  1. Try turning off "Preview Pic Effect". This will give you the most natural view possible
  2. I don't own the 35mm 1.4 anymore, but I own the 56mm 1.2, which in my opinion, on the XT1 was SLOWER to focus than the 35. On the XT-2 it is much faster. Usable in AF-C, where as on the XT1, I couldn't really shoot much movement at all.

  4. To me it seems like a window light. I think there is some split toning going on as I imagine the wall in reality was white.
  5. You guys are totally right! I haven't set a common methodology for testing. My tests were in no way scientific. Just through my own experience with the lenses. I'm will try to devise a way of testing that anyone could easily repeat. I am thinking with a phone stopwatch perhaps.
  6. Hello everyone! I thought this would be a fun and useful thread (once complete). Basically I don't know of any post/site/blog that has ranked each Fuji X lens based on it's autofocus speed. Let's crowd source the info! I'd like to build a complete list ranking from the slowest to the fastest focussing lenses. I don't have all the lenses, so can only provide a ranked list of what I own. Hoping the community will help complete the list Here's the incomplete list based on my own experience, ranked fastest to slowest. Rank 1 – 35mm f/2 Rank 2 – 16-55 f/2.8 Rank 3 – 14mm f/2.8 Rank 4 – 18-55 f/2.8-4 Rank 5 – 18mm f/2 Rank 6 – 35mm f/1.4 Rank 7 – 56mm f/1.2 Rank 8 – 60mm f/2.4 Rank ?? – 10-24mm f/4 Rank ?? – 16mm f/1.4 Rank ?? – 16-50mm XC f/3.5-5.6 Rank ?? – 27mm f/2.8 Rank ?? – 50-140mm f/2.8 Rank ?? – 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8 Rank ?? – 50-230mm f/4.5-5.7 Rank ?? – 90mm f/2.0 Rank ?? – 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 Rank ?? – Zeiss 12mm f/2.8 Rank ?? – Zeiss 32mm f/1.8 Help complete the list! Let me know if X lens is faster than Y lens and I'll update this post
  7. I ordered a black 35mm lens but got sent the silver version. What do you guys think? I think it's very odd.
  8. Very basic explanation. When you shoot in RAW-only a low-res JPG actually gets created too for faster previewing. This gets embedded into the RAW file. The low res jpeg is 1920x1080pixels in resolution. You'll see this when you try to zoom to 100% to preview your image on the camera. You won't actually be able to view 1:1. If you set your camera to shoot JPG+RAW you'll be able to zoom 1:1. and you won't get the misleading dimension read out. Try it shooting in RAW only and then RAW+FINE. You'll notice the files are definitely both 16MP

  10. Not sure if this counts All of the lights 2 by Andrew Lee, on Flickr
  11. Finally got a chance to play with my 12mm State Hwy 7 by Andrew Lee, on Flickr
  12. Your commercial work is fantastic Paul! And I'd be happy to join PM me the details
  13. Thanks! I like your website and your shots! And yay another NZ fuji user on here

  15. This happens because when you half press you will also get a DOF preview of your image. When you half press, the aperture blades will close down to your chosen aperture (compared to being wide open when not half pressing). There's hardly any light hitting the sensor so the EVF cant maintain its refresh rate
  16. Wandering the streets of Wellington, New Zealand with my new X100T
  17. 7 weeks on a single charge? that's not trueeeee... I comfortably get a full day's worth of shooting though. I like to use EVF mode only to avoid the eye sensor delay. (those seconds count!). I think this saves battery. The rear screen is a power eater. Also just took my X100T ONLY on a 4 day trip. Was awesome. So much more versatile than the XT1+35. I did miss the 35mm sometimes though, for that outdoor reach. But definitely didn't miss it indoors. I think next time I will take both.
  18. Can confirm my X100T is also very noisy with the cap on, or shooting in near darkness. Luckily I don't shoot in those conditions? Since the X100S and X100T use the same processor, but the X100T manages a faster framerate in the LCD/EVF, It's gotta be some software tricks that achieved that. Perhaps that software tricks introduces noise. I'd take noisy 54FPS over clean 24fps anyday though. (thinking back to my original x100 days, eek)
  19. I finally got it! I LOVE it! I think I'll do something similar to you JLing. Take the X100S everywhere, but when I have a bag, take the XT1 with 35mm and 12mm. OVF with the framelines and mini EVF in the corner is such a fun way to shoot. I'm addicted.
