Re: The X100S has a wide angle option - WCL-X100

Bought recently used (X100s + converter) for $1100 - exactly the same reasoning

Seems that this combo at 28mm and f2 is noticeably less sharp, but it is not a deal breaker for me.

Actually my experience with the adapter is the exact opposite. I found that the adapter is just as sharp as the built in lens.

Absolutely true.   I use the wide angle adapter 50% of the time or more.  There is no degradation to IQ.  At all.   Tack sharp deep into the corners.

I did use the search option and I went though similar threads. However, I'm still not clear about all the pros/ cons and still can't make up my mind!

The question is: if the $$$ was not a problem, 35mm was the perfect one and you were able to sacrifice the viewfinder - which one would you pick - rx1 or x100s? And why?

Thank you for your help!

Have both X100 and RX1. Love using both.
So my suggestion is get both.
When I go traveling I have someone else carry one and trade with them from time to time.

RX1 vs. X100s initial impressions

For me I'd prefer X100 for its
image color tone
hybrid OVF/EVF shooting experience
looks/design/form factor

and the RX1 for
FF format sensor

So it's a simple choice for me and comes down to whether I must have a FF sensor or not.
If yes then get the RX1. If not then X100s.
It's really tough choosing between two great cameras but that's part of the fun.

If money isn't a problem then I would suggest the A7R, full frame and has a viewfinder. But again, you could get 2 x100s for that.

I would also go with A7 + 35mm instead of RX1. The rx1 is too expensive for a limited camera (the first x100 was said to be expensive, and see how rx1 pushes the bar)
