Hi Marcello,

Some X-100's with low serial numbers had issues with the shutter blades sticking. I'm not good at searching here but the issue has been covered to death.

Good to know, I'll do my homework before buying

Out of warranty sticky blades repair will make your total purchase much more than a whole brand new x100s with warranty so you may very well consider if a potential issue with used one is worth the trouble. And there were MANY X100 that needed to go for repair, some multiple times. Even the x100s I have was already in repair once - so think about the fuji lesser reliability when buying used. It is not an urban myth. From all my camera brands - and I had all of them, fujis were the ones that needed repair.
