Impressive capture...if Fuji can get the XE1 PDAF like the X100s and bring the AF up to the level of the X100s I would consider buying into that system. The files on both cameras look impressive!
5D Mark III, Canon 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye, Canon 17mm f/4L TS-E, Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L II, 21mm f/2.8 Zeiss, Sigma 35mm f/1.4, 24-70mm f/2.8 II, 50mm f/1.4 Sigma, 85mm f/1.2L, 100mm f/2.8L Macro,70-200mm f/2.8L IS II...1.4x converter III, and some other stuff.....

Impressive. Fuji always had good color since fuji-chrome & Velvia days.

Too bad I'd probably get a g15 before a X100s. :|

My wife took my RX1. I might get x100s for travel.

LOL, it's rated higher than your 5D MK3 :)
Pity it's no good for street photography or I might have jumped.
The x100s seems like a better alternative now that LR 4.4 has the sensor worked out.

ET

I doubt it will out perform RX1 in higher ISO, regardless, how good the new sensor might be :)

If the x100s is good at 3200ISO under low light, I'll get one.

But the X100s and it's AF, hybrid VF and colors~
If I didn't have the Siggy 35 on my 5DII then the X100s would very quickly find a new owner, although the split image MF mode and all the above is awesome it'd be far more useful with an interchangeable lens version, legacy lenses with digital split image focusing?? Would be awesome!

I could live with a fixed 35mm but, I'd probably buy a small Hot-shoe'd camera for strobist stuff. The X100S is 1299$ and with speedlites I'd be shooting HSS @ ISO 100-400. Why pay that? I'd could get the same from a G15 plus a zoom lens for traveling around.

It's nice, but It wouldn't fit into my system well. The size is good, Price is good, IQ is excellent, but just not for me.

Doesn't Fuji support 1/4000s effective sync speed because it has a leaf shutter? I'd say that this feature alone would make it ideal especially for Strobist stuff...

Definetely interesting camera. Liked the design from the 100,heard about the good IQ and the quirky interface.
Good thing they listened to their customers, this time I think I will buy it.

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

I just preordered mine after reading the glowing reviews from David Hobby and others.  I can't wait.

I ordered through B&H, but I'm curious to know when your order ships since you ordered much earlier.  I wonder what stock will be like?

As I was attending a recent trade show and deciding what new gear to try out, I had a chance to play a little with the X20.
It feels good in the hand, seems reasonably responsive in many ways but I still didnt' get the impression the AF was super fast.  Faster than many for sure.

OTOH, the user interface would take more time for me to get used to compared to Canon, Nikon, Pentax.  Not a bad thing, just another learning curve.
But then.. The XE-1 started to really appeal to me more.  Just as that was settling onto my future-considerations list, I see rumor that Fuji may introduce an entry-level X-mount.

Good thing I'm waiting anyway. :)

Has anyone compared the x20 to the canon Gxx -  whatever it is now?

There is a good review too at: http://learningcameras.com/reviews/9-other/137-fuji-x100s-review

You need to download the RAW files from there and take a look at the 6400 ISO shots. They are amazing!
Looks like the video review is on youtube as well:

There are a number of parallel posts covering this excellent piece of hardware (I like it) -

http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=13278.0

http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=12200.0

Maybe the mods could merge these for conciseness ...

@ dswatson83 - I like your reviews alot, very informative. Please keep it going ;)

I have to disagree with you about X100S in low light @ ISO6400. At ISO6400 on x100s in low light, the noise looks like ISO16,000 - ISO20,000 to my 5D III and RX1.

I do like the IQ, AF speed and retro looks of X100s. ;)

Am I missing something or the Fuji X100S Image quality is on pair with full frame cameras regarding high ISO performance, despite the fact that is using an APS-C sensor.....

This camera is really that good?.... in real life situations?
