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

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 :-\

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

This is kind of funny. Recently I had a new bathroom installed at home, so I vowed to restrain myself purchasing new lenses until I had payed for it, but as soon as the bathroom was finished, I found myself going out and purchasing an 8-15mm fisheye zoom and a 135mm f2 in a hurry. I just couldn't hold myself back any longer  :o.

I recently completed modifying couple closets at home, myself.

1st photo - my kids play room(basic shelving)
2nd photo - my kids closet

I called around and asked for quotes from dif. local contractors. They wanted $200-$350 for kid playing room - basic shelving. $875 to $1200 for the kid closet.

To build kid playroom shelving, I paid $62 for woods and 2hrs of labor

To build kid closet, I paid $274 for all material and 5hrs of labor

Add 300mm or 400mm f2.8 IS II will cure it ;D

Congrats on your toys

What else do you own? You could be my new best friend, too.

Some crappy L lenses and few junk 5D III ;)

6D is my vote. You will see HUGE dif in IQ.

I would replace the 28mm with 85 f1.8 for portrait - candid shots

Ha I heard 1600 a good price?

My 2cents, yes. It's up to you though.
