  1. I wonder how much will this cost. I think this might be expensive because of the really good specs. I want to buy a camera for my brother because he always borrows mine. I wish I could afford this.

    1. The price range is from 30 to 65K...

  2. The look is so 60s! Nice! The specs are also good. Hope that Fujifilm succeeds in this enterprise.

    1. Your right about that, they are a nice retro look.

  3. The new trend is now having the handy, sleek and powerful cameras and Fuji Films X100 and X20 would fit well here.

  4. Wow! I like the camera, any how much is the SRP of the said cameras?
