My XS1 22x was replaced by Fuji (sent in to be repaired for orbs and droop) with a new one with a 23x serial number.  I agree, 23x (3rd quarter 2012 production) or newer (24x, 31x) is fine.

Decode Fuji serial:

  • 1st digit = year
  • 2nd = quarter
  • first letter = region intended for sale in
  • the rest of the number are likley the number they are in the production run. 
Example.... 23A (2012, 3Q).  My original XS1 was something like 22A00415
