Fuji new camera - it is a vintage beauty

According to Canon Rumors which I had subscribed to my RSS, and then link to here, Fuji is going to launch one of the most loving camera!

Presenting you:

FinePix X100

Just how wonderful is this camera?
Let's look at the spec first:

And the image!

Oh man... don't you find it that it resemble the older days of the camera? The old Yashica and Nikon! Apparently, I bet this look even nicer than Leica M9.

In terms of look, definitely I will choose this. But for image wise, I have yet to see it. But from the news written, it is made by Fujinon to perfectly match the APS-C custom sensor. There is a newly-developed EXR Processor, which combines all the latest image processing technology Fujifilm has technology built up over the years.

I am very anxious toward this camera which will be commercial release early next year (2011).

Guess the price?

I bet 1K odd! Do not forget, they are using prime F2 lens at 23mm which is equivalent to 35mm. So there is a 1.5 crop factor.
