^I wish they would improve the lens but I doubt it will happen anytime soon, the bokeh is sometimes weird wide open with contrasty backgrounds.
a 50mm conversion lens would be sweet!
sensor has been improved with the new X-Trans II but I'm seriously hoping that Adobe releases an update to LR4 to support X-Trans better.
EVF has also been improved from 1.4M dots to 2.36M dots.
it will be exciting to see what the new version of the X-Pro1 and XE-1 will be.
one thing I'm disappointed with the X100s is they haven't fixed the menu button and wheel on the back. (annoying to access the menu when you have gloves on, like an eskimo doing surgery)
overall though, I've been happy with the X100, took it out to the mountains yesterday morning then family b-day party in the afternoon, more convenient to carry around than a DSLR.
i think it looks very good from the front and ergonomically i like the top. the back side both looks cheap and is not designed well for my use.
i'm quite tempted by this camera, they seem to have fixed all my complaints except for being overly tall to accomodate the ovf (i'll only use the evf) and not having a flip-up lcd. i must decide whether to get one of these or the rx1...
if you're not a fan of the OVF/EVF then IMO the X100 is not the camera for you. it's one of the main reason why some prefer it over other mirrorless cameras.
I played with the RX1 for a bit and while it takes amazing pictures at 1.4, I didn't enjoy handholding it, also I like shooting with a VF and it doesn't come cheap with the RX1.
I like my X100 because it compliments my Leica when I don't feel like going MF all the time.
