    Just came across these, seems it's a Fuji X20 japanese unboxing video, with accessories, in 2 parts.
    The good news is that the new lens hood comes with a protection filter that is screwed directly
    on the lens.

    Auto focus looks pretty good to me.

    Great looking camera! Like the way he did time lapse/stop motion to show the contents. I am not impressed with the lens cap though, press-on. I saw that Fuji has a real lenscap as an accessory. It is also part of the 3 piece kit of protective lens, hood and cap.

    My X20 is on preorder, and in the meanwhile i ordered the LHF-X20 accessory from Japan directly (hood/filter/cap) and it's actually gonna arrive much more sooner than the camera :)
    The big advantage over the previous LHF-X10 is that it comes with the protective filter that screws directly on the lens, not on the hood, so there's no more searching for third party filters that may or may not fit the weird thread size fuji has used on this lens.

    I had that happen when I ordered my iPad. I got the accessories long before I had the actual tablet!

    I already have a 3rd-party filter/hood combo that I bought off eBay. Problem is they're black and the X20 I ordered is silver...still I reckon it will lend it a nice extra bit of two-tone appeal :)

    I haven't found any third party equivalent to LHF-X20 on ebay :eek:, only to the X10 variant, but that one screws the filter on the hood and not on the lens, and is not that desirable in my opinion...

    This is the one that I bought: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320982008321?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
    It has a 40mm filter which goes on the lens, and as the X20 is the same externally as the X10 it *should* fit!

    Does the LHF-X20 allow you to use 52mm filters like the X10 did? In other words is the hood itself two pieces?

    It should, in the X20 PDF brochure it is referenced by "Lens hood (with adapter ring)", so I don't see why not.
    But I will be able to confirm in about 2 days when it arrives.

    I received my LHF-X20 and I can confirm it contains a protection filter that screws directly to the lens, a hood which can screw either to the lens or to the filter, and a 52mm cap, which goes on the hood. The hood is also threaded for 52mm filters where the cap snaps so you don't need an extra 39.5 (or 40 fwiw) to 52mm step-up ring.
