    On the walk to work today, 1st time out with the (wonderful) 35mm f1.4. The light was exquisite lumbering to my downtown cubicle this morning!

    Very nice early light images - I especially like your first two. I also got a kick out of your description "lumbering down to my cubicle". It's wonderful that you had your camera along - it might be kind of cool to do that regularly and see what sort of collection you come up with.

    I almost always have a camera/kit with on the way to work, though if I'm running late I don't always stop and take some snaps.

    Excellent Mike, beautiful light. You caught it while the catching was good. :)

    Yes it is wonderful, odd looking hood but wonderful optics.

    Yeah, I just can't bond with the X100S. I'm using a EOS M for the 35mm eq. viewpoint, which seems to be my favorite overall focal length. The auto focus issue is not a priority for me, though having an EVF/viewfinder is nice.

    I like the images, I like how it handles, I like the performance and I like how it looks.

    I like the size of the EOS M with the 22mm and I like that I paid $400 for both of em. I'm glad you have found THE camera :).

    I dunno about "The camera". But it works for me ... but I don't think I'm all that particular with cameras. I used Canons for years and I think they were quite ugly. The OM-D's, don't fit well in my chubby yet regal hands, but they fit well enough. And with the Fuji's, I can pretend I'm shooting an AF-ing Leica with this film-esque looking output. I'd like to think I made the right choice, but to be honest, I think I could adapt and be pretty happy with most any pro-sumer or better camera.

    Did you get a steal on that camera from someone looking to dump it or is that really what they are going for now?

    Wow! These mirrorless cameras really don't hold their value do they? How slow is the focus of the EOS M with the 22mm compared to something like the X100 or the X-E1 + 35mm f1.4 - or even the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 on one of the older m43 cameras if you've used any of those (I'm just tossing out camera/lens combinations I'm familiar with)?

    Not a whole lot of difference, but it's a little slower than both the 35mm with an XE-1 or the 20mm with one of the faster Panny bodies or the EM-5. Not sure relative to the X100.
