I'm only now realizing that this camera has no video function! Together with the fixed lens, I think this is very brave of Fuji to do: make a specialized tool for niche customers, instead of trying to please everybody.
Got it today.
It is indeed beautiful to hold and behold.
And impressively, it offers image quality and low-light quality which challenges those of cameras costing and weighing twice or thrice as much as the Fujifilm X100. Quite a feat.
I knew that sooner or later somebody would make a camera like this.
It is not quite pocket-sized, but it has a very nice size for good operating usability. And it doesn't weigh as much as one might expect from a metal camera, which is really nice. It's only 440 grams, good travel camera.
The optical viewfinder is great, the best I've ever worked with by far, and I'm looking forward to using it a lot more.
So people can see how the camera delivers at F:2.0 and 1000 ISO, here is the original (only a slight crop). Noiseless.
