lou Capeloto: My Panasonic Gx1 took some great pictures from it sold it for so little would have kept it. I least hopefully I learned a lesson, in 2017 purchase the Fuji x100f and took around 20000 photos great sentimentality and some photos I am quite happy with. In March, I purchased the Fuji x100v but I kept the x100f. The camera has my personality since I bought it new and it went through quite a bit with me, also will be happy to use it as a backup still a great camera, I only like to buy new because IMHO the camera will have my fingerprint and a past with me. You only live once, this life is temporary, so what not enjoy and not worry about the money. I lost two parents since 2015. None of us not we will depart this world

Sorry to hear. Taking pictures to me has a spiritual component. Enjoy your picture taking

I used my x100f with evf. But I recently switched to ovf with my Fuji x100v
Absolutely prefer ovf, clearer scene, feel closer to what I am shooting
It is really amazing the ovf experience in the Fuji x100v

lou Capeloto: Prefer to buy voightlander for difference in price. Had a 7 artisans f1.2 35mm lens returned it did not like at all. All third party lenses for my Fuji xt 20 will be voightlander
I bought the 75mm f2.5 voightlander very small compact stunning images on sale now for 599 and has been discontinued, for the small difference in price a much better product which I bought at cameraquest

Thank you good info. Last lens bought from cameraquest very good to deal with

I understand. That is what is great all lenses have their own properties which appeal differently to everyone. Only gave this as an option, since the micro contrast of this voightlander and overall rendering are quite amazing. Better than my older Leica lenses which I sold after using this. You really get a lot of bang for the buck. When I used the 7artisans f1.2 35mm it had a very smudged look on my Fuji x and even my inexpensive 40 dollar minolta was much superior in my eyes. But some people swear by Sony cameras and hate Fuji for example and vice - a - versa but I always appreciate personally getting suggestions from others. Thank you very much for your thoughts

One camera one lens Fuji x100f with its fixed 23mm f2 can cover everything I need to do and often on vacation I left my other equipment at home or in the hotel
This lens does it all
