As a longtime Nikon user I had hoped for a kind of APS format Nikon with an optical viewfinder. Unfortunately, that did not materialize in the Coolpix A. And it is too expensive too, especially if you want the add on finder. I went for the X100s which I have on order.

The 28mm decision as a lens choice didn't help Nikon either. Too wide for my liking for a single lens camera. I always liked a 35mm lens, which I also had in my film-era Konica Hexar.

Maybe if Nikon would bring out an interchangeable lens version, F adapter and with viewfinder I would change my mind, since I have a lot of Nikon glass I could use. But till then, it will be Fuji.

I will be using the X100s as a 'leasure time' camera, when I don't need to carry around the big guns for the job.
