Excerpt: I just spend the first weekend with the x100s. Well, mixed emotions actually. Especially the back buttons are embarassingly fiddly, but produces amazing OOC images. Pros: (1) Classic, cool design (2) High built quality (except the back buttons) (3) Amazine out-of-camera images both JPEG and RAW (4) Very compact Cons: (1) Almost too small, especially the lens is small to have both ...
Excerpt: My Fuji X100s after two weeks of use, shown with Fuji LC-X100s case (yes, it's better than the old case, it has a battery door flap) and strap, as well as Match Technical "bop" black shutter button. Soooo... I've had this thing for two weeks now - got it on Friday April 19th, and today is Friday May 5th. I've clicked the shutter over 1000 times now, so I guess that makes me a frickin' expert, right? Right.
Excerpt: With the right expectations, the X100S is a superb camera. The image quality is topnotch up to at least ISO 6400, the handling is intuitive (I hardly need the manual), operation (startup time, shutter lag, responsiveness of buttons) is very good, and last but not least, the cam looks awesome. The price is okay considering the handling, build, and image quality.
Excerpt: I don’t know about you but I am getting a little bored with high ISO tests, pixel peeping and Bible arguments between fan boys from different camps. Don’t get me wrong, high ISO tests are important and I use the comparometer on Dpreview here and check DXO ratings and fellow photographers and bloggers like everybody else.
Summary: I'm a professional photographer, for work I use Nikon D3x or a Hasselblad H with a digital back (rental) I bought this to have a nice walk around camera. For that its perfect. The view finder is AMAZING! I have nothing bad to say about it The focus can be slow and I dont like how you have to use the digital view finder to focus on close things, I'd rather take my chance with parallax error and guess. The menus are odd, but easy to get to know after a few minutes.
Summary: The X100 is the last body out of the bag, unless I'm looking to go light & discrete. I'm a nature/wilflife photographer, so this camera does not see a lot of action. However, when I'm on the streets of a city or visiting a sleepy little village, the X100 is my go to body. The 35 f2.0 is fast and sharp, while the body is uncluttered and responsive enough for most street shooting situations.
Summary: I own the Fuji X-Pro1 and decided to buy the Black Edition x100 as more of a carry anywhere camera. Just arrived today-Saturday-with an extra battery from Fuji and the camera is dead. It will not start up with either battery after charging both or with or without a card. This is utterly unacceptable. Turns out this is more common than I ever imagined as there are many posts of either dead X100's or ones where start-up is inconsistent.
Summary: The weight and complexity of too much gear was weighing me down. I needed relief. This camera came to the rescue. It is light, compact, and keeps a very low profile. The online reviews are confirmed. The AF is not speedy and the menu organization was done and implemented on a napkin at a football game after too many beers! and... I don't care. The images rock. It's easy to use. And I have it with me instead of in my car or backpack.
