Thread: Anyone willing to ditch their entire DSLR system for the Fuji X100?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone willing to ditch their entire DSLR system for the Fuji X100?

    And when i say ditch, dont confuse it with complement. Its easy to see how pro photogs will get it, but those with a conscious budget (like myself) may have to think twice before plunging into it. So what do you guys think?

    I did seriously thought of it before. But the lack of a top LCD for checking settings quickly is a deal breaker for me. (i dont mean i expect it to have a top LCD, because it will just destroy the RF look. Just that when i compare my d90 with it, it is one gripe for me). I can still accept the lack of changeable lenses though.

    The lack of hard physical buttons for quick changing of settings is also kinda a downside, as settings have to be changed in menu (READ: slower).

    I think DSLR offers me more option and variety in shooting. The X100 sure is a cool and nice camera, i think it will be very good for street photography. Wouldnt ditch mine, even though mine is a low end model.

    Never come across my mind. While it is good, it still cannot compare to DSLR in most aspects...
    I need to shoot more!

    Actually, most people here call her auntie zaren

    For me, I wouldn't ditch an entire DSLR system, as it only covers a 35mm focal length. And it is rather expensive.

    Me neither. It's a handsome camera but the slow responsiveness of the camera is keeping me from landing my hands on one. Maybe x200 or when canon releases a digital canonet that can change lens lol

    Still, a X100 can only shoot at 35mm. It is definitely a decent focal length that can be used for many genres of photography, but I feel it is not versatile enough to replace DSLRs. It is a niche product, and I see it very useful for street photography amongst other genres of photography due to its size, except that it is too expensive and I would rather build up my "main system" first since I don't shoot streets much. Until then, if I still have lots of spare cash, I might get one to play.

    It can actually cost less in the long run since you can't buy new lens, nothing to tempt you.
