    A price reduction on the Fuji X100, no doubt in anticipation of the arrival of the X100s:

    Indeed. My local shop is selling their last one (a display model) for that price. To me, the advancements the X100S offers makes it seem foolish to not pay the extra $300 for the upgraded model if you are buying new, but if the price were say $800 I may very well reconsider that position.

    I'm surprised. We are usually way more than the US, pricewise... right now if I wanted, I could buy a new X100 for $824 from one of our discount places.

    I agree... the few improvements that the X100s offers over the X100 are disproportionately important to the shooting experience - particularly with this type of camera. That means a bigger discount is warranted on the outgoing camera. Certainly by the time the X100s actually hits the shelves and is readily available, I can't see the X100 selling for more than $700-750 U.S.

    $800 including a case is very good value (although I guess some tax has to be added on to that). That's about the price you pay including tax but - without a case - in the UK.
    I'm tempted by a 6-month old used example going for £399.

    Actually,
    No tax is paid on those products because they're sold through AAFES (Army Air Force Exchange Service).....:)

    Too bad my cousin isn't into photography as he is in the US Air Force. Those are some good deals.
