Thanks for all the kind welcomes

Yeah your right you often forget how much we lug around with a gripped SLR and 3 lenses or more.

The guys there at central market are great. I have recently bought a 135mm 2.8 for the nikon for $90. He also let me have a play with his own personal X100! Im in there on Friday again so well see what they have on their shelves

So how do these MF SLRs handle with a prism. Looks like it would be awkward to hold in regards to the position of a shutter button and visual reference to shutter speed and aperture.
