Waiting for Godot… the X100S “under review (?)” at AmazonUS

You probably know Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot” (wikipedia your Amazon), where two homeless men are waiting for Godot, but he never arrives.

Well, we are not looking for Godot, but for the X100S. Announced at the 7th of January (but FR told you about it for first already weeks before), in stock for the first time in late March for a very short time, now it almost disappeared from stores. And so we are here, waiting for our pre-ordered X100S to come, but nothing happens.

And now this: I’ve checked the X100S status at Amazon every day. They said “in stock in 1-3 weeks”, “in stock in 1-3 months”, “in stock in 3-5 weeks” and now AmazonUS says “ITEM UNDER REVIEW” Here is the full text. What went wrong with AmazonUS?:

“Item Under Review: While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.com because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it’s described here. (Thanks for the tip!) We’re working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.”

btw, I also believe that Fuji was surprised by the high demand for this camera and has now problems to deliver the camera to the stores. As you know, Fuji announced to cut down the compact camera lineup by 50%. It’s a good news: let’s focus on the X-series and not waste energy into bottom-end models.

Fuji, concentrate your power on the X-series, everything else is just distraction!

We started with Godot and therefore we have to find an absurd final for this story: so, while nobody knows when the X100S will be in stock at AmazonUS, the guys over at dealsrunner.com just found it in stock at AmazonUK (shipped and sold by AmazonUK). And if you find them in stock too, subscribe to dealsrunner and spread the word!
