  1. X100 V? maybe... But why wait? I shot with the XT1 and 2. Waiting for the XT3. Finally bought it!!! Then the XH1 went on sale for 1299 with the grip and three batteries so I returned the camera I had been waiting for, the XT3, and bought the XH1. I absolutely love and made the best single decision. The XH1 is amazing. So, lesson I learned: Stop waiting. Get what's available and use the shit out of it.
  2. What are you shooting? Does max speed matter? I shoot the XT1, XT2 and the XH1 with my original lenses from 2012 including the 60mm 2.4, the 35mm 1.4, and the 18-55. I find them all "fast enough". I shoot four small grand kids - aged 12 months to 8 years old with ANY of these lenses and I don't have much of a problem. Yes, I do miss focus every now and then, but for the most part I nail the shots I need. I use zone focus, 9 points, and away I go.
  3. I was satisfied with my XT1 and XT2 -- that is, until I fell in love with the XH1!! I still have the other two, but use them strictly as back up. The XH1 has been on sale for 1299.00 with the body, the battery grip, and three batteries. I'd try and stretch for that. I've been a Fuji shooter since 2012 with an X-E1 and the 18-55 and the 35mm 1.4 lens. If these options are still too expensive how about buying one of the optional grips? I've seen them on sale, for various Fuji series cameras, for under 75.00 Hope that helps. J
  4. You should. Yes.
  5. I'd leave the 12. I packed my 12 2.8 Zeiss, and my 16 1.4 to Iceland. In two weeks there I used the 12 2.8 once, and the 16 1.4 exactly ZERO times. I used the 16-55 2.8 on the X-H1 and the 50-140 2.8 on my X-T2. Originally I was going to pack one of my two 18-55 lens and the 55-200. But, after checking the weather I decided to go with the sealed lenses as rain was forecasted for several days of my stay there.
  6. Cards are dirt cheap. Replace and move on. I own over 30+ cards. each one is dated and numbered. Once they hit 3-4 years old, they get trashed whether they still work or not.
  7. I would also love to see the option as to whether to reset or not.
  8. I own TWO copies of the 18-55, as well as the 16-55 2.8. Other than a slight loss of sharpness wide open at the corners on the 18-55 at 2.8 and F4 on the long end, you really can't tell. The 16-55 has some better micro-contrast but again unless you are comparing them side-by-side you really can't tell.
  9. I own the Xt1, 2, and the X-H1. And I gotta say The x-H1 is freakin' amazing. I had originally bought the x-t3 but returned it due to the X-H1 on sale for 1299 with the grip and two batteries! Honestly, it is such an amazing camera, that I haven't touched my X-T2 since returning from Iceland where I had my 50-140 mounted on it, and the 16-55 on the X-H1.
  10. Well, the raw is always in color no matter what. However, if you use the FREE version of Capture one 12, I own the full Pro version of C1 v12 and I can change the raw file into whatever I want from a drop down menu. It has all the Fuji profiles.
  11. IF a polarizer is used with a wide-angle (such as the 16 1.4 or 12mm 2.8 it will show different effects where the sky will be darker in one area of the sky opposed to the other. I use Singh-Ray Warming Polarizer -- and even with the wide's I still get the "discoloration"
  12. Look at the X-H1. 1299.00 price can't be beat. I actually bought the X-T3, but when I saw the X-H1 for 1299 with the grip and two batteries, I returned the X-T3 and kept the X-H1. It's amazing, and can't beat the price.
  13. YEs. Medium Format on my Mamiya 645 AFD. Not as much as I should but it's there.
  14. Good for you! I have two copies of the 18-55 and I also own the 16-55 2.8. Guess which one I usually pick to take with me: 18-55. LOL I also own the 23 1.4, 35 1.5 and 60 2.4 -- But the 18-55 is just an awesome lens.
  15. I've printed up to 30 x 20 from a 6mp file way back in 2005. With the 24mp files, you can easily do 30 x 20 and larger! I've seen 40 x 30 and bigger at a Fuji show in NYC. Of course, we photographers tend to pixel peep. So if you stand back 3-4 feet the image, assuming you used proper shot discipline, will be amazing. At home I print 13 x 19 weekly but yeah you can go pretty large.
