    Will it take if you do that? Do you have to put it on AF-C or something?
    No, AF-S is fine. If you press the shutter firmly in one go, it will always fire - and more often than not, it will have focused correctly. I thought people were bullshitting when I read that in several places, but miracolously, it does work.

    Anyone got hold of the x100s yet ?, i think i might get one in the coming months. I currently have a d700, but want something a bit more discreet, and been really impressed with what i have read about it.

    Not in stock on amazon though and there seems to be a shortage of stock of the camera as well.

    I've considered upgrading my "old" x100, but gave up for now due to the stock shortage. I think amazon says something like 2 months in Germany. I guess everyone and their dog bought one for their summer holidays.

    Fujifilm released new firmware last week for the x100. Yes, the old x100, not the new x100s. It's pretty amazing that a company bothers to improve a discontinued product (for free) instead of just trying to get people to upgrade to the new model.

    So if you've got one, here's your chance to get faster AF and focus peaking mode for manual focus.

    I sold mine 6 months ago as I assumed the S meant no more updates and the AF still annoyed me, althought the IQ was epic. Rumours of the firmware update peaked my interest and when I read reviews of it I knew I had to have one again, and now I do :)

    You bought another one? Where from? They seem actually more expensive now than they were around a year ago.

    I bought one on ebay for 430. Sold mine earlier in the year for 500, bearing in mind extras I sold with mine price is about same really. The money side doesn't bother me, it's just a bit frustrating that we have to heap praise on Fuji for fixing things and adding things when half the time it's because they didn't work properly in the first place! Far better than just ignoring issues which is what Canon and Nikon tend to do. The new D610 is pretty shameful from Nikon.

    Has anyone tried the new firmware? Does it make a significant difference?

    I so want to love this camera. And I so nearly do.

    Yes it makes a huge difference and why I bought another one. Used it in London last night, AF in low light is so much more accurate.

    I've got one of these lovely little fellas, its just annoying about the focus distance. Having to kick it into manual and use the auto focus button or the lens wheel is annoying when it should really be able to focus itself automatically in standard AF mode.

    I do love it mind.

    I think that is because the minimal focus distance is unusually small, and if you wouldn't have to set it manually, the AF would always hunt through the whole spectrum, making AF for "normal" distances slower than it is.

    New shiny for me! Covert street photography is the plan, and to carry it everywhere unlike the dslr.

    so I'm thinking of getting a fuji x100....is the original 100 worth getting with the latest firmware, or should I be upping the budget and aiming for an S or a T? Thoughts most welcome.

    @beachedvinyl I have no experiences except with the original x100. What I can tell you though is that the next model is rumoured to be announced any day now, so I think currently it would be wise to wait. Not necessarily to buy the new one, but because it will drive the prices down of the T.

    cheers Lou - mine will be an ebay or used from a dealer purchase, so not sure the new model will affect prices so much, but we'll see.

    I guess it depends. I doubt the original X100 or the S will get much lower, but the T most certainly will. :)

    Either way, absolutely lovely cameras. I gave my X100 away within the family, but it's probably my favourite camera I've ever used. It's just a joy to take pictures with, every time you pick it up.

    I never really got on with mine sadly. I so badly wanted to love it but I never got over focussing and shutter lag issues, even with the firmware updates.

    endorsement enough for me...will start hunting. thinking it needs to be a black special edition though, for the pro look ;)
    i felt the same about my gr digital which died a couple of years back. Fed up of using a phone, just not the same.
    tempted by this were picking it up not a complete ballache.

    I just sold my X100! For 280 fwiw, if you're looking. I loved that camera, but the focus is slow. I've moved on to an XT1 and the difference is enormous.

    If you don't want interchangeable lenses tho, I'd say get an X100S. They can be had for about 400 notes if you scour hard enough, used that is. The T is a fairly minor upgrade. The rumoured F will be a while yet (6 months maybe). Think they had factory issues with natural disasters and such.

    The focus on the X100T is, in my perception at least, faster than the X100S. I have the S not the T, it's a lovely thing. I seem to take nice pictures with it. The lens is remarkable.

    If you have the money, these cases are wonderful:

    I have one of the choco brown cases with a folding flap at the back for my X100S. I also have one of the cheap lens hoods from amazon + clear filter, and a nice thumbgrip. These additions make all the difference.

    If you don't need a viewfinder,you could also take a look at the X70. Not used it myself, but the lens is said to be razor-sharp, and it's small and looks nice.

    That said, no viewfinder would be a no-go for me personally.

    Viewfinder is essential IMO
