    Alas, too late for my upcoming holiday trip. Still excited to see how this pans out though.

  • GreyOwl

    Well done Fuji for continuing to support the X100, that’s what I call very good customer service. I look forward to updating mine as soon as possible.

  • Dave

    I hope it’s the 16 megapixel upgrade. J/k

  • Marko

    Focus ->recompose->shoot..shoot shoot, would be nice.
    I hate that, Focus-> recompose->shoot, Focus-> recompose> shoot thing.

    • ben

      Marko, just program the ael button to lock the af. Then you have focus>recompose>shoot>(if you want to) lock af>shoot shoot shoot…

    Hey @ Marko I have found the best solution to this is to use your AFL (AUTO FOCUS LOCK) button and selecting it as the on/off setting in your set up menu. No longer will you need to re compose your shots!.

    • ben

      It seems that I should have read you before answering… Apologies.

      • Will

        Haha no problems at all :) glad to help this community better their knowledge on their cameras :)

  • Tom

    End of August is sooner than I expected. I figured Fuji would have wanted to squeeze out as many X100S sales as possible and waited till maybe 2014 to release the update. Perhaps with a tele-extender.

    But I like this rumor much better. Fuji should receive more kudos if this holds true.

  • king

    very niceeeee……… :-) just got my x100 black ed. indeed a good news if this rumor becomes reality

  • mermadon

    I like button Q!!!!
    Common fuji,

  • erionm

    Pls…various film simulations and more custom settings saving !!

  • whichwchi

    If this is true, I will love you until I die Fuji. It is incredible that a company still supports their old camera and users. I’d love to have the Q (and maybe somehow fix the almost-useless manual focussing)

  • I’m really happy with this news!

  • Tom

    Your Expert Corner guy, Rico, today commented that he is looking forward to the FW release in early September.

  • Pete

    I really hope this turns out to be true. The film simulations and a Q would be great.

  • Lepo

    New informations.. rumors?

  • Jack

    It is now august.. where is it?

  • Jack

    It is now September sorry!

    • patrick

      Keep faith… ;)

  • paul

    I’ve followed this rumour for quite a while. Doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. Fuji have launched a new range of models that span the range from the X20 through to the more professional models. The massive update would be amazing. The X100 is a fantastic camera with one or two shortfalls that really could do with an update. Losing hope, can see the benefit for current and loyal users but not for Fuji…
