Review Excerpt

  • Compact camera body; Impressive optical performance; Very good JPEG image quality; Good high ISO performance; Film Simulation modes; Tilting touchscreen display.

  • Inconsistent AF performance; Clunky menus; Shallow buffer depth; Poor video quality; No built-in viewfinder like X100-series.

  • Excellent image quality from both JPEGs and RAW files; Superb high ISO performance; Very fast hybrid AF; Robust weather sealing; Dual UHS-II card slots; 4K video.

  • Precise manual focus is tricky with fly-by-wire focusing; Battery life is only decent; Video quality still not on par with competing cameras.
