I'd rather go unstucking shutters with some film inside Rolleiflexes,
discussing is just boring.

The FX/GX is not so well constructed as any F really was.
I see that in case the Braunschweig guys wished the build a camera with such
a quality the market price would be raised to unaffordable sums.
On the side of HFT treatment I'd say you're walking on the edge. It really
is a market reason and it might be better than older lenses (only in color
rendition) only in optic banks. Then a market reason again.

well, stirring up the thing is not that bad.
Let's go out and load our cameras more often instead.
By the way, I'd really like you to get one of those nice newer beasts. Then
you'd be invited for a nice walk together, same film loaded inside your GX
and my F, same processing lab and finally ... you know we'd be getting the
same. Just tell when you get your new toy and come down to Buenos Aires.
Let me know.
