I've been wanting a case for my X100 since I got it last year, but there's no way I would pay what Fuji wants for it. I'd looked at a few alternatives, like the Rainbow Imaging leather case here on Amazon which is about $80-90 I believe. Still a little expensive. I didn't even know this case existed until I happened to come across someone recommending it on a forum. Because it's black I think it's even better looking than the official Fuji one (why would you put a brown case on a black and silver camera?). Upon receiving it I was very happy with the quality, it's very well made, forms to the camera well, and had a nice, rich leathery smell. I half expected it to be of a pleather material for this price, but it really feels like real leather. I have heard that it's just imitation leather, however. Fooled me. I never really cared for the top half of these half-cases, but it does fit over the camera as it should and protects it nice and snugly. I like that this one doesn't screw into the...
This fits my x100 perfectly, and it appears to be real leather, not only from the feel and smell, but from a couple of the edges on the product, where you can see a bit of unblackened, fibrous leather. The case is stylish in a retro way, and nice and stout. Any x100 clad in this will be able to take some pretty significant bumps without showing a mark.
I have the JJC lens hood adapter on the front of my lens, and that, plus the lens cap, still fit inside this case. It'd be extra cool if they made one with a bit wider/longer lens front to accomodate the hood too, but that's probably way too much wishful thinking.
The included strap is also nice, but a bit longer than the original. If you sling around head and arm, that might be helpful. I usually hang the x100 just around my neck, and this is bouncing at belt height on me, and I'm 6'3".
For the modest price, I can live with it's shortcomings.
First the pros -- it totally fits the overall retro look of the X100 and X100S cameras (both fit fine in this case); the cut outs are clear of all the buttons, dials, levers, and screens, except of course, the battery/memory card compartment (a con). The size also fits over the camera with a filter on the front. No need to keep the lens cap on because the front is protected by the case. Yay.
Now the cons, as others have said, in order to make it fit, the bottom layer inside the case needed to be prised out, no biggie, but still, an odd thing to have to do when the case is supposedly designed for this camera. The battery/memory compartment is covered and so you need to take the case off anytime you want to access this compartment, which is not great. On the other hand, if you've ever sat your camera in an unexpected puddle or wet place, perhaps an opening in the case on the bottom isn't something you'd...
