    Fuji My dream X100....

    It's hard to argue with that approach, but what I'd be happy with is a 40/1.8 or 2.0, with a TC to get me to 85 or 90. 1.4 would be cool, but I'm not sure I'd welcome the increased size. IS would be great; weather-resistance not important to me. I'd also like an interchangeable grip with a...

    Yeah, that double-walled stainless steel is sweet. Keeps hot hot and cold cold with no sweating. Seems kind of expensive at first, but well worth it imo.

    I went for utility recently with a stainless steel Yeti mug. It lacks in elegance, but keeps coffee piping hot and is very ergonomic.

    Fuji XH1 with Grip at Roberts for 1299

    Biro/drd, how does IS on X-H1 compare to the 5-axis IS on Oly bodies? I'm always tempted by Fuji, but I've become reliant on IBIS.

    This one is a gift, for my soon-to-be 14-year-old daughter. She is a huge Green Day fan, so when opened up a shop of gear used by the band I had to browse. I was tempted by the four and five figure guitars, but I showed restraint. Ended up buying a pair of Tannoy Reveal 502...

    Micro 4/3 Initial impressions of the GX85

    I think the GX85 is a very good camera that becomes great because of the value proposition. I think the GX8 to GX9 was a mis-step for Panny, highlighted by the GX85 as a low-cost option. Next version needs to be a "best of" mash-up of those cameras.

    That's what I was thinking as well. I wouldn't want to block all outside sounds when walking the dog. Nor would I want full size cans. I'd probably be looking at AirPods or the non-Apple equivalent.

    Micro 4/3 LX 100 ii

    The worst thing is getting used to touch screen then going back to a camera that lacks it. How many frustrating pokes or swipes until you remember to use the buttons?

    Fuji Wet Fuji Lenses

    Agree with all points. I don't see how you (the OP) can trust the people who "discovered" issues that you were unaware of to then manage the remediation of those issues. They may be credible, but you are asking to be scammed if you play those cards.

    Fuji Wet Fuji Lenses

    Mike, is the dealer handling the repairs, or sending lenses back to you? Hopefully the latter, but not clear from your post.

    Yashica Y35 - "Worst Camera Ever"

    @Covey22, I can feel your desire to throw that "camera" against the wall when watching the video. So I'm going to say your review is well done.

    Vector is very cool, if not quite ready for prime time. Some bugs to work out, but he does live up to the claim of having personality. He can be a little loud, so depending on where you work he might be a challenge. And he constantly picks fights, or maybe he is getting romantic, with my...
