The X100s and X20 are the follow up cameras to Fuji’s popular X100 and X10 cameras, and though they might look a lot like their predecessors, they’re loaded up with Fuji’s all new X-Trans II Sensors and EXR II Processing technology, which enables them to pop out images of mind-blowing quality while great upping their speed, including autofocus speed which Fuji now claims is the “fastest in the world” (but wait until next week, when someone else will undoubtedly release a new camera that makes the same claim ~_^).
The Fuji X20 enters a crowded field of excellent and affordable fixed lens compacts like the Sony RX100, Panasonic Lumix LX7 and the new Pentax MX1. There’s something to love about each one of these cameras, so once the X20 and the MX1 get into the hands of more shooters, it will be interesting to see a head to head comparison of these four cameras.
The Fuji X100s on the other hand has less competition to face, as it is one of the few “premium” compacts on the market. At $1,299 USD, it’s chief competition will come in the form of the newly announced Nikon Coolpix A (see a comparison between the Fuji X100s and Nikon Coolpix A Here) and, to a lesser extent, the Sony RX1, Sony’s Full Frame sensored yet tiny compact that comes in at $2,800 USD. It’s interesting to note that of these three cameras, the X100s is the only one equipped with a built in EVF.
