Could you give 2-4 examples of the focus stacking mode(to blur the background), one specifically at 25mm and one at 100mm at last. Maybe of a person...or stuffed animal or something...

I would love to see exactly how will this feature performs. Also how fast it shoots. any lag taking it. and locking up of the camera...all of that good stuff. Can you take a pic with a moving subject with it at say 1/250th-1/500th of a sec?

PS could you shoot it in Velvia

I am not sure what you mean by focus stacking mode. I don't recall reading anything about that. On the moving subject thing, if the weather clears up here enough to get outside and snap a few pics of things in motion, I'll try to take a few and post them with the review I'm working on.

I can say the Velvia is a bit better than how that mode usually turns out on my X100 (ie, its more poppy saturated without blowouts, which my X100 has a tendency  to do). But I did notice that both the XF1 and my X100 have a similar problem in that they have difficulty rendering deep reds accurately. They tend to swing magenta a bit with a lot of loss of detail.
