As you can see, these are not really ideal situations for an X100-series, although, to be fair, landscapes are certainly doable to an extent. The X100′s sleek rangefinder-esque body style really lends itself to street photography, in particular — a style with which I admittedly don’t have much experience with. While I started out as a de...
