Default I love my new X100t

After a lot of soul searching I purchase a X100t. It meets my needs with it's compact stature and fast 23/2.0 (35mm equivalent) lens. I went back and forth because I wanted something a bit newer in the Fujifilm line-up, but settled on a black X100t and I couldn't be happier.

In a few years I may add a XPro2 or XT2 w/ 23/2.0, 35/2.0 lenses, but I couldn't be more than satisfied with what I have now and have been shooting whenever I have a spare moment.

Congratulations, Mike. Good choice! I've bought one a year ago and now it is my most used camera. I'm still very happy with it.
It needs a bit of getting used to. I used to press buttons and change settings accidentally, especially the white balance. But once you get used to holding the camera, that's over.

I agree andrejan, it's a good one. I found basic operation is intuitive. Been experimenting w/ different film settings and custom settings. It's lighter than I thought it would be, made of magnesium instead of brass like the old rangefinders. Glass is very good too.

I'm used to a DSLR, so it is indeed very light. I've added an Arca Swiss plate with grip. (without the vertical grip). It adds just enough weight and size to improve the grip and keep the camera stable with my big hands.

Fujifilm X100T X100S & X100 Grip and Arca-Swiss Plate - Black

x100t is a good choice and a really nice camera. Hope it suits your needs, gets you shooting, and you drop by with your experiences and captures. New hobby, new interest, new experiences.

I've begun posting pix Mr Pickles. Hobby is not new, but my old digital P&S wasn't cutting it anymore. Been enjoying the quality of the photos thus far.
