Very true Martin, very true! Here I am sold on getting the FA31 for my Pentax - I have drooled over this lens for far too many years....and it now has be in its grasp - and out the other end will pop the Sigma DP2 once a suitable buyer can be found But when I look at the price on my FA lens, and then look at what's written on the ticket of an X100, then I get a little hesitant. Seeing the outputs from some folks makes me wonder whether I can just do with the x100 for the same price. But I am going to be strong....STRONG! BB, Don and co, you will not win!I think Im sorted for a compact for the moment - the problem with this site is that it is all too easy to get sucked in to wanting more gear than I actually need
But I'm glad you're happy with the s95. It's an addictive little unit really. Be nice with a VF, but then it might not fit in my Levis.
Couldn't agree more Lili. But its funny that as much as I love using the s95, I do lament when I'm back at the computer saying"That shot worked, butif only I'd shot it with the Dp2 or Kr..." Its just amazing what more you can pull out of the data from the bigger sensor. Hence, why the s95 will always be called the Sketchbook....as the GRDII was before it.I am not advocating dumping the DSLR's; quite the opposite. I just find the latest series of fast glass compacts have much to commend them.
Jono, how about the GRD mate?Do you want a zoom lens?
If the answer is yes, then the latest breed of high quality compacts is the only answer.
