Ken -- this is great. I may ultimately just send it to Fuji. I'm fairly mechanically adept, but I'm not sure I want to be messing around with something delicate about which I know nothing. I'm keeping your post on record though. Really appreciate it.
And for anyone else out there reading this thread, don't let it dissuade you from buying the camera. Everything you've read is true. It's light, portable and well-made. The shuttter is nearly silent. The viewfinder is large and bright. And the 80mm focal length is just about perfect on 6x7, in my opinion.
