To everyone clamoring for interchangeable lenses and zooms,

Please understand that a camera with either interchangeable lenses or an integrated zoom would be an entirely different camera.

The X100 lens is depply recessed into the camera body, there simply is no space for an interchangeable lens mount in this design. Similarly, APS-C zooms would defeat the purpose of this camera, as would small sensor zooms.

I mentioned this on one thread about the deeply recessed lens, it gets very close to the sensor and the elment close to it looks very interesting, I am not any sort of a techy guy so cant get technical about it, putting zooms or interchangable lenses would destroy the concept and of course make the camera much bigger destroying its discreetness.
