As for the autofocus - well, the reason I want one of these so badly is because of the old school manual controls. I want to slow down in my picture taking, not speed up. I don't take sports shots or anything where a really fast AF is needed (although I really like the sound of the improved MF, so that's frustrating) so I'm thinking that a cheap, new x100 is right for me.

Yes, any improvement to the X100 MF would be most welcome. That said I've never had an issue with the AF of the X100; it works as well as any other CDAF system and while not as fast as some I've never lost a shot because of it.

If someone donated a new X100s I'd certainly accept it but I wouldn't spend more than double the cost of a X100 to buy one, nor would I want to lose the X100 in exchange for one.
