Fujifilm unveils FinePix X100 large-sensor compact: Digital Photography Review

About darn time Fuji. It took you only 4-5 years. Finally the step that I wanted to see. I wish it had 3 interchangeable primes but from where Fuji was this is a major quantum leap light years catchup and forward. The interface is looking even better than what I envisioned- classic. Leica looking. Functional. Sexy. And I bet that EXR APS-C must rock.

I really want to see what this puppy can do. I am very very interested. As in very highly interested. I still wish for some zoom but whatever, I want to see what this can do.

Holy smack. This is pretty awesome. Something tells me this thing will sell like crazy among photographers.

I want one already....

I love the look and there's some size comparisons here: Fujifilm FinePix X100: Where the Hell Did THIS Come From? | Enticing the Light I hear it's going to come in around a grand. This will be a street shooters dream and maybe even some wedding shooters who want a nice quite camera during certain parts of a service.

The Sigma dpís are very nice cameras, however, I never even considered them because they lacked two important features that I needed -- an optical viewfinder and an f/2 aperture at the 35mm equivalent focal length. The Fuji X100 has these two features.

If the Fuji X100 lives up to its specs, I will probably buy one instead of the second Canon G11 body I had planned on buying. The X100 will give me three important features that my G11 does not have -- improved manual focus, manufacturing quality to withstand the wear and tear of daily usage, and an f/2 aperture at the 35mm equivalent focal length (the G11 only gives me f/3.2 at 35mm).

The X100 cannot, however, replace my G11 because it lacks two important features that I need -- a swing/tilt LCD and a black body.

As good as they are, the G11 and the X100 lack two important features I need -- a rangefinder focusing system and interchangeable lenses. I look forward to the day when someone manufactures a digital rangefinder with all the features I need and is able to sell it at a reasonable price.

Niche camera that will sufice for a few but without a zoom, even a moderate zoom they will never be popular. I can't believe the marketing mentality of Asian manufactures who sell on the world market. The largest investment by any manufacture is R&D and tooling. It's as though they never do market surveys before they pull the string and just hope it works for them. Great manufacturing abilities but IMO they couldn't sell Sex on a Troop Train.
