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.
Summary: Seriously fun camera! My line of work has me hauling full frame DSLR cameras around every weekend, so bringing this to family functions was quite relieving. The image quality is superb, and it gives a look that resembles film!

Summary: This is a great camera and I'd recommend it to anyone. This size and weight is perfect, the lens is sharp and the sensor is excellent producing great image quality. The shooting controls are easy to get to and are mechanical making this one of the easiest cameras to work with and with the...
