Out of the studio, yes!

Depends on whether you mean formal studio portraits or candid portraits, that is, "street" photos you can compose as portraits. If you mean studio portraits, then I'd stick with the DSLR. But the X100 is a walkaround camera, and I assume your portraits will be what you come upon with your X100 in-hand.

Here are a couple of "casual" portraits. The first is among the first photos I took with the X100. The detail is a 100% crop. I call that, "eye detail," even through glasses.

The second may not have the eye detail you specify, but it makes for an overall portrait I really like.

So, I'd say, if you want spontaneous, out-of--the-studio portraits, then definitely go for the X100.
