Fujifilm FinePix X100
Fujifilm FinePix X100.

The Fujifilm FinePix X100 has a novel optical / electronic viewfinder overlay that is worth taking a look at if you're planning on visiting the show. The front switch is used to switch between the different optical / electronic views, and the lens has a manual aperture ring around it (as well as an Auto position).

The top has a number of manual controls, and dials for exposure, shutter speed, function button and flash hotshoe.

The screen on the back is bright, and the electronic spirit level is a useful feature. The camera's focusing speed was slower than some people had wished for - and it does seem to focus at roughly the same speed as a compact digital camera, although I have not done any scientific testing, so this is just my general hands-on opinion.

Update:

Fujifilm FinePix X100
Very much a rangefinder style camera, but without the rangefinder focusing system.

Aperture ring and lens hood.
Fujifilm X100 menu
One of the menus. Dynamic Range bracketing is one of the options, along with 5fps shooting.
Fujifilm X100 ISO.
ISO starts at 100 goes up to 12800.

The autofocus lag is appalling.

Read and inwardly digest. It is a great disappointment.

It's pity that in in the first shot of the x100 the eyes are drawn to a badly bitten thumb nail on the hand holding the camera!

Never mind the chewed thumbnail the camera looks top quality & very retro reminds me of cameras I had in the 60's. Bit pricey for a fixed lens non zoom though.
