I’ve been using Drobo for quite some time, now. In fact, I can barely remember the “old days” when I used a standard hard-drive and didn’t have the advantage of drive-swapping, redundant backup, and more.

A good, solid zoom lens is always nice to have in the bag. I’m fairly new to Fuji, but I’m pretty much in the mind-set of switching over to Fuji as soon as possible. The thing is, there are a few lenses I’m still waiting on to be released before I can fully commit to the new […]
