Q. What kind of shutter does the X100 use?
A. Shutter Type = TBD

Q. Will I be able use both the lens hood and a 49mm filter at the same time? Just to clarify, here is the wording on the filter thread, which is not clear in regards to my question:
“Yes, 49mm filters can be screwed in using the optional adapter ring. This ring is attached by removing the existing metal lens surround and then screwing the adapter ring into place. A lens hood can also be attached using the same method. Having a 49mm thread ensures that users will be able to purchase most popular third party screw-on filters.”
A. Lens hood + Filter = Yes.
Q. I understand this is not a rangefinder camera. However, when in OVF mode, is there any way to manually focus the camera where I can visually confirm focus? I assume as I manually focus the camera I will see the distance scale in the projected distance bar change? When I hit correct focus, as determined by the camera, will I then see an indicator light of some sort appear?
A. Manual Focus Confirmation/Indication = TBD
I will get clarification and post/tweet information. Busy preparing for CES 2011.
