Fair enough. I agree. You can do any type of photography you like with any type of equipment you want and get unique and interesting results whether for artistic or technical reasons. An X100 is great camera with a fantastic sensor. Leica's are great cameras. Some nice shots have been taken with an iPhone. But still I don't understand your statement that you're going to ditch your DLSR for an X100 because Canon won't wake up and realize you want a good small camera. Maybe I'm missing the point.
Someone named goodmane was the OP who wants to get a Fuji X100. I have no idea what his reasons are.
Me, I'm a tool user who has tools from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Toyo and Yashica. I don't plan on selling any of my Canon cameras, but as long as they aren't building anything new that I want/need, I won't be buying any new Canon equipment. Simple as that.
Sony is making something that I want/need with their light weight NEX mirrorless cameras (with excellent sensors). I prefer small/light cameras with prime lenses for my work. I've been using Sony pro video cameras for years, so there is no stigma attached to Sony for me.
