Re: S5 viability for an X Pro1 guy?

I have the XPro 1 and and S5 amongst several other cameras. I keep the S5 just for portraits and for flower photography. I have mentioned this before, my wife who is a bit vain and knows little about cameras still insists I only use the S5 or the older S3 to take photos of her. In the 100 to 400 ISO range the colours and skin tones are beautiful and the DR is still at the top of the heap IMO. I also have the 28mm f2.8 AIS and it works very well with the S5. JPEG photos are excellent just liek the Xpro1. If you can get a cheapie then why not. Even if you resell later on you are not going to lose much money.
