This camera has a MUCH bigger sensor and a far superior lens to the GF1. It also has a SLIGHTLY longer focal length.

I think its the other way round - the 20mm on my GF1 equates to a 40mm in 35mm terms and the X100's 24mm will work out at 36mm due to the larger sensor.

woops, I think you're right. Still, my gripe about the 20mm 1.7 on the GF1 was that it seemed to distort on close ups more than the equivalent focal length on my dSLR's does. I'm hoping Fuji's approach of getting the rear element as close to the sensor as possible helps with this. (as they say it will)
