Criteria Comments Rating
  • Image quality Terrific image quality. Great in low light. great!
  • Video quality No comments
  • Battery life Needs a bigger Barrera. Probably 300 shots and I use the viewfinder more than the back screen. so-so
  • Design and form factor No comments good
  • Durability No comments good
  • Speed (start-up time, lag) Very fast,but Not Nikon d4 fast, more around the Nikon d7000. good
  • Ease of use Not for amateurs. It has auto functions but defeats the purpose of this sort of camera. And if you shoot all auto, you shouldn't be looking at this camera. so-so
Detailed review
Sorry, no detailed review here. But if you are an enthusiast that wants a smaller form factor, but dslr quality and control- this is the best camera. The Sony nex 6 is great too. But as far as image quality, the Fuji wins.

Don't get this for video. If you want to shoot video and have decent photos, the Sony nex 5r and 6 are great and you won't regret it. But if you want superb images, buy this. Just google x100s review. Look for zack arias review. It's hyperbole, but not by a lot.
