Fujifilm FinePix X100 NYC Panorama

Last night I was lucky enough to end up on the roof of a building on 49th Street.  So from 39 stories up here is the view looking south.

**Update**

Of course there is no limited edition camera set.  Someone made a nice box and put the camera, case and flash in it themselves.  That is smart and perhaps a good business judging by the interest in Denmark and beyond - but it's not a new camera or anything from Fujifilm.  I still expect the cameras to reach USA dealers on Friday the 29th - but will confirm that as soon as I know.
**Update** I wrote this original post in April.  Things seem to have changed since then and the limited edition box may exist - though I cannot confirm it as seen on the web from Japan -  it is not for sale in the USA.

    So, is this camera ever getting released in the US? or will we continue to get shafted by Fuji?

    I think that Fujifilm wants to sell us X100's just as much as we want to buy them. If there is a delay, there is probably a good reason. Logistics issues perhaps, marketing maneuvering maybe (a small release might make a few happy but stir the anger pot for the rest, etc), or they wanted to be sure the cameras were flash updated before putting them in our hands. I can understand all these but would wish for some transparency in communication from Fuji. (unless it was some marketing move - our numbers show best results if X100 is released in countries in this sequence...) haha.
