    Although I paid a premium that is no longer justified for the X100, this is good news for the photography world. I salute the Japanese culture of hard work, fortitude and ingenuity that made this possible.

    Kodak keeps kicking. Good to see a company that is almost dead stick it to other companies who steal their patents.

    I think that you will find that the A850 came out in August 2009 & not 2010.
