    XH-1 in 2020

    The X-H1 is a fantastic camera, and a piece of kit you will grow into. Remember you don't have to adjust all of the menu settings, just the ones you require. I was once told, find the camera you want, then buy the model up, then you won't outgrow the camera that quickly. I originally paid 4 figures for mine, and just bought another for half that, your getting a bargain.
  2. I doubt it, as far as Fuji is concerned the H1 is dead, toes up, lifeless, it is an ex camera.
  3. Wow, this is what I have been thinking for sometime. The earlier cameras were photography tool's, mostly everything in front of you, cameras for taking photos. Unfortunately I don't believe there will be a H2 as they have ignored the H1 after taking people's hard earned money. It's a shame my love affair with Fuji is fading.
  4. If you don't want video don't use it. Personally I was looking forward to the xt4, smaller than the xh1 and with IBIS. BUt now that the metering switch has been lost, along with the new screen, I don't think I will bother. And as for you two above, isn't the point of forums to have debate, not character assassination
  5. personally i would add the 14mm2.8 to the 18/55mm 2.8/4. what more would you need.
  6. This Ring Step-Down allows you to use 72mm threaded filters on a 77mm threaded lens this is the quoted text, from the amazon ad. you need to be able to fit a 77mm filter on a 72mm threaded lens.
  7. WR - and while there doing that include the 23 1.4
  8. I own and use both. Both give very similar results photographically, but the T2 is smaller and lighter, which is good for travel, and the cable thread is good in bad weather. When weight is not an issue, the H1 with the 16/55 is an amazing combination. Regrets, none, wouldn't part with either.
  9. When i first picked up the X-H1 a year ago i wasnt very inpressed. Recently picked it up again in my local camera shop, and had a change of opinion, so much so, i purchased one. Used it at a race track with the 100-400, wow so much nicer than my X-T2 with the bigger lens. IBIS is great on the track, compact is great on the street or travel, two fantastic cameras from Fuji. Looking forward to trying the new 16-80 with both.
  10. I think you now know which lens you will buy next. I use both on my X-E3, mostly the 23mm. I personally think the softness on the 23mm is a little over exaggerated.
  11. Go back through your photos and see what focal length you are using most, this will give you a good idea of what you are taking. There must be a good reason you are asking this question, do you want a wider or narrower field of view? Personally I use the 23mm and 56mm lenses. Like Jürgen has said, it's all subjective.
  12. Just had the same problem, many thanks dfaye. Just proves that this site is good for answering qustions.
  13. Announcement from photokina, a really good suggestion for a new lens A further announcement from Panasonic was for its existing Micro Four Third system, where it will be producing a 10-25mm (35mm camera equivalent: 20-50mm) F1.7 Wide Zoom Lens. This will be the world’s first zoom lens to have this ultra-fast constant aperture. Please Fuji, this would be an awesome addition.
  14. Personally I'd leave the 35mm at home, but I do agree with the last comment about the weather sealed lens. The three f2 lens wouldn't need a bag, one on the camera, and one in each pocket.
  15. I'm not sure what all the fuss is about, Panasonic/Leica make a 12-60mm (24-120mm in 35mm) that is f2.8/4.0, and people are getting excited about a f4,0 only lens. Even up scaling from MFT to APS-C this still looks a sizable lens. Why not make something that is better than the opposition, say a constant f3.5. Come on Fuji make a statement.
