Fuji XT10 – first thoughts of a X100s user

I’ve decided to sell my x100s and upgrade to the XT10 to take advantage of Fuji’s interchangeable lenses. Having used the x100s I was hoping for a similar experience, but what I got was a whole lot more. The XT10 is smaller in the hands than the XT1, with the main differences being the weather sealing, card slot position and buffer capacity, and no dedicated ISO dial. The XT10 is 90% for 60% of the cost. The menus are clear and very similar to the X100s. The focussing advantages of the XT10 are numerous – zone focusing, single point and wide. I’m sure these would be available on the x100s however there are grave doubts that Fuji will ever update the x100s software again – they could though. The camera is easy in the hands, small but workable, simple to use & all buttons are programable to your taste. I got mine with the 16-55 F2.8-4 OIS lens – what a cracker. Here’s some simple images as a taste. So far after a few days I’m super impressed. The files, usability – all great. I’m starting to understand why many people are starting to choose these smaller systems rather than the larger DSLRs. All shot raw and edited in Lightroom. Click on any image for a larger view.
