Old and in the way. There is no should in photography, only what is. Like any art all comers are welcome. And I think you may be looking at the wrong samples, most X shooters I've come across are purists.

Purist is definitely the marketing buzz round the X line - and it seems the pure experience is what attracts a lot of buyers - but it seldom shows in the end results.

I saw David Beckham (the footballer) using an X100 the other day and perhaps I am being cynical, but I'd hazard a guess this is more of a fashion statement than his love for a pure photography experience or his love for the output he gets.

And I think that mentality accounts for a large proportion of X buyers.

I don't think that's necessarily bad, I just think it's an interesting shift in what people are looking for in a camera.
