Really?

I do not light those cameras at all, although, they are priced really good!

The NX100 is what I'd probably be after (though I might consider a bigger investment in an NX200 when it arrives, if it's a big enough improvement). The drawback is obvious; poor high ISO noise levels. But there are a bunch of positives; two (i.e. better than a Rebel) control dials/wheels in very Canonesque locations, plus a third if you're using an i-Function lens; an excellent LCD that is very suited to a Clearviewer; much better lens lineup than Sony's, including one decent pancake (20mm) and one excellent pancake (30mm) that appears to beat even the Panny 20/1.7. Not to mention that after some eBay wheeling and dealing the, NX100 body can probably be had for around $175!

Of course, I'd probably get pretty dissatisfied pretty quickly, and wind up plunking the money on an X100 mark II...

^ if you have the cash for it, do it.... it's an amazing camera and you will not regret it....

I have no doubt that it is a great camera. I have yet to see a negative review of it.

But what I'm interested in knowing, is if it will be a good alternative to a 60D. As I said, I would not like my "non work" camera, to not be able to be used for work, if the need arises. I'm a very practically minded person, so while having separate cameras for work and play makes sense to me, having those two categories be mutually exclusive, does not.

I hope that makes sense.

While it seems that the X100 is extremely popular the world over, I have never seen one in real life. It doesn't seem to be as popular here. I have never met someone who owns one, and haven't even seen it in any of the stores where I usually shop. It's available in Danish online stores, but apparently quite rare in physical stores :confused:

It's hugely popular, sure, but it's not like a Justin Bieber CD. Millions of people might want one, but if they've only produced, say, 100,000 of them so far (less? who knows), they're not exactly going to be prolific. I've only seen one in real life, when I was in Belgium earlier in the year. Not a single time after that.

From what you've described, I feel 100% confident in telling you to get this camera. It will take care of all of your needs, and you will be forever happy with it :)

How about this camera against the Oly EP-3?

E-P3 is faster in use (single-shot AF is very fast and accurate) and has the benefit of interchangeable lenses. X100 has better image quality and shallower depth of field than E-P3 + native m4/3 lens at 35mm equivalent or thereabouts, plus a built-in viewfinder.

They might both be small-ish cameras but are quite different with very little overlap in terms of appeal aside from their small size.

Thanks Yohan. I'm also wondering if the new Voigtlander 25 0.95 will work on the Fuji. Do you have an idea if it does?

The Fuji's a fixed-lens camera! I think you've been spending too much time in Leicaland :D

darktiger,

Beautiful portraits. A teeny tiny bit more light on the background to separate the woman's dark hair from the dark background (especially in the B&W) would make those perfect I think. You're really making the X100 sing!
