I have been a Sony NEX7 shooter (among others) since it came out. After borrowing a CZ24 from BL at the G+ conference, I was ready to buy one, and then the X100s was announced. I have decided to spend the money on the X100s, keeping the 18-200 and a 10-18, and see what I can do with the Fuji X. Part of the reasoning was readying the brilliant Ming Thein blog post on how much was learned by going "back" to a fixed 35mm equivalent camera vs. interchangeable prime and telephoto lenses. With smaller cameras, it is easier to carry several plus an iPhone vs. an SLR assortment, especially on the street or a long hike. Now, if Amazon will just send the camera. I look forward to capturing images like my father did with his Retina C3 so many years ago.
