Fuji x100: Vietnam snaps

My Fuji x100 is a camera I've had a real love hate relationship with, it's something I enjoy using but don't use enough, it's a camera I'm constantly trying to decide when to use. I've only made the problem even more difficult by recently getting a Fuji x-Pro1. The thing is that for most snaps now I use my phone and for anything more serious I use my DSLR, so in order to use the x-series camera's I really have to put the effort in and make a conscious decision to take them out the bag. I hoping over time - with more use that will change as I get more comfortable with them. The x100 certainly proved useful on a recent trip I had in Vietnam; I was there on a filming assignment, so my 5D was usually attached to some sort of rig or strap-less which meant I increasingly went out with just my x100. On Monday I'm off to India and I've still yet to decide if I'll be taking the Fuji X-Pro1 - I'm pretty sure I know the answer. These snaps below are some of the x100 results from Vietnam.

what are your thoughts on the x-pro1 vs the x100?

I love the size of the x100 it feels a lot more manageable. The X-Pro1 starts to feel like a small DSLR, especially with the size of the lenses. But one thing I love about the X-Pro1 is you can feel and hear the physicality of the shutter - you're not left guessing if you took the photo like with the silent x100.

Love the photos. What was the event? Just the random bar scene or someone's birthday party? Was it taken in Vietnams capital? Great job, I love the lighting.
