Bill converted from Leica and turned to his new religion, Fuji. He has some clear views on why Fuji is now taking over as the Leica of the new Millennium. Read on....
A wonderful day, a newish car and a mooch along one of England’s heritage railways, preserved and maintained entirely by volunteer labour…..
Last year Fuji brought out a bit of an oddity, a body cap lens. The XM-FL is only available in Japan as at time of writing. In order to get hold of mine I had to resort to eBay and part with seventy-five quid and get it shipped halfway around the world. Two weeks after pressing the button it arrived; possibly the lightest lens-containing parcel I have ever received.
If you want the most up-to-date Leica film camera, incorporating the same auto exposure you will find on the M10, then the choice is clear — it's the current Leica M7.
