I was in NY yesterday for the CloudForce meeting at the Javits convention center.(A computer geek thing, don't worry about it), and son of a gun! This mid-western boy found himself actually walking by B&H! The place he has sent money to so many times on faith alone! Convention be damned! My shoes actually forced me into their building. So Cool! I never saw a camera shop with roped off waiting lines in front of sales clerks who waited like priests waiting to take confession before. (Forgive me, Canon, I had impure thoughts about Olympus) But to the point. I got to actually hold both "X"s there. I really liked both of them very much. The X10 felt VERY good in my hand as a compact. I had been wanting a Canon G12, but I'm pretty certain now that X10 is the way to go for me. . . BUT! The X100 felt like a camera of substance and means. I want one of them too! I loved the OVF, the size and the 'heft'. Curiously, I felt the EVF option, while cool, was kind of redundant. Considering the sort of things I like to shoot and how I like to shoot them, combined with the single lens option, the electronic viewscreen would seem to be more comfortable and as likely to be used by me when I need a TTL view. To me, the EVF option should be in an ILC type camera, not a fixed lens camera. I wonder why Fuji seems to be distancing itself from the dual VF concept? At any rate, I suspect I will be buying an X10 in February and wait and see what the Fuji ILC camera is like in 2013.
