I think 1.02 seems better inside in low light. It definitely hunts less.

I've just come back from Iceland where the Fuji X100S did itself proud!

Yes it was intimidating relying only on the Fuji, but at no time did I wish for my now sold Canon 5DII with multiple L lenses. It just needed a different approach. Yes it was a challenge but what fun!

We flew in late Friday gone. Hired a 4X4, visited the blue lagoon, then on to Reykjavik to the hotel.

Saturday saw a mammoth 800K drive round the southern end of Iceland literally flying through the 'Must See' Sights, including a desolate drive via GPS to the now infamousc wartime DC3.

Back to Reykjavik for the night before flying back home today. So literally 24hrs in Iceland.
I've only had the X100S three weeks and still getting used to the Fuji 'Way' of operating.

An amazing bit of kit!

If anyone is contemplating a visit to the land of Fire and Ice, just do it! You won't be prepared for what you see!

Here is a taster. More pictures to follow on my flickr page once recuperated..lol

Should be going on vacation there soon.

I've recently returned from a trip to Queenstown, New Zealand. I took a Fuji X100S, Nikon D800E and assorted lenses (21mm, 50mm and 85mm).

I am liking, if not preferring, many of the Fuji shots and it may be that the focal length (35 equivalent) is a better match for how I 'see'.

This shot from the shore of Lake Wakatipu.

Thanks Jericobot. The light in NZ has a nice, soft quality to it, and the X100/S is the duck's nuts.
