I’ve announced it 2 days ago. This week could be an interesting “review-week”. We started yesterday with the first impressions of the X20 and X100s at riflessifotografici, and you should not miss the X-pert corner this Friday, with the X100s vs X100 article of Rico Pfirstinger (in the meantime check his Flickr set here).
This time two Spanish magazines tested the X20 and X100s, Dslrmagazine and quesabesde.
2) Quesabesde compared the performance of the X10, X20 and RX100. Click here (translated version). Can the X20 really compete with the Sony RX100? Now we know, the X20 is faster than the X10. Especially in low light conditions you’ll notice the faster AF-performance. The image quality is outstanding for an advanced compact camera. Of course the X20 beats the X10 also in terms of image resolution, details, ISO performance and more, but can the X20 really match the RX100? This comparison shows that the RX100 (with 20.2 MP and 1″ sensor) beats the X20 (with 12MP and 2/3″ X-Trans sensor). But Fuji did an “excellent work“, making it one of the “most desirable compact cameras“. At quesabesde you can also download the RAW files of the sample shots!
IMHO, the missing viewfinder on the RX100 is already reason enough to go for the X20. But I’m sure some of you would go for the RX100 (bigger sensor in smaller camera)… so feel free to add your own PROS and CONS (X20 vs RX100) in the comments and vote this poll:
