Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Focus

Focus:
"I think I could compensate for some of the issues if I used dynamic range ... took multiple shots of important images so I could not miss a good focus lock ..l. shot in RAW so I could recover shadow detail and perhaps prevent color shift with highlight areas ... etc."
_
"Lens needs internal focusing - It's annoying to have the lens focus louder than the shutter."
_
"So with the X100S, you will gain (a slow) autofocus and a faster lens."
_
"Autofocus:Its not terrible."
_
"Ive learned to work with its quirky focus and have actually learned to love the camera with its focus as a primary reason, and not to spite it."
_
"My $50 speed lights can overpower the sun, but this leads to a few operational quirks with the hybrid viewfinderAs I mentioned before, I like the hybrid viewfinder and I love the manual focus on this camera, but the manual focus features need the evf to work."

_
"Several files Lightroom flagged as corrupt or damaged image files."
_
"Sometimes it indicated it has locked focus ... but I didn't discover until I had downloaded the images that it simply missed and the subject I focused on was blurred."
_
"The images are nothing short of perfect, but because of its beastly nature they don't always come out as planned or because of lack of planning."
_
"I needed a reliable, easy to use camera that can produce quality images without the bulk and weight."
_
"Fantastic image quality as well."
_
"An excellent camera with stunning image output."
_
"Sharp image, great colors, even better b&w."

Lens

Lens:
"Fitting full frame into such a small package meant compromises, including a large protruding lens."
_
"Lens needs internal focusing - It's annoying to have the lens focus louder than the shutter."
_
"Love the challenge of the fixed lens."
_
"So with the X100S, you will gain (a slow) autofocus and a faster lens."
_
"Easily a match for high end canon lenses (on par with some L lenses Ive owned).For me, it seems a bit small but Im used to DSLRs with battery grips attached."
_
"I also have a 3rd party lens shade as well."
_
"With adapter ring and UV filter attached the lens cap no longer fits well (fits loosely even without these).In the end I found myself not even using the optical viewfinder."
_
"The lens length is great for travel photography and shooting in close quarters."
_
"As an aside, I almost never zoom on the iPhone, though I see a lot of people doing so...The X100s gives me is a very familiar FOV, but much higher quality, higher sensitivity, a beautiful lens and in a package that doesn't weigh me down."

Light

Light:
"The auto-focus time is decent (Canon has the edge here) and works well even in low light."
_
"The Fuji X100S AF works like a charm in good light, and no worse than most other cameras in low light."
_
"Optical viewfinder, especially in day or with good light.3."
_
"Also, studio strobes with model lights would alleviate these issues as well."
_
"Mostly family photos, mind, but I'm frequently impressed by the image making machine that the iPhone has become, given adequate light."

Photography

Photography:
"I would not recommend the camera for sports photography or action shots."
_
"TLDR: A not so amateur camera, very quirky, very adorable, if you are looking for a small setup for inconspicuous photography and you really know what you are doing, beware, this might be the camera you are looking for."
_
"Although I'm not a professional but I do value good photography and want my gear to be simple yet powerful."
_
"The lens length is great for travel photography and shooting in close quarters."
_
"But, it's best for general photography, casual pictures of people and groups of people."
_
"It's great for travel, landscapes and general outdoor photography."
_
"It feels so perfect in your hands and it is stunning when it comes to Bokeh photography."
