  1. It's also worth mentioning that, of the fuji lenses out there, this is one of the few that is kind of known for not being super-sharp in general ..... and you have quite a huge number of elements in motion here on top of that with lots of areas that would compete for focus ..... so like the guys above said, first things first, do an objective test of the camera and lens at the focal lengths and aperture that you're describing with everything else out of the picture to determine if your combination is going to produce what end result with every other variable accounted for.
  2. Am I missing something? It really sounds like you need to go buy an a6500 or something .... First the IBIS .... moores law doesn't apply to mechanical apparatus really .... any time you make a mechanical apparatus like IBIS smaller and smaller you also make it more and more delicate and prone to failure .... more importantly than that the fuji execs already covered this a long time ago ... the x mount and the sensor size don't have room to create an ibis apparatus without significant vignetting and you have options of OIS lenses, tripods, steady shot, etc already .... Now for the "fully articulated screen" .... I buy fuji cameras in part specifically because they do NOT feature these ridiculous twisty turney flexy bits that pop out the side of the camera ... they make the whole camera weaker and they take a classic looking design and make it ridiculous. .... the only thing I agree with here is the touch screen ..... it's just silly that it isn't there. As for "becoming another kodak" I think you're missing a huge, huge one here ..... a return to simple, purpose centric designs and exposed manual controls that harken back to a simpler time is the only reason that fuji still exists as a camera company. None of their futuristic ideas ever really took off .... people like me that want something with the tactile feel that they got from cameras they used 20 or 30 or more years ago are the only reason that the X series exists and the only reason that it has pulled the consumer camera division of this company back, nearly, from the dead.
  3. If I have to choose 3 it would be the 14, 23 and 56 with an honorable mention for the 35 ....
  4. Your hit rate with the X-T1 will be similar to what you're seeing with the D600 or better and at least as good as you are seeing with the D800(likely better) but not nearly as good as you would be doing if you were using the D810 you wouldn't be nearly as happy .... the fuji beats my 800 but can't even compare with the focus system in the D810.
