Priaptor: If I were a Fuji owner, as many of you are, I wouldn't be gloating so much. The Sony NEX-7 literally blows the door off your investments, but a discussion for another time.

My take on the X series, is as an owner of an M9 who Leica is appealing to with their X line, the camera just doesn't make sense. But neither does the NEX-7 or Fuji variants, for me, no matter how compelling Sony and Fuji variants are.

Those of us already shooting with an M already have a compact and wonderful camera. I rather buy another lens.

Just my opinion.

When you compare high ISO shots, the Fuji X100 really holds the value high. Where the Fuji lacks compared the NEX-7 and most others is the horrible slow AF and in dark times horrible not good working one.

Another big negative point is the slow wake up time. I hope a follow up model to the X100 will be as fast as the X-Pro 1 and I also hope the work on the AF system, or at least add some Software based hyper focal shooting like the Ricoh GR digital models have.

I am a very happy X100 user, because even with it weak points it is an absolutely awesome camera. Nothing the NEX-7 could give me, because of lacking small lenses and a missing glass viewfinder. The glass viewfinder is one thing that makes the Fuji X100 and X-Pro so damn good for me.

Peter Nelson: I like this camera a lot. But, I like my Seiko/Epson R-D1 even more. I am so glad that I have an R-D1, the worlds First Digital Rangefinder mirrorless camera. It has the most manual controls of all. Not Leica nor this nice new FujiFilm X-Pro1 has as many usefull manual controls as my R-D1. I am now considering purchasing a second R-D1.

I also have the R-D1, but at low light this camera is useless. Everything above ISO 800 is just pure noise. I own the X100 and sensor side is just light years ahead of the R-D1.

And what manual controls? There is not much to control manual except focus, and I didn't buy the X-100 for that. And as it looks like X-Pro will have better manual focus. I will get this camera and it will for sure replace the R-D1s (which still has the most awesome retro indication dial of them all)
