A detailed review about “one of the more interesting compacts in recent memory” can be read at mingthein.com (click here).  They say that it’s a fast camera and lens quality is very impressive – better than the Zeiss-branded lens on the Sony RX100. “I find the image quality of this camera paradoxical. On one hand, the JPEG output is amongst the best I’ve ever seen from a compact on the other hand, the RAW files are amongst the worst I’ve ever seen from any camera, and far below even its own JPEGsThe image quality of the JPEGs is superb.”

At the end the reviewer makes also a short comparison with the biggest competitors and makes a list of the why one should buy the Fuji rather than the Panasonic LX7 and so on. Here it is:

Fuji XF1 if you are a JPEG shooter and don’t plan to do much, or any, postprocessing.
Panasonic LX7/ Leica D-Lux6 if you shoot macro, or want to try and get some depth of field control.
Sony RX100 if you want the best image quality in any compact camera available
Canon S110…I actually can’t think of any good reason to buy this – if you need GPS, perhaps.

So, if you want to have a fast, beautiful camera that shoots great images in JPEG and you don’t bother about RAW files, maybe that could be a good camera for you.
