Last week I had an opportunity take the X100 to Ottawa and try it out. We did some walking around the Byward Markets and up to the Parliament House, and I snapped as I went. This type of photography sees the X100 in its element. The camera is small, quiet compact and subtle; allowing quick shots you`d never get hauling around a pro D-SLR like a D3 with a 24-70mm f2.8 lens. The focus is fast, the optical viewfinder is excellent, and image quality stunning. The 35mm equivalent lens is the right focal length for wandering around and I never felt like I needed a zoom. Truly a joy to use.
