FujiFilm is on a roll IMO. Hope they have some demo units at Photo Expo in New York next month. They are also releasing a "pancake" 50mm early next year to go with.
Fuji also now has direct C1 support including tethering for those that prefer C1 to Lightroom.

The 100 MP-Fuji is more interesting for me. I just wonder if all the Canon TSE´s (especially 17, 24, 50, 90) are a good combination with this high resolution sensor. What do you think?
That is without a doubt the worst promotional video for a camera I have ever seen in my life. I mean I am watching it and thinking, umm what? If they didn't show the camera alone at the very end for two seconds you wouldn't even know it was a video promoting a camera.

I have a mild interest in the camera itself, but that video is an epic fail.
