Detailed review
It is a beautiful camera to look at, hold and use. Traditional simple layout with a numbered dial for shutter speeds and apertures. I had the X100 and many things have been improved in the update. I am not a fan of the X-tran sensor as I am getting strange artefacts sometimes in fine details. The main reason I got rid of the camera after just one week, was the auto focus. On two cameras I had ( I returned one because I thought it was faulty) I found it very annoying when photographing distant scenes the camera would start in focus, rake through its focus range to out of focus and the return to focus and take the shot. It does this on both single and continuous focus.
