  1. Well that one sure way to decide which one is best for your needs. 😁
  2. We need more information about how you'll use your camera. If you are travelling I guess size and weight is important. Do you want multiple lenses or just the one. If you have Leica lenses, you probably want a camera that accepts them. Are you a rangefinder guy or SLR? Probably the x-pro 2 will come close to your Leica experience but it depends on what you want.
  3. Welcome to the forum. Based on my own experience, compromising and buying a lens based on budget for size will lead to almost instant regret. I wanted the 16mm but couldn't wait so compromised and bought the 18mm. I've regretted that ever since. Camera bags are easy to change, replacing a lens is a little more complicated.
  4. I switch from Canon 5D Mk III to the x-pro 2. I also use an x-pro 1 as a backup. I use 32mm and 18mm prime lenses.
  5. Welcome to the group from a fellow Canadian. I'm in SE Ontario the place with all that hot air, Ottawa.
  6. I recently bought an x-Pro2 and needed to use an off camera flash. I own the EF-20 and borrowed an inexpensive transmitter/receiver trigger set (FlashFire by PhotoFlex), The test button on the transmitter fired the flash but there was no communication with the camera no matter what settings I used. In fact the selector wheel didn't work for flash settings. Then I read someone's post saying change from Electronic Shutter to Mechanical Shutter. This did the trick. The selector wheel worked, I was able to modify the flash settings and more importantly the camera triggered the flash. For some reason I had to experiment with the shutter speed, 125th a sec is where I ended up. I was surprised as there are a lot of posts saying only a few trigger systems will work with X cameras. Just goes to show you never can tell.
  7. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts after you have used your new camera with this workflow (IT+LR) vs just using LR. Fuji introduced X-Raw recently, there is also Capture one's free version for Fuji to consider. I'm still looking for the process that'll give me what I'm looking for. Best of luck with your new camera.
  8. Welcome to the forum. If you are coming from the film world you're in for a surprise. The good news is that once you're adjusted to the digital aspects, you may find yourself looking to simplify things again, that's what happened to me after a 30 year gap. I think choosing the X-pro 1 and two primes is a great starting point. If you have some of your old lenses, you'll be happy to learn there are a number of adapters out there that will let you use those older lenses again.
  9. Makes sense. Did you know you can get adapters that will let you use other lens mounts on a Fuji x-mount camera? I have one for FD and EF. The older ones are better though as they usually give you control over the aperture. Focus peaking makes manual focusing a breeze. Also they're not that expensive.
  10. Welcome to the forum. I agree with you that investment in glass is the smart way to go. my fav. fuji lens is my 35mm 1.4, give it a try if you can it is a wonderful lens.
  11. Hello from Orleans Ontario Canada. I retired from a desk job 5 years ago. I'm a cancer survivor and am partially blind (I can see detail in my right eye but it too is failing). I have been using an X-Pro 1 on and off for 2 years and now have decided to make the full-time switch and sell my Canon gear (5D Mk iii). I'm making the change because I discovered I really like the rangefinder camera especially the hybrid used by Fuji. In terms of a background, while I have taken a couple courses and workshops, I'm self-taught. With the help of a mentor I began a journey to learn about art and photography in art. I'm looking forward to hearing new voices from this forum.
