Oh hell, why don't we just admit it.  If Ansel Freakin' Adams rose from the grave and gave a resounding review on the quality of the images and the usability of this camera two things would immediately follow.

First would be some one asking "Who the hell is Ansel Adams".

Second would be the multitude of armchair wannabees instructing Mr. Adams on how to take better photos because they don't like the bokeh in his images of Yosemite. They would then ask for him to supply raw images from the X100s of the same subject taken on a moonlit night on the 6th of July at ISO 12,500 @f2 lit only by the additional light provided by a jar of fire flys.  Following attempts to process said images using their own software they would complain of a dreadful watercolor effect at 100% magnification in the shadow noise of said images. Upon making various posts complaining about the image quality 2 conclusions would be drawn.  One is that the X100s does not provide very good quality images.  Secondly, Ansel Adams wasn't a very good photographer.


Thanks for the laugh Scott.  Great stuff and spot on.
