    Hi, I just got a deal on an X100 and am waiting for it to arrive from Qatar, and was looking about and saw that Michael Hanke of the Czech Republic just received the second prize for the category of Sports: Stories in the World Photojournalism contest. The cool thing is that he shot these photos with a Fuji X100.

    Youth Chess Tournaments

    I have no relation or connection to this guy, but love the idea of shooting world class photos with older gear. His Instagram:

    Michael Hanke Photography (@michaelhanke.photography) • Instagram photos and videos

    He didn't start shooting until he was forty years old.

    I thought it was ironic that one of the older cameras to have been used to shoot a "winning" photo was FOR SPORTS, but then I saw it was a photo of a chess match. :rofl:

    Yeah, I hear the X100s are not the best cameras for action photos.
