  • First, my favorite: Fuji X100 - some quotes from Falk Lumo who had the chance to talk to the Fuji folks:

"I asked why not with a lens mount? Answer: We want see how this one sells first. I asked: but you know that if this version does not sell it may be because it has no mount? Answer: no, is it so...? I asked if its cheaper than Leica X1. Answer was hesitant. Eventually they gave me "1000" as a ballpark number"

More X100 pictures available here and here plus another video:
