$4360.

looking at 4 more fuji lenses...
if bought new and locally they would cost me $4360. cdn.

i already have my name on the list for the new pancake zoom...the 15-45...i think it will be a hoot to play with and could be here soon.
the others are prime lenses that i may or may not follow through on...

i am still in love with the little xe3 bodies and am tempted to buy a third and store it away till it might be needed.
i have not been this content with my gear in years...

From Canada for $4350, you could come to Australia for a couple of months.

XE3 looking good!

CAD is 0.77 USD...
But I would also check with BH. They still have free shipping with province taxes paid on checkout.

I’m much relieved. I thought you might have found a very nice bag for that amount.

You know you don’t have to buy them all Joe? You can just have a small selection.

I can understand having two bodies, one loaded with BW and one with colour film. You're gonna load that 3rd body with IR film?

Wait, XE3 is a digital camera?!!

i prefer to shoot with 2 bodies together, 2 lenses so less changing, less dust etc. i used to use 3 canon p bodies...much heavier in the old days

No idea... it isn't mine. I ordered the lens but it'll take 1-2 months to get here.

Very interesting.

How do you feel about the continuous aperture ring?

What a temptation. I am ready to buy one of these.

It’s not something I’m going to like much but I will deal with it. I plan to use this sparingly and was really more curious. I’ll pair it with a XE1 when I’m going somewhere i Don’t want to bring my
More expensive cameras.
