    With such a shallow depth if field it will be really difficult to get pin sharp, use face detection + eye detection AF and see how you go.

    You wouldn't notice the difference in reality. I would buy the Fuji and it's the cheapest.

    Antonius reacted to graflex in Watercolour??   
    This problem is rooted in demosaicing the X-Trans color filter array. It is not a sharpening problem -- sharpening exposes and exacerbates the problem. Adobe has improved their handling of the X-Trans CFA but alternative raw converters do a better job of extracting fine detail from X-Trans raw files and avoiding the "watercolor effect." Iridient, Photo Ninja, SilkyPix, Capture One, Raw Therapee, ACDSee all do a better job demosaicing X-Trans. However that doesn't mean they do a better job processing X-Trans overall. There is no clearly best choice. You can get reasonable results from Adobe with careful handling. If maximum fine detail with no "watercolor appearance" is most important to you, you will avoid Adobe for the demosiacing task.
    If you want to make a raw file available for others to see and work with use Dropbox (free account). Here for example is a link to an X-Trans II RAF file that exhibits the problem: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ewzhgah2bqjutqw/DSCF3971.RAF?dl=0

    Not difficult at all. Once you have setup the camera, you hardly need the menu. That is at least true for the X-T1.

    Antonius got a reaction from johant in Is there a XT-2 exposure issue?   
    I never shoot in auto anything when I can. Auto-mode just leads to inconsistency in your lighting. The EVF has made this soooo easy. I also start of with a light meter just to make [emoji817] sure the camera is not lying. Once the lighting stays the same u r set to go with so much more amazing shots

    Antonius reacted to milandro in To those upgrading to X-T2 from X-T1, worth it?   
    If there are complaints it is a minority and the camera is good and if there are no complaints the camera is good.
    So the camera is good whichever way.
    It is one way to see it.
    Anyway, I am not sold on what makes this a “ better” camera, for me, so I am not buying.
    Don’t need faster autofocus, don’t need video, don’t need larger file, don’t need larger grip.
    The Joystick would be nice.
    Tough luck, I will live without.

    here the problems.
    Advantages? Larger file, better video, faster autofocus, need for a bulky grip to advanced focus and video, joystick.
    Do you plan to print any langer than 2 x 3 meter? Are you missing anything from your X-T1? 
    Don’t upgrade fro the mere sake of upgrading.

    I wonder what are the permutations between 1 and 1000mm including any number of zoom combination overlapping each other.
    That’s how I feel when people “ ask” Fuji to produce a lens to cater for the market of ONE.

    Antonius reacted to milandro in More Kaizen Love for X-T1 Coming?   
    so, the so called Kaizen for the X-T1 and 2 has been suspended because it had, apparently, again, some sort of bug.
    However what was revealed is that, as predicted above^, the X-T1 will only receive a technical upgrade ( this time something to do with a flash). I don’t use any flash with my X-T1 camera and won’t “ upgrade”, but it is now more than clear that the upgrades containing real new camera functions seem to have reached their end station. No more goodies, just technical upgrades for new lenses or flashes in production or to come.
    Meanwhile they have reconsidered the official designation of “ discontinued cameras" of the X-T10 and X-E2S. Probably just to give a chance to the various shops with some remaining stock to get rid of them. At my local shop they say that they still have them but that, due to the release of the new models, they aren’t selling any, not even at discounted prices. 
    That is, methinks, hardly surprising because no-one wants to buy yesteryear flavor of the month. Funny how some people who rushed into buying the newest camera still seem to take the same pictures they took before. Apparently they didn’t find the chops that they were looking for in the box where the new cameras came.       they might as well have saved a lot of money if they stayed with their more than sufficient box.

    I always get a bit suspicious when someone claims that a product is "The Best!"
    The best for whom? Compared to what? On which criteria? Why discount that there likely is no "Best for everyone" product? What's the agenda?
    I believe that a product can be very good. I am struggling with believing that a product is "the best".

    Hi Maurice,
    If l give you a little background to the image, it might assist you. The image is very much a grab shot, as at the time l was on public transport (moving ), and therefore l was constricted with what l could achieve. Having seen the developing image l felt it warranted being captured, but there was a problem, and a big one at that. It's shot through smudged and filthy glass. Believe me, what you see now is a distinct improvement on what came out of the camera. However as l liked the image, and the potential story about to unfold, l thought it worth persevering with - after all not ever image has to be perfect to have some merit (well at least to my eyes anyway).
    I will politely refuse your offer of a swap for your Canon
