While a lot of the menu-based operations of the X100 are far from intuitive, one control they got right was the Disp/Back button on the back of the camera. Push it when in a menu and it backs up one step. Push it when menu is off and it simplifies the viewfinder, removing grid, level and histogram. But hold it for a second and it puts the camera in 'Silent Mode' -- disabling all sounds and flash, including focus-assist light. Can't hear anything even with the camera pressed to my face. Truly a stealth or churchmouse mode.

ISO 3200, f/2, 1/125, RAW, converted to B&W in LR 3.
