I regard Fuji very highly... But come on folks!!!
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.
