It's an update to the G1, since it adds AVCHD Lite, but it's not an update to the GH1 which has full res AVCHD.

I think you meant to say that David Bailey was the model for Thomas in Antonioni's Blow up (Thomas is the character, David Hemmings was the actor who played him).
Ms Bown was awarded the CBE in 1995, not the MBE, and your link should go here not to the town near Brazzaville Unknown Bown 1947-1967 is a treasure too.

If the X1 is priced at around $2000, then it's going to be in the same price bracket as used M8 bodies (soon, if not already). Since the M8's issues—other than the 1.3x—are pretty much historical (with dotted lenses, IR/UV filters and firmware v2.04 It Just Works™), it'll be interesting to see how the X1 fares against competition from used M8s and M8.2s. (Since the M9 has an internal IR filter, there should be lots of cheap IR/UV filters on the market to go with the cheap s/h M8 bodies)

Recent versions of the f1.0 Noctilux take 60mm filters, but the very first version of the f1.0—produced between 1976 and 1978—takes 58mm filters (same as the earlier 50mm f1.2 Noctilux). I had to special order the 58mm B+W UV/IR filter for my Series 1 Noct, and it took almost 4 months to arrive.

To a British reader that is an absolutely standard brick, of the type the majority of our houses are made from. The indentation in the top is known as the 'frog'.
