Fujifilm X100 Digital Camera Review$1,199.95
Chromatic aberration was the X100's greatest weakness in our resolution testing. This noisy discoloration popped up throughout our test photos—particularly in the extreme corners of the image. This won't impact most photos or most photographers, but you will definitely notice chromatic aberration in high contrast photos shot in RAW or even maximum resolution JPEGs.
We typically do not score distortion for SLRs (given the fact that each lens of a given system will have differing distortion). The X100, however, does not have a lens mount for interchangeable lenses, so the distortion produced by the lens is critical. Fortunately, distortion scores were excellent. Judging by a close examination of the test shots, our guess is that Fuji is employing a heavy amount of in-camera distortion correction. The correction is visible to the human eye, but subtle enough it won't have a negative impact on most of your shots.
