  • Well... It turned out that someone near was selling the 6000 with both kit lenses for £450. So down the rabbit hole I go...

  • Current new prices here are about £408 with the smaller kit lens.
    To be clear I'm in CANADA.

  • What are Fuji X series bodies like with adapted lenses ? Thinking of picking a second hand body up but I'll be using it with adapted Nikon AI/AIS glass initially

  • Depends on what lens I'd say. The adaptors affect the handling quite much and add length and weight to the lenses. It'd be fine for smaller lenses but I wouldn't use my X-Pro2 without the L-grip when I need the 55mm f1.2
    Manual focus is quite easy with the X-Pro2 but worse than on the A7M3. It may be the resolution or magnification on it but it's way sharper and easier to focus on the Sony. X-T1 viewfinder on the other hand is horrible for focus peaking

  • Cheers for posting those up.

    Depends on what lens I'd say.

    28 and 35mm lenses. I've a few Mamiya ZE mount lenses that are smaller and lighter than Nikon F mount equivalents, but the adaptor for those is harder to come by.

    Planning on picking up a cheap X mount body to see if I get on with the ergonomics and menus etc before possibly part-ex'ing my digitals to buy into the Fuji system.

  • Have any Ricoh GR owners ever had to replace the body screws? A couple of mine have gone missing, I want to get the exact size replacements.
