Hi
I had a shock yesterday , my venerable Fujifilm X-Pro 1 stopped functioning .
I assumed it was the end .
I have others , including the X-Pro2 but post retirement could not justify a used replacement .
I then found that the lens is faulty , which was such a relief .
I wonder if others find an attachment to a certain camera?In 2016 the brand new X-Pro 1 @ around £300 helped me through a rare visit to my wife's family in Malaysia , it seemed to create superb street images with little help from me .
It has a delicacy which later Fuji cameras seem to have lost .
Just relieved that it's OK to shoot another day .

For sure. I still have my very 1st camera a Kodak 110 instamatic and wish 110 film was more available so I could shoot with it again. I also have my 1st SLR a Canon AE-1. I take that camera everywhere even if I don’t intend to use it, just in case. I have had it rebuilt once and a CLA on it after the rebuild. Spent more money on it then it is worth but it’s my 1st so it gets the attention it needs.

Thanks , it seems a touch irrational , but to repair a treasured SLR is much more than monetary value .

I had a similar shock back in 2006 when I discovered that my first DSLR, a Fujifilm S3 Pro, was so ignorantly designed that it wouldn't even meter unless the lens electrically communicated with it. The meter was useless with a bellows, reversed lens, manual extension tubes or non-AF Nikkors. It wasn't until 2014 that I bought a DSLR (Nikon Df) that could meter even with no lens attached. About 6 years ago I did buy an AF-S 85 f/3.5 G ED DX Micro-Nikkor to utilize the S3 Pro, as I don't dislike anyone enough to give the camera to.

To my belief, it was a less than 3 year old 16-50 zoom lens which inflicted the panic At £100 to repair it , I decided upon a new 35mm f2 as I have the 18-55 .
