Re: X100s or X Pro-1 + XF 35mm 1.4

EDIT: Oops I misread your original post. The 35mm f1.4 will have pretty similar focal length and DOF compared to your AE-1 with the 50mm so you should be able to figure out for yourself what you want - do you want something wider than a 50mm equivalent lens more than you'd miss the extra DOF control when using a 35mm equivalent lens?

For me 50mm eqv is too claustrophobic when walking around normally, and 35mm eqv is pretty much the perfect fixed focal length. The X100 has enough DOF control at f/2.0 to make me happy as well. But this is very much a matter of personal preference, either of these two choices will have compromises compared to the other.
