Nice video. That's the first I saw the silver - that will be the one. Also the first I saw the little flash that comes with it.

If/when I buy another piece of gear, I'm pretty sure this will be it depending on the real world tests and results.

Think Mrs. Rupert might find out she needs (2) of these - one to see how it works on the squirrels up north......??

That looks an awful lot like my silver X20...a damn good looking camera! I see they put some nice metal dials on it too, and appear to have outdone Fuji on the retro look. Someone was thinking smart when they designed this camera! Good looks help sell cameras, cars, or most anything else. I've never heard a guy say....."I'm going shopping for an ugly girlfriend that functions well".

Soon I will have two Toy Cameras that match my Toy Car! What could be better than that!!


Regards!

I looked around - seems only the black is available for pre-order right now. Might work out well if the silver version becomes available a little later. We'll get to see some real results in the meantime. Just hoping the silver version will actually be available in the US.......

Hmm ... the LX100 looks kinda HUGE in that article, almost the same size (it seems) as the A6000+kit lens.

Might have to feel and touch this before making any decisions.

Anyone has comparison photos between the LX100 and the A6000? I know there is that camera comparison site that jogiba uses all the time - I can't remember what the URL is.

Thanks so much!

The A6000 is almost the same size, and actually lighter.

Suddenly a lot less interested in the LX100.

Yea the RX100 Mk III is made to look tiny next to it.
