The X100 S/T/F cameras are the Canonet QL-17 GIII of our time.

Since I own an X-Pro 2, I should sell my X100T. But I just can't bring myself to part with it. I almost always use the OVF.

The X100 T/F PDAF is a significant improvement. Even fly-by-wire manual lens focusing is practical with the T/F bodies.

In my case, the single issue with the X100T is the rear buttons are just a bit too small. However, I rarely use them.

To be complete, it takes some time and patience to figure out how to set up an X100 so it can be used as one used the Canonet. Also, the 23/2 Fujinon lens aperture needs to be no wider than f4 to render sharp images for very close subjects.

The XE-2 with the 27/2.8 pancake lens is a viable, affordable option if you don't value using an OVF.
