just what I was thinking! congrats on your new toy and anniversary!
that's a great gift! I used this as a learning opportunity to teach my wife about good gifts!
also, I really like your gear setup, some people on here have everything from Canon's lineup, but you only have the really good things(IMO) from all the different manufacturers. Nice choices!

Thanks EchoLocation

'Has your wife got a sister ?'  ;)

Sorry Sporgon, I got the last one ;)

Grats!
Do a comparison with the RX1 when you get a chance? :)
What lens and camera did you use for the photos of the x100s?

The x100s was photographed with 5D III + 50L @ f2

Found this on my desk this morning :o :o ;D ;D ;D ;D It's my 7th anniversary gift from the wife.

Can you guess what this is? Hint: 1st letter is "X" and last is "S"

I'm heading out...will post some pics later


Thanks guys.

I received phones from clients, ended up staying at the office until 6PM >:(

After putting the kids to bed, I now finally have a chance to play with my new toy. Here are some photos taken with X100s, no flash, inside my house @ 10PM, normal lighting. I was shooting at 1/40 & f2.8: http://albums.phanfare.com/isolated/endboB6U/1/6247357

Here are same photos, with film style PP -- sorry, my PP skill is  :'(: http://albums.phanfare.com/isolated/PNuvB1xW/1/6247358

NOTE: It's day & night dif. between Canon and Fuji camera menu :-\

Will post more photos soon...

Went out for lunch with some co-workers today, I stopped by the camera shop to try build in ND + grad filters --- well the last 2 x100s were sold :-\

You just made me sad I forgot about the built-in ND filters when I had the X100s rented.  :(

Opppsss ???

I didn't know about the build in filters until ishdakuteb mentioned.

I brought my wife to local camera store last week. She wanted a "pink" camera bag for the RX1. While I was there, I got a chance to play with x100s.

I'm NOW having a high fever for it ::) ::) ::)

Just surrender, you won't regret it.  Warning, your DLSR will gather dust.

If you get it and want to shoot raw, get Iridient Developer for raw conversion.  Capture1Pro7 is really good too.  LR, not so much.

Thanks for the tips jaduffy007.

I plan to keep my 5D III and L lenses for another 4-5yrs. Hopefully by then, Sony, Fuji or Olympus will have much faster AF system and better tracking AF system for mirrorless.

i think you would love it more when using both build in neutral density (nd) and graduate nd filter for landscape.  one of my friend has this one and it is kinda fun to play around with.  the draw back is that you can not do much with candid type since this one is a fixed lens camera.

Haven't try that yet....I prefer not to come back to camera store to try it ;D

I wonder what happens if/when you actually get all current Canon EOS bodies/lenses/accessories.  Does that satisfy, or do you start buying Powershots, old Canon gear (200 f/1.8 anyone?), Leica stuff?, Medium format, or cross over to the dark side ;) and start over with Nikon. 

I plan to be really rich someday, so I need to plan out my addiction ;)

LOL ;D

Keep on dreaming AvTvM

quite to the opposite: camera makers are really dreaming if they believe, many potential buyers of mirrorless system cameras are wiling to pay MORE for a CHEAPER to produce mirrorless camera compared to an equally capable DSLR. Apparently they have to learn this the hard way. :-)

The price tag on RX1 is still $2800 - still selling like a hot cake ;)

All I can say is, keep the body and lenses small as RX1. These will be flying off the shelves

YES, but only IF ... product and price are "really right".
From the sounds of the rumor mill, Sony will come out with at least 2 mirrorless FF system cameras with FE-mount. ["Full-Frame E-Mount].

If the lower-end model should really come without built-in (electronic) viewfinder and costs as much or even more as a Canon 6D / Nikon D600 ... plus cost of an add-on EVF [Sony charges $/€ 495,- for these] I do not expect it to sell well. Definitely not well enough to allow Sony to quickly build a nice lens line-up and system around it.   

Similar to the Sony RX-1 - a nice camera, but way too limited (fixed 35mm lens, no viewfinder, no lens mount!) and grossly overpriced at 3k. That thingie should be 999,- at the max in order to fly off the shelves.
Nevertheless, I really look forward to Sony hopefully bringing mirrorless FF cameras to market soon, forcing Canon to come up with something *dramatically more interesting* than the EOS-M (no viewfinder, APS-C).

Keep on dreaming AvTvM

Great job.

If your children are like my son was, you did the right thing.  Plus, put the savings into the L fund.


Thanks scottkinfw.

Does she shoot it with either optical or digital viewfinder, or just the screen?

Just back screen for now
