Fluidity of movement with a Yin-Yang reflection. Superb!
I bet a lot of really stupid really rich folks would sell their mothers to be able to get this and the must-have case. Many are called to photography but these few are not chosen, to paraphrase some ancient wisdom. I'm thinking of having a red-dot Leico logo tattooed on my forehead as a third eye instead.
Film will rise again!
YAWN........ Another non-event in the world of Leica grossly over-priced goods.
We had bad roof moss due to the temperate rain forest climate here in west-central Oregon, USA. But not this bad! :)
What's the little "pancake" lens on the body in the rear?
Compare the X100S with the lowly, humble and aging Olympus EPL-1 at ISO 100 on DP Review's interactive studio shot comparison widget. Zoom in on various parts of this test scene area. The Oly clearly out resolves the Fuji and has better JPEG colors/hues too.
ulfie: WHOA! 94mm (3.7 in.) long and nearly US $900. Rich guy's toy blunderbuss.
Not "rich guy's toy" but "rich guy's toy blunderbuss," with all the phallic undertones included. ;)
US $900 is cheap? The need for f/1.4 is waaaay over-hyped. An f/2 with IBIS will do just as well for probably 1/3 the cost.

What, being a spy camera I thought it would have .007 MP.
The quirky Sigma DP1 & 2 Merrills outresolve these for sure. Seems as if Nikon took off the low-pass filter but ... so what?
The interplay of light & shadow, and geometries is VERY interesting in this image. Well seen and well captured!
Olympus's US website says there is no ISO 100 either in auto or manual mode: "AUTO ISO 200 - 25600 (customizable, Default 200-1600) Manual ISO 200 - 25600."
Exceptionally fine B&W image!
DxOMark test results/specs are great yet the actual image quality even for the "originals" are really no better than say the Panasonic 20 f1.7's which costs about 1/3 and is only a tad slower f-stopwise and a tad tighter FOVwise.
Sadly reminds me of the Vietnam War era bumper sticker "Kill a Commie for Christ."
Good maybe even very good IQ but not any better than my $140 Oly E-PL1 body with 20/1.7 Panny lens. Really!
Even Oly's "ancient" E-PL1 w/ Panny 20/1.7 runs circles around this Canon's IQ.
Evocative. Very well done!
