    Buying the x100s, E-M5 and GH3 has definitely reignited my passion for photography, as I can actually carry around my gear without ending up with a backache! I’ve never tried the XP1, but you’ve piqued my curiosity. :-)

    I’m looking into the new X100s … spend any time with that one?

    I totally agree that feeling of new gear can breathe life into photography, just not convinced my next camera should have a whole new lens system to invest in. I wanted that old and new feel too so now my new D800 now wears an AI’d 50 Nikkor-S 1.4.

    What’s the bag in the background?

    I’m so glad you found something you love (and not just because it means you won’t be talking about it on the podcast anymore)! ;) The noise results are impressive, and I love that it makes you slow down like you would when shooting film, but with the immediacy of digital.

    This is great to hear! I’m more excited for the x20 now. (if I go through with it). Wish I could afford the pro series, but will be nice to have a lightweight travel camera that isn’t my iPhone. Great article and nice images. So crisp and so film-like.

    An excellent piece, thanks for that. I’m approaching my first anniversary with the XP1 and am very happy with it. Most of the material on my site was shot with the XP1 and the 18mm lens.) The lauded 35mm lens (50mm equivalent) is my next purchase.

    i think you will really like the hybrid viewfinder. I loved my x100 but I drowned it. I now use a NEX-7 with EVF. I am not wild about EVF except where precise framing is required. Wish it had a OVF like the XP1 which I would use most of the time.

    Totally agree with you, it’s not a camera for everyone but I really like it, it slows me down and really look at the scene. The thumbs up was also the first item I bought for my FUJIFILM X-Pro1 (already had one on my X100).
    Great article!
