Re: x100 samples and thoughts from a 5d2 user

Great set of images and your skill level clearly shows.

One of the reasons I got my X100 was to save the pain of lugging a full frame and bag of lenses around and like you, I am delighted with the IQ and the camera as a whole.

You will find many posts from people complaining about AF, MF and on......many are non owners/users as surely people would consider these factors before buying? Me, I don't have an issue with AF and find it fast enough for street and landscape and in MF I use AF/AE button to good effect - problem solved.

The quality of JPEG out of camera is probably some of the best I have seen and I have always been a Raw only user but the X100 is slowly changing my mind.

Like you, I also find the retro look appealing as it reminds me of the Leica's I have owned and parted with.

Currently shooting landscapes and using SFX Pro2 for conversions - great combo.

Lots more of my X100 images below on my blogsite.
