UPDATE: Engadget is now quoting a selling price of $1,000 for the X100 and a ship date of March 2011. They also have a short video of one of their guys pawing the camera; the main news conveyed in the video is that the show model has no sensor of any kind in it and although the viewfinder apparently works, little else does. (Thanks to Joanne for the tip.)
Commentary on the Update: Before speculation goes much further I should point out that the selling price almost certainly hasn't even been set yet. Even Fuji doesn't know what it's going to be. Setting the selling price in various markets is one of the last things that's done prior to shipping a new model camera, and often it's a rather comically last-minute task that causes lots of tearing of hair and rending of garments within the corporate corridors. So don't put too much stock in any advance report. —Mike

Featured Comment by Carsten Bockermann: "I handled a prototype today at Photokina. It did have the AF mode switch (as shown in the photo at the top) while the printed brochures show the camera without this switch. The finder is excellent. Very bright, with the electronically generated framelines and other info very clearly visible. The German-language brochure says 'available in early 2011.'"
