Tom, The Fujifilm X-E1, And A Dollar Bill

Yesterday at the Maryland Renaissance Festival, I chanced to meet Tom, who was shooting with the Fujifilm X-E1. We chatted for a while, and I learned that he is one of a growing number of photographers who have sold off their DSLR gear in favor of the Fujifilm X-system.
