Nobody viewing the photos ever says 'They're beautiful! But was the camera attractive?'

Of course not.  I was merely talking about how people react while you're taking the photos, and the way people react to you of course contributes to your final results.

Having an imposing presence with a big fancy camera can be either a good thing, or a bad thing, depending on how you want folks to react.  If you prize relaxed candids, like I do, then the more discreet camera like the x100 is of course far superior.

But speaking from experience, if you need people to "fall in line" for more formal shots, it can be a bit of a pain when folks don't immediately take you as seriously.  But I'm sure it's a non-factor for a seasoned professional who already knows how to heard the cats at a wedding.
