X100 seems to be a really good camera and I've almost decided to buy it.
However, could you point out some alternatives I could consider ?

The features I am looking for:

  • APS-C sensor (4/3 as a last resort)

  • relatively compact form (pancake lens will do, but certainly not a giant one sticking out of a tiny body like Sony NEX)

  • sharp prime f/2.0 or brighter, focal length around 20mm / 30mm (in APS-C terms)

  • good ISO 800, usable ISO 1600

  • great JPEGs straight out of the camera

Obviously, all of these are fullfilled by X100, but is there any other camera (apart from Leica M9 that could compete ?


PS. Or maybe it's worth waiting for the new mirrorless system from Fuji... if it's X100 + interchangable lens - sticky blades, I guess it'd be the winner ?
