Those are really pretty. I am in Southern California and it has been 80 degrees and summer like. I miss the East Coast and want to go home! I had the OMD also, with the nicest lenses M43 had to offer, and it was a great setup, but your wife is right, and it vexes me to no end that I am unable to articulate what is so special about the Fuji images, but it is there, and we do enjoy it, so I shoot only on my X100 and X Pro 1's now.

Well, I am thinking about it. I also have the complete m4/3 set up and I know that one loses  money selling the gear. I do not know if I can take the burden right now. Even when my wife loves the X100 it is going to be difficult to justify the expense again, last year I sold all my Nikon gear to switch to m4/3. Unfortunately Fuji was not in the horizon for me at that time...

I have found that the IBIS in the OMD is quite impressive. That is what is one of the reasons preventing me to switch to X1-Pro in addition to autofocus speed.

Do you miss the IBIS now that you shoot with X1-PRO?

Thanks for your comments!
