I personally prefer a Fuji chip ,as well.I guess Fuji may not have a ready APSC chip to use in X100. This may be exact reason to make them use another chip rather then Fuji.On the other hand if the sensor of X100 is the one in Nikon D300s ,then with the customization they applied ,it may not be that bad.(I wish)

Aside X100 ,my estimation is that Fuji may be working to manufacture new big chips for their fuure plans.Because in the below review Fuji operational manager clearly states that X100 is only a begining .If this is right then I think Fuji will not continiue this way with supplying their sensors externaly.Or this is something I want to believe
