For those of us that were fortunate enough to own a Fuji X100 you know what a love hate relationship with one is. It offered exceptional image quality with the quirks of a focus system that left a lot to be desired. The X100s has overcome many of the X100 faults and raised the bar.
On the exterior little has changed with the exception of a new “Q” or quick menu button and rearrangement of a few function locations. The good news is that your X100 accessories will work with the X100s and the “menu/OK” button is now raised and much easier to press.
Under the hood the X100s is a beast. Lightning fast autofocus and very responsive manual focus now compliment the exceptional lens and image quality that is Fuji’s secret sauce. Gone are the quirks that plagued the SD card read and write time as well. Start up time has been dramatically improved.
I like taking pictures and not spending hours in front of a computer editing and tweaking them. In my opinion in this day and age most if not all cameras should output good JPEG files. Sadly this is not the case but the X100S does. It even offers in camera RAW processing if you are inclined to shooting RAW.
