Summary: We are spoiled when it comes to cameras now. There are a million great choices with better ones coming out seemingly every week. Why would you get this camera or the new X100s rather than one that is faster at focusing, has interchangeable lenses, or all the other features you may think you want?
Summary: This is a great camera and I'd recommend it to anyone. This size and weight is perfect, the lens is sharp and the sensor is excellent producing great image quality.

Recent (January 2014) review for those considering

Summary: Quick background: I'm an amateur photographer who normally shoots with a Nikon D5100 and a 35mm prime. I also use a Sony NEX3, and was using a Samsung NX200 quite often before selling it to pick up this used Fujifilm X100.
Summary: Have had this camera for a year now- first, our relationship was one of strangers. It then developed into more of a professional one and soon moved on, becoming a friendship. Well now we are lovers. This is one beautiful camera.
Summary: Fuji did something extraordinary. They released the most significant firmware update for this camera. Version 2.0 solves ALL issues of the already excellent X100. It turns the X100 into a new camera (hence mk III, after firmware release v1.0 and v1.2). Autofocus speed and accuracy?
Summary: Lots have been said about the autofocus on this camera. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it out. It locked immediately with no issues at all. It was way faster than I thought it'd be. The firmware is 1.30. I think Fuji really improved the autofocus with firmware updates.
