    There is a post somewhere in the Forum where it was officially announced that 1.30 was the last update for X100.

    I sure would see a hack where the AF button is moved to the same place as for X100S, faster min shutter speed at auto ISO, auto ISO maxed out to 6400, browse pictures taken in zoomed in mode.

    I can't see how Canon is taking a different approach to firmware updates. Maybe they offer bigger improvement steps, but then they brought out less updates. Fuji's approach is rather continuous, incremental improvement.

    And where is the X100 firmware incremental improvement on low light focusing?

    I am using the camera's AF-S and AF-C modes in low light, and it's really rather a question of learning to find the right target, but not a question of a lack of low-light focusing capabilities.

    Tip: Use EVF and play with the size of the AF frame, or use AF-C. Practice makes perfect.

    I wouldn't give up all hope regarding one more firmware update for the classic X100.

    Hmmm, what is not clear for me, what are the differences between the settings in AF MODE and PHOTOMETRY
    and what's their impact.

    AF MODE is selected using the slider switch on the left-hand side of the camera. You can choose between AF-S (single-point AF), AF-C (continuous AF, camera is focusing until you half-press the shutter button to fix focusing) and manual focus. See your user manual on page 48.

    To change the size of the AF frame for the EVF, press and hold the AF button pushing the command control button left or right. See your user manual on page 50.

    Photometry refers to the functions from which you can select for exposure measurement characteristics when you press the AE button - Multi (matrix), spot or average. So, this function has nothing to do with autofocus. See your user manual on page 52.

    Thank you RJ, but I'm not refering to the switch, but to shooting menu 3/4 AF Mode where can be selected Area or Multi.
    And my question is how interact those settings with the Photometry settings?

    I'm not aware they do.

    There's no need for such an interaction. Since both focus and exposure measurements are taken off the sensor, and measurement fields are selected electronically, both can be performed independently of each other. Most probably, they are performed in sequence, and not simultaneously, so that even the same selection circuitry can be used (but this is only an educated guess from my side).

    I thought the question might have been alluding to whether the exposure is influenced by the choice of AF mode / position. In spot and averaged metering modes, the answer is no. In matrix meter mode, it's never been clear to me if exposure is biassed to the current AF point or not.
