Charlie3: Greetings Nico, great to see DPreview acknowledging your wonderful work and magnificent travels...pity about some of the jealous,arrogant and know-it-all members!! :-)
Just wanted to wish you and Julia a very Happy Crimbo and great travelling in 2015. My Nikon DSLRs are resting indoors for studio work nowadays. Fuji X-T1 has been the replacement and it is a joy to carry much less weight :-)
As for those books you will be writing, please hurry up as I had my 75th birthday last week !! :-)
Take great care
Charlie

Glad you made it through the New Year Nico!
Mr Fisher reminds me of Jeff Cable (Leighton Buzzard, UK) who came up with several harsh criticisms a few years ago on 1x. I emailed him privately and he promised me examples of his work...nothing seen so far but it did stop him giving pompous, bad mannered, crit :-)

On Fujifilm X-T1 Review preview (620 comments in total)

The April 2014 review deserves considerable change following the Firmware v3.0 update. The X-T1 is now a very serious camera...and the joy is that I haven't had to buy a new camera !!!

Charlie3: Perhaps you meant to say 'message' rather than 'massage' in the rules blurb :-)

Ha ha! That's what they always say :-) I was taking an interest as I may have an entry...hope it goes well for you.

The designs that you showed earlier were an embarrassing example of a 65 year old mishapen lady in a miniskirt! For goodness sake, adding some walnut veneer to the dashboard does not create a better driver. Hassy have seen the future and know that their v. expensive offerings are becoming redundant so are flailing around for attention. The Sony brand has very good standing; attaching themselves to the Hassy label with these sort of ideas is going to lower its value considerably :(
The NEX bodies are great...with more Zeiss lenses the total package may become orgasmic !!
