Manual Focus shooters...check this out.

Split image focusing gets a 21st century treatment.
Fuji wows me again.
I mean...it's kind of a forehead slapping moment, really. Just didn't occur to me.

That's really sweet. I sold my DSLR gear, kept my old film stuff.

And I do love my Fuji X10, but that is going to make it hard not to upgrade. Fuji is really getting the 'not a pro, but knows what they are doing' market figured out.

If I fall into a pile of money, the X Pro 1 or its replacement will be mine. Oh yes, it will be mine.

Love my x100. I was at the point of deciding either Photo or Moto... that little x100 says BOTH in ways nothing else does.

Anyone who lives in the dslr age has only used the ground glass...to a lousy standard of ability. Unless, of course, you go out of your way to install a screen. Stopped down, it's fine. But at f/1.4...it's literally impossible to judge with any degree of precision. I like the fact that there's no light loss on this variety.

There are no large format digital cameras. And it's not likely I'll own a DSLR anytime soon. I do have a 4MP point and shoot for 'net use.

Ah, certainly...large format is definitely its own ball of wax. But dslr shooters aren't quite so lucky.

Digital back or straight up film?

Good old B&W courtesy of Harman Technology LTD. And a few others when I have issues with supply. But I don't shoot much ($$$$) LF,mostly 35MM.
