Fujifilm FinePix X100 2nd Shipment Update

We are going to ship more cameras to the dealers this week in the USA.  They should arrive Thursday or Friday depending on the shipments.  Accessories should begin to show up as well.
I know many people are waiting and this will ease a little bit of the pressure but by no means the whole backorder so please be patient as we work to catch up!  Thanks for the support.
**UPDATE** I'm am delaying the 2nd shipment arrival to dealers by a day or two.  I think they will see the cameras Friday and Monday - not Thursday (possible for a few, but not confirmed).

    I am leaving for Europe this weekend. I waited, and waited, and waited - but had to order an Olympus XZ1 on Monday cause I couldn't wait any longer. Oh well.

    Fuji has completely botched the roll out of the x100...I gave up and have bought the x1 which though a bit more money is a better camera

    Wonder when this baby will be available in Europe (Ireland or UK)..

  4. It's remarkable to me that people think Fuji "botched" up this roll-out. Unless these people are coming from pronounced socialist economies there's no conceivable reason why Fuji would do anything other than work as hard as humanly possible to build and ship as many of these as possible. Fujifilm's raison d'être is to build great products and sell them - as quickly as to as many customers as possible. Give them a break. When your country has suffered one of the worst set of natural disasters known to modern man it's ok to miss a few "anticipated" deadlines. "Hey Neko - we need you back at the plant to make more X100 bodies and motherboard assembly units tonight. What? Your house is partially destroyed and in a radioactive fallout zone? Quit your belly-aching! We've got cameras to make!"

    I want one too - and hope it arrives within a few weeks - but I'm inclined to cut them a little slack.

    ^^ David, I think you have socialism confused with capitalism. Consumption is the cornerstone of capitalism. Sounds like the nay-sayers are from capitalist regimes with insatiable appetites to consume regardless of natural disaster or working conditions in other countries. "As long as I get what I want for cheap from Walmart, then I don't care if the little kids slave away in sweat shops."

    I digress, I don't think Fuji botched the launch at all. There were unforeseeable circumstances and I think they handled it with class.

    Hmmm this is getting a little heated. Very few people remain untouched by what has happened in Japan and the majority of us naturally feel upset by the hardship experienced by so many people who have lost family, friends and loved ones not to mention their homes and everything that they have worked for.
    In saying that someone who wishes to purchase a camera which is produced in Japan is helping even if it's just in a tiny way by contributing to the economy. We need to be tolorent and remember we all feel a certain excitment and anticipation while we wait for something we really long for. This is not a negative thing and nobody should be expected to feel bad for looking forward to something that they wish to purchase.
    Please God the poor folks in Japan will get back on their feet soon and no doubt they will be as happy as we'll be when demand for this highly hyped camera will be met.

    Did you guys not ship any to B&H this time or what? It's super painful to preorder two months ago with a company like B&H and see people ordering on May 4 on Amazon getting theirs shipped out today with no word from B&H if they are gettin any.
