Nice diversion from the seven-year itch!!

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...

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?

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!

I had the  same first thoughts like distant star.
And: you seem to have some nice toys already.
Very appetizing pictures you have made from them.

Enjoy!
