I picked up the Fuji Film x100 a few months ago.  I was lucky to get it pretty early on and I have gotten a lot of comments, emails and questions about it.  No camera in recent history splashed onto the market with so much fanfare, excitement, buzz and controversy.    People seem to either love it or hate it but regardless there is still a waiting list to get it.

My view:  I like it.

I got it as I wanted something light and compact that I could carry when I didn’t feel like dragging along my Canon 5DMKII or my Leica.  I wanted something that was for easy, quick shooting when I am out with my family.   I also wanted to be able to capture a lot of the foods in Tokyo and as I travel and my M9 with a minimal focusing distance of 2-3 feet couldn’t do what I wanted.  It has met everything I was looking for it to do.   It’s compact and light yet still lets me shoot RAW, control aperture, shutter speed and ISO.  It feels a bit like a rangefinder the way it is configured so it is an easy transition for me from my Leica M9.   The styling of the camera is just excellent… I love the retro look they produced.

As I said, the look of the camera of just great.  What matters to all of us is what type of pictures can it take.  I will forego my usual commentary between photos so you can focus on the photos themselves.    Feel free to hover over the photo if you are looking for some additional information on the image.   I haven’t really even pushed the limits of this camera yet but here is 100 shots at with the x100…
