Fujifilm announces rangefinder style camera at Photokina 2010

Fujifilm has come up with a brand new rangefinder-style digital camera that they’ve just announced at Photokina 2010. The camera, though it appears like ‘yet another interchangeable lens camera’, is in fact a niche product with a fixed 23 mm lens and large image sensor behind it. There aren’t many details about the camera so far, but here’s what Fujifilm has revealed about the FinePix X100 so far:
