    Hi Guys :D
    My name is Bhupinder and I am from Melbourne AUSTRALIA. I started my journey with simple film cameras long time ago as a teenager and then there was a bit gap. I picked up digital P&S in 2001 and then moved to Canon Superzooms and finally to Canon 350D and then essentially shot with Canon 5D for a brief period , kept on shuffling between few camera bodies including Canon 60D and 550D . Then I picked up EPL1 with Panny 20mm 1.7 and essentially dumped my call Canon gear and decided to go mirrorless for sheer pleasure and portability of the system. Now I own OMD with Panny 20mm , Oly 45mm 1.8, Oly 12mm and Oly 4/3 14-54mmII. I was always lured by Fuji colors and built quality but never agreed that Fuji X100 was worth USD 11-1200 and lilmited edition worth USD 1699. But things changed and I managed to get a used Fuji X back limited edition under a USD1000 dollars. I love this camera. Its not that slow at all . I love the feel and look and the iamges it produces. I hope to learn and share from many Fuji users here and AMin has done a wonderful job . I am also at mu-43.com with the same name and I am sure I will come across many 'DOUBLE AGENTS ' here who spy for both sites ...hahahh
    Cheers

    Hi Bhupinder,

    I am one of the double agents from Mu43.

    Great price on the limited edition and I am sure you will love the camera, I have had my X100 for 15 months and still get excited every time I use it so I am sure you will feel the same.

    I do tend to alternate between my GX1+25 / X100 and use both for street / landscape / people shots depending on the mood - I have not yet got into carrying both at the same time as I try and decide whether I want a true tactile camera with dials & aperture ring or a small fast camera with a stunning lens but add on viewfinder.

    I look forward to seeing your images with the X100 and know they will be the same high quality as those you produce with your Mu43.

    Good shooting & enjoy!

    Bhupinder? Never heard of you??? Welcome anyway ;)

    I am also shopping for an X100, but haven't found one yet in my price range and in the "safe" area from SAB, but hope to have one soon!

    As with Iansky, I can't imagine, though, selling my PL25 and m43 body. We shall see!
