Hi Mike - I was wondering what you were shooting these days. One of the main reasons for me wanting to try out the Xp1 is the fact that I can use a few of my M mount lenses. I will FOR SURE want that 35mm fuji lens, though. And the 14 looks like something I would want as well. I don't plan do ditch all my Canon digital stuff just yet, but find myself just not really enjoying lugging around a 5D with L glass to the few events where I want to shoot digital. I am HUGELY enjoying my Bessa R4A and CV lenses - and would like to give my wides a try on the Xpro1. I tried to like the NEX setup, I really did, and it wasn't the output that made me sell, but rather the lack of OFV. The XE1 doesn't have one, so that is a no go. Do you have any M bodies to compare to? I have been looking at M8's for quite a while now, but just am not sure about all that filter nonsense. Also, the files don't look that impressive when compared to some of the newer options that I can shoot with. I HAVE to be able to use it like all my other cameras - bringing the camera to my eye and framing a shot in the viewfinder is just so ingrained in me that I don't think I can break myself of it.
Yeah, I have been avoiding the LR upgrade (from 3 to 4) but $79 isn't gonna affect anything.
Oh, one more thing. Did you end up getting another Mamiya 7? You interested in your 65mm lens back? I have it listed on RFF right now. With a B+W orange filter. Doesn't get used by me at all. I have used it ONCE. I can't seem to remove the 43mm from the body for any good reasons.
