    Being a longtime Nikon user I have put all my dslr gear on eBay and ordered a Fujifilm X100S. Next, once the Nikon cash comes in, I'm getting an X-E2. I'm really looking forward to going smaller & lighter.

    Just letting the world know.

    I'm one gen behind you and my photos only suffer from my lack of skill. I shoot with an X100 and an X-E1 and need noting else.

    Enjoy your new lighter kit.

    2 years and 30,000 shots in on an X100 here, and still in love. They're quirky, but they also do some things better than just about anyone. Hope you fall in love too.

    Currently having the trio of X-Pro1, X100s and X20, I can honestly say I've never been more content with the equipment I have now. So happy still with the X-Pro1 that I'm yet to be tempted by all the fine mirrorless gear around right now. Enjoy your new kit!

    'Sounds like a great move, Mike. I recently sold all my Canon gear and am shooting just on Fuji now. No regrets so far.
    'Looking forward to seeing some images from you and your new XE-2. Good luck.

    Rethinking X-E2. X-E1 and new pricing is tempting my fiscal responsibility. Stand by.

    In the meantime, first walk through our Colorado mountain town and here are two samples from my first "roll" with the X100S. Shot on manual and pre-focused. Processed using Aperture 3 and VSCO.

    Those have a nice washed out texture to them. Very nice. And good lord, those deer.

    Thanks KillRamsey! I like the things you can do with VSCO. We buy good glass and sensors and then degrade it all in processing. Fits the retro-esque of the camera though. And yes, we have deer!
