Following a recent trip to Chile, I thought about the missing photographic tool in my bag. I have a decent Pentax K5, three primes (15mm, 35mm and 77mm) and a 55 to 300mm zoom. I got excellent photos of the scenery, but had to rely on my Canon S90 for more discrete shots or even my iPhone.
This lead me to look at what other options might exist that have similar quality to the K5, but are more discrete. I looked at the Olympus epl5 and the new Panasonic GF6. I would prefer an optical finder and am willing to use a pancake prime to cut down on the size. Then I started reading about the Fuji X100s. This seems to be the digital AF equivalent of my previously owned Fuji GS645 medium format camera that had a 60mm lens. I traveled extensively with this camera and a backup 35mm film compact with zoom lens. The X100s has been getting rave reviews online. I am hoping to get my hands on one and see if the camera lives up to the hype.
