I really gave the X100 a shot...

... and personally, I'm not getting the hang of it and am about to sell it.

Is there something I need to try with it before selling it?

I had read up its issues before buying it and I seriously thought I could live with it but I can't get used to the following (coming from using a Nikon D700):

  • The parallax in the OVF; I've yet to get used to the difference in the viewfinder and the captured image. I'm still not able to estimate it.
  • The focus is hard to pinpoint in OVF.
  • The focus is slow (I'm on fw 1.3).
  • The EVF has a very very slight but noticeable lag (just like any electronic vf). What bugs me is how it view blacks out when an image is taken.

Am I missing something? Should I give it more time?

Basically, I bought it to use in place of the D700+35mm prime for doing street photography.
