X-S1 in Florida for 3 months

Back in Toronto from winter in Florida where I had the opportunity to purchase the X-S1 from Amazon at an excellent price in early January. Camera was new and came sealed in an obviously unopened box.

I am really pleased with the results for a camera with such a range of wide angle to tele reach. I also find the camera's jpg rendition to be pretty amazing and thus have not even been tempted to use raw as I always do with my Nikons.

Having had severe neck and shoulder pain for months (lots of massage and physio therapy), the lighter weight compared to my Nikon dSLRs was a treat and made the camera a "go-to" for much walk around use.

What I miss from my dSLRs are the speed of focus acquisition and tracking especially with birds in flight and the obvious resolution and other differences of such a small sensor.

So that said, here are photos from three months of use ... and a glimpse of an early April Spring day that is way behind the norm in Toronto.
