The first thing I thought of was the Nikon 28ti camera from, what, twenty years ago?

Everything old is new again.

I really like the look of this one. Shame it doesn't have a viewfinder like the X100, but the sensor size and everything else looks perfect. I currently use an Olympus E-P3 with a 12mm f2 lens as my backpacking camera, and while it produces great images, I do find it a little bit too big with the lens, as I can't fit it in a pocket etc. Cameras are slowly moving to the ideal of being tiny, but having most of the features & IQ of a SLR.
