Hi Mike,

Does this mean that you won't jump ship from Fuji to the new Nikon mirrorless platform?
Cheers,
Jan Anne Offereins

Still, I fail to understand why this event precipitates an urge to leave NG?

No fears, your wish will be indulged and the account deleted later tonight. It's just curiosity that makes me ask.

Bjorn, it’s because I’m taking up your resources unnecessarily and I have joined another forum concerned with mu4/3 gear and I don’t have the time to devote to NG. My visits to NG have been sporadic to say the least of late!
I feel no animosity to all here and wish you all well.
And by the by Bjorn you do not live up to your alter ego as the “Fierce Bear of the North”
God bless and cheers.

Mike, personally I don't think you would need to leave NG just because you joined any other forum dedicated to the camera you have, as NG is not Nikon specific.

But if it is your decision, I would have to appreciate it.

Cheers and welcome back any time :)
I'm less enthusiastic about m43 since I bought the Df, but we may meet on another site when I get the urge to use that divine Oly 75/1.8 again...
