Fujifilm X100V vs XF23mmF2 and XF23mmF1.4 :: X100V, A Missed Opportunity :: Why X100V is better than iPhone :: More First Looks

BHphoto video – Introducing the X100V

As you probably know by now (if not, do your homework and check back the X100V live blogging ;) ), the Fujifilm X100V has a new XF23mm f/2 lens, that definitely delivers a significant improvement over the previous lens, which was designed for the 12 megapixel original X100.

Finally Fujifilm updated it. And they did a pretty damn good job.

But how does it compare to the other Fujinon 23mm lenses in Fuji’s offering, the Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 and the Fujinon XF23mm f/2?

Well, today we try to investigate this any many more question in a dedicated Fujifilm X100V roundup:

Fujifilm X100V: Silver beats Black… and Which One do You Prefer?

This Sunday I would like to investigate a crucial question.

It’s probably the questions of all questions.

The Fujifilm X100V looks better in silver or black? ;)

I have a theory I will explain later… but first the rankings.

I did take a look at the AmazonUS best selling point and shoot camera ranking, and at the time of this post, the Fujifilm X100V silver is ranked 7th, whereas the Fujifilm X100V black is ranked 23rd.

Moreover, if we look at the BHphoto X100V page, we see they mark the X100V silver as “#1 seller and the X100V black as “top seller.

But the ranking might be “drugged”, as the silver Fujifilm X100V will ship 1 month earlier than the black Fujifilm X100V. So people might have grabbed the silver one, to get it earlier.

And now my theory:

I find some Fujifilm cameras look better in silver, whereas others in black. I never knew why. But one day I got the illumination, and I found the answer.

Rangefinder styled Fujifilm cameras with optical viewfinder look better in silver (such as X100V), whereas Fujifilm cameras without optical viewfinder look better in black (such as X-E3).

Of course this is just my personal taste. But I noticed this pattern in my taste. Don’t know if it’s the same also for you.

With that said, frankly both colors look awesome on the Fujifilm X100V.

Fujifilm Removes Tatsuo Suzuki from X Photographer Program after his Controversial Street Photography Shooting Style in X100V Video

The Controversy

At the launch of the Fujifilm X100V, Fujifilm released lots of X100V promo videos, some of them made by their talented X photographers. One of those videos, though, raised a huge controversy, so much, that Fujifilm removed the video just a few hours after it went online.

However, here on FujiRumors, we shared a link where you can still find the video.

The video raised a massive debate, with currently over 730 comments in our original post. Is this a legit way to make street photography or is Tatsuo Suzuki’s style to intrusive and aggressive?

Over 4,000 people voted a survey on this subject, and you can see the results here. Spoiler: it’s an extremely divisive topic.

See the Controverisal Fujifilm X100V Promo Video Removed by Fujifilm – Offensive or Legit Street Photography?

At the launch of the Fujifilm X100V yesterday, Fujifilm published many promotional videos. Among the others the one of Tatsuo Suzuki you can see below.

It has been removed by Fujifilm, with apology for the shooting style of the photographer, that has been perceived as offensive by many in the comments, as the photographer has a rather “intrusive” style of shooting, they say. Others instead defended his shooting style as legit street photography.

But once things land on the internet, they remain there, and FujiRumors (thanks to his friends on Twitter), can provide you with the video.

I will let you debate on this. Just watch the video below, and let us know what you think.

First Win: Fujifilm X100V Looks Sexier than X100F You Say :)

For a while I thought, that it could happen.

Maybe the internet would find the the ultimate harmony and bring the perfect balance into the camera world.

In fact, the various Fujifilm X100V vs Fujifilm X100F beauty surveys, showed a 50/50 preference for each camera.

And I was hoping, that maybe it could happen, like in the “neutral response” Futurama video clip on youtube, where humanity unites since 10+ years to keep the balance between upvotes and downvotes.

But at the end, the Fujifilm X100V turned out the slight favorite in all of our surveys:

So, at least according to the FujiRumors community, Fujifilm was able to make the sexiest camera in the Fujifilm world even sexier. That’s already a nice achievement.

EXCLUSIVE: Fujifilm X100V will Cost $1,399 (plus Message to Source)

According to our sources, the Fujifilm X100V will see a slight price increase over the Fujifilm X100F.

The rumored price tag is of $1,399.

Stay on FujiRumors for the live streaming on 3PM New York time. It will all happen here, on fujirumors.com.

To the source: about the X100V weather sealing. Yes, you told me about. But when you told me, I checked with sources, and some told me that the camera alone is not weather sealed (and now I understand why). This is why I could not share, as I got conflicting reports. But thanks for pushing me to investigate this point further. I just was not fast enough to figure out the whole truth, so I didn’t share. But I consider you reliable for sure :). If you want to talk more directly, to exchange such (and much more) information in private, my email is fujirumor@gmail.com.

Fujifilm X100V is Weather Resistant if Used with Adapter Ring and Lens Filter – Full Translated X100V Brochure

Earlier today we shared the Fujifilm X100V brochure in here (we machine translated it from Japanese to English).

One aspect of the new Fujifilm X100V that passed unnoticed, but is mentioned in the catalog, is that the camera itself is not weather sealed, but if used with this adapter ring and this X100 lens filter, it becomes weather resistant.
