If you'll ask me it seems the x100 has a very high exposure latitude.
yes, from what i saw, the image is quite impressive for digital, but i still think it can be better tested by some pros, just to really bring out the potential of it.. for digital, i believe the image is good, if not great, for this is a compact..
