From Fuji Xpro1 to Zenit TTL.... but wait...


Ok, i did not win the Xpro1 on ebay and i did not have the intention to win anyway, just in a blink of an eye, i decided to say no to Xpro1. I guess i just wait for the new X-T1. I wanted the Xpro1 because of its all black rangefinder-ish looks and now its quite cheaper than before. A used Xpro1 is cheap but combine with the shipping cost, it almost cost as a new one. So i decided not to challenge the bid. i love rangefinder looks, thats why i bought the x100s. and also the X-M1...although after owning the XM1, it didnt look retro enough nor rangefinderish looking. i guess GAS just poofed, gone, disappear. thats the ugly of GAS. Just as soon you bought it, your GAS suddenly is gone. Speaking of rangefinder style design, i also have a soft spot for classic boxy SLR. Thats why i'll just wait for the new XT1.... lets see how classic looking it will be...i hope im not disappointed. So much going on in my mind, so much questions...it goes like this....

Should i buy the Xpro1 now or should i just wait for the new classic SLR design the X-T1?
but
the Xpro1 now is cheaper and the XT1 might cost a bit more than my budget?
but
if i save my money instead of buying the Xpro1, i could fund that to buy an XT1
or 
i should just wait for the new Xpro1S or Xpro2 but Xpro1 is cheap now?
but
it will always be cheap in the future since its an old camera
but
but
but

in the end i just wait for the new XT1 and the new Xpro1S.... for now...

SO with the Xpro1 out of the way, i guess to ease my GAS is to buy the handsome looking Zenit TTL, since its cost is way cheaper than the Xpro1. i shoot film if i have to. thats how handsomely attractive the Zenit is.

But wait, i just got a card from the post office. i think my Olympus OM10 has arrived!

  2. I have a Zenit TTL, and now I want a XT1, given the Fuji looks like a modern version of the Soviet classic.
