the x100s is now a front runner..I like leaf shutter and high flash sync speeds that it brings to the the inbuilt 3 stop ND only concern is the fixed 28mm lens ( 35mm on ff)...not really a people portrait lens concerned it will distort people's features too much for a decent head and shoulders image ?

x100s is awesome.

  • leaf shutter and super fast flash sync in daylight for fill. Most folks don't get this but it's great
  • ND filter, as you said, let's you shoot at F2 or 2.8 in bright sun for shallow DOF if desired
  • Macro mode is pretty darn good and beats not having it
  • Manual focus peaking is really nice


  • IQ is great though soft at F2.( F2.8 and up are great)
  • AF is not as fast as DSLR, but perfectly fine

I personally don't find a problem of distortion as a 35mm equiv. I will try to share a couple images later (not on my main PC at moment).

Note: it's a 23mm lens, not 28... and they have two add on lenses that turn it into a  28 and 50mm FF equiv but not sure if the 50 is out yet.  So that's an option to explore.

It's in my coat pocket, briefcase or backpack all the time.
