I can't recall ever being interested or excited about a Fuji camera before, but this one has popped onto the scene and has me very intrigued. This is what a camera should look like, has a great lens, has a shutter speed dial on top and a proper aperture ring on the lens where it should be. This might be the micro four thirds camera I've been waiting to buy but was never made. Extra huge bonus, it has a viewfinder! Olympus, Panasonic, Sony and Samsung guess what? Fuji has just leapt over you in design and at a price far below what the Leica X1 cost. Ok, so it has a fixed lens. At least it's a good one. Welcome to my long and distinguished camera lust X100.
Oh, and Tyler, the really cool folks at CSN have come through. I just received delivery notice on your lens bag you won here on the blog. Should be coming soon. I hope you send me your thoughts on the product.
I just spend the day doing a big bridal model shoot. I'm hoping to put up some video we shot of the day as well as the photos themselves and how we did them. I used the Olympus 14-35 f2.0 lens (rented from the fine folks at Lens Lenders in Canada) a lot today and it performed really well. Liked it a lot. I'll be comparing it to the Canon 24-70 f2.8 lens in an upcoming post.
