Review Excerpt

  • AF speed vastly improved; Increased continuous frames per second (JPEGs at 12.5fps vs 10fps in G15); Solid build and ergonomic, comfortable feel; Excellent f/1.8-2.8 5x optical zoom lens; Advanced photographic features, including PASM dial and RAW capture; Dedicated ISO button; Customizable buttons; Excellent macro mode; 1080p/60fps Full HD video.

  • LCD screen not articulated; Larger design makes it not very pocketable; Optical viewfinder not very accurate; RAW burst shooting still slow; Wi-Fi is clunky to set-up & no remote shooting capabilities; No built-in GPS.

  • Attractive, retro rangefinder-style design; Excellent still image quality; Great, sharp f/2 35mm-equivalent lens; Overall better operation than the X100S with improved controls and dials; Improved optical viewfinder coverage; Built-in Wi-Fi.

  • Low-light AF still slow and inconsistent; Video quality still compromised by moire and lack of image stabilization; Buffer depths could be better when shooting RAW.
