This is kinda a compliment i think, as that reminds me somehow of my favorite dog ... (sam i am take note ) , ( the mind makes its own mysterious Rorschach connections... ) the little dog , in the original 'grinch' stole christmas..
and all the little ornaments .....

Cool shot . Pepperberry.

Birds eat them , i think. Yes ? They have yellow shells that split off to reveal the berries ? The birds though seem to eat them as a last resort , preferring other things first . ( or i could be wrong on all that )

There are plenty who also prefer the more "filmic" output of the early Fujis,I like the fact the later bodies have much more efficient AF.The first gen AF is pedestrian.They have made enormous progress since the early days!
I'd still rate my X-M1's AF above that of my K-3, though the X-T20 is much better. The X-M1 can still manage most things just fine, I only found that sometimes it wasn't able to lock focus in low light.

I'm not sure I'd say the early Fujis' output is any more "film-y", but it is a nicer overall rendering. Fuji produces output closer to that of film in general, it's one of the things I like about them.

X-T20 and 35/1.4

I'll do a comparison.M1 has the 2nd gen processor which is a fair jump on the initial edition.Superior to E1 and Pro1 which(even with KaizenUpdates) are both SLOW!...Speed came with current gen.It will be interesting comparing K33.

Nikon has the best auto-focusing .
From the cameras i've tried , at least.

But that F 35-70 on any pentax will give nikon a run for the money .... so to speak.

You are probably right. Surfar.
