Thanks for the replies. You have validated my concerns.

I just heard back from one of the individual sellers who listed his x100 as new. In response to specific questions that I submitted, he stated that he purchased it back in October 2011 (therefore susceptible to SAB), and that he used it to take 200 pictures.

I'm not terribly experienced with eBay, and was intuitively wary, but I wanted feedback in case I was being unnecessarily cautious. Thanks for helping me see I was not off-base in my suspicions.
