Re: X100s or X-E1

My backup camera is a Leica DL6.  It's a fine camera and small enough to carry around all the time (if I don't always attach the bulky EVF).  Still, it's not in any way comparable to the XE! (or to my older & now sold Panny GX1 w/5 lenses.  The resolution, versatility, IQ, and so on were better by quite a bit w/the GX1; the Fuji XE1 is a big improvement over that, let alone the DL6 (which itself is an improvement over the Leica DL$).

The FujiX100S would have better IQ than either of the Leicas, but be less versatile (i.e., fixed lens), but also considerably bigger. The XE! is a sorta gateway into a much larger system and, depending on what you want to use it for, can be a pro-level tool.

At least that's the way I look at it.
