Absolutely! great camera and sensor for low noise in this caliber.


5DMKII or 5D MK III
Enough gear for now... need to get out and shoot more.

Definitely, its not that there isn't noise, its just that its pleasant, i'm currently limiting the camera to iso1600, and its pretty decent.

Sure my 5d2 does iso 1600 slightly better, but if you aren't pushing or pulling the exposure afterwards, its hard to tell what shot came from where on noise alone.

Remember, this is a 1.6x sensor but with only like 12MP, its not filled to the brim where noise becomes an issue.

Oh dammit...why did you guys have to bump this thread again? My X100 lust was just dying down... (current thought: sell 5D2 and Sigmalux, buy 5Dc and X100). I hate you all!

Oh and by the way, from the many high-ISO images I've been looking at, the X100's performance on that front looks to be seriously impressive. Better than any APS-C camera I've used, at least.

It must have caught some sort of horrible disease from one of your FF cameras. ;)

You'd be hard pressed to get me to split up with my 5d2 for a 5d1.... Even if you threw in a x100. I was considering switching from 5d2 -> 5d1 and putting the money aside for an eventual 1ds3... Then it'd be okay.

I think its because many of the APS-C cameras just cram way too many MP nowadays.

Fun thing, i turned off the image preview, i just leave it OVF and snap away, it feels so liberating, i'll check them out when i get home, its like film all over again! Minus the dark fumbling and chemical smells i hated :D

On that there can be no disagreement. Might impressive camera image quality-wise. If they put out an "X100B" with exactly the same specs except with better AF speed my defenses might finally crumble.

Correct AF is slow on low light on the X100... But

Yeah its kinda slow, but i'm used to slow af from my 5d(1)&(2) lol.

Hell, i find the side AF points faster and more accurate!

If i focus and recompose though it does have an annoying tendency to re-af on the background, so i have to get used to actually using the side AF points.

I've had my X100 and sold it for a profit several months ago... lol

but now i'm at the point where i want to take a HUGE break from DSLR photography and get me a rangefinder type camera... so i'm def. gonna pick up a Fuji x100 as soon as they are available again....

too bad you don't live in the Bay Area - got one for sale.

Autofocus performance is lackluster when the light is low. I mainly use the camera for taking snaps at night during parties and I miss a lot of shots as the AF is sluggish. I'll be replacing it with a Panasonic G3 w/ 20mm F1.7 instead. PQ when it's right on target is pretty amazing though..

Due to the hype (and the fact I had an opportunity to get one at reasonable price), I tested one out for about a month. SOOC jpgs were good. WB I think was better than Canon. But once I got over the initial "this is cool" phase, I tested it out against the files coming out of the 7D.

My 7D's high ISO files were actually better, less noise in the shadows. I started seeing banding patterns in the x100 at 3200. I initially wanted to defend it, but then I remembered, it has an APS-C sensor for crying out loud. I think it's a 1.5x crop too not 1.6! With less pixels, hence lower pixel density.

And the straw that broke the camel's back was when the darn thing couldn't focus in indoor ambient lighting. Granted it was on the "lower" side (roughly iso1600 @ 1/60-1/100s type lighting), but the 7D had absolutely no issues whatsoever. The x100 flat out refused to lock, and I was testing this out w/ extremely high-contrast object as well.

I'm sure the x100 works well under a lot of other circumstances. But for the majority of what I've been and will be shooting, it was just retarded. $1200 and can't focus?

YMMV and will most likely vary. I'm not going to bad mouth it. It looks great. Feels great. But in the end, I need it to perform and it didn't perform *for me*. That's all.

I love it!!! because I dont compare it to my DSLR.... I take a hell of a lot more photos with it because its easy to bring along... Raw Files are ok, like my old D700 more or less.
