    Lol... It's not, I love my X100 and OM-D both, just differently...

    Snap - I also love my OMD & X100, 2 great cameras that are fun to use and good in different ways!

    So this is a serious inquiry, not an effort to start an argument. I've been very interested in the X100s, but every time I consider buying one, I have trouble answering the question, why not just use my OMD with Panasonic 20mm f/1.7? The one thing I've come up with is that the high sync speed permitted by the leaf shutter would allow some use of daylight flash that I can't do with the OMD, but so far, that hasn't been enough to justify the purchase of an entirely new camera. (I don't do much daylight flash.)

    Help me out here: fathers' day is around the corner!

    So I toyed with the idea of upgrading to the S but I have an XE-1 and it's essentially the same sensor. The leaf shutter is awesome for high speed sync and a fixed 35mm F/2 is amazing but it's not for everybody. 35mm is my favorite Focal length, so I'd compare it to the 17mm 1.8

    I have the old X100 and I do a lot of street type shooting with it and fill flash with the built in ND filter produces amazing results.

    Yesterday on my daughters field trip as usual I had both and I shot primarily with the X100 and had the OM-D with the 25 mounted for a few shots..

    There is just something about the X100 that no other digital body has done for me, can't explain it.. I didn't upgrade to the S because the X-E1 IQ to me isn't the same as the X100. I think it will be the first body that I never sell

    I haven't used the 20mm in years, and I remember selling it because AF on the GF1 and EP2 was horrible and slow.

    I've always been fond of Fuji - I love the colors and IQ. I'm sticking with :43: now because I have a good bit invested in lenses and I would prefer to spend money on an UWA or the 75mm than invest in another camera. Great shots!:thumbup:

    Love it!!! I don't like getting into this or that threads, everybody is different and everybody has different styles. Since I got the XE-1 I almost stopped using my 5D2 completely, then with the X100, stopped using the XE-1.

    The OM-D complements the X100 for me..
