    I've shot this bridge with everything but the M Monochrom, but the only other camera comparable to the X Vario that I've used for a similar take is the Nikon Coolpix A, which has the same type sensor as the X Vario. But there's quite a large difference in quality. This result here (f6.4, 3.2 sec., ISO 400, 70 mm FL) surprised me, and one camera I don't have access to that I'd like to use on this bridge for comparison is the Fuji X100s.

    I didn't have a tripod handy, so I propped the camera against an otterbox cellphone case for the self-timer exposure. There are 5 stars clearly visible in this image.

    That is brilliant. Despite all the criticisms for the X-Vario especially about the aperture constraints this is a good example of why the IQ matters more. I have had an X1 for a few years now and am considering the X-Vario

    I bought the X1 in early 2010 and donated it to my photo club after getting the X Vario. If the X Vario IQ weren't as good as it is, it's just great to handle and use, and that manual zoom is the slickest thing in the world. You just have to operate one to appreciate it.
