At first glance, it might be hard to tell that much has changed with the latest X100 camera – so the Fujifilm X100VI vs X100V comparison is an intriguing one. 

The body is nearly identical, the lens is the same fixed 23mm focal length, and the cameras have the same dials and ports. It's only when you get under the hood of the Fujifilm X100VI that you can start to see some daylight between the two models.
