Arrggghhh. Too late. Upgraded last night.
I haven't used manual focussing much on the X100, everything I have tried today seems OK (all AF though).
What's the problem?

In a nutshell, it doesn't lock on focus. It is completely random. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. I found that in most cases it won't lock on. For instance, I try and focus on something three feet away but it sets a focal plane of 6 foot despite the target being high contrast and 'the obvious focus target'.

I await another box from Fuji. Check out www.x100forum.com. It seems this issue is quite prevalent.

As for the SAB i've heard that a new lens unit is the standard fix.
I wish they could change the lens for one that doesn't flare as easy Sad
