Our rating of the Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI

No rating available.

Our rating of the Fujifilm X100F

When Fuji introduced the X100 some years ago it was a runaway success. Large sensor, excellent controls and vintage design were a winning combination. The fourth generation, X100F, extends the series with greatly improved autofocus, a higher resolving viewfinder and faster continuous drive.

The fixed lens (35mm focal length equivalent) remains unchanged from previous versions but adds a sensor that detects when wide-angle or tele converters are attached.

Recommended for enthusiasts who do not mind the fixed lens and the rather hefty price tag. For a comparable retro-style camera with interchangeable lenses, see the Olympus Pen F.
