    Thank you, Amin!

    I hope this time I won't be so confused as to the "how to" of updating. It's going to be interesting to see what's in store with the updates.

    I have up to this point avoided buying the X100, rationalizing my choice with the need for a big firmware update as well as my reluctance to give up the multiple lens flexibility that my EPL1 offers. Having just returned from 11 days in Paris where I shot just over 1000 pics lol, I just realized that I never removed my 20mm 1.7 the entire trip. I never once said to myself "I need to go in my bag for another lens". Now I'm thinking perhaps I have over rated the necessity (or my desire) for multiple lenses. Hmmmmm..... certainly gives me food for thought, especially if this firmware update is a great one.

    Sounds almost exactly like me kev! E-pl1 + 20/1.7 for me before I made the jump to the X100.

    Whilst I can guarantee you won't have problems getting used to the setup, I can't say you won't be back to m43... Case in point, my x100 is up for sale and I have a new g3 on order :) (i kept my 20/1.7, guess I knew this would happen...)

    It's a hard song to resist. I could easily be tempted. I would want to have a multiple lens system too. We shall see. This firmware update might do the trick...

    I have no time for those dinosaurs.
    My subject matter confuses me enough, I don't need lenses doing the same....
    Those things are ok if ya like that sorta high falutin' technology...

    Well, I am interested in the X100. It suits one of the core styles I like to shoot. We shall see.

    Wouldn't it be great if camera manufacturers had a website that allowed for input/suggestions from customers? And this is separate and apart from a customer service email or phone.
