What’s the Key?

There’s been a spate of new Mirrorless Interchangeable Cameras released the past few months. The Olympus OM-D EM-1 made the news. Flagship, milestone camera – superfast autofocus, fastest in the Olympus family. A nice bunch of classic and current model lenses with more to come. Then Sony rumbled with the Sony A7 duo – full frame (wow!, the words just excite by themselves, Full effing Frame – pardon the lapse in language). You’d think that the gear lust-ers had reached their ultimate nirvana. Rest and chew the Lotus, and all that. No. No. Just announced and being released, the Fuji X-T1 – it’s not Full Frame, but suddenly, what’s the joy in that huh? It looks like a classic Contax RTS. Hardly have time to the drool off the screen with ry with a micro fibre cloth. Ditch the Sony. Get this. Get on the Gear Acquisition Syndrome train. Get on it before the months pass. Before the next must-have-better-than-the-last model appears. Either that or find a Life Expert.
