The X100 is a tremendous camera, absolutely perfect for street photography. And while not ideal for portraiture, you can use it for this if you understand the characteristics of its focal length. However, when it comes to manual focus, it's rather a mess. Firmware updates have greatly improved manual focus so that it's much better than before, but it's still a liability. While the X100s hasn't been released, Fuji claims that this problem has been resolved.

I do not own an X10, so I cannot comment on its manual focus capabilities. However, all indications are that it's a pretty decent street shooter. But if you're interested in the X10, why not wait for the X20?
