Jeeeesus!!!!!

Holy $%^$%!!!

I didnt think Fuji had it in them!!!! WOW!! Just WOW!!!

I am SOOOOO over this one!

What a stunning turn around. I've been reading Kim's review of the F300, getting more and more depressed about how bad it is, and then this!!!!

WOW !!!!

As I said a million times, I am happy to be wrong about Fuji.

Re: New X100 looks good

That looks a very interesting product.

Looking at the spec, I think there are very few people who would use it as their main camera but I suspect the price will mean I can't really think about it for occasional use either.

I really like the dual viewfinder approach but I'm a bit confused about the EXR processor with an APS-C CMOS sensor. I'm guessing this isn't the same as an EXR sensor in terms of pixel binning. I'd be interested to hear other peoples take on this.

Re: New X100 looks good

From first glimpse I think I'm in love. If this baby got the IQ it might very well be my first Fuji camera

The exr bit sounds very much like marketing to me.

why fixed FL?

Fuji has repeated Leica and used a fixed FL lens. If they had done it with a 24-70 mm zoom equiv, I'd be first in line.

Re: New X100 looks good

Interesting that Fuji calls it an EXR processor. Guess the sensor is a regular Bayer patter then.

Overall I can't say enough positive things about this camera. Sure it would be nice if it had HD video or a higher resolution screen but those aren't required to take fantastic pictures.

Re: New X100 looks good

My only gripe is that (I expect) they will price this like a Leica, and only make a limited run of these things. If it's a harbinger of things to come, though, I might live to get another Fuji yet!

Let the pricing speculation begin!

I vote $699. Any higher is a death blow.

(F700, F710, F30, and lastly F20 when F30 got smashed)

Hopefully this will influence the DP2's price :D.

Re: New X100 looks good

Yes sure, I've got an exr camera. But this thing doesn't have an exr sensor.

There are other APC sized compacts out there right? Where do they price?

It is impossible to see how this baby could not perform. Fujinon lenses are utterly fantastic , the sensor size is PERFECT and the megapixels are not excessive. This baby has it all for folks like me who do street photography. Just fantastic.

Re: New X100 looks good

I AM in line for this one...

The fixed lens is just what I want on such a camera. Solid construction, less prone to dust, less chance of dirty contacts, and optimized design for just one camera... 35mm F2 is good. Now lets all keep our fingers crossed for IQ and a price of less then 700 euro...

Leica missed it by just a hair with the X1 (collapsing lens and price wise). You have no idea how hard I have been yearning for a real digital camera like this. A photographers tool instead of a picture taking computer gadget!
