    Well done Rob, they are beautiful cameras. Use it for a year and you'll look like Arnie or Sly. Have you got a big tripod ready?

    Excellent choice Rob. I inherited a GX680 II as my first ever camera. I've since used a number of different cameras, but the Fuji is the one I grab first. There are a couple of guys on here - Thomas Sauerwein comes to mind first - that do really great work with the GX680. I'm sure you will love it. I just picked up the 80mm lens for about $250 on Ebay. At those prices, there is no better value in photography today IMO. Take care.

    Those lenses are achingly sharp. Now you'll need to budget for an APO enlarger lens to wring it all out! Have fun, that's a great, versatile rig.

    It will only get better (or at least sharper).
