Thanks for the links and all that.

From here and from some other forums I can tell that I didn't quite get my point across about Fuji being the new Leica. Not as clearly as I would like to get it across.

I'm in the middle of a project right now but next week I'm going to do a follow up that spells out my opinion. I'm sure *some* here will still take a crack at me and call me a hack and all that. That's fine. I'm no saint. That's for sure. Think what you may. Too bad I'm not a smart lady! Right Zvonimir?

Anyway. Hope y'all are well!

Zack,

Thanks for taking the time out of your busy "real full time photographer" schedule to drop by.  There are plenty of us who "get" what you were referring to in your statement.  And yes, you're right.  This X100s is the camera that Daniel Craig would carry as James Bond where Sean Connery would have carried a Leica.  Fuji gets it.  I've said in a prior thread that this camera appeals to people for the same reason that the new Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang appeal to people.  High tech in a retro cool package.
