So are you saying that you know enough about the mfr specs for both cameras to know Fuji is lying when they say the X100S requires paint that's more expensive than the paint used on the X20? Or you know enough about the various types of metal used in camera production that it's not possible that one camera could require different paint/finish than another? Or even though you don't know any of that you're just calling bullsh*t because you can?

It's "durability" issue is a big bubbling crock of bs, and I don't buy it for a second. Cameras have had black finishes forever. What's so magically special about this one? Gimme a break.

I'm rather skeptical of this 'special paint' arguement as well.  What is so special about the x100 that is different from the X-Pro1, X-E1, X10/X20, and every other camera that has been painted black?
