Well, I couldn’t pass up the X-H1 at $999. Wasn’t interested at $2000, but now? Ok. I think it’ll be a nice dedicated body for the 56mm 1.2.

Iíve had people ask me if I can still get film for a digital m and the x100 series! But letís face it, the Rolleiflex is certainly one of the sexier cameras.
