ok... lets be nice.
But for a beginner to start with a fixed "zoomless" lens it tends to be a little crippling. Would not recommend it for someone starting photography. You're more likely to feel "restrained".
It would be wiser to get either the XZ-1 or one of the mirrorless "dslr" don't think the SLR term is correct anymore...
P&S: Sony U20, Pana-leica FZ5, Canon S90, Pana DMC-T3
SLR: Nikkor F60, Oly E-510, Oly E-5
u have to try with prime lens 1st...not everyone likes prime lens....
if u think, u're happy with that..u can go ahead to buy X100...if not, better to buy another camera...
its more on your preference...
*just my 2cents*
To TS, you might want to take a look at the newly announced Fuji X10 which has the zoom function plus the look of the x100.
Relax guys.Noneed to foxtrot KevinWhite . He is only trying to share what he knows.
If as the experts here think he is not right , there is no need to make him look like he commited a federal crime right ?
At least he take the effort to offer what he knows instead of "go use the search function" or "please google the answer"
Blimey,we are all newbies once before .
This is a place with lots and lots of information .
As newbies , sometimes we are overwhelmed by such a massive information overload .
Please please just ignore us if you feel the questions we asked are beneath your level to answer . I would think no answers is better than "go google it" or "dont you know how to use the search button instead " . Sometimes we really do not know how to use the button .
He made a statement that is inaccurate. If don't know, then don't say. If say wrongly, nothing wrong also, but be prepared to be called on that and corrected.
If a person cannot stand any correction or criticism, then a forum is not something for him/her.

can i ask if getting a x100 will it be cheaper than a dslr in long run?

Depending on what you intend to shoot and what was your style of photography. I have known photographer who uses 50mm f1.8 for years without adding another other lens to their arsenal. So it also boils down to one's discipline.
Of course when you get the X100, you might be forced not to buy any other lenses (basically, you can't). But... like what Jas had said, you might find that limiting... then the fate of that X100 was either to retire semi-permanently in your dry cabinet or would be sold off to another person.
And who can forget the skin tone master......
Oops, so freedom of speech is about people just stating their opinion and then everyone else sitting around keeping quiet even if they disagree. But what about my opinion of their opinion.... Doesn't it matter????? Don't you care about my opinion anymore????????
People have the fundamental right to take an argument to the point where somebody is offended by what they say. Itís no trick to support the free speech of somebody you agree with or to whose opinion you are indifferent. The defence of free speech begins at the point when people say something you canít stand. If you canít defend their right to say it, then you donít believe in free speech. You only believe in free speech as long as it doesnít get up your nose. But free speech does get up peopleís noses.
