X100 v D3s in Paris. What would you do?
Aug 6, 2011

I'm asking for intelligent opinions (no fanboys or flamers, please) regarding the X100 and landscape photography. I'm spending one month in Paris. I intend to photograph the city, to a substantial extent. I may go with night shots almost entirely.

My question is, X100 (light, small, doesn't attract attention, potential for great IQ) versus D3s w/proper glass (heavy, large, attracts attention, unquestionable IQ and flexibility). I own both and prefer to go with what's convenient but I don't want to sacrifice too much in the output as the effort will be substantial. I have a love/hate relationship with the X100 and don't feel it's appropriate to photograph anything that moves, but for my specific intended purpose it may be perfect. I know what I'll get with the D3s and I know the only regret will be size and weight - but that is not a small sacrifice.

This could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. What would you do?

Steven
