My X100 first impressions

Hello! Recently (Saturday 23rd June) I got a shiny new X100

I'd read so much about the camera, and although there's not really much else left to add, I thought I'd write about my mostly miscellaneous first impressions:

In summary:

  • Love the noise performance

  • AF seems just fine, even in low light

  • Dials/aperture ring are really nice, not too loose

  • OK button and command dial thing are bad

  • ND filter is surprisingly useful

  • I like the EVF more than I expected

  • I need to learn how the camera meters before I can feel comfortable using the OVF

I guess it doesn't really come across in the blog post but I really like the X100 – it's pretty much the camera I've always wanted, I think. My Ricoh GR-D 3 came close, but it's not nearly as versatile (it does do street photography exceptionally well though), and my Pentax K10D, when it could still AF accurately, was just too big and heavy for most things (the DA* 50-135/2.8 is a fantastic lens for photoshoots though).
