Fuji Finepix X100. Finally. A camera manufacturer with some cojones.
This just got announced by Fuji. It's the camera a lot of people have been waiting for. It's a super high quality, fixed lens, large (APS-C) sensor camera from a company that builds exquisite (and very low noise) sensors. It's 12 megapixels and the MTF charts that they published on DPReview.com are just incredible.
Note that the lens is an f2. You have a choice of using an optical viewfinder or imitating aunt Myrtle and holding the machine at arm's length to compose on the rear screen. I'd assume that, with no mirror, the shutter sound will be......demure.
Small, light, fast, super high quality imaging, incredible styling (with many nods toward the old Leica M's) and so much more. The only real questions are: How much will it cost? And, When can I get my hands on one?
