I’m taking part in Zack Arias’ DEDPXL assignments.
You only can enter pictures made in the period the assignment is open, see the link above about where you can post them; there are several options.
It makes me shoot pictures I usually wouldn’t, which is great.

Some interesting reviews about the Fujifilm X100s:

As David Hobby mentions in the video and in the comments to his blog post: “[M]ake sure you turn on the parallax compensation for the AF point in OVF mode. Makes a big difference. Dunno why having that “off” is even an option.”
Edit: as of Ver.1.20 “on” is either the default or at least doesn’t get set back to “off”.
As long as you don’t change this the optical view finder doesn’t show you where the focus point really is. See Ken Tanaka’s post (about the X100) for some screen shots.
From the manual:
How to change to ON:
- Menu -> Shooting Menu -> Corrected AF Frame -> ON
“Stop watching my videos. Go and ‘do’.”
