The X100 image quality and high ISO capability is as good as any DX-format sensor available at present. The optical viewfinder is a gem -- I use the camera much more like a rangefinder than like a DSLR.

But as you note the focal length is a limitation. I don't travel with only the X100 for that reason. My travel load is a little lighter as I no longer take my D200 for a backup camera nor do I take the 24mm Sigma lens (sold it after I got the X100).

I'm leaving for Paris a week from today, and will be there for two weeks. Certainly I'll wander around some days with only the X100, but generally I'll want a wide range of focal lengths available.
