I'm considering either the X100s or the X20 for casual portraiture with bokeh. Thoughts?
The author and I are in the same camp. I have sold two DSLRs because I realized I didn't feel like carrying them when I travel both internationally and domestically. If one wants to blend into the background of a foreign marketplace or other venue, a smaller camera is the way to go. Of course, if one's DSLR provides an inflated sense of self-importance, then nothing can be done about that.
makofoto: I just got one of these ... in some ways more versatile: http://woxom.com
Great tip, this is just what I was looking for. Wonder if it fits the iPhone 5.
Oh, why did this have to have a fixed LCD screen? After using an articulated screen on the Panasonic DMC-GH2, I can't go back to a fixed one. It is just too useful of a feature.
DotCom Editor: Too bad they don't do RAW.
Yes, I ended up getting rid of my HX9V for that very reason.

Thanks for posting the link.
DPSurfer: And I will now finalise to buy a NEX 5N, not only to help but because it's a great product.
justmeMN: I wonder if the newly manufactured Sony NEX 5Ns still have the movie-click defect. If not, they should have some kind of special markings, so prospective customers know that they are getting a camera that doesn't have that defect.
Yes, this is precisely why I did not purchase a 5N.
Oelph: Mine (bought from Jessops last week) is already on 1.02.

At this price I would opt for an APS-C sensor.
Love the video, thank you for posting. I hope the NEX-7 doesn't have the "clicking" that some consumers have complained about with the NEX-5N.
