Do you or would you use an X100/X100S/X100T as your only camera?

Well given that you currently only shoot from 14-23mm, I think you'd be fine with the X100T and converter.

Honestly though, I think the problem is your lens choice. You have too many lenses with similar focal lengths. It's quite obvious that the best lens at that focal length (given your keeper rate) is the X100T. Sell the other two (XF 23/1.4 and Rokinon 21/1.4) and purchase a zoom or a short tele like the XF 56/1.2. That will give you two cameras with two different purposes.

Actually, my lens choice is what I like and use after 60 years of shooting with primes. I started out with 50mm lenses because they were the kit lenses at one time and gravitated to 35mm lenses. With Fuji, anything I bought longer than 23mm has gone largely unused and then sold. The 23mm is a replacement for the Rokinon and my  intent is to sell the Rokinon and just go with the 14mm and 23mm. As for zooms, I have nothing against them but I discovered I'm just not a zoom guy. When I had my E-M10, I bought the Olympus 12-40 f2.8 Pro and the Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8. They were the only lenses I used for six months. My biggest problem was I still kept zooming with my feet, plus like my other long lenses, the 35-100mm saw very little use.

But, if I buy, the X100T again, I will put the X-E2 kit on the shelf and when I'm sure the X100T alone, works for me, I will sell everything. --
