No. Boring

This would be a lovely camera wouldn't it?

I've found the 50mm equivalent focal length, while being a natural perspective, is sort of boring --- I have to work a little harder to make images interesting with it.  I can't get as close to subjects like I could with the 35mm equivalent, while not being telephoto enough to able to stand farther back or take advantage of a portrait lens' qualities.

I rather have a 85 to 100mm focal length equivalent to complement the current X100s or a X100s that was natively 28mm equivalent.

Sort of like what Sigma did with the DP Merrill.
