Any x100/s using the wide angle kit? How good/bad is it?
I keep finding mixed or fan boys reviews.

Guys, I'm using the X20 and mostly shoot in raw and process in LR.

I'm having a hard time with white balance woes and I can never get the raw files to look 'right' despite being able to tweak WB. I'm about to give up and shoot jpeg entirely, if not get rid of the x20 for the EOS M :(

The jpegs, on the other hand, dont look as crisp in detail but the WB together with film simulation colours look quite amazing.

Is there a way where I can get the best of both worlds?

the converter is the biggest PITA to use in practice... You have to remove the front threaded ring and basically stop using it. It threads on the exposed threads. It's VERY fidly. I've honestly switched to using the XE1 with the 18mm because I like the FOV but I can NOT stand the adapted lens aspect. It's just so mickey mouse. IQ is pretty darn good though.

not much of a PITA IMO, it's like changing lens to a DSLR but instead of removing a lens, you unscrew the front ring and screw in the converter.
but I use the converter only for landscape, for street and day use it's always 35mm FOV for me. no loss of IQ with the converter.
only thing I don't like is that often I forget going back to the Menu and turning on/off the wide angle conversion setting

Some shots of Korea with the Fujifilm X-Pro1. Still traveling. Also did bring my 5DIII but using the Fuji more and more. Really enjoy shooting with it.

that's the thing though, it's MORE of a PITA than screwing on a filter onto a DSLR lens IMHO and that's enough of a hassle I'm 100% panel in my filter collection now. And that's for landscapes. I also agree on the mode thing. It only does correction which doesn't work with LR and RAWs anyway, so I don't really use it but the focal length tag being correct is nice... The PITA level with the lens will very much be up to the person using it. but it IS more of a hassle than a DSLR lens change to be honest. But the bonus is no worries about dust which could be huge while traveling (at least dust on the sensor).

Great photos! Where in Korea have you traveled to? I just spent a year living there and absolutely fell in love with it. Wish I had my x100 at the time.

no sensor dust is why the x100/s won my heart over interchangeable mirrorless cameras

For those looking for the x100s, lots available in Japan (if you have contacts there). And, very competitive prices! A friend just picked me up one for ~$1090 (at current conversion rates)! Plus, duty free!
