A Fuji X300?

Rumors have just started circulating that the success of the X100 is not going unnoticed at Fuji. It appears that they may be working on two more cameras in the "X" series, including a simplified model that would slot in below the X100. And the real juicy bit, an "X300" model that would be the X100 body, but with interchangeable lenses.

Considering the praise that the X100 has been getting, this should be a guaranteed super-happy moment, but it's not. First off, it's yet another system being pushed by only ONE small manufacturer, which means an absolute trickle of lenses, which are the real heart of any system. Second, I've never been a fan of Fuji's lenses, and the one on the X100 is no different, with it being noticeably soft at F2. For only $1,200, perhaps I'm being too demanding.

I remain very curious. Fuji has done something that has very much captured my attention, and if they can hit the ground next year with 3-5 high-quality lenses, I'll completely drop 4/3's cameras for them.
