Having had an X100 since 2011, with hindsight my equivalent list would be:

X100S 16 MP Digital Camera with 2.8-Inch LCD (Silver)

B+W 49mm Clear UV Haze Multi-Resistant Coating (010M)

49mm Black Filter Adapter Ring

SanDisk Ultra 32 GB SDHC Class 10 Flash Memory Card

All the rest is superfluous.  I've bought many accessories but dumped them all in favour of the items above.  Extra batteries, bought them never needed them.  Bags, bought them, they lie unused. Thumb grip, bought, now at the back of the drawer.  Soft releases - never did see the point. Hood, bought as part of the adaptor set, in the same drawer as the thumb grip.

Enjoy your camera though, but just take pictures, no need for all the extras - in my view.  Having said that I enjoyed selecting and buying them - just haven't used them after the initial opening of the boxes...
