Well for me its like this.

I love both pentax and fuji but hate having two systems as i tend mirror them with the same lenses and focal lengths and that gets too bloody expensive. Later i would sell my pentax to flesh out a fuji system, after which id miss the pentax and sell the fuji..and so on.

I'm beginning to think this is some type of digital plague manifested by frequent attacks of GAS. After over fifty years of shooting with film I began my 3.5 year digital existence with Panasonic, then went to Fuji, then back to micro 4/3 but with Olympus, Did Olympus and Nikon 1 together to really drive myself nuts, dumped the Nikon 1 and added Panasonic back into the mix, and now back to Fuji.

So in the end i decided to stay with oentax for my system solution and get an x100s so i wont have to buy lenses for it.

In the worse case scenario, two conversion lenses and your done.

I love the x100s, for me its very special and a big part of it, i realised, was the hybrid view finder. i also feel liberated by using just its fixed lens - granted its not suitable for everything. if i plan something serious id take the pentax but if not I'd almost always grab the x100s instead of the dslr, but even if i take the pentax, id put the x100 in a corner of the bag, just in case.
