x100 when it was first released


added a lens hood shortly thereafter


treated me well until I picked up an X-Pro 1






which I actually didn't like and sold pretty quickly.


Have my pre-order in for the x100s. Can't wait for it.

Thanks, Joe. I didn't like that blank spot on the front of the camera, so I started thinking about something akin to the Leica 'dot'. But I wanted something that meant something to me personally, as I intended this 'tagging' of my camera to help me stop buying into the next great piece of gear. (I thought that the fact that it might be difficult to sell the camera once I had it engraved.) Coincidentally at the time I got the camera, I came across some writing about the Japanese philosophy commonly called wabi-sabi. Its sort of the appreciation of things humble, of the beauty in simple things, rustic things.

The engraving is the Kanji symbols for wabi and sabi. I had it done by a company here in Oakland that does laser engraving.

Hmmm, hit a raw nerve there Joe. Busy using the X-E1 to take pictures of all else, my other cameras included, that I have forgotten to take a proper one of the camera itself. Poor thing.

How do you like using the camera with Voigtlander 28mm lens? Focusing? Image quality? Thanks.

Wabi/Sabi is Japanese aesthetics, appreciation of imperfection, simplicity, etc. This is the driving force in the beauty of crackled glazing in pottery, or the feathered brush strokes in calligraphy, among other things.

The engraving is made up of the two Kanji symbols, wabi and sabi. The two together, wabi-sabi, is a term commonly used in Japan to represent a philosophy that involves appreciation for the beauty in simply, humble, or imperfect things.

Wow, that's quite a set-up back alley. And I notice we haven't seen you looking to change to a different camera lately. Happy?

very!!
having made the decsion up front to use only the fuji af lenses i have not been tempted to look around at other gear.
my biggest problem is i always want to take it all with me and it's too much for me...
i look forward to getting the 27 pancake and mounting it on the x-e1...and carrying just that!

The Fuji X series are so pretty! Incredible.
I definitely see myself picking up the next gen of them. The x100s is great, but outta my budget. If the price of those decreases as fast as the x100 I'll get one of those in a year or so. Also: I have high hopes for the X-Pro replacement. I don't think I'll be rocking a DSLR for more than 2 years (if that).
