Hmmm, it's an odd looking gadget, I like the idea of marvelous results but it 
has no wide angle zoom! Maybe I coud cope with 30mm though, we'll see.....

 Meanwhile this is available for $899.- It's slow and rather different design 
but it's direct Foveon sensor yields marvelous results:

 Good Luck but remember if you want professional results, particularily in the 
shadow areas you need fullframe, and Fuji isn't there yet. 

 You're right of course, and dynamic range is what I'm after for my Lightroom 
work. But the best camera is the one you have with you, I'd rather sacrifice a 
tiny bit of image quality to have something that sits in my pocket without 
weighing me down all day.

 Maybe I should get both.....

 It's a Nikon and even though it isn;t one of their pro-oriented models it's 
heavy with a couple of decent lenses and I wish I could get the same results 
from a phone so I didn't have to carry it around all day!

 Check out news from Sony, they are tiny, fullframe mirrorless cameras you can 
equip with Leica glass and they cost a fraction of Leica bodies. Steve Huff has 
a review up on the newest, the A7s:

 Thanks for the info Nabby, I love the look of those Sony's and have downloaded 
a few pics to study, very impressive. The high ISO ones on Huff's site are 
amazing, it makes my old Nikon seem like a museum piece! I rarely use high 
speeds like that, but I've done a few weddings and gig shoots and it would have 
been useful to have that capability.

 I see they have a lot of Zeiss lenses for them too, which makes me happy as I 
had a large Contax outfit for ages and that T* glass is awesome, would love to 
see how my Lightroom methods work out with a set up like that.

 At the moment I've pretty much decided on a Fuji X camera as they are lighter 
still and the lenses are very good, but there's so many to choose from and by 
the time I make my mind up they'll have a new one on the market. 

 I'll continue researching and see what my Christmas bonus brings. Cheers!

  Or if you want to stick with Nikon and use your old glass the Df is a good 
choice, I've had mine for almost a year and it's a true beauty. With a little 
tweaking in LR shooting at ISO 12.800 is no problem.

 Would love one, I could get all nostalgic over those dials. I know someone who 
brought a D750 for his weddings and corporate work and it's a wonderful thing, 
it's a huge step up in quality, and no heavier than what I use at the moment. A 
genuine win-win.

 I'm currently trying to decide on which of those cool little mirrorless 
cameras to replace it with so I can still get decent results without having to 
haul a weighty backpack across the country. It does keep you fit though...
