    Hi Guys .:smile:
    After resisting my temptation for a long , I finally bought X100 from an other forum member two weeks ago ,but my busy schedule didnt allow me to test the camera. Today was a bright sunny day and I decided to test this little sweet and sexy camera but hold on..Where is the camera ?As we planned a visit to the city , my 7 year old daughter stole in and hid it in her bag . I manage to catch little thief with the stolen X100 - shot with OMD + Oly 45 mm 1.8 and below are some shots taken by the thief with stolen X100..

    Thief with X100- Look at the smile :smile:

    Nice shots :smile:
    But weren't you the one saying something along the lines that you couldn't figure out why someone would a non-interchangeable lens camera when "MFT was so much better"..? :wink:

    Hahaaah Very sharp memory I would say. I bought this for my daughter . She was using EPL2 which I gave to my nephew . I wanted something where changing lenses wasnt an option . So I picked up this one . I had issues with AF earlier but now it focuses quite fast . I would never ever sell OMD and my fav MFT lenses for anything.

    Understandable theft, that X100 is a very alluring camera - I could only bring myself to sell mine by getting the X-E1 to replace it :tongue:

    Hi ..I knew this would come up and I am prepared :smile: Its a fantastic little light weight and beautifully built camera. I wish Olympus and panasonic should learn from Fuji how to built high quality cameras and set themselves apart from the crowd. Its a classy camera. Now I did handle this camera when It came out and AF was quite slow but after the latest firmware update , I would say its equal to Panasonic 20 mm on OMD which is not bad . The best thing is when camera focuses , it focuses really well. IQ is exellent and almost equal to OMD . My pleasant discovery is that it also takes crisp and clean videos though Fuji is often criticised in media for bad videos. There are no manual controls for video as such . Over all its pleasant unobstructive camera for street shoots and carry around camera. I will keep it for my daughter and will use it when I dont wanna take 2-3 lenses for street shooting . Actually it worked very well as I took OLy with 45 mm and this camera gave me what I would expect from 17 mm lens .If any further questions , I am happy to anwer.I would post a video showing how it focuses. One thing I must admit that Fuji pics offer a distinct look and character which no other camera provides. Now along with Olympus , I like Fuji colors as well.
