Listen Zack, strange women lying in ponds distributing cameras is no basis for a system of testing. Supreme reviewing power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

You can't expect to wield supreme reviewing power just because some watery tart threw a Fuji at you.

If I went around saying I was a reviewer just because some moistened bint lobbed a compact system camera at me, they'd put me away.

Or something.

Well, Zack started it.

I have to remind myself that while Zack is testing this camera kit.. he's not a great advocate of GAS. I came back from vacation with zero GAS and it isn't just this forum but others as well that I visit that have rekindled that flame. If I keep my eyes set on something I can not ever ever have.. like a Leica.. then maybe I will be cured. All the little things though, killer.

Zach jumped into a thread on DPReview forums about his upcoming review:
That said... initial reaction to this camera is awesome. After I said OMG 26 times I simply said "Wow." At first I loved the 18mm but I'm working with the 35mm some more and my gut reaction will be that it is the hot lens to get for the system. Jury is still out on the 60 because I haven't really run it through the paces yet. I want to use one for a few days, then another, then the last. I started with the 18 and I'm moving through them slowly.
