Of course it is

I agree that 35mm might not be the ideal focal length for portraits but that doesn't mean that you can't take great portrait with it.

If you shoot mainly portraiture, maybe you should look elswhere. But if you need an all around camera which has an amazing IQ, fantastic low light performance, that can also do wonderful close portraits and gets into your pocket, I can't think of many alternatives that would come close to the quality of the x100 at this price range.

Here is an example shot in an a dark restaurant, handheld with no flash OOC, except crop and resize. Judge for yourself.
