One of the most respected photographic review web sites has just completed their full user review on the Fuji X100 and surprise, surprise come to the same conclusions as I first reported…
DPreview “Autofocus not quite as fast and accurate as the best mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras”
The camera also scored an overall poor 73% and could only attain their SILVER AWARD so maybe the numpties who hung me out to dry and had a bitching session, at my expense, on the DPreview boards can now apologise for what was a very accurate assessment of this flawed camera.
In fact this is one reply on their Fuji X100 forum that puts it in a nutshell…
- The power of dpreview and its reviews
- The dreadful mess that Fuji seem to have made of this camera’s firmware
- The bad history Fuji have with firmware updates
Then I don’t think we need to worry about any post-nuclear-incident problems in Japan and possible consequent supply shortages, because this camera just isn’t going anywhere, fast. I would love to know how many orders have been cancelled today.
