I've never used a Leica, and had never shot with a rangefinder camera till recently when I bought a Yashica GTN film camera. Having never used a manual focus camera before, I really hadn't expected the process of focusing to be as compelling an experience as it turned out to be. I suddenly felt more connected to what I was framing in the viewfinder. The process of hunting around for a vertical surface, trying to get the images to line up, it was all very exciting and more than that, I felt more responsible for the quality of the output. I kept wondering whether the one thing that is wrong with my X100, couldn't be turned to it's greatest advantage. Poor AF. If Fujifilm could just do away with the darn thing and put in a nice rangefinder OVF instead. I mean they already have a rangefinder in the GF670! Fujifilm GF670 Professional Film Camera I put together a list of things that would make the X100 more compelling for me, lets call it the X100"Street" or X100-S 1. A true rangefinder with a parallax OVF, as bright as the X100. 2. Fixed, manual focus only, 35mm lens, with a notch where your finger fits in (basically like a Leica lens). 3. All black body with no markings on the face. 4. Get rid on everything that is not essential, no movie mode, digital filters, etc. 5. Price it just under 2000$ (I'm guessing the rangefinder VF will be a fair penny) 6. The APSC sensor on the X100 remains. 7. Bundle an editing software that replicates all Fuji film filters, corrections, etc (maybe a tweaked version of CameraBag2 customized for Fuji) 8. Detachable tiltable LCD panel for waist level shooting, that I could leave at home or in the camera bag, so that I don't have the option of chimping every time I take a picture (could be sold as a separate accessory). Of course it might be ungainly focusing the camera while using this (TLR cameras were used this way but the focus dials were on the side). Does any of this make sense to you guys? What else would you add to the list?
