The hotly anticipated Fujifilm X100 has just landed in the Photography Blog office! The X100 is already in such short supply worldwide that we’ve splashed out our own cash and actually bought one, just so that we can bring you our usual in-depth review in a timely fashion. We don’t usually photograph the contents of a camera’s box, but the X100 is supplied in such a luxurious one, complete with mock silk lining, that we felt a photo gallery of our Fujifilm X1000 unboxing was worth sharing.

We’ll be bringing you some X100 sample photos in the next few days, fickle UK weather permitting. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the X100, just shout out in the Comments and we’ll do our best to answer them…

You folks must have some clout, I'm still waiting for my us version which I pre-ordered from last month.

Looks like you got the official UK model with English instructions and UK plug, no 'Sample' on the rear label either.

I'm tempted to fly to Land of the Sun and get one for myself, lol.

Yeah, so how far are we from getting some real results on the performance of this much anticipated camera? I'd be interested in knowing the timings of the camera. How fast is in handling focus, primarily in low light conditions. Timings for raw capture. The software provide for the raw. Historically they have opted for less impressive or just plain expensive software. The 35mm equiv. lens has it got in camera /lens correction filtering working, also for raw?

That sort of stuff.

Got mine today too in the UK. I've been having a blast tonight figuring it out. I did get somewhat confused as to why the artificial horizon didn't show in the optical viewfinder, despite being 'set' to do so.

The manual was a bit week here and I eventually found that your CURRENT view (Optical / EVF / LCD) changes independently when Disp/Back is pressed.

Exposure is cracking, white balance excellent, extremely nice ergonomics. Manual focus was slow, but I loved the magnify in the viewfinder, just like using live view in a Canon DSLR but in the viewfinder!

Not the fastest autofocus I've seen either, nor was the write speed fast.

However, the ergonomics, quality of controls and feel of the camera are wonderful and the film stock type effects work very nicely.

I'm a very happy purchaser and look forward to your reviews.

My friend has one. He moans about the speed of the autofocus, saying it's slower than the Leica equivalent. It looks as though lots of people will be loving the looks but moaning about the guts of the camera!

Wanted it as my 'belt' camera as use it for parties, dinner out, indoor etc but will not buy it as it does not have any IS. What a disappointment.

Please test how long will the battery last when using the camera with only an optical viewfinder and no picture review/no LCD use (or any condition as close to a film camera as possible). Thank you very much.

If I were to buy a camera more on "Loving the look", this would not be the one. Each to their own I suppose but in my mind it's Butt ugly!

Thank you for fronting up the cash so that we might learn more about this camera faster!

I've had a quick play with a pre-production version & wondered if there is any focus confirmation when focusing manually?

(I'm used to shooting with Canon DSLR's and enjoy seeing the dot in the view finder when my manual focus is what the camera believes is correct focus (actually I really miss the old split screen view finders).

Also, how does the dynamic range setting on the camera work? A sample shot I saw showed fantastic performance capturing highlight - shadow detail.

And yes, I'm very keen to read a comparison of its shutter response and image write-to-card times compared with competition such as Leica x-1, Pansonic GF-1&2, Olympus PEN1&2, Sigma DP2 and also the Ricoh GXR 50mm macro kit.

Finally, how many of the buttons can be assigned to the user's function preferences?

Thanks very very much!!

So basically, auto-focus is slow (ish), write speeds are slow, and manual focus is slow? EBAY!
