I am in a similar situation, though I already own a Fuji X-Pro1 and a Sony RX-100.

Still, what really thrills me of the X100s, is the possibility do fine manual focusing replicating the Fresnel screen functionality. Finally, a way to really determine where to put the focus without chances to make mistakes that would be only visible by looking at the pictures on a PC screen.

Fuji made a very good job, and I think that next generation of cameras will incorporate this feature, too. AF is a nice feature, but a good MF gives to the photographer much more freedom, and Fuji will make happy a lot of photographers used to analog cameras.

That said, I am looking forward to reading reviews about the X100s, because if my good impressions are confirmed, it will be definitely mine, earlier or later.

The X100 is a very good camera, but I can't justify myself for buying it when I already have the above-mentioned cameras. My opinion, of course

I'd be curious to read other impressions, too.

Cheers,
Nico Westlicht
