I think you stayed strong and was thereby an inspiration to the rest of us?

If you didn't buy, you wouldn't have asked us if we thought you bought.

I would normally have voted yes, but I voted no because the only thing I can be certain about is that you can be contrary - but that can work both ways. What is certain is that whatever you did you'll have some hand wringing to go through and this will provide much entertainment for us all on quiet nights You've been too settled for too long

I answered yes thinking the question was whether I bought you an X100 today.

Please do whatever it takes to change my 'yes' to a 'no', I don't want to void the poll.

You bought Joe an X100 today?

You can send it to me, I'm pretty sure he's already got one!

Of course you did. I'm so confident in this that I will catch and eat a small dog from the neighborhood if I'm wrong.

Yeah Joe - I think you did. But then maybe you know that we would think you did, so you didn't. I'm still voting yes.

I voted no. You're a recovering gear head, but have concentrated on lenses these past years. You will give in, but haven't just yet.

Well, I voted YES only because "Did Joe buy Three X-100's today" was not an option.

I read over on Flickr that Tom A was even tempted to buy one, so yes you bought one. The big question is how long before you sell it!

I voted 'Yes', because you would be a fool not to buy one if there was one immediately available.


(yes. it's that good).

Be honest Joe, admit that you can't remember...

Gettin' old is hell, ain't it?

After a build up like this, if Joe has pulled the pin on the X100, I think we're all going to be afflicted with quite severe buyer's remorse!

... but I voted no!
