My plan was to buy an X100S when it's released, but watching ebay last night I'm shocked at how much the X100 price has plummetted. By the time the X100S is released in March you'll likely be able to score a nearly new or open box X100 for $500. So a new X100S would be a whopping $800 extra! Worth it?

I used my S2 Pro for 6 years even then there were many newer bodies during that time

Being always on top means paying to the vendor

For what?

For marketing blabla?

Will this "upgrade" give you BETTER pictures? If so and if this pays you back this 800$ then buy it.

If you have that 800$ in you pocket and you don't care about it they buy it.

But if you are thinking if it is worth then... think twice what you want to pay for.

For being on top? Or for better usage? Or for better pictures?

Honestly I have exactly the same problem.

I will NOT buy X100s as I prefer to have second X100 for that money - for what? For my wife in example

But the choice is always yours.

Let me put it even simpler: if you don't care about 800$ then don't think twice and buy it!
