...with your fancy talking and top drawer images.
The battery's charging as I type...

Allright guys, we got Russ to make a move...
Hmmmm who's next.....
Congrats to Russ, and anyone else who makes the jump. I'm extremely envious.
Congrats Russ. It's a lovely camera. I had a play with one the other day as my "local" dealer has a few in stock. If I liked the 35mm focal length I'd be all over one in a second.
Congratulations, Russ! I knew you were itchin' for the X100. Can't wait to see those pictures!
First few taken this morning -
I'm so excited for you, Russ! I've already fallen for that horse in your top photo.
How do you find the camera?
It reminds me of my old Contax G2, the way the aperture ring is on the lens and both shutter speed and exposure compensation are on the top plate. This is a good thing.
But yes, the menu system leaves a lot to be desired. I also find the Menu/OK button too small and keep selecting the flash control or shooting mode control by mistake.
My appeal to Fuji would be to allow the Fn button to be set as a "Quick Menu" button a la LX3, giving instant access to ISO, WB, AF mode, metering mode etc etc.
But, like my old Contax (which I traded in against a D300) it's a camera that just invites you to take photos. Love it.
Thanks, Russ. That quick menu idea is a good one. Let's hope for some good fixes in the upcoming firmware update. Meanwhile, I am so glad that you are pleased with your choice.
Just for BB, another GG --
What a beauty! I hope you put these up on Flickr, so that I can wax poetic. I feel as though I'm right next to her.
