Have owned the x100 and x1, no gf

M4/3's makes a tradeoff that has never appealed to me, but I've shot extensively with the x1 and x100. On paper I prefer the x100, in usage the x1.

The fuji has all the obvious advantages, (ovf, high iso, faster lens, newer af tech, etc) but the leica consistantly takes photos I prefer. It comes down to better colors, (particularly reds) and higher microcontrast from the elmarit.

Neither is the best camera for every situation, but they both fit the same niche for me. The x1 gets far more bag time then does the fuji.

I think the key to deciding which of the three is best for you comes down to your intended usage firstly and budget next.

If I was starting fresh, I would wait to see how things shake out with the fuji x1 pro.
