http://www.dpreview.com/previews/fujifilm-x30 From a technology viewpoint, I would've liked either a larger sensor or a faster lens. Right now, only the RX100 series and G1X series outperform it among compact zoom cameras, but I think/hope that'll change before Photokina is over. As it is currently, it's priced just about right compared to the composition, and it'll undoubtedly make a fine camera even better, but I'm not sure that'll be enough in a month's time. The thing I'm most enthusiastic about is oddly enough the "classic chrome" film simulation, which is supposed to look like Kodachrome. Don't think they'll offer it on an X100 update, but still it'll be nice to see what they come up with.
