At the risk of appearing to talk amongst myself
here's another update, this one for our UK members. The BJP is reporting
that "Fujifilm now says that the camera [X100] will be on show at Focus On Imaging
for four days from 06 March, allowing UK photographers to get, for the first time, their hands on the new model, ahead of its expected launch."
I'm not one for such shows normally and, annoyingly, I'll be at the NEC a few days later in another capacity but I'll put the 6th to the 9th of March in my diary and see if an opportunity to visit presents itself. No promises, though...
Mind you, if the BJP is correct in it's prediction of a thoroughly disgraceful £1200 list price (c.f. $1200 in the States) then I might just present Fujifiilm with a suitable hand gesture from the comfort of my armchair.
Thanks to Bjorn who, in a subsequent post, pointed out that Park Cameras show an RRP of £1,020.99 and, by implication, the BJP predicted price was a load of bull droppings: no hand gestures needed.
