THE RUMOR CORRECTION
Back in February a new source shared here the following rumor about the X100S replacement (which he called X200): 24mp, tilt screen and new fixed lens. Maybe these specs were right at the time of sharing, but they are probably wrong now.
In fact, a source who was right in the past with some X-T1 specs, just told me that the X100T won’t have a tilt screen and gave me also the following specs about the lens: 23mm, 8 glass elements in 6 groups HTC-EBC coating. Sound like the same lens of the X100S.
THE HYBRID VIEWFINDER
There is no need to break out in panic ;-) .
The fact that I’ve leaked the (rumored) EVF specs of the X100T, doesn’t mean that it won’t feature also a OVF! I also never said that the X100T will be EVF only, but my fault eventually was not to insert the HVF in the rumored specs list and this might have created some uncertainty. Sorry for that, and I added it now.
The truth (ok, the rumored truth) is, that the X100T will actually feature a new, improved hybrid viewfinder. An anonymous source describes it literally so:
“expect proper electronic overlay on the next generation Fuji ovfs… the x100s and xpro1 updates will pretty much kick ass, if just because of that.”
A new source simply told me that:
- “X100T: Real-time parallax in OVF”
So don’t worry, the HVF was and will remain one of the amazing key features of the X100 and X-PRO line… and it will become even better :-).
And before the updated specs list, here is the poll suggested by FR-reader Douglas Gottlieb.
