    I have now had a Serious Compacts dream. When I'm alseep, I prefer to dream about working out problems, or having the ability to fly, or Christie Brinkley circa 1981. The lot of you kindly find someplace else to hang out at 2am, thank you.

    Scene: There's been a rumor that the X Pro 2 has finally been leaked to a test reviewer, who is going to an abandoned old house to shoot some test shots, which will then be uploaded to SC for everyone to oggle. But many of us decide we want to see the actual camera for ourselves, and we descend upon said house. Everyone is creaking around quietly on old wooden floors in near-dark, trying to hide in a back room ala a surprise party, so that when the test reviewer comes in we are somehow not going to be noticed. Also my 4 yr old daughter is with me, but is being remarkably quiet.

    A guy walks over amid the hushed chaos and says "hey are you Kyle? I'm Luke." He's much younger than the actual Luke, and in fact is a mashup of Actual Luke and Jack Black from the movie High Fidelity. Also Ray Sachs is there, but is too busy taking stunning candids with the Nikon A to talk.

    Then everyone tenses up, and the Reviewer walks in the front door of the house. And it's John Griggs! When all realize we know each other, everyone relaxes and checks out the X Pro 2. It had a full frame sensor. Even my daughter was impressed with the file outputs, stunning low light performance, and rich dynamic range.

    ya know, when "High Fidelity" was playing in the theaters, a few people compared me to John Cusack (young-ish, handsome, dark-haired, impossibly cool record store owner with encyclopedic knowledge of recorded music). But as the years go by and I add a few pounds every year, I can actually see how I am morphing into Jack Black. :help:

    Did the dream last long enough for you to find out if Fuji has bent the law of physics to get their current lens line-up to cover a FF sensor?

    Hey Griggs? Let's see those sample photos you took!

    It ended right there. Just got to see the camera, and then everyone split up and left. Several times I looked down and thought "I brought my DAUGHTER to this? What was I thinking?"

    You should send the report into Fujirumors.

    Full frame sensor? So none of the current X lenses work for it? Good grief, we'll have to buy new lenses again!! Not good for the budget for sure!

    And yes, I agree with Paul -- seek help immediately!! :wink:

    Did you say something about Christie Brinkley? :love:

    Maybe Kyle is a prophet. Soothsayer. Would this be a FT3 or 4?

    Not really a nightmare, maybe more of just a mare.

    Let's keep posting the phrase "dream about Fuji X-Pro 2 prototype" many times so it'll come up in everybody's Internet searches. :biggrin:
