    Not a competition as I love both and they seamlessly compliment each other, but I'm doing a 4 day bike tour in a few months and wondered if I could just take the F and not compromise too much with what the T2 could take. I was pleasantly surprised and I think I'm satisfied just to take the F. The couple of coloured shots at the bottom were from the T2 with the 16 & 50-140 attached. The rest was the X100F ( plus WCL) in Acros . Cheers.

    A little personal space is obviously important.

    Yeah a little. I brought a tenba byob to take my X-T2 and 50-140 inside a backpack, but after this test I'm thinking why should I lug more weight than I need when the F seems to stand up on its own.

    You will probably be fine with just the X100F (unless you really need a long lens). By the way, the X100 series fit perfectly in a Tenba BYOB7 (the smallest one). The matching little ripstop nylon sack that Tenba makes works really well with the BYOB too, if you haven't already figured that out. It's a great way to carry around the X100. The little elastic mesh pockets on the side of the BYOB are sized just right for a ThinkTank double battery pouch on one side and 49mm polarizer on the other. Have a fun trip.

    Thanks for the tip on the tenba 7. I brought the 10 and have to say I'm really impressed with the byob setup. I can understand why they get so many great reviews. Think I'll grab a 7

    #1 and # 4 does it for me, so I declare they are joint winners. Really like these 2 shots, thanks for sharing
