Nuts? Probably. Don't care. I was able to get rid of stuff I absolutely wasn't using to get something I really want...without having to sacrifice something I really like (and USE).

The presence of the Xtrans in the X100s really has to call into question the RX1. Other than (1) Fuji raw decoding and (2) razor thin DOF, the X100s seems to be superior (in my subjective judgement).

What does the 35mm sensor get you? Certainly not IQ improvements.

No fair..you're appealing to my logical side!!
