I bought one of those hand held vaccum thingies to blow on the sensor (another 'fun' part of rangefinder ownership) and much to my surprise - it worked! Dust on on the sensor, for now, is gone!

Not an acquisition per se but donated to Joao for his great and free film emulation styles, that I have used devotedly since summer 2017. Over at darktable there's no vast markets for quality presets, free or paid, like for Lightroom. At the same time in 2017 I was still rocking the Fujifilm and its wonderful JPEGs -- the transition towards Leica and raw development would have been very rocky if not for the "t3mujinpack".

It wasn't the siren song of the X-E3 since I like big cameras for my big hands. It was bumping into an X-H1 used a good price. I just need to find time to get out and shoot....too busy with work and dog-sitting.
To be honest, I'm after the lens as well as the camera myself - but I also want the compact package. Not that I really need it, what with the G1X III and all, but it was the nicest small-ish combo I've held and handled for quite a while. However, I'm setting my sights for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 III - it'll most probably replace my GX9, a camera that, in spite of its numerous strong points, I can't seem to like as much as any of its predecessors ... Just my luck, I guess.

It seems like the only system that is not in your signature yet......it must be destiny.

I was totally prepared to let go of *all* my Sony/E mount stuff to make room! That is, until I found out that the Z6 isn't at all fun to use with adapted lenses (and, not to put too fine a point on it, adapted adapters). So, the A7 II stays, if only for that purpose - plus it's the smallest stabilised FF body there is, so that's just as well. The A6000, on the other hand, isn't really worth selling - it's common as dirt in the used market, and I don't even own the kit lens most people seem to want to shoot with it.

In all honesty, if things don't work out with :mu43: till the end of this year, I'll switch to Fuji for my compact system needs, and I'll throw in the A6000 in the trade-in deal (even if it's for laughs alone). But I'm pretty confident that won't happen, so my signature will probably stay as it is. Probably ...
