Bastian Junker: Would be great to see some sampleshots. I guess the bokeh should be affected by the longer distance. They say it's still F2.0 with the TLC, but when the area where the light comes through is the same but the mm distance changes (from 23mm to 33mm) there should be a difference in F-stop too.
23mm / 2.0 => d = 11,5mm 33mm / 11,5mm => F-stop = 2,86
I'll buy one anyway. Great job fuji;-)
Thanks for the explanation - I guess your right. I've heard that explanation before. As an engineer I just find it more intuitive to calculate the physical opening that is just in front of the sensor. On the other hand you still get the same amount of light (at least) with the TLC - I guess thats why its so big.
How would you calculate the F-Stop then?

Thats great news Fuji! I've been waiting for this for too long. The x100 does everything except for classic portraits (MO). I currently use a DSLR to cover this area. Looking forward to see some sampleshots with hopefully some nice bokeh.
Great simlpy great Fuji! I believe with the new update the X100 will go down as a legend camera that people will love and remember. Not only a quality product that makes great images (IQ) but also a company that think differently about their customers. Its not only about making money but also about the people - this is socialtechnology!
Bastian Junker: Fuji Xpro 2 fullframe - yes, please.....please:-)
You do not have to make big lenses for FF cam. Look at the Leica M system. They have FF and small lenses - that is possible....

Torturegarden: I almost have the perfect camera, the Fuji X100. I would like true manual focus, preferably rangefinder coupled. A faster lens, ƒ1.4 or better would be nice as well. Other than that, the X100 is perfect for me.
I have the x100 too and I agree some minor upgrades would be nice but all in all it is the perfect cam. for me.
And a 1,4 teleconverter:-)
Nice work Fuji. Hopefully they will make a wider angel in the future.
I can't understand why people keep saying that x100 has so many oddities. I think it's quite easy to handle, it took me about half hour to figure out how it works. Afterwards I looked through the manual and founded some great tips to make some shortcuts.
Donar: Is the slow startup problem also fixed? I stopped using my X100 because startup time could take several minutes! And in between that time it looked like it was dead/broken and was not going to startup at all. Oke when I re-formated the memory card the problem was gone, but I like to work with large sdcards for a reason so was thinking of the OM-D EM-5.
I really like the panorama mode for the X100, but the internal stitching isn't that good, especially with white highlights (snow). Is that fixed? (does anyone know how the OM-D panorama mode works? The NEX-7 panorama mode seemed to work better than the X100's.
I use High speed SD card 95mb/s and there is basically no waiting time at all. Turning it on takes about 0,5 sek. or less with no quick start. And there is no waiting time using raw at all.
This picture reminds me of Alice in wonderland - great pic. Congratulation:-)
Thanks for your comments - I did not see them until now. I was also a little disappointed with the placement, but Im still fond of the picture though... and your comments also makes me glad:-)
I think this shot has a great view
Catch you eye right away. Very pro.....
If people get comments of their work it means that they have done something rather unusual (and for the most part in a positive sense) The picture you comment somehow made you wonder, think, reflect, change you mind on a certain subject etc..etc. I guess thats why we like to take pictures - to tell a story and that is the power of one single picture. I like the picture telling a great story and I think the photographer deserved a positive comment - and if it should affect the competition - well great! Again it is well deserved. But just like jkats said I don't think it will have any affect at all. Picture is a very subjective thing and I personally vote intuitively and do not take any other opinions into account.
