You will have to pry my xPan out of my cold dead hands. Just wish my scanner 
hadn't gone and shot craps. I have a non working Minolta 120 scanner modified 
to scan xPan format. Apparently when Minolta sold to sony, all the existing 
Minolta repairmen ran into the ocean.

I had that camera also and was as you described. I had to take some family 
portraits at a wedding once, it produced fantastic pictures. For some reason it 
worked well with Fuji Superia Reala for me. But I liked that camera. The XPan 
was also similarly fun to use, with nice lenses. Except that with my film 
scanner, it was a pain to scan the extra wide images.
