Hello Matus,

that is the usual internet nonsense told by people who have never used a FX by themselves.
I've been in the factory two times and I've seen the production there in Brunswick.
The current models are generally as solid as the older ones.

And listen to Dennis, he is spot on with his comments above.

thanks
Go to Foto Haas in Hanover. AFAIK they still have a new FX (not the FX-N) for about 3500.

Best regards,
