    That's correct.  Its incremental. You adjust.  I use it all the time, and it works great. I'm usually at F11 - F16 range

    jlmphotos got a reaction from bce.gatien in Xs10 water damage and sensor gone   
    Agree with BCE except sending it to Fuji.  Most likely the sensor is water damaged, and the motherboard is fried.  I fried my XT2 in salt water.  This happened in 2018 and Fuji wanted like $600US to repair.  I wasn't that in love with it and besides there will be corrosion inside the crevasses and buttons etc.
    Look for another body.  and I have to ask what happened to the lens?

    Thanks @cpX for these. I will see how they look. @jlmphotos thanks, yea I do like the size - the reason why I asked the question was to see if I could anything in the range of 23mm (so it will be like a 35mm Full frame FOV). I will continue to follow the 27mm until I am convinced :). 
    Is there a separate thread somewhere for sample photos for 27mm F2.8 - I am sure there is. I have seen images based on subjects (forum). If there is not, it will be great to create a thread for each lens. I have seen this in 'Pentaxforums'. This gives an idea of the capability of the lenses as they are handled by amateurs, hobbyists to professionals. I recently created one for 23mm f2.

    jlmphotos got a reaction from Bedouin in Defective autofocus of my Fujinon 56mm 1.2   
    Even though I can't offer a solution other than what others have stated here, I will say I bought this lens and used it for it's first official event.  I was photographing three christenings back-to-back in the same church.  The church was extremely well late in afternoon light with large windows down both sides, and skylights running down the center.  Very well lit.  The 56mm on my XT2 would not lock focus.  It was absolutely miserable experience.  I switched to using my 35 1.4, and my 18-55 and breezed through the three events!
    So, my experience with the 56 1.2 has not been positive at all and I would never own that lens.  This particular event was on a Sunday, and I returned the lens on Monday morning and have never looked back
    Heck, I've used the slow and noisy 60mm 2.4 with better results than the 56...
    That was my experience with the 56mm.

    I have been using my iPad Pro instead of my MacBook Air for travel.  Even uploading the JPEG's from the 100s and the 50r It's super fast!
    I LOVE not having to schlep a laptop, and charger.  
    I edited this note to say that I use two SamSung T5 SSD's to store my JPEG's and RAW's.  I the upload "most' of the JPEG's to my iPad which has 1TB of internal storage.  Once Im done reviewing the images on the iPad, I usually delete many of the JPEG"S and am ready for the next days shooting.  I also have synching back to LR turned off as the medium format files quickly clog up the transfer so I don't bother.

    I've been using the 30mm lens and it is truly amazing.  I don't place a lot of ( never mind:  ANY) credence on crap posted online.  I do my own testing out in the field.  I spent three weeks in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and four weeks in Colorado and my most used lens was the 30mm 3.5, and the 100-200.  BOTH of these were amazing.  I couldn't be happier.

    jlmphotos got a reaction from Sany in IBIS - Shooting only or continuous   
    I believe it is - even if another button is assigned for focus.  I have mine set to Continuous as this helps stabilize the image through the viewfinder when using a longer lens on.  The difference in battery usage is not worth not having it on all the time.

    So what?  It's a freakin' beast of a camera.  Great price now, and still available.  I don't see the issue.  I'd think if you are serious you'd want interchangeable -- or just grab the 50mm 3.5 and glue it on the front of the 50R.  Heck, if I hadn't bought the 100s I'd buy another 50r. You have no idea how amazing that camera is.
    My two cents.

    jlmphotos got a reaction from Adam Woodhouse in Best Lens for Interior/Exterior Architecture   
    I've had the opportunity to shoot several resorts in Puerto Rico and Costa Rica.  One was a new resort, and the second/third was for a realtor where the owner wished to sell the resort.  I shot them with my XT2, and XH1 and the Zeiss 12mm 2.8, and the Fuji 16mm 1.4
    In some instances I actually preferred to use the 16 1.4, in a vertical format, and I would stitch multiple images together.  That was just my preference.  I've never owned the 10-24 F4 as at the time it was not weather sealed and it would not have survived my shooting locations.  I shoot between the tropics, to the Arctic and I've heard too many horror stories of the 10-24 failing -- and here I'm talking about the 1st generation which is all that was available at the time of my shoots.  
    If I were shooting the same images today I would definitely get myself the 10-24mm F4 as Fuji improved the survivability of this lens.
    Hope that helps.

    That's what I hear - from Ken and others.  13mm = about 20mm in FF which is pretty nice. I used to have the Nikon 20mm F1.8 (I think it was) when I shot with my Nikon 800e's.  Now THAT was an excellent lens.

    The 35 1.4 will def. work on the X-T4!! I've owned this magnificent lens since 2012!  It's my "you'll have to pry it from my cold dead fingers" lens.  Period.  I use it on my XT1, XT2, and XH1.  The 35 1.4 is equivalent to a 50mm full frame.  You may also want to check out the new Vitrox (?) 33mm 1.4.  However, I prefer my Fuji lenses.

    jlmphotos reacted to Herco in Why do I prefer my x-pro1's images over my x-pro2's?   
    The 16MP sensor in the X-Pro1 and X-T1 is still widely appreciated for its character. Compared to the later 24 and 26MP sensors, the pixel pitch is quite a bit larger. This impacts the levels of noise reduction and sharpening needed for the images.
    When moving to the 24/26MP sensors Fuji adopted a slightly different approach. They moved to a more aggressive NR and Sharpening. Advantage is that the images look cleaner and sharper, but the side-effect is that esp. skin (but also other textures) can look 'plasticky' or less organic. To counter this, I set the NR on the 24/26MP X-cameras to -2 or even -3. The sharpening goes to -1 or -2. That solves the jpegs and preview images somewhat.
    For raw files in Capture One you have far greater control. My recommendation is to set Sharpening to 140-180, Radius to 0.8 (1.0 for 16MP files) and the Threshold to 0 or 0.3 max. Halo Suppression can be around 5-10. For Noise Reduction you can set Lumi NR to 0 for low ISO and up to 50-75 for high ISO images. Set Details and Color to around 50 and use Single Pixel only for long exposures. I don't use LR anymore, so I have no idea of the values there. Since they have a different scale, you can't just copy the numbers between C1 and LR.
    That way the 24/26MP files come out with a bit more 'organic look' just like the 16MP had from the start. It's usually better to have some 'grain' rather than over-sharpening your images. The higher megapixel cameras, the more critical this gets...

    Even though I own the XT2, XH1 and GFX gear I STILL use and LOVE my XT1.  As a matter of fact, I have an exhibition at the newly built Hale Wing at the Boston University Children's Hospital of images taken with the XT1.  IT's that good.  The prints are 30" x 20".  The XT1, using proper shot discipline, is an amazing camera even with only 16 megapixels.  Actually, as test images several years ago I printed the sister image that's to be exhibited at 40" x 30" and they still looked amazing.
    I also believe the XT1 has a more organic quality to the images and hat I believe to be finer grain at higher ISO's.
