    Greetings from Dortmund, home of the German Bundesliga champions! I'm a retired IT exec who takes photos of family, social events and travel - typical amateur snapshot level.

    I hate badly exposed, badly framed or badly focussed photos, though, so I use a D7000 and just recently added an X100. Haven't really had a chance to use it yet, since I landed in hospital just after buying it :) - nothing serious ...

    Very informative forum here, thanks to all for helping my decision

    Austria, here we come (me and my X100!)

    Thanks for the good wishes! I should be out by Tuesday, then practice a little. Then it' off to Carinthia (Kärnten) at the end of July. Hope to bring back some good photos!

    Hello and welcome BigTam - funnily I too was in hospital when my X100 arrived. Hope your recovery is swift.

    Nurses?

    Do you like photos of women with no make-up in baggy, unflattering dark-blue scrubs with rubber clogs? Just asking :)

    Besides, I didn't have my X100 with me. At the moment, I'm still trying to find the best reason to convince my wife that it was a bargain ....

    BTW, out of hospital now, everything OK.

    Big Tam, I'm relieved to hear all is well!:thumbup:

    The X100 is a bargain! Just add up how much a really good camera body with fantastic IQ and excellent lens costs!:biggrin:

    Welcome. Tell your wife the alternative to the X100 would be a M8 with Summicron 28mm with no af, movie, panorama or different film modes. And she will consider you a smart shopper::biggrin:
