    segedi got a reaction from Gourab Guha in Fiji X100V IQ Issue   
    I shoot both RAW and JPG, but mostly use JPEGs when sharing. And here's my reasoning.
    My film sim of choice on my X-T2 is Acros+R. Street, landscape, portraits, are almost always in B&W for a couple of reasons. I find i just see better in black and white and can focus on composition. I know I have the RAW file if I want color or to make adjustments. And I typically use the phone app to pull JPEGs immediately to post to Instagram or to email to the subjects of events or street portraits.
    When I shoot with adapted lenses and manual focus, the black and white rendition allows the red-outlined focus peaking highlight to be easily visible enabling faster focusing.
    And ISO 3200 noise in B&W looks just fine to my eyes.
    Also, I encourage you to explore faster apertures and topping out at f/8. A more shallow depth of field aids the viewer and even at f/8 there should be plenty in focus and sharper images.

    segedi got a reaction from Francisco Evangelista in 16-55 lens + (?)   
    Based on your subject preferences:
    90mm - some might think this is an odd choice for landscape and street, but I don't!

    segedi got a reaction from Stealthy Ninja in Sold off Canon gear, need to get some Fuji lenses 56mm and 10-24 not sure about.   
    Wanted to pick up a 16-55, but saw a 10-24 used, locally, so that was my first lens purchase for a newly acquired X-T1. I'm pretty happy with it so far! 
    I shoot a lot of street and some landscape. I've had it for less than a week and haven't used it for street yet, but I did shoot some landscapes:
    I also picked up a 18-55 for a steal, but don't have it yet. The 50-140 and 56mm are next on my list. I'd be a happy camper with those.
    As an aside, I have also tried a Leica Summilux 50mm, Summarits (35/75mm) and they all work pretty well. The 50 Summilux is holding me back from the 56mm purchase as the IQ is very nice, but I'm not convinced I want to manually focus anything on the X-T1...

    segedi got a reaction from CRAusmus in Got myself an XT 1   
    I got one in a trade for a lens recently. Couldn't sell the Sigma macro lens for Nikon, so I took the trade. And am happy I did - It's a pretty fun camera.
    The layout of the controls is pretty good. The buttons are a little hard to press - but you won't press them by accident!
    Some recent shots from my first trip out with it:
