I tend to buy every other generation of technology. I passed on the X100S. I expect (hope?) the X200 will be so good that, yes, I probably would stop using the X100.
Spending £500 on the extra kit for maybe what, a year, two years, of use isn't exciting.
If I knew the converters would also suit the X200 I'd not hesitate.

That makes sense.  We lack even any rumors of what an x200 will look like, and I would wager it will only be an improved x100s with more megapixels and better usablility. I don't see them changing the lens, especially since they will want to sell these teleconverters.  Once Fuji moves into 22-24mp territory I doubt we'll see an x200.

The notion of a FF x200 (in the same package) is utter folly.  And the 23mm lens matches the overall range finder vibe.

But yeah, until we see some worthy rumors you're in a holding pattern.  Come to Texas sometime and I'll let you borrow my 50mm tele once I have it in hand
