The X100s is already available in Japan. So here are some first impressions about the new Fuji-gem from the country of the rising sun! Ian posted on Google+ his considerations (click here).
“[..] ISO 2000 looks great, and I do find I need it a bit. It’s better than the D90. And it isn’t a noise factor, it is dynamic range. Past 1000-1250 the D90 files looked sickly and unnatural even when properly exposed.[…] Other thoughts, the manual focus ring still has the fly-by-wire limitations. It is nowhere as responsive as a direct coupled lens. […] The AF-C mode on the other hand has impressed me so far. For keeping the focus on a moving child’s eye, it works as well as a DSLR. […] Oh, one piece of bad news, I have managed to freeze the camera once. I had to take the battery out to solve the problem.”
At the end Ian says you’re free to ask him questions. So, just visit his site here, read his first impressions, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask him.
