So after 4 long month of self debating, finally, I did it. Got me a x100s. Damn it is sexy, and feels so right in the hand.

The quick snapshots I took already look so good.

But I can see it is going to be a steep learning curve.

Time to bury my head in the manual.

It comes pretty quickly. The manual is actually quite good, and a quick read.

I got some questions for the x100s users.

In optical mode, a lot of pictures are out of focus, I find that I have to use the digital more often.

And when using the focus peaking, any ways to not having it zoom in, can't find the way outbid it.

I almost always use the OVF (apart from the seldom macro shot) and find no real issue with the focus. Sometimes it struggles when the subject is harshly backlit, but otherwise pretty damn accurate.
I wouldn't know about your second request...

I had a bunch of out of focus shots when I first got mine using the OVF, simply because you can't tell if it's in focus on what you actually wanted to focus on. Coming from a DSLR, it was misleading. It all looks nice and sharp in the OVF! Some say use the EVF for close objects, OVF for landscapes and such. You'll also find the OVF frame lines are an approximation of your shot, whereas the EVF is more like a DSLR's finder.

You sort of just get better at focus and recompose and thinking in the back of your mind "make sure this is actually focused on what I want" with a few times out with it.

As far as I know, focus peaking and split screen focus will both cause the zoom-in feature. I don't know of a way to disable that

Also note that in MF mode, the AE-L/AF-L button can be used for back-button focus.

Yes, some how, if too close it looks in focus but once the picture taken, it's the background that is.
In the 9hours I have had it it already shows 600 shutter counts lol.

Love it !

A few X100S shots from my trip to Africa. The only processing done is cropping (I shoot in jpg mode).

Here's a few i took inside a car museum that was connected to a venue I was playing a show at. Horrible lighting but the X-E1 still did a pretty good job. All with the 18-55.

This was a jpeg. I did some saturation and contrast in LR and I focused the light using the radiant filter in LR 5. Other wise it was a pretty boring looking photo. The room was lit with fluorescents so the lighting was pretty bad.

Nice. Were you using a polarizer?

After finding myself walking around with just my 5DmkII and the 40mm pancake in my purse and finding that to be 'enough'. I decided I didn't really 'need' it anymore nor all the rest of the gear sitting in my bag.
SO after hunting around for what mirrorless system I wanted I fell in love with the X-E1 and with the work everyone is creating with it.
I should have my shiny new camera this week. :cool:

Question, does anyone find they 'benefit' from having a halfcase on the camera, or does it change the 'feel' of the camera in any way, for the better or other wise?

Thank you.
