Re: X100 suitable for portrait photography?


I wouldn't choose 35mm as a close-up portrait lens, but it is perfect for environmental portraiture. Some samples taken with the X100 (wide open):

Dadme un mundo sin contornos,
Un espacio feliz que ignore los perfiles.
Concededme, sí, la dicha redonda
De flotar sin conciencia en el fondo
Desenfocado de mis fotografías.

Give me a world with no edges,
A happy space knowing nothing about outlines.
Grant me, please, the round joy
Of thoughtlessly floating on the blurred
Background of my photographs.
