I guess I was but I was looking at the web page the OP linked to and it said nothing about "Tourist".
Buying a Fuji from a dealer should mean you'll get a little more hand-holding and help for things that might not be quite right, where as you're more likely to be on your own going the mail-order "never heard of the company" route. It's a trade-off, like most things in life.
I certainly agree. If there are any problems at all, buying from a reputable dealer will pretty much assure they are corrected properly and your warranty will be honored. The unknown mail-order dealer is a real gamble for after-sale service if you need it.
The cost penalty for buying from a dealer isn't that much and you could look at it as an insurance policy.
