Fujifilm XE1 mounted with Leica Summicron 35mm. All images where processed in Lightroom 4.4.
I received many emails about comparing my Ricoh GR with my Fuji X100 + WCL-X100 wide-angle converter mounted. The converter turns the 35mm Fuji lens equivalent to approximately 28mm, like Ricoh´s fixed lens. I was curious myself so I had the converter for 30 minutes and went out to take some snaps.
I use my ColorChecker mostly for catalogue shooting when precise color management is necessary. Today been a sunny day and I was curious to compare white balance (WB) and colors of my Fuji X100.
Dingelsdorf is located about 11 km away from the historic town of Konstanz. The thousand year old fishing and farming village is situated on the southern shore of Lake Überlingen. Dingelsdorf is a small and very cozy holiday resort, which is suitable especially for families and those seeking relaxation. Dingelsdorf is a good starting point for your activities when exploring Lake Constance.
This is not a comparison, more a real life usage of the X100 and its successor. I just want to show the different jpg rendering and both camera´s have its own look. As far as the image quality I wouldn´t say, the X100T is better (only in high ISO above 3200). But when it comes to ease of use the X100T is much more responsive, quicker and configurable. AF locks precisely, especially in low light. In good light condition the X100 is almost on par.
Yes, I like the APS-C 16MP X-Trans CMOS sensor in the X-Pro1 and the newer generation in the X-E2. But there is something magic to the look of the 12MP Bayer sensor. JPG´s look less digital (more "organic") and especially less "waxy" than on the X-100S or X-E2. RAW is also fantastic for my taste, which ends up to be a personal choice, regardless of MP or sensor. Now I am excited to see how the IQ of the X-100T will look compared to its precessor.
