Re: Help me decide Leica X1 or Fuji X100?

I honestly wouldn't recommend the Fujifilm X100 to anyone after owning one for several months before selling it. It is plagued with quality control issues and miss-focuses about 30% of the time. By quality control issues, I am mainly referring to the sticky aperture blade issues. The thought of going on holiday and not knowing when the camera might play up on you is pretty nerve wrecking for some. However, this being said, I did love the images that came out of this camera (when in focus), and the high ISO ability is amazing.

I've gone back to my Ricoh GXR and 28mm combo for the time being, but may consider to try out the Leica X1 or its successor in the near future.
