Re: sold my ff gear..what next ?

to be honest anything less than the D800 that I owned with the trinity of F2.8 glass and 50mm1.8 prime is a step backwards....but now my photography is taking a backseat to all the other things in my life right now I could get used to a much simpler set up doesn't get much simpler than a fixed lens I guess...but yes a zoom would be helpful.

just been looking through flicker at sample x100s does look like a tight ii camera head shot will give me the land of big noses and perhaps this isnt the camera for me...

Opting at this point for a fixed lens seems like a real step backwards. Maybe it's what your inner photographer has been lusting for all this time "and look, Martha, only one focal length! How cool and liberating!!" but it would drive me nuts. Lots of choices out there with at least a 3x optical zoom.
