    Amazon.co.uk are offering the X10 for £449.98 as i write this. Click here.

    Apparently other companies are doing the same so hopefully this should be the same overseas. Not long to wait now!

    It's all to do with the retailers talking to Fuji and getting a fixed purchase price. The RRP may well be £529.99 but if the shops buy them for say £400 each then it's up to the shops how much mark up they want to put on. It also probably depends on how many the retailer is willing to order.

    Maybe we'll get lucky over here in the states and see a couple of pre-orders show up in the next week or so.

    I also am interested. Its all going to depend (for me) on the quality of the viewfinder, as well as IQ

    I'm waiting this time to see what it's like in real life. And look at some photos that it takes first.

    The Fuji Guys just tweeted the X10 will retail for $599.99 CAD. My currency converter says that's 567.91 US. Not bad. Now, about those high ISO sample files.

    You're convinced I'm going to buy one ;). I'm really really interested in getting an adanced compact for my girlfriend. She loves the pictures that come out of my E-P1 and E-PL2, but she doesn't want to carry around anything that big.

    Initially limited quantities may call for higher prices. I'd wait.

    I'll be waiting. But, given the superzoom thats coming too, I may just wait for that, instead. Can't have both! (or can I...)

    That's a good price.
    I like Harrisons ; I bought my Leica gear there and would certainly recommend them.
