Great "art work" (not photos anymore) indeed !!!
Kokeen4231: This is the closest competitor to leicas and the sony RX1. If the price is right, I would rather have this.
@ Aristone: don't get me wrong, I have a D800 and it's great but the X100s will be my business travel companion as it fits nicely in my laptop case :)
scpmghemonc: I am planning to get a Nikon D800, unable to decide between D800 and D800 E, any suggestions ? is it worth the extra money ?
Nikon D800/E with 2nd runner up Fuji X-E1
I ended up with the X10 as my sidekick. First impressions, the camera looks retro and is certainly made of high quality material. I have not had the chance to test it yet because I'm debating whether I should exchange it for the X100. As far as the other 5 cameras in this review, the top two after the x10 were the LX5 and Nikon 7100. Despite the huge price difference, I still went for the X10 for having a CMOS and the much higher build quality than any of the others. For price and quality alone, I would have probably chose the LX5. The bottom line is that all of these cameras are and will perform about the same, it's really a matter of what system you prefer and what price fits in your budget.
Great article, thank you for sharing!
