Fujifilm has announced the new Fujifilm X100S, an update to the Fujifilm X100, it features a new 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II sensor with built in phase detection focus, increased resolution and reduced noise, as well as super fast autofocus, shutter lag and start up time. There are also improved focus features including a split image, as well as focus peaking.

From Fujifilm: Inheriting its elegant design and high-performance FUJINON 23mm f/2 fixed prime lens from the X100, the FUJIFILM X100S offers a new 16.3 megapixel APS-C X-Trans CMOS II with inbuilt Phase Detection pixels. These, when combined with the enhanced processing of the new EXR Processor II, offer the world’s fastest Auto Focus (AF) speed of as little 0.08 seconds*1.

The new sensor and processor increase resolution by 25% and reduce noise by 30% when compared to the X100.

The X100S’s super-fast autofocus ability is enhanced further by other high-speed features including a start-up time of approx. 0.5 seconds, a shooting interval of 0.5 seconds and a shutter lag time of just 0.01 seconds.

There are also marked improvements in manual focus handling when compared to the X100, with the X100S offering the world’s first “Digital Split Image” feature*2, which displays dual images that can be lined up to aid accurate focusing. Plus a separate “Focus Peak Highlight function” which shows you precisely which area of your composition is currently in focus.

This could upset users of the Fuji CSC`s, this will have better focusing, more than likely the x20 will be more responsive as well.
