    For those on G+ if you follow David Hobby he is currently posting limited info about his pre production X100s experiences

    "I love my original X100, but this thing's volume dial goes to 11, as Spinal Tap would say. The chip is much improved (from an already very good chip) and the focus is damn-near instantaneous."

    "I do not see myself lugging a DSLR again anytime soon."

    It's not surprising he has one and I expect Zack Arias has one too as both him and David are speaking about them at Gulf Photo Plus soon (event info). Looking forward to hearing what they have to say, hopefully via a blog post somewhere.

    "Damn! I was hoping they would release a another firmware upgrade for the x100 before the x100s came out! "

    "+Jazel Bagsic I'll see them this week and suggest they not forget the X100 users."
