I spoke with a Fuji rep. at the Ottawa camera show and he doubts there will ever be a xs-2! Kind of implied that sales were not so great and that it was too much of a niche market to warrant an update.


FUJIFILM told me that X-S1 sales have been extremely disappointing here in China and that the camera is being withdrawn from the market. My search to get a good one (without droopage) soon will have to end.


Since you seem to travel around the Globe so much, maybe you could try one other than from China. One with a upgraded sensor/lens combo. It seems obvious the China dealers you frequent haven't bothered to replace their stock with newer improved units. So your judgement of the X-S1, while justified for what you've tried, might change with a newer unit. Much like the X10.
