Portrait of Mister L.
Fuji x100s, 35mm, f/2, 1/40s, ISO 800
One of the most frustrating things I experienced with my previous high-end compact cameras was that despite a lens that would open-wide, there was no way to get the shallow depth of field I like for portraits. This is because usually the sensor is so small that you get very sharp images all the way through -, whether you like it or not. So the first thing I did when I took the x100s out of the box was to shoot a portrait of one of my sons at f/2. And I must say the results look pretty pleasing to me: not only is the depth of field shallow enough that I get a real foreground / background difference, but in addition the sharpness wide-open is quite amazing.
