I preordered the day it was available from amazon. I'm anticipating this camera more than my 5DmkIII.

I recently bought a Sony RX1. My wife been using it since. She likes it alot, due IQ and size.

Fuji X100s, seems to have ISO sensitivity up 25000, which is equal to FF Sony RX1. I just wonder how the IQ looks at ISO3200 in lower light? RX1 performs very well under low ligh @ ISO6400.

Also, Fuji X100s AF speed seems to be faster Sony RX1 as well .08 Vs .15 compared to RX1.

This will be great for travel. I might get one for myself if the wife decides keeping the RX1.

Are there any Canon shooters be interested in Fuji X100s? Did anybody place a pre-order yet?  ;)

Yes to the first question, no to the second.  I have a T2i and 5D3 with a myriad of lenses from super wide to telephoto but part of me dreams of selling it all and going with the X100s just to simplify things.  I'm serious.  DSLRs take great photos, don't get me wrong, they just seem overly big and heavy for what they do.  I just want amazing photos - I don't want or need the bulk that goes with it.  I suppose this may be the wrong website to profess such a thing but I don't care.   :D  Maybe I'll try using both the 5D3 and X100s for a while and see which one gets used more often.

The RX1 would've been perfect if it was more like a RangeFinder
The X100s would've been perfect if it had the RX1's sensor size

@ISO800, x20 looks good to me. Look forward to see x100s performs at ISO3200 & 6400 in low light. :o

What about the fixed 35 mm equiv focal length? I'm not sure about it. What do you think?

Prior my purchase of RX1, I thought 50mm would be a great fixed lens.

After taking over 1k photos with RX1, I will take 35mm fixed over 50mm fixed compact camera anydays ;)

Here are some pics from RX1. 35mm. Shooting distance was around 3'- 4' from camera to subject(s).

Great pics!
I'll try shooting only at 35 mm equiv with my 60D and see how it works for me.
Thanks!

With DSLR(5D III in my case), I found shooting 35mm is a bit harder than P&S size camera.

With RX1, I now can capture my kids at difficult angles. Standing 4-6' away from the subject(s), I can bring the RX1 closer(for wider shot) or further out(more reach) without taking a step :)

I bought a X100. Never again. As an engineer I can usually tell the abilities of the engineers of a product. In this case they aren't good software engineers, the firmware is goofed and has odd layout. The design seems to be done by engineers and not people who focus on design. Too easy to goof the settings on the camera, too many buttons, too hard to get it to do what you want. I still haven't figured out how to turn off flash. Speaking of which, I bought a Fuji external flash which has all sorts of poor design decisions. Basically they are guys that come up with a killer idea or two (such as the viewfinder display and no Bayer pattern), and wrap a poor camera around that.

Canon's engineers on the other hand are much better. Their problem is extreme conservatism, they eke out innovation way to slowly, because they're obviously fearful of their installed base and reputation.

Yes...but not all, some pictures were boosted around 5-10.
