For those waiting for a much improved X-20, the waits over. Enter the X-30. At first glance there seems a lot to like about this camera. My only immediate concern would be just how well the 2/3 sensor is going to be in comparison the the larger 1′ sensors sported by the new Panasonic & Sony cameras.
The original EXR sensor in the XS1 and the X10 were very good ( and still are , if a little old.) The new X-trans II sensor and EXRII processor should go a long way to keeping Fuji in the hunt in the premium compact market. It will be interesting to see the initial comments from early adopters of this new camera.
