  1. The X100 cameras have a 23mm lens, which, on an APS-C sensor, provides about the same angle of view as a 35mm lens does on a full-frame camera. Paired with the WCL-X100, which is a 0.8x wide-angle converter, the X100 captures an angle of view about the same as a 28mm lens on a full-frame camera. I would like a wider angle of view - something like what you get with a 24mm or 25mm lens on a full-frame body. The X70 looked interesting because, paired with its own WCL-X70 wide-angle converter, it captured an angle of view equivalent to a 21mm lens on a full-frame camera. But angles of view this wide are not possible with the X100 cameras.
  2. There is an article about that here: https://ivanjoshualoh.com/2016/04/17/hipster-camera-system/ But I don't see how it's much different from just using the WCL-X100. The WCL-X100 is a 0.8x converter; the WCL-X70 is a 0.75x converter. What I would like to see Fujifilm release is a 0.66x or 0.6x converter. I know these things always degrade image quality a bit, but if it is custom-designed for the X100 (along with a firmware lens correction profile), I'm sure they could make a good job of it. Really, 35mm and 28mm (equivalents) are not distinct enough. 35mm and either 24mm or 21mm would be a joy.
  3. Whatever happened to the X70? I don't currently own any Fujifilm camera, but I'm looking for a new small camera for travel. I have a list of "wants", and while the X70 doesn't tick all my boxes, it certainly looks like a nice option, especially combined with the optional optical viewfinder and wide converter lens. The X100 series looks even better of course, and I keep re-considering it, but the 28mm equivalent when combined with the WCL-X100 is just not wide enough, and so rules the camera out.
  4. You might look at something from OP/TECH USA. Maybe not the classiest of looks, but functional and good quality https://optechusa.com/pouches.html
  5. Do you think there is any likelihood that Fujifilm will release any other wide angle converters? If not, why not? I would love a 0.66x converter. I don't find the 28mm equivalent of the WCL-X100 to be interesting enough. I would much rather walk around with a 35mm and 24mm equivalent available.
  6. Not very important, but it just hit me... X100...X100S...X100T...X100F Could it be that the letters were chosen because they stand for Second, Third and Fourth? The sequence would have to end there though because Fifth would be F as well! Or it could just be coincidence. As I said, not important, just some idle pondering
  7. Just for fun... Which film camera do you think the X100/S/T most resembles? Post a picture or link to a picture if you can. Here's what DPReview seems to think: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilmx100/images/rangefinders.jpg Canon Canonet QL19 and Olympus 35 RC
