I guess I'm still slightly confused on your focal length issue. As you mentioned in a previous post 24mm and 50mm would be nice focal lengths, but if those are the focal lengths your talking about, then why can't you step back a few feet, or forward a few feet?
Heh, I don't have a focal length issue! In fact, out of 24, 35, and 50, I'd very strongly prefer 35. 50 is all well and good, but I'm not often in situations where foot-zooming is possible. And it's usually a lot easier to foot zoom (or crop) from 35 to 50 than it is in the other direction. 24 is great, but it's just too wide to have around all the time. Sure it'll inspire you to get up close and personal, but with an often gawky perspective.
My only real issue is that for the price, I would just feel psychologically frustrated knowing I'd never be able to slap a wider or longer lens on it. Ideally, it would have 15mm (24), 23mm (the current 35 it's got), and 55mm (85) pancakes. The 24 wouldn't have to be fast, and the 55 could be f/1.8 or so. That would be one hell of a system, and if Samsung is anything to go by (with their very nice and very affordable 20 and 30 pancakes), the whole thing could go for around $1500 (provided they price the X200 more reasonably than the X100)...and I'd probably buy it.
