Re: XE1+35mm vs Leica M Monochrom + Lux 50

Prior to buying my XE1 I was lusting for a Leica, even the MM, but I knew it was not something I could possibly afford. I was not happy with Nikon not updating my D300 so I researched other camera companies and came upon the X-Pro1 and then the XE1. I now own the XE1 and post like this helped cure my 'lust for Leica' disease.

It has been mentioned a few times on this thread that Fuji shooters seems to shoot more B&W than other cameras, the above test shots help to understand why. Side-by-side one can say one is better than the other, but if either is viewed alone one can find nothing lacking.
