Just a quick test of the built in 3 stop ND filter. From what I can tell there is no color cast and it works very well. But if I want to shoot in bright light at f2 since the max shutter speed is 1/1000 at f2 I will need a real good 49mm ND filter. I do not gain 1/4000 until I get to f8 the draw backs of the leaf shutter but the advantage of a leaf flash sync all the way up to 1/4000 without high speed sync trick.

One of the drawbacks I found with my X100 Jim.... works fine for shallow depth of field shots ... but a bit slow to deploy. As you say the disadvantage of leaf shutter(....well using the shutter as the diaphram as well as for shutter duties.)

You can sign the Function Button to engage/disengage the ND filter.
