    Moving (albeit slowly) from long time Canon DSLR lover (5DmkIII) to Fuji X100s.
    One of my main interests is IR and I was delighted to find several new posts on the subject using the X100.
    My X100s is a new acquisition and I am learning a craft all over again - with a fixed focal length lens. It's very exciting!!!

    I have to say that I feel I will keep the Canon and lenses for those "particular" situations.

    Hope to post some trial pics soon.

    Welcome, Peter. Keep the DSLR, you will still want/need it at times. I've nearly sold mine several times but know I would regret.

    I am not called Peter and I do not come from Frimley (but I did go there once).

    Welcome anyway,

    Welcome to the we just bought an x100s club. And welcome to SC! Like you I have companioned the X100s to my Canon DSLR (only a 450D- so still crop) as well. And for the same reasons I intend to keep it, tele shots, macro shots, whatever the X can't give me. Right now though I am content with shooting only the X, exploring and learning it. :)
