Nice overview of the X100 Brendan. I can't get the image of that owl's eye out of my mind now, it's excellent.
It has taken me a few months shooting and familiarizing myself with the X100 before it felt like an extension, but the results are well worth it and it has been a great image making tool for me. There's something right about it when held in your hands, it is a camera that I have no issue slinging around my neck for whatever I may come across.
I threw on a thumb rest, which greatly my confidence of the camera in hand while shooting. Add a B+W UV filter and say goodbye to that lens cap.
