Excerpt: I purchased the X100S looking for a digital rangefinder experience. Despite its strengths, I was disappointed in this respect. The body feels too plastic and light, almost like a toy camera. Maybe that's why it has a tendency to heat as an I-Phone or a Macbook pro.
Pros: Great Resolution
Cons: Complicated Controls, Lag / Shutter Delay, Poor in Low Light, Short Battery Life
Summary: I tried this camera for a couple of days and decided to send it back. On a positve note I loved the looks and feel of the unit. The jpeg quality was good, but raw didn't work out for me. I couldn't load it in CS5. The main reason for the rejection was the auto focus.
Unbelievably bad focus system cripples this otherwise brilliant camera

Summary: I waited for this camera for an entire year, since the concept camera came out last September. If ever there should be a "fan boy" of the x100, it SHOULD be me, but sadly it is not. Ill point out who I think this camera is for, and who it is NOT for.
Summary: I have used this camera a lot and can honestly say that it is really overpriced for what it is. I honestly fail to understand the hype behind these cameras other than a retro feeling which brings the older of us some nostalgia.
Hugely over-rated camera that could have been great

Summary: I'm sure like many photographers here I started by reading some of the great reviews of this little camera. I too confess to having been seduced by the PR machine and some previously well trusted reviewers who have all basically been raving about it, so for XMAS 2012, this was my treat.
Summary: Ich habe die X100 im Juli 2011 bekommen und etwa 4000 Fotos damit gemacht. Wenn die Kamera richtig funktioniert, macht sie überragende Bilder was Schärfe, Dynamikumfang und Bildrauschen angeht.
