Considering moving from 5D mkII to X100. Insane? :)

Hi there,

Well, you read the subject line. As much as I love my 5D mark II + Canon 24-70mm combo I'm looking for a camera to "downgrade" to, mainly because I'm a 100% amateur, a family man and like to grab my camera when walking around town with my family. Having this in mind I've grown a little tired of dragging this tank of a combo around and haven't found a 100% justification for the money invested vs. what I see in the end on my screen.

To cut to the chase, I'm looking for some moral support in selling my 5D mkII and buying the X100.

Anyone here been in the same shoes, and if so was the transition hard or even regrettable?

Thanks, Al.
