Lol. I do like these little cameras. And thank you for the replies. I do find some of the replies funny! FYI, I do lug around a DSLR with a battery life of touching a 1000 shots per charge. But I may well invest in one of these in the future when the DSLR becomes too cumbersome.

I'm just tight and don't see why I should have to fork out for extra batteries! Especially not the genuine ones..........

Mac McCreery: Why have virtual when we exist in reality? Probably my age, but I just see folk being further detached from their own reality.

I just worry that folk are now seeking empathy through electronics. Why go out and experience stuff when you can slip on a head set. Blade Runner anyone?

Bizarre. Crippling a premium camera with a lesser lens. Only joking!

It would seem not.

Guidenet: Yeah, dump the typical DSLR for a Nikon DF or Fuji XPro2 et al. I can wear it with my Faux Giorgio Armani Hong Kong suit and a Bolex wrist watch and really impress the ladies. Hubba hubba! What you wear is more important than the photographs you make. Give me that retro look.

How about 'I am Nikon'. Just a thought.

Chilloutbuddy: This camera is cheap.

If you want a camera with a window finder and a few lenses, then your only other option is Leica M. That's when you realize how cheap is the xpro.

And, if you want autofocus on top of that, then you realise that your only other option is to go back to shooting film, so you can use the Contax G1 or G2. And that's when you realize the xpro is a real bargain.

If you don't want a window finder, then I'm not sure why you're even reading this review... countless cheaper EVF/retro looking cameras out there.

Yep. Cheap here means great value. If only folk read posts fully.......
