km25: Has anyone seen where to buy these things, I have not found them at B&H.

Well, the original grip has been unavailable for weeks. The X-t1 might be discontinued before we see any of these things ;)

I have an X-T1 and have been wanting the original grip and the 56mm both of which are unavailable anywhere apparently. If Fuji is going to advertise this stuff, they should be prepared to deliver it.

I bought a Hadley Pro first, and use it with my D700. Liked it so much that I bought a Hadley small for my Fuji X-E1. Expensive, but their simplicity and lack of velcro and their old-school styling are what i like, and I've had a LOT of different bags.
But they are like anything else, you buy what you like and you rationalize the cost...like we do with ALL of our gear!

On Pentax MX-1 Preview preview (211 comments in total)

I have a Fuji X-e1 with zoom in my B&H cart, then...I saw this. I've been waiting for years for a digital replacement for my film Pentax MX (black)..a great camera.
However, my excitement completely went to zero, when I saw the small sensor and lack of manual control (external).
Time to hit the buy button on the Fuji.

OK, but have they fixed the Nikon DSLR peeling rubber syndrome? ;)

But will the rubber grips peel off like every other Nikon DSLR? ;)

On Pentax announces K-01 K-mount APS-C mirrorless camera article (874 comments in total)
In reply to:

cre8unique: I watched the interview with Marc Newson and was mildly amused by his insistence on calling it the k-oh-one, while Pentax wants us to call it the k-zero-one. I always groan at product names that require their pronunciation to be explained! Mind you this isn't Pentax's worst product name... that would have to go to the *ist! (Still no idea how to say that!!)

As for the camera itself... well... it looks weird, but I've always has a bit of a soft spot for weird :-) On purely aesthetic ground I rather like it, and the yellow colour too.

I have lots of questions and concerns about this new camera, but I'm prepared to wait until the camera has been properly reviewed and I've handled it myself before I pass further judgement!

But I can't help but be curious about the Pentax-DA XS lens. I assume that this lens is designed specifically for the k-oh-one (I'm with Mr Newson on how to say it!!) and therefore won't fit on a Pentax K mount DSLR... will there be a whole series of DA XS lenses??

I miss my black Pentax MX w/ 400mm pancake from the 70's, so I guess I'm a retro guy but this thing looks awful, so....as far as I'M concerned, game over for pentax. I almost went for the K-5 to replace the MX, but then I saw the Fuji x pro1. Bye Bye Pentax
