    I owned the X100S, X100T and X100F versions. Great cameras all with incremental improvements. However, after buying my first Leica, the M10, and Leica Summicron 35mm lens, I sold my last X100F and my other Fuji gear to buy a few more lenses for my M10. Nothing beats the Leica M for a true rangefinder shooting experience, but the Fuji X100VI must be an awesome camera too.

    An average of 4dE, yes, but again, depending on the number of colors and where in color space they are! Many display dE reports use colors that are easy to hit (IOW, not saturated dark colors). You can if you desire, build average dE reports that look better than they really are if you want. This is why making your own sets of colors to target, the numbers (larger/better) make an avg dE report far, far more telling. Again, part of the rabbit hole many don’t look into deeply enough.

    That distinction between measuring solid colors on the one hand and colour evaluation in context on the other is really valid; however, guidance gleaned from the former CAN help point one to do things that improve one’s impression from the latter – for example making better profiles. So yes, it can be a rabbit hole if one lets the rabbits dig inappropriately, but it doesn’t have to be misused.

    An average dE of 4 for a monitor calibration is not particularly good, especially recalling that an average means there are numbers above and numbers below. My monitor calibrations normally have average values of less than 1, and I know that’s the case for others with whom I’ve collaborated on such exercises. In a broad general sense, the risk of perceived incoherence between display colours and printed colours grows the higher the dEs.

    As for the CxF business, you’d need to check with them what works with their software.
