Agree completely and fully with Jo No and Dennis_H!
I have Graphite Silver Edition, which unlike the black, is more difficult to read controls. Something that can be good to know for those considering a Grapithe (limited edition).
A camera that despite its small size is incredibly powerful! The sensor provides amazing color and detail. The viewfinder is absolutely stunning with many great features (I say used to be full-frame with optical viewfinder), and with the latest update are even more cool features, so as completely silent electronic shutter. But for pure photography, it is after all the basics that are important, and the various control dials are easier to use than you think. An almost perfect camera simply! And for those of you who think it is slow, do not forget to activate the "High performance" in the Power Management!
The only negative things I can think of are:
- With manual aperture, manual shutter and auto-ISO so you can not use exposure compensation, as it is advantageously possible to do with the Nikon.
- Autofocus is good and accurate, but lacks more advanced features.
- The buttons on the back may seem small, especially when using gloves.
A near-perfect camera and definitely the best of the Fuji X-series so far. Highly recommended!
Went from a Nikon D90 to the following experiences with the Fujifilm X100. Very good camera, a clear step up in both image quality and performance in the dark.
* Easy even with eg XF 35/1.4 despite the brightness of the lens.
* Razor sharp JPEG with default settings, and tighten them too much.
* Diafilmsimuleringslägena Provia, Astia, Velvia let me get stylish JPEG without much finishing at all in Lightroom = more fun to come home later after photo rounds.
* Negative Film Simulation Pro Neg Hi with a little boost of color gives me on the other side properly with dynamic range (bright and shaded portions of the same image) and a nice base to finishing.
* I believe that APS-C is the perfect compromise between full-frame and agility, not without full-frame a second ago I bought this camera, which I was eager with my Nikon D90.
* Cruel lineup with the Fujifilm XF lenses. Do XF 35, 18-55, 55-200, and everyone's really high performance, even telephoto zoom. Unused to this! The downside of course is that they cost a bit and switching from other systems. Self-funded I much of the transition by selling old camera, lenses, and large camera backpack ... which I of course no longer need. ;-)
It has been somewhat controversial because X-Trans sensor reproducing grass (becomes "sticky"), but I am now quite convinced that this was a lot of weaknesses in the RAW algorithm of the old versions of Lightroom. I'm pretty picky and have not experienced this as a particularly notable problem at all in Lightroom 5.4, even when I checked in 1:1 zoom.
(Speaking of H2SO4's review below).
Fuji's X-Trans sensor is recognized very well, their optics are high quality and many of their cameras have mechanical controls in addition to, or if you want, instead of menus. They make cameras for those who like to shoot. Click on the tab "Reviews" and read a bit ..
