If you HAD to get rid of one, which would it be? Why? The reason I ask is, both occupy slightly different niches. However, both of them seem to at least address part of the niche that the other occupies. In late January/early February, due to a windfall, I should be able to buy one, but not both. And I'm trying to get a perspective on overall usability for a street, found image, type photographer. I don't shoot much in the way of action, but would likely use the camera to take photos of the grandchildren. I also like to shoot panorama landscapes occasionally. And both would likely find themselves tossed into the leather saddlebags of my motorcycle. This isn't (at least totally) about Image quality, I assume the X100 is superior in that case. But I am looking for all sorts of 'unquantifiable' qualities/handicaps they offer. My Olympus E30, and My elderly Canon G3 offer fully articulated viewscreens which I like to use on occasion. Has this lack been much of an issue for either? Can either stand up to the sort of vibration found on a Cruiser type motorcycle?
