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 [shoplink 20939 ebay]eBay (Click here)[/shoplink]. 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 [shoplink 20999 ebay]Hong Kong (Click here)[/shoplink] and [shoplink 21000 ebay]Singapore (Click here)[/shoplink]. Those cameras will be sold for 2 or maybe 3 times the real price of the X100 which is 1199 Dollar/Euro (Check at [shopcountry 19929]).

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).
