JackM: I'm out.

It is surprising to see how many people complain about the weight of DSLRs and how much they will pay to reduce the camera size by what seems to be a relatively minor amount. ~1lb for the Fuji vs. ~1.7lbs for a Nikon D7000 (without lenses) doesn't really seem like such a big deal. The Nikon D3100, an excellent camera for the money, weighs but 2 ounces more than the Fuji.
If you wish to take discrete photos of people on the street without their noticing you, perhaps the Fuji is a bit more inconspicuous. If "stealth" street photography is your goal, however, it would seem that a Canon S95 or S100 would serve the purpose just as well and be far more economical.
For any other type of photography, the reduction in size and weight don't seem to be much of an advantage.
But apparently, Fuji seems to believe the size/weight reduction will sell at such a high premium. The market will determine if they are right.

Jogger: should have gone all the way and made it full frame if they were going to price it like that

Too expensive for the benefits.
