After extensive experience with the Fuji X-T1, especially using it with the 27mm f/2.8 pancake lens for street photography, I now have my hands on the new X100T. The X100 cameras, launched in 2011, are probably the most popular modern digitals for street and the T is the latest iteration with electronic shutter, an improved hybrid viewfinder and higher-resolution screen. But first, back to basics. Many consider a Leica M, from the original M3 to the latest M240, to be the natural choice and I wouldn’t entirely disagree:  I love all Ms. But this little X100T is a great alternative with a cartload of bells and whistles if you like that sort of thing. The Leica offers simplicity and, without a doubt, this can be a positive thing. The X100T is a far more complex digital camera but it can provide an equally rewarding experience if you take the trouble to get to grips with the features. In reality, while comparisons may be made, Leicas are in a class of their own, if only on price, and cannot be directly compared with digital mirrorless cameras such as those from Fuji. Biggest direct competition for the X100T actually comes from its siblings, the X-E2 and X-T1……..
