X100 suitable for portrait photography?
Feb 23, 2012

Hi. I'm intrigued by the X100 as an all around camera that's...well...compact and light enough to actually carry "all around". But I'm not sure if the effective 35mm focal length will work well for the types of photography I enjoy. First and foremost, I photograph my kids. Both tight shots and environmental portraits. Not so much action or fast moving stuff, but where he/they are the primary subject. I also like photographing architecture and misc travel subjects.

I'm confident the focal length is fine for the latter, but, again, not sure how well it does for portrait type images. Any opinions (and examples if you care to share them) would be greatly appreciated!
