Hi all,

 

I'm looking to buy a Fujifilm X100F in the very near future and I'm looking to get some feedback from anyone who might own one?

 

 

 

- What do you / don't you like about it?

 

- Have you upgraded from a X100T? If so, why?

 

- Are you new to photography or a pro?

 

 

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't have the X100F, but moved from Nikon SLR to an X-T1 nearly 2 years ago and have no regrets about making the move. The image quality, build quality, handing and feature set are great.

 

 

 

My only question would be that considering the relatively high price and not particularly compact form-factor of the X100F, why not invest in one of the interchangeable lens systems instead? You can do fine with the kit lens, but then branch out if need or whim take you - the Fujinon X Lens range is brilliant

 

 

 

The EX2S offers similar shape and style and size with the X-Pro2 (or even X-Pro1) at the high end. The X-T1 and X-T2 are also brilliant and like the others, not really any bigger than the 100F

Thanks for the reply.

 

I've heard amazing things about the XT1 and it's a great looking piece of kit. At one point in time I was weighing up whether to get the XT1 or it's baby brother the XT10 - maybe I need to potentially revisit this option again.

 

Up until a month a go I was in the market for an ultra compact camera that I could quite literally fit in my pocket. I do a lot cycling and tend to take a lot of photos when I'm out riding so the requirement to have an ultra compact camera was high on the list, I came very close to pulling the trigger on a Sony RX100 M4 purely because it ticked all those boxes. However, I learned during all the youtube reviews that I watched that it was bit overkill for just cycling and just using my phone camera, which is decent anyways would still be the best fit for purpose.

 

I went into a local camera store in Auckland and got talking to a guy about the RX100 and began to expand on what I would likely use it for and he turned my attention to the Fuji X100T - instant attraction! Sure, it's no compact but it does feel more like an everyday camera for me. Outside all the cycling photos, I enjoy capturing photos of family, vacations, landscape etc, I can't picture the RX100 becoming an everyday camera for me due to it's size.

 

Having the ability to changes lenses is quite low on my list, I'm quite a big fan of just having a fixed prime lens. I've owned DLSR's and M 4/3's in the past with various lenses and I just never used them, the only 2 lenses that I ever ended up using in any situation were my 50mm and my 20mm - In saying that however, I'm keen to revisit the XT1 after you mentioning it.

I have the 100F. I don't think it's an everyday camera as such, although it is - let me explain.

I have an Olympus OMD EM1 system, with several different lenses. It's a great camera and fantastic for a variety of use-cases. But I felt my photography was getting a bit complicated and I wanted to go to something a bit simpler. I wanted to be forced to walk around to compose and I wanted to try a rangefinder. I looked at Leica actually, but I just wasn't sure and Leica is expensive.

The 100F came out, and it has an optical rangefinder, Fuji jpegs are really good, it has a good built in ND filter, and being fixed length 23 (35 full frame equivalent) is a 'classic' focal length. I happened to be in Australia and came across a bit of a deal and got one for $2000 nzd, with spare battery and lenshood, so I went for it.

The F is miles faster than the T, I would go F because of the speed and ISO performance, but I'm not sure I'd upgrade from the T if I already had one.

So far, I feel the F is a really good camera, it is forcing me to think differently about photography - I'm focussing on the shot and not the gear.

Great for travel and street, adequate for landscape, ok for portrait, great colours, tremendous in-camera film simulations including Acros b&w.

Would recommend.
