Look at that crazy Fuji X100 eBay auctions (What makes a camera such successful? What should Olympus and Panasonic learn from it?)

Look at that crazy price people is going to pay for the first Fuji X100 camera listed on eBay (Click here). The seller is probably becoming rich :)
The price went up to US $2,292.31 and there are still three days left! There are now two more X100 on sale on eBay from Hong Kong (Click here) and Singapore (Click here). Those cameras will be sold for 2 or maybe 3 times the real price of the X100 which is 1199 Dollar/Euro (Check at Amazon, Adorama, B&H, J&R, eBay).

What I am questioning now is WHY a camera can become that popular. It doesn’t take interchangeable lenses, it’s not cheap, it has not a particularly amazing sensor. A wonder what Olympus and Panasonic should learn from that X100!DO you have an idea?

P.S:: You can see a dissembled X100 at Petapixel (Click here). And there is a first X100 review at Photographyblog (Click here).
