Why I Will Buy A Fuji X10

Here is why I want a Fuji X10.

I can still recall the first time I saw a Yashica Electro 35 rangefinder camera more than 30 years ago. It had a fast, beautifully coated lens and that "heavy in the hand" quality of all metal construction. It looked great. It was my affordable Leica.

The Fuji X10 brings back all those aesthetic yearnings. With its chunky dials, buttons and rings, and that classic deep black rangefinder styling, it spells a return to camera elegance. This is not a camera for those who agonize over specs. Like all modern digital cameras it will take a great photo. That's a given.

However, in much the same way that the Ford Mustang or the Apple Mac computer became design icons, so will the Fuji X10. I am not ashamed to say that this is one camera I will buy based on looks alone. This is the designer camera for the workingman.
