  • 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.
