    Absolutely. It's much more important to look good than to be good.

    I like my Fuji X-T2 just fine, but there really are photos Fuji can't take. Here's an example:

    Derrel's comment about curb(counter?)appeal can't be denied. The allure of Fuji's rangefinder and prism bump-styled cameras is a fact. The fit and finish of their Japanese-made models really does evoke the all metal, knurled knobs and deeply engraved numbers of Nikon F2 era. Same goes for the Fujinon lenses. But it's skin deep and that's all to the good. It's just a different aesthetic that appeals to some but not all camera buyers. Frankly, it's been a long while since I've enjoyed a camera as much as my year-old X100T.

    I've got to admit, I had some movement in my khakis when I seen the XP2, in the display case, in used, minty condition. I bought it like it was a coach purse. Man put the 16mm with the square hood on it and let's just say, I'd sleep with it. Oooops, I have....

    I love full figured woman but I don't like carrying them around. Oh... I lied, I've been lugging around "Godzilla" Fujifilm GX680III, she puts out when I ask her for it, with a bark.

    I can see that. I just bought a Minolta 3Xi with a AF 28mm f2.8, and a 50mm f/1.7 dirt cheap and minty. It is pretty and ergonomically pleasing. Its too auto but im going to push it. Threw a battery in it, got film loaded, ready to explore. I'll shoot a few rolls and give it away if it is sound. I am not into AF film cameras but I had enough change in my truck cup holders to buy it. It's controls are strange to me but doable. I recently bought a Pentax P30T but I am kinda fond of it. I bought it with the intention to give it to someone, and still may. I love it.

    When you buy a Fuji camera, you start to invest in fancy straps and bags because...it's a fashion statement and you want everyone to know how cool you are when no one actually gives a crap.

    No offense to anyone. I like Fuji, I think they make great cameras and lenses. But I honestly don't agree with buying cameras just because they look good. A good looking camera doesn't make you a better photographer..atleast, I think anyways.

    I had no idea I was suddenly fashionable and cool. Can't wait to tell my family! I think you might be taking Gary's joking about buying it just based on looks a bit too seriously.

    Speaking of camera straps...I follow Dora Goodman, who makes hand-crafted straps, among other things. Her latest strap design looks very interesting to me.

    Here is the new strap, modeled by the lovely Ms. Goodman herself, in a very short Instagram video capture Instagram post by Dora Goodman Cameras • Jul 20, 2017 at 3:15pm UTC
