It is a point and shoot because its not a true rangefinder, point being ?

Who are these "serious photographers" for one thing ?

Two, given the X100 is not a true rangefinder, nor is it a true SLR, what could it be other than a p&s ?

Given the MF isn't ideally implemented yet I certainly use mine like a P&S, ie; auto focus, point then shoot.

Also like a p&s, it doesn't have interchangeable lenses, so again, unlike a RF like the M9, its more akin to a p&s

Its an awesome p&s though and works just perfectly for a casual wear around your neck camera

Serious photographers are saying that it is a p&s in its soul with a dslr sensor.

Both will deliver stunning pictures in the right hands

The X100 apparantly has some amazing JPG OOC possibilities with brilliant skintone colors, no PP needed...

Serious photographers on the Fuji forum have a thread where they excoriate using jpg and advise using raw at all times.
