Same here. I have the lens and have used it with both the X-T1 and the X-T2 with excellent results. However I soon learned that a tripod is not necessarily the answer because even with a high end carbon fibre tripod there is still a lack of stability unless I use a remote and a tendency for the lens to "settle" after framing the image. Not good for bird photography for instance. So I now use it with a bean bag or hand held given the excellent 5 stop IS performance with a much higher keeper rate. This was the X-T2 hand held at 580mm FL - 120th sec @ f9 ISO 400.
