I got hands on with the x20 for a bit earlier today and liked it. I'm definitely going to be looking at it for one of the choices of a small camera to play counter part to my 5D3. Card slot was taped so no samples.

I've actually changed my mind about the OMD EM5 and placed a pre-order for the x100s. I decided it will help my G.A.S. to have a fixed lens and I LOVE the look of the Fuji and it sounds like a real beast.

I checked the link provided for x20, they are simply the morons in this department.
First four links are to the same first picture.

even after owning the X100 for only 2 weeks, I knew it was a keeper and excellent travel camera to have with you all the time. sure it has some quirks (slow AF, annoying buttons) but the images it's able to produce is amazing.

as soon they announced the X100s and read about the changes, it was a no-brainer.
called The Camera Store and pre-ordered one.
the only thing that they didnt fix are the buttons, looks like they are still small and hard to press.

Figures lol, I was set to grab an x100 soon, now they tempt me with the improved x100s.


I have returned to the light side of the force.

Considering I've gotten more use and enjoyment out of my X10 than any other digital camera I've ever owned (and that includes several DSLRs), the X20 will be very, very tempting. But on the other hand, I'm also inclined to wait for the next model in hopes of a larger jump in improvements. Will the slightly better sensor, slightly better autofocus, and slightly better viewfinder be worth the upgrade? I'll have to think it over.

I've also considered the XE1, but I've decided I enjoy not carrying extra lenses around too much to jump into either of those. I've gotten so used to only carrying around a small camera and nothing else that I worry I'd end up leaving an XE1 at home in favor of the X10 because it's so convenient.

Pre-ordered the X100S from Adorama last week. I hope there are no delays on this thing.

Same happened to me... I'm still wondering if the extras of the x100s are worth the extra dollars?

I'm interested in the Fuji system, but not until we get proper Raw support from Adobe.

I'm also extremely interested in the new X100s -- is Raw Conversion that much of an issue? Is there Lightroom support? Thanks, I'm new to the Fuji camp.

I'd like a companion for my current landscape kit.
