Thanks! The tonal adjustments are all done in post processing using either my own tweaks in LR4 or VSCO Film preset software with further tweaks made in LR.

They have a 'Portra' look to them.
Actually the film stock emulation I based these on was Fuji FP-100c. Despite offering quite a few film stock presets in the software, this is really the only one I've been using. I've yet to really delve into the software as I've been content to just do everything manually in LR up to this point. The presets certainly aren't the one-click affairs they purport to be and often require quite a bit of massaging to get the look you want. If I'm going to make that effort I may as well just do the whole thing. Still, they can offer a good starting point for those not necessarily into using LR's curves, toning and luminance tools. I plan to play with them for a while and see if they make life easier. I definitely like the look I'm generally getting with the Fuji FP-100c.

Looks good. I still shoot film, so the film emulation idea is quite interesting to me.

I know it's all down to personal taste with processing. I'm not at all keen on the misty low contrast look.
I think if i could afford such a beast i would be trying to squeeze every drop of bite out of this sensor.

Certainly PP is always going to be down to personal taste. I do see why some may object to the look seeing as it may not maximize the DR of the sensor and does drop a lot of detail in the shadows, but I like it for my personal photos. The X100s for me is much more about form factor and shooting experience than IQ, DR or the other stuff. Still I'm very pleased with both what the camera gives me in the RAW files and with what I'm able to do with them. If I were doing paid work I would take a completely different approach to the PP that would most likely be more traditional and focus on preserving more detail throughout the entire image.

it doesn't always have to be pixel-sharp. these are actually one of my favourite looks. reminds me of a fashion photography style in editorial work.
