Sorry, I didn't see your post. Got lost in the excitement. I will def opt to save some green. This isn't my main body, it is just going to be my walk around/travel/street/extension of my right hand/my version of google glass camera.
Thank you everyone for all your input. Hope to be posting more in this thread soon!
You've gotten some great advice, I'm glad you decided on the X100. As good as the EVF is, I prefer using the OVF. It just continues the theme of the X100 becoming almost an "extension" of yourself. With the dials I can set up exposure without raising the camera. And then if I see a shot I like, I just raise the camera to my eye. Right eye in the OVF continues my vision of the world, my left eye allows me get an idea what's coming in/out of the frame. And then just take the picture.
It's also interesting how I'm starting to see photography in 35mm terms since using this camera. I can definitely see why some people advocate the 1-camera 1-lens approach. I have a very good idea of framing now even before raising the camera to take a shot. Funny thing is I shot with my 6D and 50mm 1.8 over the weekend, and it was starting to feel tight, although 50mm used to be my favorite focal length! Not sure if this is a good or bad thing though.
Anyways, as you can see, I'm a big fan of the X100s.
