After doing lots of research, I finally pulled the trigger on an all purpose everyday camera. I have been looking for something smaller than a DSLR but more manual than a point and shoot or my iPhone and this is perfect.
This model was a little more expensive than its predecessor, the X100S, but it had a few features that I felt were worth the extra $$.
1. More accurate and much faster focus
2. Better button layout
3. Wifi enabled
4. Improved viewfinder
5. Manual video options
6. Better battery
I watched a couple YouTube videos to learn how to use this guy and here are some photos I have taken over the first 24 hours. So far I am loving it and I will post more photos here and on Flickr if you want to see more.
