I am a fan of Fujifilm X100 series. OK, I am a BIG fan of the X100 series. I love how this camera rekindle my love for photography. It’s so liberating using it. So modern and yet there is an old school charm to it. The X100V is an über chic camera with a fixed 23mm F2 lens. There is no need to think about what lens to mate with. If one do needs more option for lenses, there are only 2 convertor lens available. Therefore this system is headache free. 
With the newly design lens; it’s heap sharper than all its other predecessor. It’s indeed a long awaited welcome.

A friend asked, is it sharper than a XF35mm F2 lens when I attach the TCL convertor lens on a X100V. Which technically converts it to a 33mm F2 lens. I told him I am not sure, but I am certain its close. 

Which set-up will you choose? From this shot, X-E3 + XF35mm F2 looks much smaller.

Below are a few SOOC comparison. I have use a X-E3 as it closest competitor. In this comparison I just realize how much smaller the X-E3 is to X100V. 

X100V + TCL Convertor lens =658g (478g + 180g) X-E3 + XF35mm F2 WR = 507g (337g + 170g) Technically X100V do have an addition build in 23mm lens. The total weight of the X-E3 is 687g, if I do add a XF23mm F2 + XF35mm F2 to the
