If you really want to treat yourself how about the sexy Fuji x100 limited edition black kit + flash.

Ok the x100s ships soon, but the x100 is still a very good performer, if you don`t need the blindingly fast autofocus.

There is a review here.

Or just wait for the new fuji x20 compact ships costing around 500, and spend the change on a lovely holiday.

IMO - id go for the X100s. Ive been through the same thought process and came to the decision that if i need a camera with changable lenses ill just use my DSLR.

The X100s will be my walk around, on my all the time camera and figured that the X-E1 will just make me worry about bashing the lens, which sticks out a bit more than the x100s

Ive Pre Ordered an X100s and cant wait. Already made a list of projects to start when I get itSmile

Also, the X Pro 2 is due at the end of the year / start of next year.

Paul, that is a sweet deal and a holiday would be very welcome. I think the speedier focus on the s sort of does make a difference for what I do really. But mmmm.

George, I agree about the the lenses, I do see that a job for my 700. I too have a deposit down all be it only 5 so I am not worried about losing it.

Thoughts ping ponging around now......... A nice problem to have of course.

This new x20 that is coming out promises phase detection autofocus and a few other improvements over the x10, and there nice fun quality compacts made of metal, not plastic Smile

At this rate of indecision I might just go to Vegas and blow the lot! X20, nice looking and I am sure will be a great camera - but more waiting......

Paul you are producing some great results with you X10.

The thing is I`m not going to recommend that you get a CSC, the problem is that people get hooked, so the initial cost of a body and lens soon becomes a whole lot more Smile

Yeh the x10 is still a good camera, it generally always seems to do well in group reviews, think it won a red dot award two years in a row, but I believe this x20 is going to be the dogs whatsits.

For me its the leaf shutters in these camera`s that make them really good, great for strobist stuff, flash sync`s at all speeds with none dedicated manual flash via a dumb lead.

Paul is right about not getting a CSC. You will find your DSLR gathering dust if you do! Wink

Good video, Paul - thanks for sharing. Smile

Quite something - the claim the latest Panasonic pro lenses out-perform their Nikon and Canon equivalents! That will ruffle a few feathers. Lol! Grin

Don`t know why the insert video feature no longer works Sad

I was out today with the GF2 and three lenses, the whole lot only weighed about 700 grams Smile

Gosh - can you shoot video that good with them as well?

Regardless of technical quality, I've always wanted to watch a film of a fat American talking into a lampshade against an in focus cluttered background about nigh cons. I can only guess what they are.

I'm tempted by the Panasonic fast zooms, but that film's kind of put me off...

I was referring to x100 not x100s which will have better sensor and processor.
