Hi. My new, "hardly used" (that's what the listing said) Fuji X100 is boxed, sealed, insured, and on the way from Brownsville TX! Heck, that's just next door; it should be here in no time! (he tells himself anxiously) It's got a serial # starting 21A0xxx..., so I'm hoping to be reasonably safe from sticky shutter issues, nonetheless the seller said he'd send me the receipt, and I may well buy a shutterbug warranty. We'll see. With the exception of the E-300, the E-P1, the D-Lux 4, and the OM-D, most of my camera purchases have been the second to last model, so I'm right on track. My first 35mm SLRs -- OM's -- were bought used at Ferranti-Dege in Harvard Square, now closed, alas! Anyone else jumping in and taking advantage of the lowered prices on the X100, please jump in. I'm thrilled to be getting it. I pondered a long while about waiting until I could afford a used (of course) Leica X1, since they say the lens is sharper, especially at the corners wide open. But finally I decided that 1.) I did not want to wait for a fixed lens 35mm EFL, 2.) the functionally of the Leica was way behind the Fuji and would require the purchase of an optical viewfinder (if I did not want to put the weighty, FSU turret finder I already have on it, 3.) The Fuji lens was plenty good and in situations where I'd be shooting wide open the corners were unlikely to matter much and 4.) the images I've seen from it are just wonderful. I'm also impressed by Fuji's successive firmware updates to problems or "issues", seriously improving the camera through software thoughout its life. The hybrid finder played a big part in my decision; it just seems to be everything I want in a finder. Having the optical immediacy plus the shooting information available is simply brilliant. There also seems to be enough space around the actual image area in either mode that glasses wearers will have it easy. I'll undoubtedly bore you with some "first shots" when it arrives. Meantime, please share your "got an X100 now they're a bargain" stories and pictures."
