The King is Dead. Long Live the King.

Not long ago, I lamented that my trusty, well loved X100S met its fate as I tumbled on the ice whilst skating the Rideau Canal.

Yesterday, its replacement–the brand-spanking-new X100F–came into my posession. Many pixels have been lit up (nobody spills ink anymore) previewing and reviewing this camera, so I won’t bother here.

Suffice it to say, I think I’m really going to like this one. As they’d say in Boston, it has wicked fast autofocus (at least compared to the X100S) and the Acros B&W film simulation is really something special.

I haven’t had the time to do much with it yet, between work and life and other things getting in the way, but I thought I would share a quick portrait of my buddy Adiy that I snapped at the office this afternoon. Apart from the 4×5 crop, this is entirely SOOC.

I think this camera has soul.
