Don't understand the love for the X100

"The X100 can, at times, be an incredibly frustrating camera to use. It’s autofocus is horribly slow, and often inaccurate, and metering goes haywire more often than I’d like. Unfortunately, there’s no time to chew on your framing, or worry about the autofocus not working properly. You need to just shoot. "

Well that is not good. Personally I went with the Leica X1 refurb, same price, and same AF speed in good light, but AF is quite accurate. And now other cameras are getting fast AF.

And then there is the sticky problem.

What is to love?
