So, here's the good- great economics. I love having this camera in my hands. I could shoot on it all day. I'm coming from using mostly older, manual film cameras. I love the sizes of the "Fujicron" lenses and hope they come out with more.
The bad- the optical viewfinder is worthless. Seriously, it won't focus on anything. I've tried messing with the settings a hundred different ways and it's always bad. The evf in it is also super unreliable- but not for focusing. It's dim as all get out, and will not give you a reliable prediction of what your picture will look like.
I was excited for the film simulations, but in my experience they don't actually simulate the chosen film at all. Or if they do, it's in a very generic way. It's like they went, "Velvia has saturated colors. Let's saturate the colors and call it Velvia," forgetting that various Velvia (50 or 100) act very different from each other, and are prone to favoring certain color wave lengths. Either way, Velvia film looks nothing like the Velvia simulation and the same goes for all of them. That being said, I still think the film simulation is a cool feature, even if it doesn't simulate any actual films.
The OVF is the biggest let down for me as that's why I got this in the first place over the XT2 and the like. Well that and the whole "rangefinders don't block out your face so people feel more at ease when you're photographing them" thing, which I think holds true with this camera. It's very unassuming and I think people feel more at ease in front of it, especially with the "Fujicron" lenses. I also have the 16mm f1.4, but I don't think it's all that. Actually plan on returning it and getting the 14mm instead, which I feel is smaller and less intrusive.
The images from this lens are ok, but I feel like they look a bit flat. Maybe I'm a hipster, but that's the way I feel about most digital pictures. There's no real breath to them. They're very matter of fact, nothing magical or dreamlike about them.
I was on the fence about whether to return this or not for a couple weeks. It had grown on me, and like I said, I love the feel of it in hands. I even got some good pics with it!
But in the end, I decided to return it and use the money to buy a used Contax G2 instead. I guess I'm just a film guy.
