I was asked to do a some portrait shot and gladly accepted. The X100s is my only camera/lens, and have never tested its performance doing portraits.

How is X100s as a portrait camera? I know there's some softness at 2.0 aperture, so I may just sit at 2.8 for blurred background. Anyone used the X100s professionally as a portrait camera?

As mentioned, what kind of portraiture are you looking to do? Are you familiar with using a 35mm FOV for portraits? It definitely takes some getting used to. Now that I understand it better and how it shapes things, depending on distance, I love using it for portraiture. I use a 35mm on my Canons for that a lot.

In terms of the X100S, I've used it professionally for portraits too. Not sure if it's the style you're interested in seeing, but maybe-
