Featured Comments from:
Carsten Bockermann: "I got mine about two weeks ago. Really nothing bad I can say about it. If you use a Fuji X-Pro1 or an XE-1 and need a 21mm-e lens, this is definitely a good choice."
Walter Glover: "My testing of the 14mm a fortnight ago convinced me to add one to the kit. I now have a redundant Canon 5D system for much of my commercial endeavour."
Paul Crouse: "I played with one at Yodobashi Camera in Kyoto the other day. It is very lovely. I kept walking between the Micro 4/3 displays and the Fuji X table. Hmm...which mirrorless system? The Panasonic GH3 fits my hand like a glove, but there is a something about the Fuji cameras and lenses.
"You would love Yodobashi Camera, Mike. It is like a toy store for photo geeks. You can play with everything with out asking. And then you can go try out the massage chairs when you get tired. Japan definitely leads the world in massage chair technology. Hmmm...camera or massage chair?"
Mike replies: I crave a massage chair. Really. We need to do more print sales this year....
