Summary: Overall I have owned just about every really good pro-sumer camera out there in recent times. Presently own the Pentax K-5, Nikon D-7000, Sony Nex 5n..Canon S95. Well besides going broke buying all these cameras :) just wanted to say by FAR my STANDOUT camera and the one I use most is this Fuji X100 for overall amazing picture quality. At the end of the day when you are done fiddling around with settings, playing with dials..whatever, the X100 is an overall standout as it's pictures are for the most apart AMAZING.
Particularly it's color accuracy and VERY low noise at all isos puts it ahead of most cameras out there. I wish it could zoom..obviously I knew it had a fixed lens...which happens to be GREAT. Just sometimes I find myself at an Arboretum or somewhere whee I just wish I could get closer to my subject be it a swan in the water...geese on a lawn..etc etc. You can use your FEET to zoom but try doing that in a lake haha. Other than the fixed lens, this camera is just wonderful THOUGH not rocket fast for sports etc. For portrait photography, landscapes, nature, even buildings his X100 is very hard to beat. It's build quality is both beautiful and it's also built like a tank. It has a built in distance scale and if you use it, you rarely can can a picture that is not in focus. I have generally had nothing but positive issues with it's focus ability. Yes manual focus is just not so great on it however. To sum up..if you are after beautiful creamy color accurate type photos (produces SKIN TONES best I ever saw)..you jut have to try the X100, to me it's in a class all by itself..HIGHLY recommended!!
