Reviews Etc (X100, A55, T3i/600D, T3/1100D, SH100, LX5, etc)

Time for another review round-up! But first, we have a new segment in these round-ups. We often get carried away and act as if this is a non-profit/hobby blog, but in reality, it takes countless hours per day to do this and if it doesn't pay the bills = unsustainable. So we are introducing a new "Shop & Support" segment in the review round-ups, where you can support this blog by making your purchases through our affiliated retailers - if you found our past and present non-stop updates helpful/interesting/entertaining/etc.
