I wouldn't say that the S100FS was free of droop - I have two of them and they both have some play in their lenses. But it's certainly not anywhere close to what Paul demonstrated with his X-S1. And the orbs I've seen in sample photos online, yes they are certainly there but don't seem to be as obnoxious as some of the ones seen from the X10.

However, considering I got both of my S100FS cameras, in good-used condition for around 350 each, I don't know if spending doubleplus that on a new X-S1 is worth it. I admit, I WAS thinking about it, when the model was announced, but now... no.
