23rd February 2017:  UPDATE:

The answer is:

Image A:  X100T
Image B:  X100S
Image C:  X100
Imaged D: X100F

Congratulations to Kit Bonney – who was the randomly selected winner.  Kit, please contact me at your convenience.

A while back, when the X100T was released, I asked if people could tell the difference between the cameras based on a single image.

It was a bit of fun, and the randomly drawn winner got a signed copy of my X100S Book.

I’m going to run the same competition, this time, you have a new camera, the Fujifilm X100F (review) to add to the mix.

I’m going to make the prize a little more interesting:

On the 23rd February, I’ll select a random person from the comments who has the correct order.

 

If they are based in the UK, they will get a free place on any of my UK or European Street Photography Workshops (travel not included). If they are outside of the UK, they will receive a free copy of the X100S Book.

Here are the images,  all shot at 1/30th, F3.2 / 200 ISO with no in-camera settings applied.  White Balance set to Shade.  All images are SOOC JPEGS using the Standard film simulation.

Leave your answer in the comments below.

Good luck.

Preorder the Fujifilm X100F

If you want to pre-order the X100F in the UK, you can do so via Warehouse Express.  You might also be interested in the Tele Conversion Lens or the Wide Conversion Lens.

Additionally, my friends at Castle Cameras are offering a Fuji X100F preorder service too.

And finally….

I currently have three available workshops myself.

I am running a Wedding Photojournalism Workshop in London next month.

The Street workshop in London on the 3rd March has now sold out.  I’ve added another date, the 31st March: Street Photography Workshop in London

I’m also running two photography workshops in Lausanne, Switzerland in conjunction with Fujifilm Switzerland in May.

  • Happy Snapping – Kevin (in my Studio in Malmesbury, listening to Piano Trio in F major, Hob.XV:40

  • Matthew Richards

    Image A = X100T, Image B = X100F Image C = X100S and Image D = X100F

  • Rich Calver

    Hi Kevin, i’m going to go for;

    A – X100S
    B – X100T
    C – X100S
    D – X100S

    Wouod love to come over for a documentary workshop, fingers crossed!

    Rich Calver

  • I’m pretty sure it goes:
    C = x100
    A = x100s
    D = x100t
    B = x100f

    Fingers crossed.

  • Rich Calver

    Woops! D should be X100F – I’m blaming autocorrect

  • I like Image B – so I will go for that 🙂

  • Haha! Excellent post Kevin. Btw, it was nice to meet and listen you in SNAP 2016 😉 Take care man!
    And yes, let me try this:
    Image A: X100S
    Image B: X100F
    Image C: X100
    Image D: X100T

  • Rich Calver

    A – X100S
    B – X100T
    C – X100
    D – X100F

    Thats what my first attempt should have read!!!

    Rich

  • Gareth

    Well, I hope, in terms of colour rendition, contrast and clarity that Image B is the X100F – otherwise Fuji are going backwards.

    Image A : X100T
    Image B : X100F
    Image C : X100
    Image D : X100S

  • Hi, Kevin

    Great bit of fun!

    I’m also going with;
    Image A : X100T
    Image B : X100F
    Image C : X100
    Image D : X100S

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge! Your website is an amazing source of info, particularly for newbies such as me.

    Cheers, Karl

  • A- X100F

    It’s pretty hard to tell the difference that’s for sure!

  • A – X100S, B – X100T, C – Original, D – X100F

  • ok, let’s try
    A- X100T

  • Hi, Kevin!

    This is a funny exercise. Here are my answers:
    A = X100S
    B = X100F
    C = X100
    D = X100T

    Thanks!

  • Martyn Thompson

    I got S,T,100,F.

  • Hey Kevin,
    it was fun figuring that out 😉
    My answers:
    A = X100S
    B = X100T
    C = X100F
    D = X100

    Greets from Frankfurt, Germany!

  • I think it goes like this:
    B X100F
    D X100T
    A X100s
    C X100

    The quality is great in all of them!

  • Ben Scappaticcio

    Who knows( apart from you)! I like B and D the most so hopefully one is the T or im going sell all my Nikon gear that i don’t use!

  • A – X100T

    Thanks – great idea!

  • Jim Moody

    A = x100s

    B: F
    C: S
    D:T

  • I’ll be honest, I have no idea!!
    But I’m guessing by the photo you’re in Argentina?
    Best,
    P : )

    • Ha. No, I’m not. But I’ve been there a couple of times….:-)

  • Hey my (un)educated guesses are

    A X100S

    0k,

    this is a lot harder than i thought, but one thing i saw got me these results.

    1. X100

    2. X100F

    3. X100T

    4. X100S

  • adam

    if theres a bonus for guessing where this was taken, i’m saying england, not far from the border with wales, on a rainy day. my guess is based on what appears to be a semi-detached, the colour of that house’s walls, and the exterior water pipes.

    • Close. It’s been raining here since Queen Victoria was on the throne. I’m in an 18th converted building in Wiltshire, which is my office.

  • Well, here goes:

  • Toby

    Kevin, sfter I read your initial x100F review I decided to by the x100s book since even though it is a bit dated now it appears to have lots of useful info. Have you considered updating the book to the latest version? Thanks, Toby

    • Hi Toby,

      I would LOVE to write a new book, but sadly the publisher no longer does photography books.

      If there was another publisher out there…….. ahem!

  • In order of preference for the image tones I Like:
    A
    C
    B
    D
    So I hope the camera order is:

    A – X100F
    B – X100S
    c – X100T
    D – X100

    The shadow details in the pewter tell the tale of dynamic range.

    A=X100T – B=X100S – C=X100 – D=X100F

    Looking backwards in the comments, I see a lot of people put the X100 on C. I’m really curious about the results 🙂

    C X100
    D X100F

    By the way, I always enjoy your blog and especially love your “listening to” note at the end of each post. Great stuff!

  • As a X100 early adopter (seems to be a very long time ago now that the X series came into being), I have to thank you for this comparison, Kevin.
    Looking at these images, I think the only difference between my old X100 and the X100F appears to be about £1,250!

    – image B: X100F
    – image C: X100
    – image B: X100T

    Very hard to check differences, so is it worth upgrading X100? Joking 🙂

    Okay guys. I had a few minutes so I tallied up the results through noon Eastern USA time on 27 JAN. Some respondents did not vote for all four images, a few voted twice for one image.

    A. B. C. D

    100. 22. 0. 60. 6
    100S. 47. 9. 17. 16
    100T. 11. 42. 6. 30
    100F. 10. 39. 6. 39

    Someone could run a non-parametric stat test on this to analyze our perception of images. Interesting exercise……

    Cheers

    • Well done. Good analytics 🙂

      • Richard N

        Hey Kevin,

        Thom Hogan had an insightful post recently about training (or lack thereof) of reviewers of image quality/differences. These results here seem to indicate that except for the X100, the average viewer is not as discerning as we would think ourselves to be, or our personal preferences are different. Or that the differences in the IQ of the X100 series beyond the original are not significant (at least for the subject matter judged).

        Cheers

  • A X100
    B X100F
    C X100S

  • Good Afternoon Kevin.

    Great idea for a fun little challenge this 🙂 . I think the images are as follows..

    X100 = C
    X100S = A
    X100T = B
    X100F = D

    Cheers Craig.

  • You should know better than anyone else a) how useless such a comparison is and b) that the true improvements of the X100F lie in it’s vast usability enhancements rather than pixel-level stuff. Since getting a hold on the F I wouldn’t even look at the T again.

    • Just a bit of fun Nick. Even photographers are allowed that sometimes.

    Since you have workshops in different countries, is there any reason why the workshop prize is only for the ones living in UK?

    Fun initiative! 🙂

  • A- X100T
    B- X100F
    C- X100S
    D- X100

  • Dinesh

    A – X100 S
    B – X100 T
    C – X100
    D – X100 F

  • Thomas Hurlburt

    A- X100F
    B- X100T
    C- x100
    D- X100S

  • Marc Rietz

    A = X100
    B = X100F
    C = X100S
    D = X100T

  • Jason Schwartz

    A = x100s
    B = X100t
    C = X100
    D = X100f

  • Justin

    A x100
    B x100f
    C x100s
    Dx100t

  • A = X100S
    B = X100T
    C = X100 (so much character)
    D = X100F

  • sergio

    a=100
    b=100F
    c=100S
    d=100T

  • Gildas Billy

    So here is my guess:

    1. X100T
    2. X100S
    3. X100
    4. X100F

    Cheers !!

    Here is my guess:

    A – X100
    B – X100F
    C – X100S
    D – X100T

  • Gustavo Kume

    Here it goes:
