I'm currently tapped out or I would be doing this, but in terms of bang for the buck, if I were picking up a smaller camera to go where my Pentax dSLR is awkward, I'd buy a Nikon Coolpix P7100. This camera is discontinued, but still available new or refurb for half the cost of your Fuji selections. Like the Fuji's, the P7100 has (mandated for me) an optical viewfinder in addition to the LED.

Follow up.... I have (for the time being) decided on the option I previously dismissed out of hand!

When the K-01 price dropped to $250, I bought one. At that price, even if I ultimately decide that I don't like it, I won't regret the purchase.
