    Okay... is this some sort of religious self-denial excercise? :confused:

    Not excited about it? My RX100ii arrived today, and I didn't open it immediately either. But I waited only two hours. Now my excitement about it is gone for the most part.

    Surely it can't be that bad, can it? :smile:

    Played with an XF1 in a shop the other day. The manual lens mechanism is cool to see in action and something of a work of art but I could imagine getting annoyed with it very quickly.

    If you let the gas build up to much, you could explode..... just sayin.

    LOL! The RX100ii is too small for me to be able to operate it with one hand. So the excitement died down quickly after opening it.

    This reminds me of an alcoholic's rationalization that, "If I don't drink until after 5PM, then I don't really have a drinking problem." -- lol.

    I liked the "Tantric GAS" and "Schroedinger's GAS" tremendously by the way!

    I almost bought one (they are so damn cheap and maybe this is why... the lens action annoys)... the salesman said if I wasnt chuffed about the twisty lens for the X-10/20, I would hate this.. and he was right. I'd kinda like to own one but.,. geez..

    I have used - and continue to use - Leica Elmars and Elmar-Ms for years. These are 5cm/50mm collapsible lenses that have to be uncapped, pulled out and twisted a quarter turn to lock before you can focus and take a picture. The X10/20 and XF action comes naturally to me. The secret is to do it by feel as - or before - you raise the camera to your eye.

    I actually prefer the manual mechanism — the XF1 turns on and zooms much faster than other compacts with slowly-moving motorized lenses.
