I am tempted to pickup the x100f as well. I had bought the x100s used and sold it, but find myself wishing I had it for a basic grab camera again. I'm glad they are finally using the same battery as the other x series cameras now too!

Ya...Fuji is all.....right ;-)a

Downsampled to 8mp file. I seldom shoot Landscape but I'm tempted to put this one on canvas.

That's honestly the main reason I'm considering one... it would be great to be able to just have one charger and one type of battery to deal with again! I love my X100T though... for some uses I like it more than my X-Pro2.

A few more car shots...

As I told my friends over on the Sony forum, I'm planning a trip to Disney World this December with my family. It's my first time since 1988, my wife's first time ever, and we're taking our 4 and 2 year old girls as well. It's never too early to plan the trip, so I started to think of gear. Laying out my a9, 24-70 2.8, 85 1.8, and continuing to think of a 35mm option is what made me think of the x100F. I know I can buy the Sony 35 1.4 which is another heavy lens. That combined with my existing kit would make my backpack maybe 10 lbs? i could just bring the 35mm f/2.8 only to keep it light but then what's the point of having a $4,500 camera if I'm going to throw on a $500 fixed lens.

That made me think of the idea of bringing only the X100F. I'd be "forced" to shoot with a 35. In a pinch I could use the digital teleconvertor to get a 50/70. Doesn't bother me that's it jpeg only, right now I'm shooting raw + jpeg but I simply don't have the time to sit down and process Raw files anymore. I've processed maybe 8 in the past year, so I'm mostly sharing jpegs anyways.

Having just a light weight, carry around my neck 35mm might free me up. I read an article on fstoppers the other day about a photographer whose so caught up in photography that it takes away from family enjoyment. I'm starting to feel that way sometimes too. I'm so caught up in gear and trying to capture pictures of my kids sometimes that I'm more focused on the shot then of them. I took a day trip up to Newport RI and had many wonderful shots, I could tell you which lens I used, which focal length I shot it at, which setting I used, but I can't remember what I ate, where we visited, or what else I did that day.

I know that using only a x100F might limit me at times when I wished for something wider or longer. But I do suffer from analYsis paralysis sometimes when I'm overthinking it and I either overpack or stand there and try and think of which lens to use. Forcing myself to be similar might be just what I need.

just joined the club!!

xt2 with 23 f2 on its way!!

plus grip..

28-35mm is my favorite all around focal range .. so we'll see how this works out


hoping its the unicorn I've been chasing... my weather sealed , rugged , do it all , travel, vacation, portrait , street shooter,
between its stills and video capabilities , seems like compromises in all the right places for my preferencese so .... should be about right .. but so many cameras do seem so right on paper . but no other way to find out then to get one;-)a

l

Did you get your a7sii sold then?

Good luck with that! Finding that ever elusive camera is a search that I'll always be on. So much so that I'm considering adding an x100F to my stable, lol.

As I said in the sony thread I reckon you will really like it, it's a great camera

Pretty hard to go wrong with an X100f. Small, light, unobtrusive and folks are more comfortable being photographed by a little camera. Great companion to a system camera--by itself when you want to go light, or pull it out for a quick shot if you have the wrong lens on your main camera.

Just get it before the trip and use it so you are comfortable with how it works.

If you only use jpegs, you will love Fuji. Much better right out of the camera, especially for skin tones.


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

If I was being facetious I'd say: Arguably, what's the point of having a $4,500 camera if you're not even going to take it or process the RAWs?

The X100F is small, the real benefit of it on a trip like that.
Forcing yourself to use only one angle can be a great experience, no messing about with changing primes or carrying big zooms about. Nothing else to think about but the moment.

I love using my XF18mm F/2 for day to day stuff and very often don't bother bringing out another lens at all. I love it because it is small and wide. You might be surprised how well you get on with one lens & I'm sure there will be times that you'd wish for a longer lens but if you are staying close[Ish] to your family 35mm is a good reach. Anyway even if you crop in from 24Mpx to 12Mpx - still loads of detail there.

My two little friends, came over to say hello every morning as I walked down to the baker to buy fresh croissants for breakfast. Lovely things.

No ... no interest has been shown in it here or on FM ... ebay is next..but not till I try the Fuji and decide if its a keeper

i'm trying to see if I can hold on to it.. but its hard to justify keeping it ,,, to myself of course
its low light abilities are so impressive .. but i'm not needing iso 12,800 and up on a regular basis anymore ..

lets say it turns out Fuji is the way to go for me.. well I want the 56 1.2 and the 16-55 2.8 right away... those 2= ~$2500 give or take a couple

id like to think that worse case on ebay I could get $1700 for the a7sii after ebay and paypal take their cuts ..

well I've tried every camera maker that I'm interested in Canon, Panasonic , and Sony and I always had a curiousity about Fuji.. but it was the last ..because I think for me it wasn't until the xt2 that it became more appealing but at about that time I was still testing the sony waters..

from its spec list .. it seems like a good candidate for me , but only hands on experience will tell

Good question, which is why I'm looking forward to seeing if the X100F will work for me. I shoot RAW + JPEG for all my shots and having dual card slots means I can quickly import photos to my iPad. I like having the assurance of having the raw files but I haven't had the chance to touch them. But like most things the more and more files I add to it, the more backlog I have of files to process.

To be honest the a9 might be overkill for my needs, just it's the only Sony out that has the features that I am looking for (dual card slots, joystick, killer AF). I don't need the 20FPS or the other standout features of it. The two missing features from the X-T2 to me are the Touch screen (not A deal breaker) and the IBIS.

I could conceivably dump the a9 and 24-70 and refit myself with a x100f, X-T2 package that's on B&H (body, booster grip, 18-55, 35 f2) and still come out ahead.

I read through the last 30-40'pages of this thread and it seemed like at one point you seemed to be in the process of returning it. What changed that made you decide to keep it?

Yeah I pre-ordered it and the day it arrived tried it out and felt that the AF was the same as the x100T (the af was the only thing I disliked about the T) so I returned it the very next day. In hindsight I didn't give it anywhere near enough of a try. I re-purchased and realised it's actually awesome and a big improvement over the T I owned and now I can't recommend it enough to people.
