This new ‘F’ model has a 35mm f/2.0 lens, an ‘advanced hybrid viewfinder’ similar to what you see on the X-Pro2. It is an optical rangefinder-style peephole with up to 6x magnification and digital overlays for extra information about your shot—things like focus peaking and exposure settings. It gives the same hybrid hybrid phase- and contrast-detection autofocus system as the X-T20.
Around the back, the Fujifilm X100F gets a significant design over the previous version (the FujiFilm X100T) it replaces. Company moved most the buttons to the right of the 3-inch LCD display to make it easier to access all of your settings with right thumb.
There are a few other improvments, including a new film mode, but those are the key points. The new Fujifilm X100F looks to be the most significant overhaul of the X100 series since its inception, great performance, and improving on handling, as well as image quality.
There aren’t a lot of changes, but the few enhancements are very important. They’re include
- Improved performance, including an update to the faster and wider-coverage version of the autofocus system that is in the X-T2
- An upgraded sensor to the same 24.3-megapixel X-Trans III CMOS that is in the X-Pro2 and X-T2
- Design enhancements, such as streamlining the controls on the back of the camera, and integrating the ISO sensitivity settings into the shutter-speed dial and a higher-resolution display
That price is $1,300, and it is slated to ship in the US in February 2017. I do not have regional availability, but given consistent launch pricing for the series, I’m guessing it will be £999 and AU$1,750; directly converted from US price, though, that’s £1,060 and AU$1,730 at the current exchange rates.
