I have been lurking in the X-shadows for a while. As I posted elsewhere in this forum, I'm looking for a (slightly) more compact complement to my K5 kit. I would also love to have a good 35mm equivalent lens, and the X100 ticks both of these boxes with superb IQ to boot, from all that I've seen and read. With X100s on the horizon, one might also hope that the price of the original might come down to the $700-$800 level (or lower!?!). So my question is: have all of the irritating aspects of the camera that I have read about been corrected by the various and sundry firmware updates? If not, what is still problematic? I'm mainly concerned with (a) the operational sluggishness (slow write times, certain functions locking up while writing to card, etc.) (b) autofocus speed and accuracy (c) manual focus. The announcement makes it seem that the X100s fixes all the various complaints about the X100 and ups the IQ at the same time. But I'm not sure I want to spend $1300 and frankly the X100 IQ is already superb. So, post-firmware, is the X100 now an operational dream machine too? Inquiring, acquisitive wannabe X-men (and women, presumably) want to know. Thanks!
