    Just picked up a used X100 for $1060 AUD. Having sold the E-P1 and 3 lenses I'm still in front. Wonder if my true love will see it that way?

    Please may I enter this club?

    Its more want than need Herman - I now have 6 digital cameras (Pany GH1, Samsung EX1, Fuji HS10, Fuji Z1 and an infra red Canon G5). The deal was too good to miss but I'm a bit unpopular with the wife. :frown:

    Thanks Armando. Might have to sell the GH1 and 3 more lenses.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    There are two separate clubs forming, the X100 jpeg club and the X100 raw club. You MUST decide which to join!

    OK, kidding - its just that jpegs are actually a good option with this camera, even for some died in the wool raw shooters! CONGRATULATIONS! For all of its little quirks, this camera is just a stone blast to shoot with. Have fun!

    Bill, congrats on your new camera. Your already a member of the club. One thinks the X100 before they actually get it.

    As for the understanding from your true love, I am always in a very similar place.... no help from me....

    Bill, :yahoo: I'm so surprised and very happy for your new addition! See what you think of her, not your wife - the camera, and if you do fall for the X100 I bet you'll find some counter weights to jettison. Again - not your beloved wife, but another camera.:wink:

    Hey, Bill. Congratulations on your new x100. You are most certainly welcome in "JPEGland" and "RAWland" simultaneously. Personally I find myself crossing back and forth across town lines all the time.
    I think you will really find the X100 quite the imaging tool. Good luck.

    The photo is back. 'Must have been a Flicker "thing". Nice image and well processed by the way.

    Thanks David. It was a very poorly exposed picture but I was determined to do something with it...ultimately I think it's a bit intense, but kind of liked it with the Australian flag in color. Did it w/o selective color to - which I put on Flickr to compare.

    Well it arrived on Wednesday but I was in hospital (see here). By Thursday I weakened and asked my lovely wife to visit me and since she was coming in to bring the camera. :smile: It came with a charged battery and 4GB card so was able to have a play - very impressed - love the VF and the solid feel. Now at home I'm still familiarising myself but hope to get out and about a bit more this week coming. There's gotta be a better option than a friction fit lens cap or an expensive hood.
