Well, if FF that's going to require a new set of lenses. My XPro1 is a good camera but if I'm going to go to the trouble of lens changes... I'll stick with the Canon's until Fuji comes around to FF.

You liking the jpegs or RAF files? I shoot only RAF but I find them to be sublime for PP and I think they can be pushed around much easier while still retaining the Fuji look.

I do WISH Fuji has X100s design with 35mm sensor, with 35mm f1.4 fixed lens. I'm in.
I shoot both RAW + JPEG. I love the JPEG looks straight out from camera. I'll post some pics when I get home.

Lenses / Re: Do you usually shoot your lenses wide open?

The only f2.8 lens I shot at f8 and f11 was 16-35 f2.8 II.

Otherwise:
1. 50L @ f1.4 - f1.6 only
2. 85L II @ 1.2 - 1.6 only
3. 40pancake @ f2.8 or f5.6 only
4. 24-70 II + 70-200 most of the time @ f2.8, sometime f5.6

You will never see a lens cap in my camera bag. All lenses are protected with BW Clear Filter, including X100s. Ready to shoot at all times.

How often do you clean the filters, and how often do you replace them?

Not so often. I use my shirt and wipe it off...done. No more then 10seconds.

My fav. is B&W XS-Pro Clear MRC-Nano 007 Filter: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/756818-REG/B_W_66_1066111_77mm_XS_Pro_NANO_Clear.html

Someplace on my network... is a picture of ol' slowhand, Mr. Eric Clapton himself, shooting an M9 at Wimbledon with.... the lens cap on his 50mm Summilux.  Sigh.  If I find it, I'll post it.
I found a site on the Leica.

Enjoy, I've found it best if you drive all by yourself... auto anything is not much to my liking. AF is ok but better/quicker with Manual. Won't ever replace my 5D3's/1DX but when I head out with a minimalist mind set... it's the only camera I take. Leaf shutters rock, at f/2.0 you can trigger up to 1/1000 allowing you to do things you could never do with any of the Canons. As a strobist, this opens up tremendous opportunities. BTW... tape a 1/4 CTO to the onboard flash and it helps it play nicer with natural light.

The Xpro1 is a good camera but Fuji dialed in the button layout much better with the X100S, if/when the Xpro2 comes out I will be all over it. Hopefully it has phase contrast AF and FF, then it's a dream come true.

After playing with X100s for 3hrs today....I'm officially in LOVE with Fuji. Mark my word if rumor Xpro2 is FF with retro design( like x100s), I will sell some of my Canon gear and will jump on Fuji wagon ;)

Will start with 14 or 16mm and 85mm

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
