For those who don't know me, I'm an inveterate rangefinder camera shooter. I've had some for of one since I bought my first Leica CL and got completely hooked on the shooting process. Rangefinders are wonderful little beasts - they are lightweight, don't have a prism and the viewfinder shows an outline of the framelines so you know how to frame the shot.
My fantastic little Fuji X100 was stolen at a conference last year, and I mourned the loss ever since. This camera is the size of one of those 4/3rd's cameras, but it contains a Digital SLR CCD (it's not full frame, but your typical APS size, which is still much larger than your traditional point and shoot). It had a leaf shutter (meaning a tiny little shutter in the lens, since the lens is fixed in the camera). That means you could take super-sharp pictures in low-light hand-held, and since it was so portable it just went with you everywhere.
I had my SLR which I pulled out at birthday events, but it's just too big for me now. I don't need all of that gear, and most of my shots are at the 35mm semi-wide angle anyway. My replacement for the camera was a Sony RX100, which has great image quality and lots of nifty features, but no viewfinder. Also the sensor wasn't very large compared to the DSLR or the Fuji, so I couldn't get those low-light shots.
I finally decided to purchase a X100s (the replacement for the X100) this year as I was beginning to travel more for work, and wanted to get good pictures with a portable camera.
Here are a few images from recent trips where I used the X100s. A great camera, the price of a good prosumer DSLR (around $1,000), but you will never get images so sharp and with such good color on such a regular basis from your Canon or Nikon without spending thousands on lenses. That little f/2 35mm equivalent lens kicks major butt.
