Now here’s some food for thought – say you’re on the lookout for a new Micro Four Thirds camera, and want to do your homework in searching out for the best model that your hard-earned buck can give you. Interestingly enough, performance benchmarks by DxOmark pointed towards the Fuji sensor delivering superior results in all measured aspects (Color depth, Dynamic range and ISO performance), amongst its peers, with the aged Panasonic GH1 still being the best Micro Four Thirds shooter out there.
Of course, do not take this at face value and do read between the lines – DxOmark measures the RAW performance of the sensor and not the JPG results, so if video quality is your concern, then the GH series would be your best bet. What the Fuji X100 offers over the rest would be its hybrid viewfinder, classic design and button layout. Hopefully this will give a confidence boost to Fuji to join the Micro Four Thirds bandwagon!
