According to Amazon UK, the x100s will be available on Feb 18th. That sounds early, given what else I've read on these forums and elsewhere, but it's an indication and should be along soon. So the question is what to go for.

I've seen an x100 here in Shanghai,

Are you an English teacher in Shanghai by chance?

supposedly new (looked it) but obviously grey market, for the equivalent of 480 GBP. Amazon UK lists the 100s as costing a shade under 1100 GBP. So, massive difference.

Price is definitely a concern for me and I would be stretching like crazy to afford the 100s. I guess I'm looking for some x100 owners to tell me that I wouldn't be disappointed in an x100!

I'm very much an amateur, and a lapsed one at that. I'm drawn to the x100 due to the manual controls (which would slow me down and make me think again, after years of snap shots on fully automatic cameras) and the much vaunted image quality. I WOULD like great MF performance but I could probably cope without it.

Any advice please? To stretch myself financially or not?
