Re: X100 sRGB or Adobe RGB

I shoot RAW+jpg using Adobe RBG. Most of my output is to web but I've found sites like Flickr loose color saturation, especially reds, when compressing sRGB images. AdobeRBG get converted to sRBG by Flickr but seem to retain more of the original image's saturation.

In any event if you're ever planning to print from jpg you're better off having saved images in AdobeRGB color space, as many noted above it has a wider gamut and contains more color information.
