Fujifilm X100T

Originally reviewed by TrustedReviews 20 November 2014

Key features:

  • Fast, all purpose 23mm f/2 lens
  • Outstanding hybrid EVF
  • Excellent image quality

Who's it for? Professional street photographers and rangefinder lovers – a niche camera but a hugely impressive one with a clever hybrid viewfinder.

The Fujifilm X100T is a great-looking camera, packed to the rafters with retro charm. It’s not all style over substance though. With its magnesium alloy frame and tough, leather-texture finish, it feels like it’s built to last – if you take good care of it, this could serve you for a good many years. At 127 x 74 x 52mm, it’s not exactly pocket-friendly but the quality of the photos it captures can give high-end DSLRs a run for their money. The all-purpose 35mm lens is fast too, and offers very pleasant bokeh. However, it’s prone to flare, so it’s worth investing in a lens hood. Video capture is disappointing.

USB charging and Wi-Fi connectivity are offered as standard, with NFC a notable omission. The 3-inch, non-touchscreen display is decent but is blown out of the water by the excellent hybrid viewfinder. The camera’s manual controls deliver a satisfyingly ‘dirty’ feel too, and will help you develop as a photographer.

Price: £999

to many camera's... the nikon d4s is not a posers camera. its basically a photo journalist tool used to shoot the sports section and its normally owned by the publication not the user... the fujifilm x series on the other hand is made for posers (its also crap build quality disguised as a premium product) not that they will ever admit it

as for a beginners dslr the canon eos 100d (rebel SL1) is not a very good choice considering its not really available new (not in my part of the world) the eos rebel T6s (760d) is normally cheaper from most online retailers

Disagreed completely with your judgement. I have been using Nikon DSLR for years, including the famous FM, F301, F801s and recently the D7000. I purchased the Fujifilm X100s a year ago, and saying they are crap build quality borders on ignorance. It is actually well-built and gives stunning pictures. It is the camera I carry with me all the time and I am very satisfied with the way it feels ad the pics are really great. In any case, the gear does not make the photographer.

the crap build quality comment is directed at fujifilm not nikon, and is based on return merchandise authorisations

You listed cameras from 2013. Are you saying they are still the best? You list the sony a7II, what about the sony a7r2?
