Fuji X20 or X100 ....new firmware????


I'm a current sony A37 owner and am looking into the possibly of replacing it with a fuji X20.

I have owned and traded cameras from just about every market.

Pentax, Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Olympus, now Sony

No, I don't really enjoy playing leapfrog from company to company, but I do prefer to have what I like and am not loyal to any brand. If fuji makes a camera that fits my needs, then I'll get a fuji and the same for the other companies.

Since I like to shoot with only one lens (preferably a lowlight prime) I've never been to worried about making a jump from one company to the next.

When I went from Nikon d7000 to fuji X100 I was in love...for about 2 months, until the dreaded focussing became to much. My children were pretty much a blur except for posed shots. Other than than I LOVED everything else about the camera.

I tried out the olympus epl3, but never really fell in love with that camera. I like the colors but not the high ISO and not the lack of VF.

Since I liked the evf of the fuji x100 ( never really used the ovf that much, since i prefered the evf "pre-chimp" option) I decided to go with an entry level sony A37 for the dslr (slt) speed and the evf. Though I enjoy the camera I am constantly reminded why I went for the fuji X100 in the 1st place (size, bulk, form) and plus I'm not entirely pleased with A37 evf.

So I have been looking at the X20 (mainly for the fuji colors and vf). Though the X10 is  lot cheaper now and the IQ is nearly the same I don't think I'll be able to handle the zero info in the VF (why I chose the x100 over the X10). Then I saw the "super firmware" update business for the X100 boasting improved AF and MF, but those update mentions have seemed to have disappeared off the planet. Yet my recent issue of "Reponse Photo" talks about the update coming at the beginning of Sept...well that obviously never happened.

I guess I'm asking which would be a better choice the X20 or is there actuallu a AF/MF firmware update for the X100

thanks for any replies
