The new Fuji X100S looks like it could give the RX1 some competition.

They're both great cameras

The lens and sensor may not be as good but everything else looks pretty sweet and not to mention half the price.

I never could get my head around focusing with the X100. The EVF is laggy, and the OVF felt like a gimmick without a proper method of manually focusing. If the X100s substantially improves the entire focus experience it's worth a serious look.

Even then, the build quality of the RX1 is better than the X100; the cameras just have a different feel and solidity.

But the RX1 and X100 are both wonderful cameras and they compete for the same slice of the pie. This is why you see people on this board argue so vociferously that there is no comparing the two and you must be a madman / fool / vulgarian to mention both in the same breath.
