Review Excerpt

  • Rugged construction; 51-point AF system capable of sophisticated AF tracking; Large, bright optical viewfinder; 7 fps JPEG or 12-bit RAW burst mode; HD Video capture.

  • 14-bit RAW mode slows continuous shooting from 7 fps to 2.7 fps; Somewhat slow AF for a camera at this level, especially in 51-point auto-area mode; Video capture tops out at 720p24.

  • 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.
