Hi,

Interesting. Looks like someone wants a new Fujifilm GFX 100s! ;)

Serial 267 out of 180 made, so he thinks the production number of 180 is nonsense. But, it is usual for makers to begin with number 101. So, the 180 produced might still be correct.

Edit: No, you show serials below 100 in your article.

There was once a time where I would have paid the original starting bid price of $1000 so I could give one a whirl. But, I am not a collector, so it will be interesting to follow the auction.
