    I'm really and truly not trying to be like @Mike, but I've always wanted to play with a range finder type camera. Stumbled onto a great deal on a low mileage X-Pro2 and couldn't pass on it. Now I know what to do with all the glass - put a body on it!!! (A used grip and another Cam-In strap are ordered to.)

    I liked the offset viewfinder its just i kept pressing buttons i didn't want, if they had made a grip for it i may have been ok.

    EDIT......

    I sent the lens back to Amazonia. I knew it wasn't going to be the sharpest knife in the drawer, but man it wasn't sharp anywhere. If I wanted those kinds of pictures I'd smear some Vaseline on a filter for the same soft effect.

    Guess I'll look for a used Fuji prime.



    I picked up an X mount 25mm f1.8 7 Artisans lens from Amazon. For $69.99 I just couldn't resist. It's a manual lens, seems OK so far. Sure does slow me down when taking pictures & that's not a bad thing at all. :)

    Sorry for the poor quality potato- cam shot.

    Again none photographic,our solid fuel stove which we have had for 15 years cracked on the outlet flue, cant get spare parts for it so more camera money wasted on other stuff.

    Not a purchase, but a trade. I traded my Fuji XT-1 for a Fuji XE-2s. I like the rangefinder form factor better. :)

    Congrats!!! I'm still trying to get used to the X-Pro2. It is very different than the X-E2.

    I had an X-Pro1, but never could get used to the hybrid finder. Nice camera that gave me great files, but in the end I had to let it go. I'm sure the X-Pro2 is better in every way.

    The x-e2s is an excellent camera, I am sure you will get great results from it.

    Picked up a lightly used ThinkTank Retrospective 5 camera bag. It's a very nice bag & will now handle my Fuji XE-2s kit. Now my old Domke bag goes into the closet with all the other old camera bags. o_O

    I also have a used Nikon V2 on its way here. Going to sell my Nikon V1's.
