There are other APC sized compacts out there right? Where do they price?

I got a Samsung NX10 with a 18-55 stabilzed lens and the cracking 30mm f2 lens for €599. That's what Fuji are up against.

While the NX10 doesn't have the best sensor in the world, the glass is good and I get to use them on future improved bodies...not so with this Fuji. You are stuck with the focal length and you are stuck with the body.

Also I can add other versatile glass that are just as small as my 30mm pancake. Samsung will have a 16mm f2.8 pancake....that's 24mm wide angle. The fuji is neither here nor there at 35mm. It's not a great walkaround focal length and it's not a great wide angle landscape focal length. Samsung also have a 85mm f1.4 along the way too. Thats three nifty fast, small, lightweight primes.....16mm, 30mm and 85mm. This is the 30mm in action:
