reviewsWhat are people saying about the X100

"As a high-end retro-styled camera with a fixed focal length lens, the X100 was always going to have niche appeal."
dpreview.com | talking about the camera's overall-performance
"Ground-breaking hybrid viewfinder works extremely well - large, bright and clear, with detailed exposure information in optical finder"
dpreview.com | talking about the camera's auto-focus
"The X100's traditional control layout, with its aperture ring and shutter speed and exposure compensation dials, makes it a fast and highly intuitive camera to operate for anyone versed in the basics of photography."

Greg
if your a DSLR guy, why do you have an opinion about this camera?? you are already way out of our league ..

My father was a professional photographer. I have always had a great appreciation for photography and perhaps a gift from my father in composition.

The X100 even if flawed in the running against the heavyweight DSLR specs - is by far the best camera I've ever shot with and do not care to own another.

Only 15 ounces and produces images that rival others from my prosumer friends.

FujiFilm has done a wonderful job with the X-series line. I hope to afford newer models when presented. Bravo!

Looks like it has a hybrid (optical and electronic)
viewfinder. We will fix that up soon, thanks.

This is entirely each and every persons personal taste and opinion which should not be scrutinized.

Couldn't be happier with this camera! A camera producing substantial image quality in a far more portable (than DLSR) package!

For the first time since I've been using digital cameras, I got hold of a camera from whose images I don't get disappointed when seeing them on a computer monitor. They could have made a few things differently, but I think X100 is just amazing. It's beautiful and it takes extraordinary photos, and it never disappoints you even in low light settings.

Nice.. but no interchangeable lens?!?!?!?! They would have sold twice as many!.. maybe next version.

Yes @731cdb4a69852fceeca2481a0692d0c5:disqus , Strangely is a success! At Amazon (.com and .co.uk) are sold out and are now accepting pre-orders.
It's good to know that i'm not the only one looking for professional compact, DSLR comparable, camera (bonus for retro-looking)

Have they sold one?
