I went to Paris and all I took was... the Fuji x100s

For the first time I went on a small holiday/city trip without the big dSLR. I haven't been the first and I won't be the last. This trip opened my eyes to a more relaxing way of taking photo's. No lugging around the heavy bag full of lenses, taking (to) much time at certain places, continue busy switching lenses, and so on.

All the gear for 3 days in Paris

So for this trip we went for 3 days to the lovely city of Paris, and I deliberately left all the heavy equipment at home and only took the Fuji x100s. Here a short story about my experience using one focal length on a full trip.

So without diving into specsheets, the Fuji x100s is a superb and light camera with a fixed Fujinon 23mm f/2 (35mm full-frame equivalent) lens. Without the ability to change lenses, there comes a certain peace to my mind since there is no urge to take a bagload of lenses and no switching lenses on location.

Inside (and outside) the Louvre, the Fuji x100s shows it's remarkable ISO performance showing barely any signs of noise and great contrast and sharpness.
