    Congrats Russ. It's a lovely camera. I had a play with one the other day as my "local" dealer has a few in stock. If I liked the 35mm focal length I'd be all over one in a second.

    It reminds me of my old Contax G2, the way the aperture ring is on the lens and both shutter speed and exposure compensation are on the top plate. This is a good thing.

    But yes, the menu system leaves a lot to be desired. I also find the Menu/OK button too small and keep selecting the flash control or shooting mode control by mistake.

    My appeal to Fuji would be to allow the Fn button to be set as a "Quick Menu" button a la LX3, giving instant access to ISO, WB, AF mode, metering mode etc etc.

    But, like my old Contax (which I traded in against a D300) it's a camera that just invites you to take photos. Love it.

    Thanks, Russ. That quick menu idea is a good one. Let's hope for some good fixes in the upcoming firmware update. Meanwhile, I am so glad that you are pleased with your choice.:biggrin:

    :love: What a beauty! I hope you put these up on Flickr, so that I can wax poetic. I feel as though I'm right next to her.
