Its more want than need Herman - I now have 6 digital cameras (Pany GH1, Samsung EX1, Fuji HS10, Fuji Z1 and an infra red Canon G5). The deal was too good to miss but I'm a bit unpopular with the wife.
Thanks Armando. Might have to sell the GH1 and 3 more lenses.
There are two separate clubs forming, the X100 jpeg club and the X100 raw club. You MUST decide which to join!
OK, kidding - its just that jpegs are actually a good option with this camera, even for some died in the wool raw shooters! CONGRATULATIONS! For all of its little quirks, this camera is just a stone blast to shoot with. Have fun!
Bill, I'm so surprised and very happy for your new addition! See what you think of her, not your wife - the camera, and if you do fall for the X100 I bet you'll find some counter weights to jettison. Again - not your beloved wife, but another camera.
Hey, Bill. Congratulations on your new x100. You are most certainly welcome in "JPEGland" and "RAWland" simultaneously. Personally I find myself crossing back and forth across town lines all the time.
I think you will really find the X100 quite the imaging tool. Good luck.

Thanks David. It was a very poorly exposed picture but I was determined to do something with it...ultimately I think it's a bit intense, but kind of liked it with the Australian flag in color. Did it w/o selective color to - which I put on Flickr to compare.
Well it arrived on Wednesday but I was in hospital (see here). By Thursday I weakened and asked my lovely wife to visit me and since she was coming in to bring the camera. It came with a charged battery and 4GB card so was able to have a play - very impressed - love the VF and the solid feel. Now at home I'm still familiarising myself but hope to get out and about a bit more this week coming. There's gotta be a better option than a friction fit lens cap or an expensive hood.
