Yup
Got your attention right?
But a picture paints a million words =)

No idea how much it costs

/////////

Anyways, I was looking to buy the X10 or X100 and was checking out the shops in Hong Kong.

I found a pretty good package for about 10,000 HKD (divide by 7.77 for USD) which included the original hood, original black fuji case, a fuji ext flash and a 8gb card (but class 4 only)

At that price, it was the best among all the other shops

Played with the x100 and x10. Didnt really like the x10 as it didnt fit in my hands all that well.
solid built though but rotating the barrel to get it from OFF to 28mm somehow doesnt fit my handmotion too well
the vf of the x10 wasnt as clear and impressive as the x100

loved the x100 but at the end of the day, could not bear to spend 10k hkd =(
sigh

i thijnk i am going to try to save for the xpro1 as i would then be able to use my leica and zeiss glass with that camera (adapter needed)

The white X100 doesn't seem that impressive. Looks like Fuji HK merely reskinned it...

P.S: You should be able to get a better deal for the X100 in Singapore, where it's going for S$1450 (USD1170).

interestingly thats about the same price as in shanghai 7366 RMB but there are some freebies
http://www.360buy.com/product/356899.html

The X100 w/ no freebies alone is being sold in Hong Kong for 8900 HKD (1145USD)
which is cheaper than Singapore or Shanghai

Aki-Asahi sells an excellent X100 leather skin kit (Japan) and that includes several real leather. I have camel on the way.

silver cameras just look cheap, even if they're really metal. when they're painted plastic, they look terrible, especially once they've worn a bit (voigtlanders)
