Wha....what? $1200? I don't care if it's cheaper than a Leica, doesn't Fujifilm want to sell more than a few hundred of them?

I've been collecting beans to get just this. I learned photography on a very similar camera: a 35mm fixed lens rangefinder. I'm afraid this will sell more than Fuji can produce, since it promises to combine a really good relatively fast lens (check up the price on a 35mm 2.0) with a decent sensor, in a nostalgia look with an innovative viewfinder concept. Since all cameras that seem to be perfect on paper have something go wrong in real life, I wonder what the flaw in this camera will be.

I will. But I've spent my photography equipment budget for 2011 with the acquisition of an ultra wide angle for my current cameras. After a complete reshuffling of gear in 2010 (selling almost everything in my Four Thirds equipment, and using the money from that to downsize to Micro Four Thirds), I've decided to sit this year out. I'm interested in this camera, but also in the new professional mFT that is rumored to be introduced this year, and in the lenses Carl Zeiss and others will be able to introduce for mFT. I'm not running in the trap of collecting gear one by one again, so this will hopefully be a year of just using what I have. In november, hopefully more is clear about the direction I'll be taking with this hobby, and by then, all bets are off. It also gives me some time to collect more beans. :-)
