Hmm, I actually spent 10 years of my childhood living in a house on a gold mine in Johannesburg.
(Google maps shows me it's now some kind of warehouse! -26.211703,28.065293, but it used to be a mine owned by these people http://www.villagemainreef.co.za )

A standard gold bar weighs 12.5kg and is worth around $693,000 at current prices.

I have been to the Netherlands many times, even lived there for a while. I can state with no degree of uncertainty that I saw very few people with a gold bar carried around their neck. (In fact in all my time on the mines I never saw anyone carry a gold bar around their neck. They are quite heavy you see, and rather expensive to carry about your person.)

I did see quite a few nice cameras in the Netherlands though. Possibly guus doesn't actually speak for everyone in the whole country.

Default Maybe...

this is what causes the decline of the Fuji company.
The X series are developed and produced in Japan.
There was a nuclear disaster in Japan some time ago.
Maybe the radioactivity affected their brains.

Default Difference

I notice a remarkable difference between the "old " Fujicompany and the "new" Fujicompany.
The old Fujicompany was famous for developing camera's like the S3, the S5, the F30, the S6500, the S9100, the S100fs, the S200exr, the HS10, the HS20 and perhaps the HS30. These were high quality camera's for a reasonable price.
Now we see the X serie, low quality camera's for a unreasonable price.
How could this happen all over sudden?

Except that you are just flatout wrong.

The X100 is the best digital camera ever made.
The XS1 is being reviewed as the best superzoom on the market by many sites.
The X10 is also very highly reviewed on most sites.

Of course they are not perfect, and they are not budget models. But your assertions are bizarre, and your manner is highly offensive at times.

I totally disagree with your statement about the X serie.
The X serie has an IQ that is equal to a $100 P and S camera.
Prove me wrong.

The Panasonic LX5 ($400 camera commonly regarded as one of the best P&S cameras ever made)

DXOMark scores:
Panny LX5 = 41.
X10 = 50.
X100 = 73.

Now we are getting the DXO marks. Who cares. People need to understand one simple concept. It is not the camera you use, it is the person behind the camera that really matters....
