But, I use my 5D2+35/1.4L almost exclusively for personal shooting ... I'm sure that's not true for everyone.

Hell, that's probably what I would do if I had the money for a 35L. At the moment, though, I'd need to sell every other lens I've got to get one!

If they can't produce products fast enough to stay up with demand they are not going anywhere. To hold back if that is what they are doing is silly with technology because it changes so fast. Soon there will be a better version out there and it is likely that it will not be a Fuji. Don't get me wrong I still want one but as time passes I realize that it's eating into it's short lived life.
If I owned the X100 now and something better came out I would just make due with what I had but because I don't have one I would spend the money on the newer better camera.
I just hope Canon is paying attention and feels like making something like this in the near future.

I am just mad because I am taking a short trip soon and I would like to have a X100 like you, but I don't. I guess I will bring the heavy.

Have any of you lucky X100 owners actually gotten it as a replacement for your SLR system? I have this small, yet relatively vocal part of me that says "Psst. Sell everything, get an X100, and put the rest of your money toward other pursuits." I would miss the IQ of my current setup ever so much...but I wouldn't miss the size and weight!

Seriously though, the likelihood of that happening is just about zilch...but I can't completely shake the idea.

i don't own a x100 YET, but i can't see myself selling off all my DSLR equipment. keep in mind, each camera serves different purposes.

I'm seriously thinking this too. I don't have much time for photography (ie weddings and strobist stuff) and thinking maybe it would be better to just have a x100 with me at all times.

If you aren't going to be printing and only posting pictures online of travels and just daily life, does it make sense to sell gear and buy an x100?

It does make sense. In fact I am selling my Nikon gears, 24 1.4, Sigma 85 1.4. Even primes are heavy if you add them up. Getting a X100, and Pentax and couple pentax primes for the light weight. 2 lens from pentax are just 12 OZ. My vacation gear is going to be 3 lbs total!!! And in the city I am just going to shoot with X100.

Don't even worry about printing...the IQ from the X100 is fantastic and should handle even 20x30s very well.

By the way, I was just thinking...I hope that the X100's success inspires somebody to make a fast, 22mm APS-C prime. A 22/1.8 maybe. That would be awesome, and totally doable at a reasonable size given the fact that it doesn't need to cover a FF image circle.

Hey guys, got my x100 and used it for a few days.

Love it.

Heres a quick random shot :

IMAGE: http://fc09.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2011/219/9/e/lost_gardener_01_by_saintcase-d45sfa0.jpg

i have to say, i am changing my style for this camera a little bit, i no longer care about technical details just the subject matter and artistic style, i normally don't do any heavy PP or effects but i love it with this camera, i am also leaving auto iso on, and av mode, i usually loosely frame in OVF, but if i get annoyed or want some specific lines i'll just switch to the EVF, i keep my VFs usually pretty empty of all the info though and last but not least i'm leaving it in JPG :D

Its a fun camera for me and will likely stay on my side more then my 5d2. I would have to pick the 5d2 if i could only have one of them though, but its a nice addition.

That being said, i am having a hard time with the accessories, what the hell, 100$ for a thumb hold hotshoe adapter? Kidding me? 150$ for letting me use filters and a hood?!?!? 200$ For a case??

I managed to hunt down a filter adapter and lens hood for 50$ or so, which is about as much i would ever be willing to pay, but i can't find a pleasing case for it :( I would like something where i can hide the LCD and back buttons and just pretend its a film camera, but all the ones i saw were above 100$, the cheap 25$ ones all have a cutout for the LCD, which i do not want.

If anyone finds such a case let me know!

I think im gonna hunt down a broken down film camera with a thumb rewind drive and just rip that apart for my x100, i need something, the grip is pathetic on it, but i am not shelling out that much for such a simple and tiny product.

Feel free to call me Case.

Instead of the $150 lens hood from fujifilm...

It looks like it's out of stock at the moment... but it's an adapter + leica style hood. It's pretty sweet.

How are you guys finding the night performance, especially when it comes to pin point light sources? Are the halos apparent or was that one or two bad copies floating around?
