      My luck finally ran out…. dropped my Fuji x100s I have had for 6 years and it is out of commission. Even though 95% of the photos I take with 35mm, looking for a new digital point and shoot or mirrorless camera. Would like to get a nice used one for $400 or less. Thinking of getting another Fuji x100s since the price has came down so much and I really love that camera, but before I do… any recommendations?

      hmm how important is to have a VF for you? I know for me is not that important on a P&S cam. So have you considered

      • Canon Eos M6 or M100 + 22mm f2 (35mm equiv) both are cheap, fast(ter than your fuji x100s) and with a newer sensor?
      • Ricoh GR (i know its not a 35mm lens but is a great cam)
      • Lumix GX80/85 + 17mm f1.8

      otherwise I think you should stick to what you know and love and keep shooting?

      I do like a viewfinder also but don’t just have to have one. Haven’t tried to many other digital cameras. Always interesting to see what people’s favorites are. Also looking at a fuji x70.

      GR with a external finder is a cool setup. still super compact too.

      Dudes. I joined the M43 club today!

      I knew I was going to get the Lumix GX85 or the GX9. I had to go look at them today. I was just planning to handle them and then go back home and read more reviews. The GX9 exp comp dial looked weird to me. Such a weird little thing, but I have to like looking at the camera from every angle lol. I had to pass on it.

      Anyways, there was an open box GX85 that was $100 cheaper than normal plus a $200 instant rebate! Basically I got the camera for $300 off. I pulled the trigger and I own it now. Total was $350 out the door including tax.

      I will report back. Should I start doing camera reviews on the site?
