Leica X vario vs Fujifilm X100S

Take a look between the comparison of Leica X vario and Fujifilm X100S, the Leica X vario features 16 MP, APS-C CMOS image sensor and ISO 100-12500 on the other hand Fujifilm X100S features 16MP APS-C X-Trans CMOS II Sensor and Expandable ISO 100-25600, take a look at the Major Specification Below.

About the sensors
A large APS-C CMOS image sensor is integrated into the X100S to provide high image quality and detail. Using Fujifilm’s unique X-Trans bespoke pixel array, the sensor is designed with a randomized pixel pattern to eliminate the need of an optical low-pass filter for reducing moiré and aliasing. By removing this filter from the design, higher image sharpness is possible. Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO) factors are also taken into account using the EXR Processor II, which helps to automatically compensate for aberrations and diffraction blur in order to produce images with the utmost inherent sharpness. The image sensor also utilizes backside illumination technology to help with the integration of phase-detection pixels into the sensor for improved autofocus performance without affecting image quality.

Not much details available about Leica X vario uses APS-C size sensor features a resolution of 16.1MP.


Fujifilm features built-in 23mm f/2 fixed focal length lens gives a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 35mm, making it more compact and easy to carry.
