The telephoto zoom (a Kiron 80-200mm f4) has been interesting, the biggest surprise to me, especially at the long end is the shallow depth of field. I knew it would be pretty shallow but it didn't really sink in until I started using it. And though it's pretty compact the thing feels like it's made of lead, it weighs more than my camera and totally throws off the balance. I will seriously have to consider a tripod.

Other than that, not much going on. Having some fun putting various types of B&W film through the camera and getting used to what the various filters do. Still no time or motivation to scan the darn things.

From Fujifilm Germany: 05 October 2011 - Fujifilm today announced the launch of a mirror-less system camera announced. Shigetaka Komori, President and Chief Executive Officer, FUJIFILM Corporation, announced at a press conference in Tokyo: "Fujifilm will launch in spring 2012, a mirror-less system camera with interchangeable lenses. The clear objective in the development of lenses, sensor and processor technology to achieve the highest image quality. "


If this is basically an improved X100 with interchangeable lenses, I'm getting on the pre-order list as soon as there is one.

Keep it small & simple, give it a nice premium quality build, roll out a line of state of the art lenses, and this thing has the potential to revolutionize the camera industry. If Fuji does this right they can take a major chunk out of Nikon & Canon's business.

Nah. Fuji's history is littered with the carcasses of one-off products that never made it off beyond a few years of development.

Finally. Someone listened and built my perfect camera. Hybrid viewfinder, fast prime lenses, and proper dials & buttons for the things that photographers need. And it has the retro look & build of the X100. Now I just gotta find a pre-order list so I can get this camera as soon as it ships.

Certainly looks nice! I've been considering a GXR w/ M-mount myself as a smaller camera.

I've been drooling endlessly over the Canon G1X. Large sensor + zoom? Yes please mam! (I don't give a fiddly fuck over interchangeable lenses if the basic lense is good. Weight & size are far more critical for me, especially when hiking).

2.8 Zoom lense? Sensor bigger than m4/3? "Drool".

According to my google research, Fuji is making an M-mount adaptor for the X-Pro 1 a high priority, it'll be the first one they make available. I think it'll be the one to go for unless Fuji somehow managed to bung up their user interface worse than Sony's NEX system. I gotta tell you, I've never been this excited about a new camera, there's finally a digital camera available that can replace my Olympus Pen-FT and OM-1. And it has fast prime lenses!

Lens is too slow for me. Once you've been ruined from shooting 1.4 primes, you can't go back. There's no substitute for fast glass.

X-Pro 1 is going to be rather expensive, though. Plus, the GXR's M-mount is designed for use with rangefinder lenses.

Amen, brother.

The Ricoh GXR M mount works quite nicely. :)

I'm waiting to see if they'll come out with the A16 sensors ... and to let my budget accumulate :P

I think they will. Question is when.
