Curiosity factor: Fuji X100S review at Photography Blog
Big Sensor Prime action now with a review of Fuji's second generation APS-C Big Sensor Prime, the X100S, it has now been reviewed at Photography Blog which includes a variety of JPEG and RAW samples of the real-world and test-scene variety. If you are in a hurry, you can jump to the conclusions before jumping to conclusions.
Availability-wise, the X100S remains in Pre-Order State for $1300, while its predecessor, the first generation X100 goes for $1000 (OneCall, Amazon) but it is on its way out. The Fuji X100 is, as of the time of writing, discontinued at B&H Photo and Adorama and Best Buy and J&R.
See next paragraph below:
Given the newness of the X100S, perhaps the X100 would make more sense if purchased in the used market. As of the time of writing, you can get a used X100 in Good condition with battery and charger and six month non-transferable Adorama warranty for $690 by Adorama on Amazon. Look for them as the seller there! For a lower price and a shorter warranty, you can get it in E- condition from Adorama for $650 + shipping with a 90-day warranty and 30-day return policy.
As of a Friday 1:35am ET recheck, this has sold out...
UPDATE (7:37pm ET): The Fuji X100, USED (Very Good condition) is available now for $535 by Amazon Warehouse Deals (look for them as the seller). You get a 30-day return policy but no warranty.
