  1. I used the WCL-X100 on the X70 on a trip to New York earlier this year. It worked out pretty fine, but gave some vignetting. Cropping to 4:3 or 3:4 format made up for it. The WCL-X70 will get you even a tad bit wider, without vignetting. It also cost a bit less new. So if you plan to use the wide converter mostly on a X70, I would go for the WCL-X70.
  2. Sorry. The X100F is a little bit thicker than the previous models. Therefore the new case LC-X100F.
  3. - 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 OIS - 10-24mm f/4 OIS - 18mm f/2 - 35mm f/1.4 That's my kit right now, and I'm quite happy with it. Though maybe I will exchange my primes into 23mm f/2 and 56mm f/1.2 in the future, which I think will suite me better.
  4. Please give the next X100 the larger f/1.4 lens that someone dream of. Then I can keep my X100T without any need to buy the new, over-bulky one.
  5. Yes. I want a lens with the IQ and build Q of the 18-55mm f/2.8-4. You want a lens with the IQ and build Q of the 16-55mm f/2.8. That's the difference. You and I don't know the whole philosophy of Fuji's lens design, but the philosophy don't seem to be the same for every lens. Bear that in mind.
  6. Try to be a little more gentle, and a little less bastant, when laying down your words. It's an un-important discussion-topic on the internett. I think it's very possible to make a quality 16-70/80mm f/4 lens with 62mm filter thread. Do you think the biggest lens element on such a lens has to have the same dimensions as the 10-24mm f/4? Comparing Mirrorless APS-C-size lenses with SLR APS-C-size lenses isn't fair. Mirrorless lenses can be built a lot smaller (with the same specs). The Fujifilm XF 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS has 58mm filter thread. That lens is one stop brighter, way better optically, and way better built, than the typically APS-C SLR-kitlenses. For example Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. But they have the same sized filter thread. I think decreasing the aperture to f/4 on the wide end + giving it the 2mm extra wideness, will even out each other. When Fujifilm can make a good quality 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS zoom lens with 58mm, I also think it's possible for them to make a good quality 16-55mm f/4 OIS with 58mm. And then they will have something to play with for the rest of the reach.
  7. The key for me is that it must be smaller and lighter than the 18-135mm, still with OIS. If it will fit somewhere in between the 18-55mm f/2.8-4 and the 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, it would be great. Well. Like some said. At the size and weight of the 10-24mm. But give it 62mm filter diameter.
  8. I'm heading for a 4-day trip to Berlin this saturday. I wonder to just take with me the X100T (+ the TCL). But I guess I will also take with me the X-T1 + 55-200mm, just in case we are heading for the Zoo. And the 14mm, just in case I need something wider.
  9. I have had both the X-T1 and X-E2 for some time now. It's great to have two bodys and decrease the need for changing lenses. But lately the 27mm f/2.8 (and the 35mm f/1.4) has been partly glued on my X-E2, while X-T1 was handling the bigger lenses. The X-E2 with the pancake is a great combo, especially for street photography. But after trying an X100s with leaf shutter, I was sold. Noise aside, the X-E2/27mmf/2.8 was ideal for me for streets. But I missed a small lens for shooting indoors. Typically at restaurants/vacation/partys. In other words both a slightly wider field of view and aperture. I wanted a X100T I sold both the 27mm f/2.8 and the 35mm f/1.4 to half-financing the X100T. I kept the X-E2, just in case. Though I think I will sell that too. I also bought the TCL for X100T, so I'm not missing the 35mm f/1,4 that much. I feel my setup still is kind of flexible. 1. X100T 23mm + X-T1 56mm 2. X-T1 14mm + X100T 33mm (TLC) The only thing I will miss is to have two zooms mounted. I found that to be very useful on roadtrips. And that's the only reason why I haven't sold the X-E2 yet. The price on the used-marked for this is also pretty low nowadays (because of X-T10 I guess), so maybe I will keep it as a backup.
  10. 9-18mm f/4 OIS (smaller than the 10-24mm, the size off 18-55mm without expanding. Filter 58 or 62mm) 16-80mm f/4 OIS (a little bit smaller than the 18-135mm, atleast shorter in size. Filter 62mm) 70mm f2 OIS 1:1 macro (i loved the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS on Canon fullframe. Filter 62mm)
  11. ThinkTank Retrospective 7. Plenty of room for my two bodys with lenses mounted, a third lens and all the accessories that I need. And my tablet. Can also take a fourth lens.
  12. I love having the X100T, and a X-T1 with either 14mm or 56mm. Great combo. I'm planning on adding the TCL for the X100T, so it can be a bit more versatile in combo with the 14mm. Keep the X100s. It's so great when you will travel light with only one camera and no hassle. The 23mm f/1,4 is great, but I think you will miss the compactness of the X100s if you sell it.
  13. I think the 14mm f/2.8 is a perfect companion to the 18-55mm f/2.8-4. For me, it gives me the extra wideness when I need it. Bonus: it shares both the filter size and lens hood with the latter. It's wide enough for most of European cities. Of course, that's my humble opinion. 14mm + 18-55mm is the perfect Fuji light travel kit. Maybe ad the 35mm prime for extra low light goodness.
  14. I'm afraid of the size of this one. It can be huge. But by the sensor size, it can and should be a lot smaller and lighter than the bew Canon 100-400mm with same aperture range, which handles fullframe. Something close to the size and weight of the 50-140mm, but a little bit shorter, is my wild guess. I'm not sure if I will get it. Maybe if it's small enough. Then I will sell my 55-200mm. So I will welcome the 100-200mm range.
  15. +1 Switching between 14mm and 56mm on my X-T1, and 23mm on my X100T
  16. I don't really understand what you're trying to tell with those ancient pictures. You are posting pictures that could have been taken with a cell phone nowadays. Or maybe a paper-piece with a hole and some light. It's not about the gear, but the photographer who captures the photo, with the equipment he or her had at that time. This photography of human movement is great in many ways. It's great because it's creative, well composed, shows some human movements. Ahead of it's time. Imagine how good this picture could have been with todays technology. And even if you do not like it the new way, you could have made it close to this old photo-look in your software. Maybe we can agree to disagree
  17. Yes. It would be impossible, if you needed 1/125s to stop action in dimmed light, and didn't want to, or could, use flash. With the ability to up your ISO some steps it's not quite that impossible anymore. My point is, Welcome every advantage we can get with new technology, instead of talk about the past. The past is gone. Now is now.
  18. Grandmas more often ride wheelchairs than bikes... Of course, I see your point over there, but when we now got the ability too shoot at ISO 3200 with great results. Why not take advantage of it, in combination with fast primes? Instead of thinking of how impossible that was 20 years ago.
  19. I really like my 14mm f/2.8. It's a really great companion for the 18-55mm f/2.8-4. It's noticeably wider (but not too wide), compact, and do have the same filter-diameter and lens hood. It's also tad sharp wide open. Thoug. Would I bought it if it was a little bit bigger and heavier, and f/2 instead? Yes. Probably.
  20. What defines indoor photography? For social photography indoors, typically at a party or hangin out with friends at a bar og restaurant, I like 23mm. It's wide enough, but still narrow enough. A good compromise. You can get a bit of the scene, and still be able to be a bit close and do some portaits. 16mm is a focal length that for me is not wide enough. It's great to have on a zoom, but when I wanna go wide, I really like something av bit wider. But if you need a really fast wide angle, it's so far the only option for Fuji. (If Samyang 12mm f/2 not can do it for you in either or some way).
  21. ThinkTank Retrospective 7 inner dimensions height: 22,4 cm Fujifilm X-T1 depth: 4,7 cm Fujifilm XF 50-140mm f/2.8 OIS length: 17,6 cm Total: 22,3 cm In other words. Perfectly
  22. My wishlist: - 10mm f/2.8 A wider Fuji-prime than the 14mm. The zeiss and samyang 12mm's are good alternatives, but I think a 10mm would be a great combo with the 16mm f/1.4. Maybe not a lens for me, but I think it could be something for the lineup. - 10-20mm (or 18mm) f/4 OIS. I would really love to se a lighter and more compact wide-angle zoom. cutting of 4-6mm in the long end could be enough to get i down to the size of the 18-55mm f/2.8-4. - 70mm f/2.8 OIS macro 1:1 I want a true macro-lens. The 120mm is tempting, but I know thats gonna be too huge for me. I really liked the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS when I had the 5D. So this could be something like that. Thoug a lot smaller. Maybe something comparable in size with the new 90mm f/2.
