    No Oly the X100t won.

    Re Fuji exploiting the market of course. Yesterday the XT2 was announced. Am I trading up? No.

    More Mp , so what, the XT 1 produces files easily printable to A2 from a JPEG. Dual card slots, one's enough for me. The fully tilt able screen is nice. The video update is of no interest whatsoever, if I needed video I'd by a dedicated camera. No sorry Fuji, try harder, like a fully zooming optical finder. :)

    Oh and buttons with positive actions.

    Thank you, Brian for the news of the XT2. Not that I want one, but it's appearance will undoubtedly see the 2nd hand price of the XT1 coming down, and when it's down far enough I shall add it to my collection. Meanwhile the XPro1 will continue to give me great photographic satisfaction.

    Mike at the moment Wex are offering £380 +£100 bonus for the XT1 against the newcomer. So I would think second hand maybe £700 ish.

    Yep, I saw, Brian, and that would make a nice hat trick of WR lenses for someone :)
    Personally, if my boyz from Pentax/Ricoh came up with a nice small 23/2 WR and
    55/2 WR, I be very much intrigued :)

    Cheers and have a great weekend :D

    But, Oly, is that the 23/2 WR or the 23/1.4???? :eek:;) and, as for the "carrying a bag of interchangeable lenses and camera(s)" …. reminds me
    of when I started I had a K1000 w/a 50/2 (July 1985) … move ahead 7 years and I've got 3 bodies (MX x2, ME Super x1) with winders, a couple of Viv 285's,
    and primes lenses (19/4, 24/2.8, 35/2.8, 50/2, 85/1.8, 135/2.5, 200/2.5, 300/4 and a 2X converter) with back up batteries (AA's and LR44's), numerous
    rolls of film (8-10) and all in one bag, a LowePro Magnum and/or a Domke F2 :eek: Man, my back just gets sore thinking about that ;) As for the X-10,20,30,
    they've got the smaller sensor -- which is something for some people -- and, then, if you want to go tiny (relatively speaking) with Fuji and still have a APS
    size sensor, there's the X-70, albeit sans (built-in) viewfinder -- I've got the Ricoh GR -- And, Oly, if you want to go with the smallest interchangeable camera
    there is the Panasonic G5M, I think, and there 12-32/ or the Olympus 12/2 lens :)

    Cheers and have a great weekend :D
