I bet Fujifilm wishes it hadn’t stopped making these cameras…

If the frenzy over the Fujifilm X100VI has shown us anything, it’s that timing, and fate, and tides are everything. For years the X100 series had a loyal and discerning following, but was too specialized to become part of fashion folklore. But then, well into its life cycle, the X100V suddenly went viral, as people like to say these days, on social media. Fujifilm couldn’t make enough of them and now the same thing seems to be happening with its successor, the X100VI.

The X100 line includes some of the best compact cameras you can buy. Needless to say, it's also one of the best Fujifilm cameras in the range, at least in terms of reputation. No argument there.
