    you got a pammy!? NICE!

    That’s Eric Yang’s hamburger watch, not mine!

    Those aren’t American college students in the last picture. Based on the TTC sign in the background, I’d say that’s Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

    Great looking camera. I’ve got a similar one – Olympus EP-1 – and it’s amazing. Can’t praise it enough. Just saying.

    Ray Hull on May 16, 2011 3:20 PM:

    So, is the name of that (suits?) emporium across the street really “Continuous Lean?”

    Nebraska has the best thrift stores in the entire fucking world.

    Ray Hull on May 16, 2011 3:29 PM:

    Ah, no true rangefinder is complete without the greatest threat known to RF photography: a Lens Cap!

    Re: The Burning House.

    As someone that has had to run out of their house while the building is on fire you don’t generally have time or the place of mind to collect your favourite things. We lost EVERYTHING in the fire, I left with the clothes I was wearing, my wallet and house keys.

    Awesome way of re-stating Foster’s Burning House… very clever.

    What is the make and model of the watch displayed next to the camera.

    A true beauty of a time piece

    DPreview have just posted a pretty comprehensive review of the Fuji camera…

    Michael Williams on May 16, 2011 8:40 PM:

    Thanks Bork. I updated the text to reflect that those aren’t actually real American college students.

    Mark on May 16, 2011 9:05 PM:

    Michael, what do you mean by Hamburger Watch is that a shot at Panerai? While I know this is mostly a blog about American made things, I always wondered how you feel about Panerai.

    On the Life photo (bottom link), is it just me or does the guy on the right side of the image look like a young Mr. Burns from the Simpsons…

    Cameron on May 18, 2011 1:31 AM:

    Elias, he looks more like Crispin Glover as George McFly to me. But I can see the Burns as well.
