The Fujifilm X100F is on sale at $900


We love Fujifilm's X100F, but it's definitely not for everyone. It's a fixed-lens APS-C camera best suited for street photography, blending the excellent 24.3-megapixel X-Trans sensor found in mirrorless models like the X-T2 with a 23mm (35mm equivalent) f/2 lens. As is par for course with Fujifilm cameras, you'll find a ton of traditional dials for controlling ISO, aperture and exposure compensation. The X100F is also fairly flexible, with a hybrid viewfinder that can operate like a rangefinder, a traditional EVF or a blend between the two. One thing it's not, though, is cheap. At $1,300, you've always had to really want the X100F to even consider buying it. What about $900, though? That's the price it's just dropped to on Amazon.

 The X100F's successor, and it's apparently going to be announced very soon. Months of reporting from Fuji Rumors have given us a fairly complete picture of the purported new model. As expected, it's said to feature the latest version of Fujifilm's X-Trans sensor (the 26.1-megapixel unit found in cameras like the X-T3), paired with an all-new 23mm lens. It's likely to cost an awful lot more than $900, though, with Fujifilm Rumors recently suggesting it could debut at $1,500 this February.
