Pentax ME SLR with Kiron 28-70mm f/3.5 to f/4.5 lens
Pentax Spotmatic SLR with 50mm f/1.4 8-element lens
Canon Canonet QL17 G-III rangefinder with 40mm f/1.7 lens
Contax G1 rangefinder with 21mm f/2.8, 45mm f/2, 90mm f/2.8 Zeiss lenses
Leica M6 rangefinder with 21mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, and 90mm f/2 lenses
Nikon F2 SLR with 24mm f/2, 35mm f/1.4, and 85mm f/1.4 lenses

The Leica and Nikon were my personal favorites.

During the digital age, I began scanning my film with Canon and then Epson flatbed scanners.

When I began shooting digital, I used the following digital bodies in low light situations:

Olympus micro 4/3 with 14mm f/2.5, 20mm f/1.7, and 45mm f/1.8 lenses
Fuji X-Pro1 with 16mm f/1.4, 23mm f/1.4, and 56mm f/1.2 lenses
Fuji X-Pro2 with 16mm f/1.4, 23mm f/1.4, and 56mm f/1.2 lenses
Leica M10 with 21mm f/1.4, 35mm f/1.4, and 90mm f/2 lenses

The X-Pro2 is my personal favorite.

I have never tried the Fuji X100 cameras because I prefer interchangeable lenses. However, when I mount a 23mm f/2 lens on my X-Pro2, it performs very much like the Fuji X100f.
