Re: X100 limited edition worth the extra money?

Just look around, lot of people have indeed written response from fuji that all year 2 production cameras will have new lens assembly. No need to dig out skeletons.

I continue to find so amusing how people tend to talk about the new assembly as they actually worked for fuji. Just because some service guy told you there was a new assembly it doesn't make it true. Customer service by phone tend to say things to get angry customers out of their back.... I am just curious do you have any written confirmation by fuji in this regards? will love to see it. I am not saying its not true, i am just saying that there is no way to really tell, without any public announcement as the did with the orb issue....

At least you will know you are getting the one with fixed sticky blade problem, all blacks have the new assembly.

But again, you paying a lot for it a lot - the accessories are just too overpriced, you can get the exact same thing from ebay for like $20 total. (i mean hood and ring). There is no difference in those ebay things from the real one.

It is your money, but I think the black is meant to be more like a gift idea, for people who have everything and don't care about the money.
