Hello,

I'm new to the group and after a week test drive with a rented XT-1 and 23mm I fell in love. I recently sold my D800 and 50mm 1.4G.

I have a budget of $2,800 to spend and start my Fujifilm journey. I mainly shoot glamour, fashion look books, party events and the occasional wedding so with they upcoming Fuji instant savings event I'm trying to decide between the following kits to get me going,

Kit#1 - Fuji XT-1 ,Fuji grip and Fuji 16-55mm f/2.8
Kit#2 - Fuji XT-1 ,Fuji grip Fuji 23mm & Fuji 56mm

Any advice is greatly appreciated

While I was trying out an X-Pro2 today I also took a look at the new X-E2s. I had my X-E2 with me as well, and compared the cameras. They are close to identical, but the new camera has a better EVF, like the one in the XT10. It is a bit larger, and noticeably sharper, crisper. So there is at least one significant upgrade that I saw right away. The X-E2s also has a differnt tactile feel, with a slightly more grippy-rubbery skin.

hi all,

Anyone experience such before when focusing using face detection mode, green box is locked onto the face and shutter is pressed. However when playback, the image appears misfocus. Face detected green box is still shown on the face however the background is focused instead. Hence, the person appeared to be blur.

Any idea?

Thanks!

I stumbled on an opportunity to try out the new X-Pro2, and just spent 2-1/2 hours playing with one. I am totally sold. It is fantastic. The viewfinder is beautiful, with really crisp EVF that made me feel like peaking was no longer needed for manual focus. The faster refresh rate is phenomenal. Both the OVF and EVF seem a bit bigger as well. The frame lines in the OVF are very precise compared to the X-Pro1, and the mini-evf visible in the OVF works very well. I love this camera. Everything works better, faster, snappier, sharper.

The new shutter is very quiet. The controls are all right where you can hit them without changing grip or needing to look up from the viewfinder. Even the new ISO dial works fairly easily while looking through the VF. The new sensor produces images that look great at at least one stop faster ISO.

I had the presence of mind to bring along a Pentax 55mmf2 lens and adapter, so I was able to see how an adapted MF lens handled on the X-Pro2. I really like the new Hybrid finder for MF lenses. The EVF is really nice for focusing, very very clear and sharp, as I said I like it best without peaking now. The experience is much closer to a bright old style manual focus SLR viewfinder now. At the same time using the manual focus lens with the OVF is greatly improved. I like using the small EVF window to tune MF while in the OVF, and in addition you can have it set to show the whole frame to confirm framing, although the framelines in the OVF are so accurate now that this is really redundant.

AF is much faster and super precise in the OVF, but I also really liked using back-button AF while using the MF mode; the little EVF window functions as focus confirmation when you focus this way.

The X-Pro2 is on a whole new level. The myriad small changes sound less impressive when you list them one at a time, but when you use the camera they add up to a whole new experience.

I also tried out the new 100-400 zoom. The OIS on that thing is astonishing. I was hand-holding the camera at 400mm and 1/50 of a second, no problem (as best as I could see while reviewing the image in-camera). For all I know it might go even lower. This lens will be a truly effective wildlife shooting tool. With the 1.4 x teleconverter on it was still easy to get hand-held shots, at the equivelant framing of a 900mm lens. Insane.

Here is my Pentax SMC-M 55mm/2 on the X-Pro2:

Took my X-E1 out for a walk with my new XF18 and took a couple of shots from the Archway bridge, also infamously known as suicide bridge.

Here's a quick B&W conversion from one of the shots. This one is 4 seconds at f/4.

Hey guys,

I am planning on switching my camera gear out and wanted to look at either the X-T1, X-t10, X-e2. I have done the research on all of these but I can't find any test results on these cameras with the new firmware 4.0 updates. The prices for each new with the 18-55mm 2.8-4 kit lens
X-T1 - $1699
X-T10 - $1149
X-E2 - $949
( All Canadian prices)

I am planning on using if for more hobby than professional but I am a secondary shooter for weddings. I don't really care about the weather sealing aspect of the X-T1 or the tilt screen in either of the XT1/XT10. Some questions I have are:

1 - Is there much difference between the cameras performance now with the Firmware updates?

2 - Is the X-T1 worth the extra ( 500-700) if I do not need weather sealing or tilt screen?

3 - Is the 50-140mm 2.8 worth the extra $1000 over the 50-200mm 3.5-4.8?

Thank you all for your help.

I am in the enthusiast market so I’m sure someone who is a better photographer than I could have taken some better photos. But for myself I am very happy with the lens. The build quality is very solid and for the weight balances quite nicely with my XT1. The build quality on the 1.4x is great and the size and weight of it is not noticeable against the big lens.

I had the opportunity to try out the 100-400mm this past weekend in southern Missouri. The weather was overcast and incredibly windy so I appreciated the image stabilization to get some okay shots of the bald eagles wintering there. The shots are not incredibly sharp of the eagles due to some camera shake. I also did miss the extra stop of light when I added the 1.4x teleconvertor but the reach made up for it. However I was personally happy with the images I got. I'm sure using a tripod would make the images much sharper.

Nice morning so took a walk over to Houghton Mill on the Great Ouse river in Cambridgeshire.
The Mill is still operational and when its open you can buy bags of flour that have been milled there.

Don't know if it is of interst to someone, but the Fujifilm Gallery Store in Funan Digital Mall in Singapore already has an X-pro2 to play with.

I spent about an hour today at their place and played around with the camera.
I liked it's overall speed, PiP focus assist/confirmation, focusing speed, solid feel and the optical viewfinder in general.
I did not like the eyepoint of the viewfinder as it was not possible to see the whole viewfinder with my glasses, it also felt quite heavy.

I tried the camera with the 23mm f1.4 and the 35mm f2 lenses. Both lenses give the same viewfinder experience due to the optional lens in the viewfinder. EVF felt just like my X-E2.

I own an EOS 5DII (850g) and an X-E2 (350g). The X-pro2 at 495g feels more like my 5DII, the lightness of the X-E2 is gone, even if it's closer in weight to the X-E2 than to the Canon.

So, if you pass through Singapore during the next few weeks, as I did today on my way home, and you are interested in the X-pro2, go and have a look. The guys in the shop were very friendly.

Oh my, I seem to develop some GAS. Go home, see the doctor, maybe he has some pills... .

Hi, I've bought my Fuji kit after a long time shooting with SLR Canon gear, low weight and optical quality were the reasons for the move, hoping to enjoy here a lot.

Two times a hear, if the weather cooperates, you can catch the sun setting over Mt. Fuji from my location. Not great weather as the air was full of moisture. I'm looking directly over Tokyo which accounts for the muck in the air...but, it does make for a colorful sunset. X-T1 50-200mm

Anyone else see this posting?

The main gist of it says, "You should always turn off image stabilization on your lens before you travel so as to lock floating lens elements in place and minimize the chances of them being jostled and damaged en-route.”

Near the end of the article Thom mentions that Lens Rentals tested a bunch of lenses by gently shaking them. I figure I'd try with my two zooms. Well the 55-200mm definitely has a rattle. While the 18-55 has a subtle movement.

Anyone else care to test there lenses?

Tonight I attended the announcement night for the new 100MPx Phase 1 camera. Phase 1 is using Australian photographer, Alexia Sinclair as one of the promotional photographers. She attended the evening in person and I took my X-T1 along for the night.

They had some still life to photograph and then out came a model with a snake! The Phase 1 cams were firing using huge studio flash units and were set to f22 and indeed produced amazing results. Camera with lens and 100MPxl back a mere Au$61k. Meanwhile I was taking my photos on an X-T1 using ambient light.

I have a Fuji X-T1 and a Canon 5D MkIII. I have a HiTech 100x100mm filter holder and HiTech 3-stop ND solid and Grad filters. I have been using with the Canon with no problem. But when used with the Fuji I get a definite magenta color cast. From research I believe this is attributable to the absence of any IR filter in the Fuji, and also that the HiTech filters do not filter the IR.
Is this a correct understanding?
I have become aware of the Nisi filters.
I note on the Nisi website product description of the Nisi 100x100mm Nano IR Neutral Density filter... that "do not affect the coloration of the image" .
Would it be safe to assume that using these Nisi filters in combination with the Fuji X-T1, one would not get a color cast. Has anyone had experience with these Nisi filters?

Did anyone find the measurements for the nodal points on the current lens lineup?

All I could find online was this:

18mm: 69
23mm: 62
35mm: 52
55mm: 42

Any help would be appreciated, as it seams a lot of work.

Hi all, I wondered if there is anyone with knowledge on the durability of the finish on the XT-10. I know the XT-1 Silver edition has a (supposedly) stronger finish. My black XT-1 seems to have a softer black finish you need to be careful with. How is this with the black and silver XT-10. Would it matter what color I would get?

More than 50% of them take place within 5 miles of my home. :)

Come to think of it - these are less than 1 mile from the casita. It's so easy to always have an X camera while out walking the dog.

Luckily Lake Washington is nearby. X-T1 50-230 I love the compact light nature of this lens. On a sunny day - it's hard to beat.
