    The only "flaw" I have found so far, that I've read before and did know about, is that the AF is a tad slow, it's definitely not a machine for action photography. I've shot two rolls so far, Fuji Superia 200, and will probably shoot a third and then send them in for dev by the end of the week. Been doing a lot of test shooting, quick candid street shots, different exposure conditions (sky, trees with sky behind etc.), and some shots of the same house/wall with all different apertures, and so on...

    Will be interesting to see how the negs turns out.

    I'm quickly developing a strong attachment to this camera, there's a certain kind of "feel" using it, it's an odd thing to explain and I truly hope the negs will be good as so far, "this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship"...

    I know that feeling.

    Odd isn't it?

    For now it has to rest, I have to get my two test rolls (color, not doing that at home, yet..) developed first to make sure everything is ok before I start shooting seriously with it.

    I just ordered the 28mm, 200 EUR (~$255), pure bargain! Not really in "need" of it, but hey, that price was screaming: "BUY ME NOW!" in my direction..

    Will hopefully arrive within the next days!

    If you can get on with the minute viewfinder you'll have a wonderful camera at your disposal.
    A/F was a bit 'clunky' on my G1 though I gather that is normal procedure.
