Get a Leica X1. No sticky problem. Better focus. Sharp! 30% smaller and lighter.

Here is a sample, is it focused and sharp enough for you?

To be perfectly honest, that looks way over-sharpened (=really bad). I really don't believe the X1 would do that on its own - did you mess with the picture and overcook it in the process? Maybe it suffered in scaling it down. I absolutely don't believe the X1 would produce out of camera results that poor.

The X1 does fall short of the X100 in certain other areas, though it certainly doesn't seem to have the quality control issues the Fuji has.
