What comes after the X100T?

What comes after the X100T?

First off: I love my X100. It actually got me back into photography in 2011. I've since been shooting an XPro, XE1 and currently a pair of XT1's, but I still keep grabbing the X100 when it's not an assignment.

I'm considering upgrading to a newer model in the same series... I was just wondering: is there any news or rumors regarding the X100T's follow-up? Will there be an X100...U? Or will the T be the last of the line?

The main reason I'm asking is that the X100T looks like a fantastic camera, but it has been out for a while and I'm not in a hurry. I would like to buy the WCL-X100 as well. If a similar follow-up camera is likely, I could already buy the wide-angle converter, be happy with that and shoot until a new version comes along. If however the X100T is likely to be the last of the line (that the converter would fit) I'd probably buy an X100T and the WCL-X100 right now.

Either way i'll be happy shooting with the X100(#) but if there's any news out there it would help me make an informed decision. Thanks in advance!

Jonas




PS. Also considering changing one of the XT1's for an XPro2.. but that's another story :-)

X200 rumored suffice about 2-4 weeks ago. Does not appear to be the same 35f2 instead rumor of a 28f2 instead like the x70, but w/ ovf/Evf design.

Personally, I was hoping for a 40 or 50 fov design. Since the 27 pancake came out, I've been using this in preference to the x100 anyway.. 40ish fov, since 40ish fov is my prefered.

Anyway all just rumors..

Thanks for the response & sorry for my late answer.

I went ahead and bought the WCL-X100, I might see if I can find a good deal on a used X100S or X100T so I could have the same sensor in all my cameras (a pair of XT1's), I find that makes post-production so much less of a hassle.

No point in waiting for a nonexistent camera!

I'm interested to see if Fuji offers the X100T successor this fall. A while back, I read that it may be a 28mm lens, which I would have no interest in. If it were 35mm, it could be of interest. I'm also looking to see if Leica comes out with a Q at 35, 40, or 50. For me, 28mm simply does not work.

X100F if they stay consistent. X100, X100S (second), X100T (third), X100F (fourth).

Huh, I had never thought of this... is this accurate? Another popular name is the X200.

How very anglocentric! With all the retroisms on the X series, I would guess that the sequence would be from Latin or Greek, like old Nikkors. So X100Q.

I recommend going straight for the T. I think updates are worth it. (wifi, better af and mf, more aperture stops, more exposure compensation options, the little extra evf window in the OVF.. love that thing for manual focusing)

I don't see much to improve as far as image quality goes.
I love my X100T just the way it is!

maybe the new 24mp sensor with more/wider PDAF coverage..but, more MP's = smaller photosites and possibly higher noise past 3200...but offers more detail recorded.. a trade off for many

maybe a larger buffer (we all complain about buffer size, don't we?)

I just don't see this playing out when using the X-Pro2.

How about an X100M with a medium format sensor?

Besides that pipe dream I'm sure the new 24MP x-trans sensor is certainty. Perhaps at Photokina?

After falling back in love with the X100T, I'm excited to see what is next for this camera. I'm thinking it'll be the same camera with X-Pro2 like upgrades.

I believe it would be Uncanny X100 or Ultimate X100.

Oh wait...I was thinking of the X-Men. :-)

I love the lens on the X100 series. Leave that as-is, maybe add some WR touches and the sensor from the 2.

You forgot to add the X100F (fifth), X100S (sixth), X100S (seventh)... Confusing?

Personally, I hope Fuji relaunch it properly with many changes, including:

1. 23mm/1.7 or 1.8 lens, with better close-up quality than the current lens, and more micro-contrast.
2. The sensor from the X-Pro2, including the processor and all the image processing.
3. Weather sealing.
4. A new, bigger, better battery.

That's it!

Maybe it will be a 28mm f2 actual (42mm equiv).
Not a big shift in FL but, it would add a new twist to the product offering.
I would take a fixed 35mm f2 for a 50mm equiv in a heartbeat.

i'd consider jumping back in if they made that shutter release smoother. that last half press is not smooth and i tried numerous options thumb grips, shutter release but those didn't really help. the threaded release although looks cool and retro not really sure it is helping.

Well . . . . there is not 'much' difference from the X100S to the X100T. Facial recognition is new on the X100T, and placement of the MACRO mode is now in the menu, as the camera focuses rather closely anyhow. And there are other, what I consider at most, very minor updates.

If you desire an X100(x) I would go with the X100T for its very fantastic facial recognition feature. I have found it quite invaluable.

Being the X100T is such a fine and well thought-out camera, I would be shocked if Fuji could actually make any 'significant' improvements or changes to this particular line.

It would be almost suicidal to drastically change something as successful and popular as the X100 series.

wishlist:
weather sealing
leica q-style focusing tab (and move the aperture ring to the front of the lens)
no more built-in flash
if it has a shutter speed/iso dial like the x-pro2, it needs a setting to control iso through the rear dial.

Jonas: like yourself, the x100 pulled me into digital and love the mojo it has from the sensor with all its quirks. I have the TCL for I am a strictly 35/50 frame of reference. though once the funds are there I will consider an upgrade to a X100T or a second digital xpro2…. BTW like others have mentioned, I enjoy your eye and cinematic view….

After a while in hiatus, the X100 is back in regular rotation and I'm enjoying it all over again. My desire for upgrades would essentially be the innards of the X-Pro2/X-T2 in the body of the X100T, and with a redesigned lens that is sharp wide open. This would be a significant upgrade in stills and video quality. In the meantime, I'm happy shooting my classic X100.

Both these posts pretty much nail it for me. I've been using the x100 series since it was first released in 2011 and the x100t is my go-to camera. Nearly perfect at every situation I throw at it. Based on the last few releases, I'd expect an announcement of a new camera this fall.

-The new sensor/processor from the XP2/XT2 just makes sense as does the joystick. Each will be well received.
-I would like the lens to be redesigned so it's either sharper wide open or allows an extra stop of light in.
-Weather sealing has been on my wish list since rumors of an x100s and while I've never run into problems with my x100's dying when I'm in the rain or near water, it would be nice for the peace of mind.
-ISO control dial like the XP2 I wouldn't mind at all.
-The focus on the Leica Q is fantastic if Fuji would be able to replicate that functionality.

Using the same battery as the rest of the X-series would be nice just so I'd only have to worry about one type of battery/charger while traveling. Seeing as the XE1/2 is nearly the same size as the X100, using the larger battery should be possible.

Oh, and Fuji, please keep the shape and don't add a grip like the XP2 or XE2

Weather sealing;

A "snap" mode, similar to the GR's; or the ability to memorize MF mode's previous distance setting after switching back from AF; or a distance scale on lens (with a hard infinity stop, although unlikely). In short: a shortcut to focus the lens to a specific distance. I'm sure it's doable with just a firmware update...which is yet to come.

Yes, these would be great. I would also like faster AF.

I wouldn't want any other changes (e.g. faster lens) that come at the expense of a bigger camera.

Push/pull collar AF/mf.
Bigger battery or more shots

What I really think would be interesting is a portrait orientation and a 56/1.2 type lens version of the x100. X100P for portrait. That I think would be pretty niche, but pretty sweet. A small camera specifically for shooting people. We are at a pretty good place for iso and other sensor performance, and portraits aren't as MP intensive as lanscape or to me, wider angle photography.
