Pics of cameras and lenses

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.

I sold my X-100s and bought the wide angle attachment for the X-100v with the $$. I guess that means I can answer the above question about frame lines in the viewfinder now.
