I've been holding off getting a bridge replacement for awhile last was a Canon S3IS, i'm hoping this X90 gets better reviews versus it's first incarnation. Anyone knows if this is another Fujifilm rebranded product? (i think it was fujifilm with the first 90?)

And it looks like they were listening to ME, a voice in the widerness...

about sore Anglo-Saxon noses because of poor viewfinder-screen clearance. This one has SIGNIFICANT clearance.

Yay!

Look like an impressive little beast.

The W90 looks very rugged.
Looks ready for the outdoors and whatever knocks and bumps it would encounter!

I think the X90 looks good. I might like to take one with me on vacation this summer, rather than carrying a DSLR body and lenses.

Anybody know when it should be available in the USA?

Neither X90 or W90 will have K-X sensor.

A P&S will NEVER (I don't count Sigma DPx and Leica's cameras as P&S) have an APS-C sensor.

Maybe the same type but not the same sensor as it would be APS-C size.
Maybe smaller with high ISO capability? That would be nice!
