpt: I love this little guy! After splitting time between a handful of film cameras (Minolta SRT-201, Contax T2, and a behemoth Mamiya RB67), it's great to have something that can capture images with such amazing quality in such a compact body.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Excerpt: I just swapped my X100 and X-T1 for a black X100S. Why? silent shutter smaller - great for travel one-handed operation no temptation to get extra lenses (my Pentax K5 serves that purpose discreet - black won't entice thieves to think it is a Leica I had a X100 for several years, and realized that...
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Small / Compact
Excerpt: It is a really nice camera to carry around all day, thats why I bought it, but I thought auto focus was faster, it really can not replace my canon DSLR for more serious work. The Image quality is amazing and everything but the accesse to button, the speed with witch you can take a photo in a pro...
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
