So is Fuji X100 available now?

So, it's been a while since earthquake and so forth...
Now I am curious: is it possible now to go to store (or on-line) in US and actually buy Fuji X100? Is it finally available like any other digital camera or still not?
Thanks.

I've only heard of waiting lists for them.

Saw a gent today at an AV show with an X100, got to at least play with it.
Front end short but stout; although some of the control rings seemed a bit pressed up toward the body, similar to a v.2 35/14 Lux on an M8/RD1s body.
I mean its didnt seem the best ergo-wise, but was nice and compact and light.

They must be available over here in Europe somewhere. I just cams back from Arles and the place was crawling with them, although there were still more Leicas around than anything else.

But if you are in USA and buy from a store in Candada, your warranty may not be valid.

They are not in stock anywhere in USA from what I have found. Of course I have not spend hours and hours looking.

(the OP asked specifically about USA)

Yes, that was my question.
I did try that Canadian link and yes, I can order it for $1190 right now.
But warranty aside, I just don't understand why in the heck it's nowhere in US and freely sold in Canada?

I saw 3 in stock at Aden Camera downtown Toronto last week. I hate that store, though and would never give them my money again.

Camera Craft in Sault Ste Marie, ON has one on the shelf.

canadians are more popular and well liked?

What's "legitimate" got to do with it?

Artificial scarcity is a perfectly legitimate sales strategy, too. It actually increases the hotness of the thing.

But you can now buy after-market adapter/hood on eBay for $40 - $50. I saw one here on a friends camera and its quite nice.

Meaning they've sold a lot of these... so I'm not so sure there was ever artificial scarcity... scracity yes, but artificial probably not. I think the disasters in Japan had more to do with it than anything.

Still it's just quite strange that, while people all over the world already love or hate this camera, resale it and so forth, I still cannot find the legitimate place in US where I can put an order and buy this camera for the $1200 as initially advertised. Is it only me, or what am I missing here? Strange.

B&H photo had them in stock the beginning of June.. Keep an eye on their site. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/ When it is available, if you want the case, the hood, etc.. order it at the same time. Those items vanish quickly as well. It will be more money up front but you will secure that you have what you want.

Isoterica: I've been on B&H "We'll notify you" wait list for almost 3 months. There is seems to be no way to put money "up front." Do they really notify you, readers? Phil
