  1. He said it was in "Mint+" condition......yeah right, but the price was attractive and I've been lurking for one for a while so........

    Oh, he was not kidding! This is absolutely Like New! What a partner this is going to be for my X-E3! And yes, this will replace my X-T10 (sad to see it go).

    I use mine for MF/ legacy lenses in preference to the X-T3, it’s fantastic for that.

    Don’t tell anyone I’ve got an X-T3 will you, it’s supposed to be a secret

    Is it any wonder I've got
    Too much time on my hands,
    it's ticking away with my sanity
    I've got too much time on my hands,
    it's hard to believe such a calamity
    I've got too much time on my hands and it's ticking away from me

    Back on topic. Congrats on the X-T1. It is an excellent camera. If you ever want to add DIY weather seals to your non sealed lenses. You can put o rings on the lens barrel at the mounting end. Then roll it against the body where the lens mounts to the body.

  10. Yup......I've done that with my Oly E-M5 Mk2 and non WR lenses.

    I was lusting after an X-T3 for a bit, but then I decided I'd wait for an X-Pro3

    Nice find.

    Apologies - you obviously haven't.
     
  13. Liking this X-T1 more and more as I explore it's UI. It is quite different from my X-E3; more "old school" and less gimmickry, but with all the right stuff. The VF is just awesome in comparison and I like it's brightness in darker environments, although it is a tad dark in bright sunlight compared to the X-E3. At least it can be tweaked brighter albeit by only 2 clicks. I really do prefer RF style bodies, but there is definitely something special about the way the X-T1 feels and handles. Just about perfect IMHO. :2thumbs:
     
  14. Accepted. Actually I do, but I try to stay on-topic when I comment. :cool:

    We must drive you nuts since we veer off topic quite regularly.

  16. Thanx!
    I feel my X-E3 and X-T1 have all that I will ever need. I've somewhat learned that the newest isn't always the best for my needs, and can pass on having to buy it. Going through a few Olympus Mu-43 cameras taught me that.
    Not sure what the rumored X-T3 or X-Pro3 will bring to the table; probably some nice upgrades that hopefully will satisfy your needs.

    Congrats on the X-T1. How do you find switching between the X-E3 and X-T1?

    I have the X-E2 as my backup and have occasionally carried both with different lenses to cover events but I found the switch between body styles quite jarring (maybe I should just practise with them more).
