    Ok, ok -- just for fun really.
    But people, help me with with my guilt here.
    A while ago, I pre-ordered the X100s, therefore it has already been bought.
    Then after this occasion, just recently I'm in a shop with my very understanding and tolarent other half. I say I want to look at the camera section, just to see if the X100s is in stock. She replies, saying "oh you're not going to buy it are you?"
    Now technically, it's already bought (just not yet received), so I replied (with a smile) "off course not". My logic being, of course I'm not going to buy it (because it's already bought).

    Am I lying or telling the truth ?

    Technically you're lying if your credit card has yet to be charged for the X100S you pre-ordered - you haven't 'bought' it yet.

    Eric, come on man I need your support here.
    The camera was dispatched yesterday, and my account was debited today.
    Hopefully it arrives tomorrow.
    This pre-order, and debit only upon dispatch is grey area, no ? :confused:

    You may not technically be lying, but you're not telling the relevant part of the truth either.

    In any case, enjoy the camera!

    LOL.... Well, luckily my wife knows me all too well.... The vague response I gave with the smile, she read me like a book... Her question was half sarcastic anyway, with the view of "he's got GAS again". I'm lucky enough that I won't be needing bandages (I hope!).

    It's not yours until it's in your hands :)

    Your ok, it was just a skip around the question, that they should know better than to ask hehehe

    if I had that conversation with my husband it would have gone like this,

    "Your not going to buy one are you?"

    "Now you know you shouldn't ask me those kinds of questions! lol"

    We took a vote in our home. I think you're being very honest, my wife thinks you're lying, and the two kids are split :).
