    Hello,

    From the land of M43 and entry level DSLRs Ive picked up an X100 to replace my p&s after a small mishap. Ive only had it for day or two and I have really taken a liking to the camera.

    This is going to be my daily carry camera while my m43 kit is a bit more specialized at this point. Id most recently fell in love with 35mm FL after trying all sorts of primes and zooms and settling on a few primes. So far I love the styling, ergos, ISO capabilities, and DR of the X100 system. Im not really a zoom shooter and I enjoy zone focusing when out shooting so this camera suits me very well for now.

    Cheers!

    Ha ha, me too! No mishap though I just moved into a Fuji.

    Welcome fellow mu-43'er!

    It is nice to see that the X100 is still alive and kicking with new users. I guess they also will enjoy the upcoming firmware update. I have heard of a 20% AF improvement, whatever that will practically mean.

    It means the X100 is still worlds slower than my mu-43 kit, lol -- but that's not the most important thing about a camera. I really enjoy the X100's handling and the images it produces. It's the only camera I own that I shoot almost exclusively in jpg.

    Welcome to the forum and although I've just sold my X100 today I happily acknowledge it is a thing of beauty. Enjoy yours.

    Welcome to the forum. The X100 while not perfect is still a game changer.

    I have always liked my women a little rough around the edges. I have no doubt in capable hands the X100 will shine. Now off to find someone with capable hands. :cool:

    my hands are far from capable, but I still managed some shots that make me smile. Enjoy your new companion.
