    I have evolved from MFT to Fujifilm. Back in May some ol' MFT buds invited me for a meet-up and a stroll for some Street stuff. Here are my snaps:

    Ahoy there ....great to see you back old mate, even if it is only on day leave from the penitentiary, by that I mean Fuji-land ;)

    I trust you are enjoying the XT1? Must say, I've been tempted on more than one occasion since the release of the XT1 to give it a try, not the least of which for some of those wonderful Fujinon lenses.

    Thanks Joe. I gave my EM5's to my kids, but I still have the EM1. MFT still beats Fuji on the total system ... all the the MFT lenses are great. I sorta randomly picked up a X-Pro1 just because I thought it was the sexiest digital camera I've ever seen. After I started looking at the images I said "Whoa!" This thing is more than just a pretty face. The XT1 and EM1 are very similar handling-wise.

    That guy in the first pic, looks like he could be a famed street photographer himself!

    ...a fashion faux pas to set the town alight with gossip !

    Got all my fingers and toes crossed that the man will approve my application for 2 weeks off next February, got another snowboarding trip to Jackson Hole, Wyoming....if all goes to plan will have a day in LA. Would be great to catch up with you guys for a coffee.

    That would be an absolutely Grand plan. By then you'll have a Fuji.
