I do not find it clunky as it is a retro so it feels comfortable like the old M4 but with EVF. The rest are very similar location if you are used to shoot with range finder. LOL
When I say clunky, I'm not talking about the exposure controls - I love the intuitive analogue controls for aperture, shutter speed, and exposure compensation (while I've never owned a Leica, I do really like my Voigtlander R4a). The review on Luminous-Landscape sums up my feelings on the interface best - it seems like after the design team finished the top and front of the camera, they got sent home and they brought in the backups to handle the rest. Specifically, I don't like:
- Only having one Fn button, and having to dig through the menu to adjust the other parameters you chose not to use with it. I use the Fn button for ISO, so if I want to activate the ND filter, I have to go through the menu. It's not a big issue, but it's still an annoyance. I would have liked a dedicated ND button on the camera (probably in place of the RAW button, it seems like it would have been so much more useful). Alternatively, Fuji could have allowed users to map multiple settings to the Fn button - tap once for ISO, tap twice for ND, for example.
- Having to shift my grip and squeeze a finger in between the back of the camera and my nose if I want to change the focus point with my eye to the viewfinder. I really would have liked the AF point selection to be one of the options for the Fn button.
- The tiny OK/Menu button in the middle of the dial isn't as bad as some make it out to be, but I do think it's a little bit of a nuisance
- Not an interface problem, but still probably firmware related: my x100 locks up on me frequently. It's easy enough to pull the battery and reset it, but this kind of problem really shouldn't happen in the first place.
- The focus-by-wire system is slow - the focus doesn't change nearly as much as it feels like it should as you turn the ring.
Despite my gripes, I still really, really like this camera... it just definitely has its quirks.
