Don't forget the X20 (and X10).
Fair enough - you're basically telling us what YOUR priorities are for a camera and how the X100s meets them and does so far more effectively than the other options out there. No problem with this at all. It was just calling other cameras toys and not real cameras that got me riled with your earlier post.I have no intention of starting flame wars in this 'civilized' forum. I am just saying that you have mentioned lots of other cameras as competition to the x-100s, I strongly disagree with that assessment. There are so many factors that make the x-100s unique when compared to the other solutions out there....
-size to iq ratio
The Sony rx1 might have great iq, but having an electronic viewfinder dongle on top makes it less of a compact solution when compared to the x-100s.
M4/3, nex, canon m, panasonic g, samsung nx, not really..................
-hybrid viewfinder, you are right, I would love to have a Leica or an x-pro1 but for daily use the x-100s offers the best of both worlds and works better for my needs.
-ergonomics and controls, Fuji/Leica vs the rest.....
The original x-100 sold a lot because it was unique and people were hungry for its size/iq... a lot of those people discovered that the camera did not meet there needs after a while.... Move forward.... Maybe the x-100s will sell less but the crowd is more mature and savvy now.... all logical, The market now has more offerings, but there is nothing close to the x-100s proposition! In short, someone looking at m4/3, nex, xe-1 or even the Rx-1 has very different priorities than a potential x-100s buyer....
Ps: I have a tiny minimalist belt case for the x-100s, I wish I could fit an x-pro1 there and enjoy the same experience, size does matter for some...

Another way of saying "...I strongly disagree with that assessment" would be "...those cameras are not competition to the X100s for me". Those two little words "for me" prevent a lot of nonsense arguments in forums.
Are you advising me on how to phrase my words/language?!! I am just passionate about the X-100s and i do not think the other cameras are a fair comparison, why will that trigger "nonsense arguments". I personally hate DPR for the amount of trolls there and have no interest other than having a healthy discussion NOT an argument, comparing the X-100s to those cameras is like apples to oranges "FOR ME?!" This is the first time that an Admin advise me on how to phrase my words. For me photography is about fast composition and framing, so "For me obviously" those view-finderless cameras are toys. Sorry again
hmm! i wish the X-100s came in 50mm for streets! i once had the nikon 28mm 1.4, great lens for low light, but i did not have the courage to get too close to my subjects on the streets! for a big guy like me 28mm means getting too close and intimidating! I value and respect that some people can shoot without viewfinders, "for me" the experience is about seeing the world intimately through the camera, and a tiny bit outside of the frame in anticipation for the action...
I just acquired the X100S. I haven't had any time to become acquainted with the camera yet, but my initial take is that this is a camera that knows what it is ... what it was meant to be and is true to itself and to its design.
I have a lot of learning to for proficiency, but I have never felt so pleased with a camera since the Nikon F.
