    I joined this forum in anticipation of becoming a Fuji owner! and it's very exciting to be one especially NOW!
    Fuji is breaking grounds and shaking the big two in unprecedented way and I think it's about time :)
    Ditched my Canon 5D MARKII yesterday for a fair price and placed an order for an X-E1 along with the 14mm 2,8f and it should arrive tomorrow and my heart is fluttering as never before, I have a HOT date with a beautiful new LOVE!
    Nice meeting everyone here, looking forward to read and share our thrilling experiences :)

    George,

    I'm a UD grad actually so I'm somewhat familiar with the Kettering area.

    I can't wait to see what you can do with the XE-1 and 14mm. Your photographs are nothing short of breathtaking!

    Hi George! I'm in the neighboring state to the east, PA. Although I'm in eastern PA so I'm not exactly a neighbor, lol.

    Slowly sidling into the Fuji system after obtaining an X100 and loving it. I just picked up an X-E1 and the 18-55mm and I'm selling one of my Panasonic bodies and my 12-35mm. I can't believe I'm getting an APS-C camera but they are quite small. I don't care about sensor size, but I love the sharpness for my large prints. I exhibit my urbex work at up to 24x36" and the sharpness of the X-trans can only be an enhancement.

    I came from Nikon DSLR and before that Ricoh film SLR gear. I'm not a young photographer, lol.

    Welcome!

    Hi, I'm from Ohio also. I just bought me an x100s and I too am amazed by the quality of the images... Says a lot since most of my Nikon gear are prime lenses and a d800. I am now lusting for an x pro1.... Anyone wanna get rid of theirs? Lol
