Early observations...

Ok, so I'll be honest. I don't "need" the X100. I need other boring gear more than this (backup things like a spare 50mm etc) but I decided that I'd worked pretty hard this year and was due a treat.

So, not needing the X100, I was feeling a little guilty buying it, which took a little bit of the shine off the purchase (normally I'd have been buzzing yesterday evening). I felt kind of empty (not normal!)

1 day later and pretty much all of those bad vibes have gone. Why? Well because I guess I now appreciate that the X100 can definitely play a role as a working tool for a working photographer. It's a mini DSLR. And such a pleasure to use.

You know ALL those reviews you've read by people saying gushy stuff about the impact it's had on them, how you overlook the issues because the overall experience is such a joy? Well they're not lying, it's great...
