If there would be EBC zoom lens like 24-50 on Zoom Date F2.8/Silvi F2.8 or 28-56 on DL Super Mini Zoom/Tiara Zoom, I wouldn't cry for fixed 35mm lens.

It's a nice camera, but fits only one of the tiniest of niches. "Niche" is something Fuji does well, but I predict a very small base of buyers for the X100. so like the two folders, Fuji better get their money on each one they sell. Look for high prices. This camera is not going to sell in great numbers. I don't expect it to be reasonably priced for what it proposes to deliver. And it is cute for the retro buyers. Unfortunately that's not a market that supports great numbers of product.

Still, I would never give up my big Fujica-Fuji Rangefinders and those wonderful EBC coated lenses (shooting huge rolls of film that is).

It's quite surprising to follow the discussions on the X100.

I'm still waiting for the current folder to break under $1000 on the used market (Yeah, I know... not likely). In addition, I will be watching for the X100 to break $500 used. That's what it's worth in my book.

I'll likely be pushing up daisies before an interchangeable variant of this camera arrives for purchace on US shores.

I thought the X100 to be Fuji's response to the X1 Likea??

No?

Poll should have an interchangeable lens option. That will be the pressure point when I believe Fuji will eventually relent. Too much extra cash in selling multiple lenses.

Probably not. I would imagine the X100 was thought up before the X1. It takes time to develop these things.

Right now the X100 is cool but I really would just like some Fujinon EBC lenses in M mount.
If the company follows their past builds though, they will probably do another focal length. Maybe a ~75mm since 35/75 is a popular and very versatile combo for the rangefinder die hards.

Mere conjecture...

I feel the same way. The trouble is I am torn between a 50 mm and 75-90 mm.

i think 75 would be perfect...90 is too long for many applications, 50 too close to 35 if there will only be 2 cameras.

I'll take a 50mm version. I'm of the opinion that 50mm and 35mm are very different. No company, which is looking to make money, is going to make a 75mm fixed lens camera.
