Got a new/used X100s today - a few thoughts.

I'm comparing it to the X-T1 and 23mm f/1.4 combo that I also have.  OK, not a fair comparison - I know.  Why'd I buy the X100s then?

Reasons I bought it and might keep it (i.e. like it).

1) I got it for $750 (I can sell it for at least what I paid for it)

2) Fairly responsive in good light

3) Compact and unobtrusive

4) Fuji colors and quality JPEGs

5) The flash / shutter sync is pretty cool

Reasons I might dump it:

1) The X-T1 and 23mm surpass it in image quality and the EVF on the X-T1 blows the X100s out of the water.

2) F/2 is fairly soft in comparison to the 23mm f/1.4 or my Canon 35mm L

3) Macro mode at f/2 stinks (I like narrow depth of field macro shots)

4) No face detect - it's a great option and I love having it on my X-T1

5) I could sell it for a profit and get???

Fujifilm X100S
