Joel, I might not have sold my X100 if it had what the X100S purports to offer. Beyond AF and MF issues, I found the X100 got in my way excessively, in ways the Ricoh GXR certainly does not.

Not that the GXR interface is perfect - but it goes a lot further towards being invisible or out of the way except when necessary than the X100's does. Granted, I've not used a X100 since the more recent UI and other update fixes.

An X100 (or a PRIC product) that offers usable AF and manual focus, plus a smart UI, and a lens which isn't prone to veiling flare, would be tempting to me for a general purpose small camera for me that has to do double duty as a decent camera for the family.

Thx, very good to know.
