  1. Some women's volleyball photos I have taken with X-Pro2 and 16-80.
  2. Adela was a professional photo model, and now she is a flight attendant. We did this photo shoot in March of 2019, I had an idea to picture her at aeronautical museum among aircraft. Fujifilm X-Pro2 with Fujinon XF 35mm f1.4 R.
  3. Thank you for your suggestion, but 70 is too tele for me, I did some shots regularly at 50, 55, 60 on my 16-80.
  4. Thank you! This is great news. Fujinon XF 55-200mm f3.5-4.8 R LM OIS has got nice price, and its aperture in the range of 55-80mm is a little faster than on Fujinon XF 16-80mm f4 R OIS WR that I own, but at 200mm it's f4.8 which I can't tell is usable. I bought 16-80 for indoor sports but also for general purposes like landscape and architecture to complement my 35mm f1.4. For indoor sports, I used it in the range of 50-80mm so far, and I needed some more zoom, but I also know that at some other gyms that I've been before even the 35mm was fine when I could place myself near the court. Not sure if 55-200 is ideal solution for sports either, but it's much cheaper and lighter than 50-140. Heck I think even f2.8 is too small aperture for indoor sports. If I don't go for 50-140, I would most likely go for 55-200.
  5. Hello everyone! I have purchased Fujifilm X-Pro2 and Fujinon XF 35mm f1.4 R in late 2018. Owning a Leica MP and a Summilux-M 50mm f1.4 ASPH. before, I wanted that rangefinder feel and classical aperture and shutter speed and manual focus controls, that is why I opted for Fuji and X-Pro2. Although I wish it was a real rangefinder and a real manual focus. But a new digital Leica would have been too expensive for me. My intention was to do portrait and landscape and street photography as a hobby. But lately I have discovered a passion for women's volleyball photography. I used the 35mm f1.4 when I could position myself right next to the court, and it was usable, especially because of the large aperture. This year, I have purchased XF 16-80mm f4 R OIS WR for that purpose. I know it is not ideal zoom nor aperture for indoor sports, but it was a compromise of the usability and price. I am somewhat satisfied with this lens, but would like to move further. Since I still find XF 50-140mm f2.8 R LM OIS WR to be too expensive and large and heavy for my amateur purposes, I was wondering coud anyone advice me of a Fuji or a third-party lens which would be good for indoor sports but not too expensive? Ideally some zoom lense in the range of 35-150mm with f2.8, or a prime lense of around 50-60mm with f1 to f2? I was watching Fuji primes reviews in this range, and all have slow autofocus, except for 50mm f2, but 50mm prime would probably be too wide for indoor sports, but maybe that larger aperture of f2 would be usable for lower ISO and possibility of better cropping. Also, I have never upgraded camera body and lense firmware. If my version is, say 2, could I just upgrade it to version 5, or I need to upgrade it each new version step by step?
  6. Is there an option to completely turn off the front command dial?
  7. Oh, I have figured it out, it is the front command dial I was even not aware of, I was accidentally moving it while turning the camera from landscape to portrait framing, and it overrode my manual shutter speed setting, which is kind of annoying that it is there and does that, totally unnecessary, I can only be more careful, too many dials and buttons.
  8. Hi! I was shooting a volleyball match this evening with X-Pro2 & 16-80mm/f4. I have set the shutter speed to 1/1000s and auto ISO, but while taking the photos, something overrode my manual shutter speed setting, and after few dozen of shots it switched first to 1/1250s and then to 1/1600s without me noticing it, pushing the ISO from 5000 to 10000. What is it about, is it some combination of buttons that does this, and how to prevent it?
  9. Love that old town calm atmosphere.
  10. Amazing fountain. I like the composition. I am only not sure about the light, maybe it would have been better that the whole image was in shadow and then to overexpose it a bit because the fountain is dark, or if the fountain was in sunlight.
