Just rambling (no need for serious considerations)
This year at the River House (my home) we are having a Fuji Christmas!
Why? What? Who? I know...
I'm just excited to grab a Fuji X-E1 kit w/18-55 in boxes this Saturday, with the intent of gifting it to my wonderful girlfriend who has taken a strong interest in my cameras and more importantly taking photos.
She loves my old Leica Digilux 2 and I've had to hide that one away until we can order up some new batteries.
So far she has a small but solid collection of film cameras that yes she actually has been using regularly with the help of my silver stash.
The Classic Nikon EM (w/ 35-70 + 50Micro)
The Venerable Minolta Maxxum 7000 (w/ 50 +100-200)
She also wants a Leica of her own someday! (Is this Love?)
I own and love my Fuji X-T1, it's really everything I wanted after trying the Xpro multiple times over the past 2-3years.
I was thinking she might like the Faux Rangefinder style of the X-Pro, but after casually looking over the Fuji models, her preference was always the silver finish X-E1.
So I have just been sneaking around craigslist and Facebook the past couple weeks, when I found a nice kit for what I think is cheap (400$). Bummer it's a black body, but we can trade that in later.
So on my side, I'm excited to have a 18-55 in the house, and she can borrow the Touit, maybe we can start splitting lens costs!? I feel a 14 coming after the new year
Add to that I snagged up a SP-2 Instax Printer on cyber Monday
