I think I just feel such a fraud, walking along with a "proper camera"! I want to look like a tourist with a p & s!!! I have considered getting an EMP2 and using the Panasonic 14mm I already have but that would be just as expensive plus I'd like the silent shutter of the X100.

I just got the X10 but my feeling is that it's pretty tough going back to non Fuji build quality after tasting it !! Not to mention the X100 chip is just head and shoulders above all the other cited options... Come on, you know you want one ;)

It's a done deal, only question is which one? X100 or X100s. Ray is my voice of reason. Wait and see for a few more weeks!

It looks like you have plenty of time before your trip. If it were me I'd wait until the X100s hits the street. Prices of the X100 should drop when the X100s becomes available and you'll know if the it delivers as promised. Personally, I would do it just for the focus peaking and fast AF.

Fast AF yes, but I truly do NOT GET THE POINT of MF assist (peaking and split screen) for a fixed lens cam ?!?

Just ONE example would be for doing some close focus work. A close-up of a flower and you want your focus on the pistil, but the AF grabs the high contrast point RIGHT NEXT TO it. I rarely manual focus my X100, but when I want to, I would certainly like to have those new features. Not necessary, but nice to have.

Yes that make a lot of sense, but still giving TWO af assists feature to a fixed lens cam seems a little overkill, when the interchangeable bodies still don't have Peaking...

Well, it's not a matter of anyone using both. Some people love focus peaking. Others hate it and prefer the split screen. It's probably the more traditional shooters among us in the second group. Many manual-focus film SLRs had the split screen. So it's not a matter of overkill as much as a matter of choice. As for the interchangable-lens cameras not even offering peaking, you've got me there.

I would take a look at some of the stuff on theX100S, it looks REALLY good. That said if you really want an X100, I'll give you a good deal on mine once I get the X100S. I was planning on keeping it but I would sell it to you at a very favorable price, no problem shipping to England.
I would get the X100S though.

I'm getting another one sometime soon. It's a one of a kind and once tasted its hard to forget.
