Hmm might be grey market then heh
I've read the complaints about the AF and I dont really see the problem. Of course I had the x10 before and the AF speeds seem to be about the same so I dont have anything to base them off. It will hunt in very low-light but I haven't missed a shot because of it or anything, I dont shoot moving objects a lot though. But, when it says it is in focus it is in focus, so at least it is accurate. You might want to test one out in a store just to see.
Manual Focus is really enjoyable to me. I have it set up so when I press the af-l / ae-l button, it just auto focuses while in Manual focus mode, so I basically have the option to do both.
I'm really impressed by the EVF, I was shocked when I first looked in to it. Everything is so crisp, I cant see any pixels at all, it looks just like an OVF but with the information displayed etc.. Shows exactly what the picture is going to look like too so that is a plus
Heres a shot from this morning that I like, wish the puddle was a little bigger
