My notes:
- The buffer on the X100 is definitely horrible. I am using a class 4 SDHC card (15mb/s | 16gb) and it takes the camera 7 seconds to store the ONE raw + ONE large jpeg file onto the card. I am still able to take photos however, the buffer freezes the camera up and prevents me from changing ANY settings. This has become an issue in the field. A faster card is on it's way (45mb/s | 16gb) and that supposedly lowers the time down to 2 seconds - which is faster, but is still a slouch.
- The 7D and the 5D are definitely a lot faster with bigger buffers and of course, I didn't experience any slowdowns - which is of course expected.
- The X100 does have a significant amount of in-camera sharpening when it outputs jpegs but all of the settings were set to it's standard.
- It appears to me that the X100 does not have chroma noise but it's more grain like in comparison to the other cameras.
- After looking at these files for about an hour, I still don't know how many stops of advantage in terms of noise you'd get from an X100 compared to the 7D - to me, it looks like one stop.
- Oddly enough, the white grate behind the light stand starts to disappear ISO 3200 on the Fuji X100 and detail is lost by ISO 6400

I hope that you've enjoyed this test as much as I have. It's definitely feels nice to have a pocketable, lightweight that offers high image quality - one that you don't have to worry about/that is comparable to something like a 7D/5D, and has both manual and automatic features. I hope that Fujifilm will continue to develop this lineup - one that offers interchangeable lenses as there definitely is a market potential for these types of cameras.

Here's a link to my Canon EOS 5D Mark II vs Canon EOS 7D vs Fujifilm Finepix X100 test. Will be doing a video after my nursing finals.

Wow looking good, your not the first forum member I've seen online who is blown away with the IQ of the Finepix X100 vs DSLR's etc.

I'm still waiting for a ETA of my X100, sold my Nikon D40 + 18-200mm VR to save up for the X100.

Very cool to see! The 5D of course has a resolution boost, but the details it holds on to at high ISOs looks very comparable.

Can you clarify what is updated? I don't see any new images.

I guess all the 7D images are new.

Are the exposure values consistant for all cameras? Same aperture, exposure duration?

Whoops, he updated this thread, I was looking for the link to POTN.

Since you got them at the same exposure and ISO, can you comment if the shutter speed was similar on the X100 to the other two? I'm curious since fingerpuk and a few other reviewers have said that the ISO seems a bit off (as if it's mis rated). I'm wondering if you found the shutter speed much longer on the X100 than the other two.

The shutter speed did feel longer now that you've mentioned it. I will definitely check on this when I get off from work (gotta pay off the x100 somehow & I have to start saving up for the next iteration because I just LOVE this camera).

Could you do the same test but this time taking portrait either in natural lighting or studio lighting intead of this liveless camera stand in a closet... The point is that I would like to see the skin tone and shadow noise in different ISO setting between these cameras, perhaps we can compare the dynamic range as well.
