Hi Steve:

Thanks. It was a major decision and I hope it works out . When Leica announced the X1, I just finished purchasing the D5K and the D-Lux 4 and was stuck, then. They are both gone and I miss the portability of the D-Lux 4, but not the noise at anything over ISO 800.

I’m not fooling myself; it is not the M9. However, I cannot get to the M9. With the money I had for the D7K, the sale of the 16-85, and not buying the Tokina 11-16 – it is the X1. That is why I went for the $124 Billingham belt case – the X1 is not cheap. Billingham makes the best cases, imho, and this one is well padded inside!

I will keep people posted in the Non-Nikon cameras forum. In other words, this is my last post on the X1, here.

Best regards,

Hektor

PS: I’m still shell-shocked at the amount of money I spent on the X-1 (camera + accessories = $2,400.) Yes, I’m getting my dose of buyer’s remorse. It is crazy and I know it. The Fuji X100 is a much better camera for less than half the price. However, remorse or not, I’m not even close to changing my mind, crazy or otherwise. After having crossed the proverbial bridge, I just realized how much I really wanted the X1, but could never overcome the sticker price until today. On the other hand, compared to a Leica digital alternative like the M8.2 or M9 with one lens, the X1 is dirt cheap. The beauty of the X1, imho, it is a fixed lens camera - I cannot go out to buy another lens, because I can't. The X1 will save me from myself.
