sarkozy: Understand the excitement is not quiteThere are worldwide, such B. photos on Flickr thousands of pretty or very good photos and only about 50 photos with ORBS?
I hold my X10 ;)
??? This makes no sense!
ctpjudd: I am an enthusistic amateur and used to have Nikon SLR's and old Kodak retinas.I hate to admit it but they're gone and I love taking my Casio S600 on holiday.After all, the camera has to be with you at all times, portable and not stolen !
I intend to get an X100 or X Pro -1 and I can't understand for the life of me why people want small , lighter cameras. I want my camera to feel solid, work with precision and be a delight to use. And with manual settings. In 1975 I had a ST601 Fuji with the first LEDS.
I guess I have just described a Leica M9 and all I can say is ....thank you Fuji for giving me a wonderful choice of 3 for my best camera.
You have contradicted yourself. First you say "the camera has to be with you at all times, portable and not stolen". Then you say "I can't understand... why people want small, lighter cameras". So do you like small cameras or not?!
They should have fitted a pentaprism and mirror box - it probably would have made it smaller! I really can't see the point of this beast.
