What a lovely thing that is. May you work together in joy!
They finally perfected the x-100 series. My dream camera (and I think it looks better than the current Leicas). I wish the lens was equivalent to a 23 instead of 35 but that’s what the wide angle adapter is for. Which I’m selling my old X-100s to buy.

Out of curiosity - how does it work out with the viewfinder and the different add-on lenses? I looked at some write-ups on the camera, but didn't manage to spot info on that detail.

I’m.... not sure. I’ve not had any of the ad on lenses yet. The viewfinder is hybrid... you can switch from a traditional just look-through glass to that with some digital overlays (like Terminator style) to a full video through the lens. I typically do through the lens as it hints at exposure.

Ah, so perhaps (?) the optical viewfinder is fixed magnification and framing and composing with the additional lenses would just be video. That would make sense. I've had a couple of rangefinder-type optical viewfinders that zoomed with focal length changes, but in this case that really isn't an absolute necessity.

You can set it to know it has a lens adapter so perhaps the framing lines adjust.

My 1977 Nikon F2S has come out to play this week. I bought it used back when it was still a youngster and it looked just as well-used then as it does now. Functions and feels like new, though,

I've got one of those Jupiter 12s (LTM 39mm)- use it on my Canon rangefinders.
Nice Soviet Biogon clone! I have the J-12 LTM too but the rear element of the J-12/LTM will hit the light baffles of the Fuji X due to the shorter film (sensor) > flange distance, LTM = 28.8mm vs. Contax/Kiev RF = 34.85mm.
