Yeah you think you don't actually need one while you own it. ... And then it's gone. .. And you realize just how much you miss it. The x100 is more a philosophy than just a camera. It really is the most self contained and self reflective that I've been with a camera.What's with the X100, that folk love it, but can't live with/without it? I've wanted one for a long time, but do not think, I could get along with the simi-wide FOV, as a everything camera. And because I subscribe to the only one gun, philosophy, I just never seriously sought one. But wheeee, they sure do tick some buttons for me.
