Various Fujifilm X100S and FinePix x20 tidbits, and the conclusion of the Fuji press Event.
 
  • Fujifilm produced 130.000 X100 cameras during 2012. The demand was far higher than what they anticipated, and at times they struggled to produce enough cameras. The natural disasters that occurred in japan and Thailand also played their role in this.
  • Fujifim senses there is an  increased level of interest this year, after the announcement of the X100S (and X20) and will be better prepared to increase production if needed.
  • The new 55-200mm lens is slated for an April release. Fujifilm will of course honor its published lens road map, but also expand on it. 
  • Price for the X100S will be $1300 and for the X20 $600. European, and especially photographers from the UK will of course pay a whole lot more that that, A.K.A "the Royal Euro Screwjob". Availability is said to be end of March 2013.
  • The X100S can now be pre-ordered at Amazon.com
  • Peta-Pixel has a couple of videos showing of the Digital Split Image feature of the X100S
  • Photo-Rumors has a collection of X100S and X20 hands-on, demo and promo videos.
