Fujifilm Finepix X100

A few weeks back I wrote that Fujifilm's Finepix X100 would probably have a UK price tag of around £700, and how I felt this was a bit steep and that if I was in the market, I would probably go for an entry-level DSLR and small fixed-focal lens, like Nikons' 35mm f/1.8 DX instead.

Well, Fujifilm have commercially launched the X100 now, and it's available to pre-order at many UK dealers for around £1000 (the RRP in the UK). Wow! Good luck with that Fujifilm!

We've not seen any reviews yet, but the image quality from this camera would have to be truly outstanding at this price point for it to become anything else than an expensive accessory for the style conscious person who has not yet discovered the Leica X1.

Still, if anyone from Fujifilm UK reads this and wants to ship me one for review....
