I've read the manual but I was looking for 1st hand experience.
Thank you anyway,

The Leica frame line accuracy varies with focal length. At 50mm on the M9 it is about 93%. It goes up as FL increases and down as FL decreases. Also varies with distance to subject. Optimized for around .7M distance.
Exactly. With that in mind, the M has interchangeable lenses.
The X100 with just a single focal length should be as accurate or better.
I'm just wondering from a X100 user, how is the accuracy?
I think that the OVF is key to the camera.
Lol any truth in this
That is interesting isn't it?
Just read the thread. I feel somewhat deflated after reading about the focus speed. Hey ho. ui suppose it will save me a grand. Was going to get it for streeet shots. did anyone who handled the camera have any comments regarding shutter lag?
Before you get too upset, I would take these posts with a grain of salt. Here is a link to posts by a UK chap that actually has a production unit.
The other news is that fuji have so many pre-orders they are expanding production.

Thanks for the link. It made very interesting reading..
I have also noticed a few other websites selling the X100 for £899 sterling. Maybe the price drop from £999 will happen much sooner rather than later.
My guess is, there`s a bunch of units floating around not all using the same version of firmware.
I tried a Fuji X100 today at Focus and had no issues with the speed of focus whatsoever; the camera with a snazzy retro design seemd to handle well; would I buy one? ........ Not atm but only because I just really just don't need one.
Either there was a group of Leica philes trying to create FUD about the AF or they had cameras with older prerelease firmware. So far, they seem to be the only ones complaining about AF and certainly not from people that have actual released cameras in hand.
I spoke to Fuji about the concern and it was suggested that maybe the modes could have been fiddled around with before Mike picked it up. So it may not have been at the optimum setting.
One of Fuji's management team said that we should not expect the same speed as an SLR as the designers had a choice of creating a bigger bulkier camera with fastest focus or a smaller one with more moderate speed focusing.
You have to remember that the applications this is designed for is not needing sports speed AF.
I got the chance to look at one today and it seemed fine. I tried a second and the battery was flat.
We will of course be doing a thorough test of the camera soon and can compare with SLRs and other similar compact models.
it will be interesting to read a "hands on" test of the camera; what I also liked about the Fuji was it's relative simplicity compared to the DSLRs in my armoury; from my point of view it wouldn't a bad back up camera for wedding photography .... still not going to buy it as I have a camera already that fits that role.

From memory I think shutter lag is 0.1 sec
