new X2 arrived
Aug 2, 2012

A box containing a black X2 found its way to my desktop yesterday morning, but I had zero time to even open it. I finally had a few minutes to open the box at 11:30 pm last night. Have had no time to take a picture with it yet, but it is a freekin' beautiful camera !

Fitted it with an A&A case, self opening lens cap, Voigtländer OVF, Street Strap, and 32G card. The battery charged up while I slept. I woke an hour late this morning (!) and had to run out the door, but I'm leaving work to head home at noon. When I get back there, I'll update the firmware and put it all together to take up to the book signing this evening.

I can see immediately that this little camera is gonna be a serious picture taking tool. It is just the right size, has just the right controls and is "handy" in that special way that my Rollei 35S was. I'm sure it isn't perfect (neither was the Rollei ... ;-)) but I'm very interested now to see what I can get out of it.
