Are you drinking beer at the Bavaria brewery?Herman,
I'm sitting in deepest Bavaria, hanging on a really slow USB stick - and I'm happy.....
No burning feet, no plastic bags full of catalogues of cameras which I never would buy.......except the X1 + 99..... wait....
should I buy two of them? one preset Fuji Acros and the second with Velvia?...
BTW: there is no information about the shutter. Is it a leaf type or focal plane?
What about traveling? One of the reasons I got into :43: is next time I travel far I could bring a Pen instead of Canon 40d and get something like 9-18, that's not available for X100.The more I think about it, the more convinced I am that for me the m4/3 format will be limited to my experimental photography in using odd lenses.
I don't travel all that much, and when I do I still take my film camera along (either my 35mm or my Mamiya C330/RB67), so size isn't much of an issue for me. The appeal of the size reduction was never a main consideration for me getting into this format - the adaptability of the system was, along with the tilt LCD. When I do need a compact, I'm sure I'll manage nicely with the X100. To me I either travel light, meaning no extra lenses (advantage X100), or I plan to take along my heavier gear for the higher quality shots. I was hoping the GH1 could take up the role for the 'heavier' gear, but while I'm very happy with it I get the feeling I've outgrown its capability.What about traveling?

Not 200% sure, but probably I go for the new K-r.I expected at leat one weathersealed mft camera.
Okay, I too expected a Sony 3D camera.
Joep, you must be very happy, the Pentax news was wonderful.
Have you ordered the new Pentax or are you looking for the K-x?
