The X100 uses an 12.3 megapixel APS-C sized sensor, the same size used on most full-size digital SLR cameras. While it doesn't offer as high a resolution as the latest pro SLRs, the sensor is paired with a newly designed 23mm f/2.0 Fujinon lens. The prime lens, which has the same angle of view of classic 35mm lenses for 35mm cameras, includes an aspherical element optimized to deliver light rays perpendicular to the sensor. This optimization produces sharp images from edge to edge with no noticeable light fall-off.
The lens also incorporates a nine-bladed aperture for smooth bokeh and a high-speed leaf shutter which allows flash use up to the maximum 1/4000 shutter speed. A built-in neutral density filter can also be turned on for up to three stops exposure adjustment, allowing use of larger apertures and or slower shutter speeds than typical under bright lighting conditions.
List price around $1000, due March 2011. Man.....if I could only afford this, I'd be all over if. Gorgeous.
