At last, here is where we’ll wrap-up the hands-on report on the X100F. In the few weeks that I had the camera at my disposal, and shooting it daily, I had the opportunity to appreciate its virtues and character. I have written extensively in parts one and two of this review, and I sincerely hope I managed to describe the camera from a real-world perspective.

Time for some final thoughts then; including a couple or rants:

“Best compact camera for Street Photography”… ok, stereotypes will never die, but, yes, you can try hard to find a camera that beats the X100F for any type of street shooting. The silent operation, very practical focal length, rangefinder style OVF and speed make it a perfect choice. Some people shoot it from the hip; tried that, using hyperfocal distance, which is stupidly easy with Fujis. For a more “modern” twist, I also used my phone and the remote app to control the camera, and shoot on a super stealthy mode. ‘Nuff said: the X100F will never disappoint for street, urban exploration, travel and similar types of Photography.

“Is it a baby X-Pro2?” – Yes, in some respects it is. X-Pro2 users shall be immediately at ease with the X100F. Some may be tempted to buy one instead of a 23mm lens, getting a second backup body in the process…
