As I mentioned in a previous post, the X100 is a very versatile camera , but there is one situation where it will just not work, and that's for telephoto shots. The only way you can make it work is to shoot and just hope there is enough resolution to pick up the subject. This was the case when this ground hog appeared on the front 'lawn' of a house a few doors up. he wouldn't let me get very close, so I had to shoot and hope. I would say I was partially successful.
