Thanks, good suggestion re. the Flickr group, I will take a look now.

I agree about the price - i really can't see it dropping very much further (although I probably will wait a month or two - particularly as I have upcoming trips to both Singapore and Hong Kong planned!). I think 500 GBP or thereabouts, or better still 400, is worth every penny. I doubt stocks are so high that they'd need to sell them off for cheaper, so it may be a question of trying to snap up one of the few remaining new ones (I don't want second hand).

As for the autofocus - well, the reason I want one of these so badly is because of the old school manual controls. I want to slow down in my picture taking, not speed up. I don't take sports shots or anything where a really fast AF is needed (although I really like the sound of the improved MF, so that's frustrating) so I'm thinking that a cheap, new x100 is right for me.

Thanks all - this is a most helpful and responsive community.
