X-F1 looks quite interesting
Fuji XF1 specifications, features, price | Photo Rumors
I like the dual control wheels and the manual zoom.
Apparently they put in some sort of "bokeh bracketing", combining two exposures with different focus to create out of focus background. Sounds... odd :)
$499 doesn't seem too unreasonable.

That is one sexy little compact! 2/3 sensor too!! Looks better i think in silver/black but classic never the less. Can't wait to see it in the flesh.

If I can make just one person smile then I've had a good day!

So its basically a smaller, sexier (if I may) X10 without a viewfinder, with a wider but slower lens? I'd probably get the X10 if I was gonna get one of them, but its a purty little thing, as I guess I've commented on before.

That is a very good looking camera. I've been tempted by the X10, but I will go and have a look at this one.

The bokeh bracketing was actually something that I dreamed up in the shower a few weeks ago, although obviously Fuji beat me to the punch releasing it but yeah it shouldn't be too hard if you have the necessary processing power!

I wonder how this is going to stack up against the RX100 in low light? A bit smaller sensor, but half the pixels.
I am still not digging on the looks. Where the X10/X100/X-Pro1 look more like older cameras (i.e. classic), this one looks to me like a modern camera with a 3rd party leather skin on the body. Okay, that is a bit harsh... just seems like such a contrast between the clean modern top and bottom and the leatherette wrap.

Its the same sensor and EXR processor as the X10, so to get best low light you have to use the EXR binning, which means a bit over 1/4 the pixels as the RX100. But the X10 was useable up to about 200-2500 ISO, so not as good as the RX100 but surprisingly good nonetheless - the best compact I'd seen before the RX100.

Different, yes. Beautiful? Not so much.

I think it's really beautiful/elegant. I actually like the brown/tan more than the black.
