Fujifilm's X100 series has persisted for five generations since it first debuted in 2011. With the X100V, it gets some significant and welcome updates inside and out. You'll be able to get it by the end of February for $1,400 -- $100 more than previous models.

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The X100V has a hybrid optical/electronic viewfinder and an SLR-sized image sensor. The lens is a fixed prime with a moderately wide angle of view. The camera acquires focus and captures an image with as little as a 0.05-second lapse. The limitation here is the speed at which the lens elements move.
