    Welcome aboard and g'day from Down Under.

    An ex-X-100 shooter here. You're living the dream my friend and have come to the right place to recount the tales.....and share the images.

    Have my eyes peeled for the first batch off your card.

    So what's your photographic history? Are you fresh of the P&S boat, or been sailing the high seas with a dSLR for years? Or maybe you've come to us from film, we have quite the following in that regard too. :wink:
  7. Welcome, Stu, the more the merrier as someone once said :)

    Thanks both..had dslrs for few years and before that even a film camera!lol. My main interest is wildlife and reptiles.I take photos here in the uk for a lot of Reptile breeders for their sites to show off their animals and also their available stock as well as Pet Portraits dogs etc for people.Started with d70 then d200 then had a break and got a good deal on a d5000 so got that and was going to purchase a d7000 or d300s but found d5000 done me fine with good glass. Recently decided to sell it as need funds for repairs to a vehicle amongst other things but wanted a camera to keep my interest up.Looked into the fuji and really liked it and also fancied trying out a different style of shooting I.E street photography etc..the fixed lens doesnt worry me and looking forward to the challenge of mastering the quirkiness of the x100!
