Great article Richard, thanks!
Regarding JPEG compression, did you see much of a difference between "Large Fine" and "Large Normal" in your testing?

jbckhoo: Can anyone verify whether this update has improved the "smarts" of the Multi-AF focusing?

When I had this camera, i found that the Multi-AF focusing would often lock on odd parts of the scene in the foreground or background (example: Giving the camera to a waitress to take a photo of the table, camera locks focus on back wall instead of faces at the table).

I know the x100 doesn't have AF face detection, but the Multi-AF seemed "dumber" than other implementations I've used.

Anyone know if this has been improved in this update? Thanks!

Thanks for your input - much appreciated.
It sounds like the quirky selection logic in Multi-AF is still there, but overall performance has improved somewhat.
