    Always loved my X10 a few years ago until Fuji messed up the repair and had to give me a refund and I never went back. This was a shame and looking at the current range I note their are a few fixed lens cameras with very similar specs but not prices...

    The Fuji X100s, X100T and the X100.

    Just wondering what the advantages of each model are as despite reading a few reviews its hard to tell... maybe I'm missing something obvious ?

    Thanks.... thats a much more pragmatic comparison than just comparing specs etc. I have sevral "project"on my mind at present... as you may have gleaned :facepalm:

    Lots of research.... which is fun of course. I basically have 3 main cameras...the

    TZ25 for the comp and general family use. (Although they are grabbing the RX100 more now),

    RX100 as my pocketable quality camera,

    And of course my A6000

    So the RX100 will become the family and my day trip camera

    Thinking of the Fuji as a fixed lens walkabout camera and also for above

    Sony A6000 and possibly A7 eventually as the high end CSC/FF camera for enthusiast trips


    Fuji is quite expensive IMO to be fair so I will probably wait for a second hand or refurb but everything I read and see about the X100T is impressive and I am familiar with the Fuji quality from the X10 I had. Just gorgeous images. It seems a good move IMO for that middle range/use I like

    Cant say Id noticed tbh :p

    Fujis are lovely, the original X100 AF is slow in anything but good light compared to the A6000 but it has some very nice tricks up its sleeve (which applies to all the X100s), Hybrid finder is great on a sunny day, silent shutter if you need it, leaf shutter is amazing with stupid high flash synch speeds in direct sunlight, best built in flash Ive ever used, nicest built/looking CSC Ive used. Overall a very nice camera if you dont need class leading AF.

    The X100S is a good compromise imo when it comes to price, but again, AF isnt as good as A6000 (not many CSCs can keep up with that though tbf) but better than X100. Used around £400-450.

    The X100T again looks like a decent upgrade over previous so it depends on where your budget lies.

    When you consider though that the price includes a high quality camera paired with a matching small fast lens designed for the sensor you realise theyre not really expensive. Fuji cameras have a real charm, they make you feel like taking pictures ime.

    I remember that feeling of..... wanting to take pictures with it... with the X10. They do have a warm, tactile feeling about them. Very satisfying to take pictures with. Missing from most other modern cameras. The T looks a decent upgrade as you say.

    Other alternative and perhaps better than the X100T is the new X-T10 which is also very good and small with a pancake (18mm f2 or 27mm f2.8)

    Compact Camera Meter

    Body £500 new, lens around £175 used each.

    Just reading about that... of course you can leave it with either of those lenses on and have the same effect. Same Fuji image quality and that fun in taking pictures. Also the opportunity to extend the lens range..... interesting....

    23mm Prime would be perfect on it.....

    I think I'll go and have a play with both tomorrow

    Yup, both are tiny and light and have more to offer in that sense as its a system you can upgrade as you go, the XT10 looks a cracking little camera for the money. Alternatively, theres a used XT1 if you want the weather sealing and slightly larger viewfinder, but its bigger. The lenses in the Fuji system (lots of fast zooms and primes of all value) are what makes the system very strong, strongest overall mirrorless system IMO.

    If you like zooms the Wex package of XT10 plus 18-55 and 55-200 looks a great deal for £999. The 55-200 is £494 on its own.

    Strobe... I am looking at the 27mm 2.8 pancake or 35mm f1.4 and for a longer zoom the 18-135. But I'll check Wex out. Good lord theres some good lenses in the range and due to come out.... much better effort than Sony are making... and cheaper in general... including a 90mm Macro to add to the 60mm macro they already do. Have to say that looking into it the lens range for Fuji is more than impressive...

    So I'm off to LCE/Jessops and JL tomorrow to play with an X-T10... I'll also compare it with a X-T1 but they are heavier and I don't really need weather sealing

    O
    Only other main difference is the larger viewfinder and another dial, if you don't need those the xt10 is a fine choice and you save quite a lot of quids so that pays for a couple lenses.

    Lenses, yes, and trade in bonus. Basically trade in a DSLR (which you dont have) and above their trade in offer they will give you another £80.

    But trade in is only Fuji cameras I think... Jessops have that deal of X-T10, kit and 55-230 zoom for £749 which is hard to beat. Both nice lenses especially the 55-230 which really surprised me.
