    jlees got a reaction from Liturram in Iridient vs. Lightroom vs. Capture One   
    Hi oldfashioned1536,
    I agree with aceflibble there is no best, you just have to get what you need. And this might need some trial and error (best before breaking the piggy bank)
    Coming from Aperture because S. Jobs inheritors killed it, I downloaded Lightroom, Aftershot, DxO and Capture 1 on thirty day trials and 'played' with them to see what suited me best.
    So I would suggest you do the same, however I do not know if Iridient is available on a trial basis.
    Hope this is useful.
    Best regards
    Jeremy
     
    FWIW : I opted for Capture One, which I now use exclusively, and to date have no complaints but this is me. But others may have different experiences.

    The semi circular patterns that you see in the image are known as: “ digital color banding " (in this case semicircular because of the sun in that particular position but they can be straight too).

    Hi girls and guys,
     
    After shooting with an X100 series camera for 6 years now I thought it was time.
     
    As of today I only own an X100F and solely shoot with the 23mm lens mounted on it. No WCL or TCL, just the lens on the X100F.
     
    And to share and show how versatile this little camera can be, and that can be the original X100, the X100S, X100T and of course the X100F, I produced a short clip which you can watch on youtube.

    jlees reacted to danwells in Fujifilm X-PRO2 rumors   
    Fuji is as well set as anyone in the digital camera business - there's some profit in an X-Pro 2, and in a great lens - with their more unusual lineup, they'll never sell 10 million interchangeable lens cameras/year, but they are set up to be profitable on a modest volume of enthusiast/pro cameras... Almost all of the profit has been squeezed out of a $100 compact. Companies that rely heavily on inexpensive compacts (or even low-end DSLRs) have the problem that they can sell all the units they want, but they can't make anything at it (ask any Android cell phone vender - or ask anyone making Windows PCs a few years ago).
     
    These are the camera companies that will probably make it:
     
    Canon and Nikon will probably be OK - they both have pro businesses that actually make money (and Canon, like Fuji, is a copier company that makes cameras).
     
    Sony WILL be OK - their real imaging business is selling sensors to everyone - ,actually mostly to Apple - their "real camera business", including both their own cameras and all the sensors they sell to everybody else in the camera business, is much smaller than cellphone sensors.
     
    If I were mostly a Sony shooter, what I'd worry about is that, with the restructuring, the highly successful sensor division no longer has an interest in the camera division. The camera division, taken alone, is not in a great place - they have huge sales volume in compacts and cheap mirrorless (no profit), plus a smaller business in high-end cameras with some REAL innovation in the bodies, but with a lens problem. When they are no longer using the A7 series to showcase sensors, will they stay as interested?
     
    Fuji will be OK - they are selling mostly high-end cameras and lenses with decent margins - FinePix goes away (and it will), and they're left with a profitable high-end camera business that keeps their name in the public eye - and several of their executives are passionate photographers (it came out in a recent interview that one of their chief designers is a Hasselblad Master when he's not designing cameras for Fuji, and I've heard of several others). They'd ditch that division if it lost a lot of money, but it's profitable (probably has better than decent margins), and it has a lot of PR value.
     
    A high-prestige, profitable little division is something a lot of companies would like to have. They make something like half a million high end cameras a year (300,000 mirrorless and a couple hundred thousand X100Ts and X70s - remember that they can make 160,000 X-Pro 2s, and half a million might even be low), and might net $300 on each one,including lens profits (a nice little $150 million business)??? They're one of the few manufacturers who sell a bunch of lenses per body (other than X100Ts and X70s, of course), and a lot of their body sales are X-T1s and 10s, with some XE2 bodies mixed in (all high enough up the scale to be profitable, and many will sell several lenses each), not X-A1 and X-M1 bodies (probably hard to profit on, and tend to keep their kit lenses). This year will be even better, with significant sales of X-Pro 2 and X-T2 bodies and high end lenses to go with them.
     
     
     
    Here are the companies I'd really worry about...
    Olympus has been wracked by scandal, and is trying to sell really nice cameras with a huge sensor disadvantage. The 16 MP Micro 4/3 sensor is a generation or so BEHIND the older X-Trans II (it's similar technology, but it's significantly smaller and uses a conventional Bayer filter). They have no state of the art X-Trans III coming to bail them out. Just like Fuji before last Friday, they're trying to sell  one (or closely related, similarly performing) sensor(s) across their line.
     
    Panasonic has a big gap in their line - some great video-focused cameras and some low-end cameras that don't seem to sell all that well. They have a similar sensor problem to Olympus, but they have their niche to retreat into. However, they also have a well-known video camera division. The logical move is perhaps to give the video cameras to the video camera division and get out of the low-end business...
     
    Pentax has been making some great cameras, but getting no traction in the market (outside of medium format). Unfortunately, the medium format business is dependent on the DSLRs to have a parts bin to pull from - if the DSLRs go, the medium format business will soon follow because they aren't set up for ultra-low volume like Phase One - they grab processors and AF sensors made in much larger numbers and stick them in custom shells with MF sensors. Without that parts bin, they can't keep it up (at least not with the price advantage).
     
    Leica has an M line with a cult following, but the rest of their products are divided between collector editions (most of which could omit the image sensor without risk of discovery) and several random lines with nice features, but radically overpriced and without enough lenses. They'll continue to exist, but will anyone actually use them to take pictures?
     
    Hasselblad may have destroyed themselves with stupidity (who came up with the idea of rebranding consumer Sony cameras - in one case, complete with $100 kit lens)... A Hasselblad with a $100 lens????
     
    Sigma will go back to making only lenses (what? they ever made anything else???), and Samsung will go back to phones, TVs and appliances....

    jlees got a reaction from New PK in Capture One 8   
    Bonjour,
    Just a piece of information concerning C1 v.8, which might be useful.
    in the release notes it is stipulated in the limitations section (p. 7) "The
    following functionalities are not supported for Fujifilm RAW files:
    processing/exporting to DNG, auto mask, healing with Repair Layers, focus mask, LCC." I use version 8.2.2, but the restrictions also figure in v. 8.3 release notes.
     
    My experience:
    I have not had to use export to DNG nor LCC, so I cannot comment.
    Auto mask gives you an error message if you try to use it.
    Healing with repair layers works fine for me (versions 8.1 to 8.2.2)
    Focus mask does not work correctly, or if it does it is inaccurate (I compared the zone with green focus point displayed in the camera)
     
    I have put in a support case so that we fuji users can benefit from all the functionalities of C1, but if some of you could do the same this might help. So it is a question of wait and see.
     
    Have a nice afternoon

    Fujinon (Native Lenses) (29 in total)
    Fujinon lens designation translation: R: aperture ring - - LM: linear motor - - OIS: optical image stabilization - - WR: weather resistant - - APD: apodization filter - - - - Super EBC: electron beam coating, also called electron beam physical vapor deposition
     
    Prime Lenses (15 lenses)
     
    XF 14mm F2.8 R product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,18 m - Magnification: 1:8.33 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 65 mm - Length: 58,4 mm - Weight: 235 g - Price (approx.): €880/$700
    Currently the widest prime in the native lens lineup. It’s said to be very sharp, but now that the XF 16mm F1.4 R WR is out, which is not much more expensive, two stops faster and weather resistant, it should be considered if the extra 2mm wide angle are really needed. The manual focus ring can be pulled back to engage manual focus mode, and reveals depth of field and distance scales. (Reviews at Fuji vs. Fuji, Fuji X-Files)
     
    XF 16mm F1.4 R WR product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,15 m - Magnification: 1:4.76 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 67 mm - Diameter: 73,4 mm - Length: 73 mm - Weight: 375 g - Price (approx.): €1000/$850
    Close-to-perfect wide angle lens, relatively high magnification due to short close focus distance, even weather resistant. Has the same manual focus mechanism as the XF 14mm F2.8 R. Only optical downside seems to be coma in the corners when wide open (bad for astrophotography). Quite big and expensive. (Reviews at Fstoppers, the digital trekker, Admiring Light)
     
    XF 18mm F2.0 R product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,18 m - Magnification: 1:7 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 52 mm - Diameter: 64,5 mm - Length: 40,6 mm - Weight: 116 g - Price (approx.): €410/$450
    One of the original three prime lenses from the beginning of the X-System. Very small and light. The varying rating of the optical quality throughout many reviews suggests copy-to-copy variation. The autofocus motor used in this lens is slightly noisy compared to the virtually silent linear motors of most other Fujinon lenses. (Reviews at The Phoblographer, light priority, MacLean Photographic)
     
    XF 23mm F2.0 R WR product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,22 m - Magnification: 1:7.7 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 43 mm - Diameter: 60 mm - Length: 51,9 mm - Weight: 180 g - Price (approx.): €499/$449
    Following the success of the XF 35mm F2.0 R WR, Fujifilm released this weather resistant medium-wide-angle prime lens, designed for rangefinder cameras. (Reviews at Jonas Rask (many images) and The Phoblographer, Comparison with the XF 23mm F1.4 R at IVAN Joshua Loh)

    Close Focus Distance: 0,28 m - Magnification: 1:10 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 72 mm - Length: 63 mm - Weight: 300 g - Price (approx.): €890/$750
    Excellent fast medium-wide-angle prime. Have not heard anything bad about it. Has the same manual focus mechanism as the XF 14mm F2.8 R. (Reviews at la RO QUE, kwerfeldein (german), Dan Bailey)
     
    XM-FL (24mm F8.0)
    Close Focus Distance: 1 m - Magnification: 1:41 - Aperture Blades: none (fixed) - Filter Thread: none - Diameter: 60 mm - Length: 21 mm - Weight: 32 g - Price (approx.): €/$85
    Fixed aperture, fixed focus body cap filter lens (soft filter & cross filter). Sharp from approximately 1 m to infinity. So far only available in Japan. (Reviews at ReViewed, DSLR Magazine (translation by Google), Infos at PetaPixel, Video from CP+ 2015 at News STC (youtube))

    Close Focus Distance: 0,34 m - Magnification: 1:10 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 39 mm - Diameter: 61,2 mm - Length: 23 mm - Weight: 78 g - Price (approx.): €350/$250
    The smallest and lightest X-Mount lens, apart from the bodycap filter lens. Optically not perfect, but still quite good when stopped down (most say from f/4 downwards). Has no aperture ring. Has a slightly noisy autofocus motor, in contrast to the virtually silent linear motors used in most other lenses. (Reviews at Tom Grill, Stephen Ip, photozone , LensTip)

    Weather resistant normal prime lens. Designed for rangefinder cameras. It's short and gets narrower to the front, so it does not stick into the viewfinder frame. (Reviews at IvanJoshuaLoh, lenstip and FujiRumors (by Rico Pfirstinger) )
     
    XF 35mm F1.4 R product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,28 m - Magnification: 1:5.88 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 52 mm - Diameter: 65 mm - Length: 54,9 mm - Weight: 187 g - Price (approx.): €590/$400
    One of the original three prime lenses from the beginning of the X-System. Very sharp in the center, mediocre corner sharpness wide open gets a lot better when stopped down from F/1.4 through F/8. Anyway, a good normal prime lens for the X-System. Only downside seemed to be the slow-ish autofocus, but that was addressed with a firmware upgrade.Has a slightly noisy autofocus motor, in contrast to the virtually silent linear motors used in most other lenses.

    The third lens in Fujifilm's lineup of compact, weather resistant prime lenses. Keeps up with the other two. (Reviews at Johannes Morsbach, fstoppers and caveira photography)

    Close Focus Distance: 0,7 m - Magnification: 1:11.11 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 73 mm - Length: 70 mm - Weight: 405 g - Price (approx.): €1000/$900
    The 85mm fullframe equivalent portrait prime in the lens lineup. As tested by Admiring Light, quite close to perfect. (Reviews at Admiring Light, Nathan Elson, Olaf Photoblog, Jonas Jacobsson)
     
    XF 56mm F1.2 R APD product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,7 m - Magnification: 1:11.11 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 73 mm - Length: 70 mm - Weight: 405 g - Price (approx.): €1300/$1200
    Same as above, but with built in apodization filter (radial, gradual neutral density filter that gets darker towards the corners) to smoothen out the bokeh at the expense of lens brightness. Instead of f/1.2, the maximum light transmissivity is equivalent to t/1.7. This effect is neutralized at f/5.6. A very unique portrait prime, but it does not support phase detection autofocus. (Comparison between APD and non-APD version at Fuji vs. Fuji)
     
    XF 60mm F2.4 R Makro product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,27 m - Magnification: 1:2 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 39 mm - Diameter: 64,1 mm - Length: 70,9 mm - Weight: 215 g - Price (approx.): €600/$450
    One of the original three prime lenses from the beginning of the X-System, and the first macro lens, although the maximum magnification is only 1:2. It is very sharp, but has really slow autofocus. Works well for portraits and stationary subjects like product photography or flowers. When approaching living subjects like bugs, the focal length, and thus the close focus distance, might be too short. Has a slightly noisy autofocus motor, like the XF 27mm F2.8 and the XF 35mm F1.4 R. (Reviews at ishootshows, daisuki photo, The Phoblographer)
     
    XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,25m - Magnification: 1:1 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 80 mm - Length: 130 mm - Weight: 750 g - Price (approx.): €1300/$1200
    The first native 1:1 macro lens for the X-system. This is an impressively sharp lens with a very well working optical stabilizer. The AF is quick, even in the macro range, and does not hunt much.
     
    XF 90mm F2.0 R LM WR product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,6 m - Magnification: 1:5 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 75 mm - Length: 105 mm - Weight: 540 g - Price (approx.): €900/$950

    The cheapest zoom lens for the X-Mount, intended as a standard zoom kit lens for the cheaper entry level bodies. No aperture ring, no switch for OIS. Quite small and light. Compared to the XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4.0 R LM OIS, it sacrifices about one stop of light through the whole focal length range, as well as 5mm of focal length at the long end, but gains important 2mm of wide angle.

    New version, bundled with the new Fujifilm X-A2. Better build quality, closer minimum focus distance.
     
    XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 OIS product page
    Close Focus Distance: 1,1 m - Magnification: 1:5 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 70 mm - Length: 111 mm - Weight: 375 g - Price (approx.): €250/$400
    This cheap telephoto zoom lens is a bit smaller and quite a bit lighter than the XF 55-200mm F/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS and has no aperture ring. But depending on the intended use, the slower aperture range needs to be taken into consideration.

    New version, bundled with the new Fujifilm X-A2. Better optical stabilization than the predecessor (3.5 stops instead of 3 stops)
     
    XF 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,45 m - Magnification: 1:3.7 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 67 mm - Diameter: 75,7 mm - Length: 97,8 mm - Weight: 490 g - Price (approx.): €800/$750
    Fuji's take on a weather resistant always-on travelzoom. Optically, it seems to be good for what it is, but the aperture range does not impress, which is of course a compromise for smaller size and lower weight. (Reviews at Dan Bailey, Admiring Light, The Phoblographer)
     
    XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 R LM OIS product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,3 m - Magnification: 1:6.67 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 65 mm - Length: 70,4 mm - Weight: 310 g - Price (approx.): €700/$600
    Is said to be the standard zoom "kit" lens for the X-Mount. My experience says, it's much better than the usual APS-C kit lens. Rather comparable to the f/4 L kit lenses canon sells with its full frame cameras. The aperture range is good, the size and weight is perfect, optical image stabilization works very well, and the lens is sharp. Really nothig to complain, especially since it comes at about 350-400€ when bought as a kit. (Reviews at Mark Schueler, photomadd, la RO QUE)
     
    XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS product page
    Close Focus Distance: 1,1 m - Magnification: 1:5.56 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 75 mm - Length: 118 mm - Weight: 580 g - Price (approx.): €670/$550
    This lens does not have the reach of the cheaper XC 50-230mm F/4.5-6.7 OIS, but with an aperture range from 3.5 to 4.8 it is a lot brighter, and therefore much more usable for the common telephoto applications (a.k.a. wildlife). Very compact when collapsed, and doubles as acceptable macro lens when combined with a +3 diopters achromat. This lens is very sharp wide open, even at the long end. (Reviews at Admiring Light, prophotonut (NSFW), Steeve Marcoux)
     
    XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR product page
    Close Focus Distance:1,75m - Magnification: 1:5.26 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 77 mm - Diameter: 95 mm - Length: 210 mm - Weight: 1375 g - Price (approx.): €1800/$1800
    An outstanding long telephoto zoom lens, offering 5 stops of optical image stabilization. It is sharper when focused close, but the sharpness at infinity focus can be regained when closing the aperture down to f/8. This lens is compatible with the 1.4x and 2x teleconverter. With the 2x teleconverter attached, all current camera models lose phase detection autofocus and have to use contrast detection autofocus.

    The widest lens in the Fujinon X-Mount lineup. Nothing bad to say about this one, too. (Reviews at Leigh Miller, Alik Griffin, photography life, photomadd)
     
    XF 16-55mm F2.8 R LM WR product page
    Close Focus Distance: 0,3 m - Magnification: 1:6.25 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 77 mm - Diameter: 83,3 mm - Length: 106 mm - Weight: 655 g - Price (approx.): €1100/$1100
    The pro-oriented standard zoom lens. Very good build and image quality, but also very big, heavy and expensive compared to the XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4.0 R LM OIS. The 2mm shorter focal length at the wide end, as well as the fixed aperture and the weather sealing might be the decisive factors for buying this lens instead of the XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4.0 R LM OIS, which in turn has optical image stabilization.

    The pro-oriented medium telezoom lens. The image quality of this lens is beyond question, but it's the biggest, heaviest and also most expensive lens apart from the new 100-400. It is compatible with the 1.4x and 2x teleconverters. Cameras retain phase detection autofocus with this lens and the 2x teleconverter attached. (Reviews at Dan Bailey, Jonas Rask)

    A lot more expensive than its direct competitor, the Samyang 12mm 2.0, which is even one full stop faster. The Samyang does not have autofocus, but at those short focal lengths, the depth of field is very large anyway, and Fujifilm cameras have focus peaking to aid manual focussing.

    Some say it's as good as the XF 35mm 1.4, some say it is not. I guess the decision is up to personal preference. (Reviews at Paultography Blog, Admiring Light, Brian Smith (Sony))

    The first macro lens for the X-Mount with a magnification of 1:1. When approaching living subjects like bugs, the focal length, and thus the close focus distance, might be too short. (Reviews at The Phoblographer, Tom Grill, Photo Madd, Passports & Lenses)

    The fastest lens for the Fuji X-Mount, as well as the fastest CSC-Lens overall. Very long close focus distance, big, heavy, extremely expensive. A lot of purple fringing, and not extremely sharp. In short, not worth the money, but definitely something special. (Reviews at FujiRumors part 1 part 2, Admiring Light, Steve Huff, Matt Granger (youtube))

    Big, heavy full frame DSLR lens that was adapted to the X-Mount, as many other within the Samyang Lineup. The Fuji X-System has more interesting alternatives, the XF 35mm F1.4 R, the XF 35mm F2.0 R WR and the Zeiss Touit 1.8/32, all of them smaller, lighter and offering autofocus.

    Seems to be a cheap, fast medium telephoto lens. Not as sharp as the XF 90mm F2.0 R LM WR wide open. Adapted full frame DSLR lens, but this has less impact in size and weight with longer focal lengths. (Reviews at cameralabs, Bob Atkins, pictures at Donald Falls' flickr photo stream)
     
    100mm F2.8 ED UMC Macro & 100mm T3.1 VDSLR ED UMC Macro product page

    True 1:1 macro lens for the X-Mount. Pictures shown so far look very promising, but with the XF 80mm 2.8 in the pipeline, it should be considered to wait for that one and have a fast telephoto lens with autofocus. Adapted full frame DSLR lens, but this has less impact in size and weight with longer focal lengths. (Review at ephotozine and pictures at Transcontinenta BV's flickr photo stream)
     
    135mm F2.0 ED UMC & 135mm T2.2 VDSLR ED UMC product page

    Huge full frame DSLR lens, adapted to the X-Mount. Excellent image quality. A smaller alternative with autofocus and weather sealing is the XF 90mm F2.0 R LM WR. The XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR, though not smaller or lighter, also adds autofocus, weathersealing, image stabilization and the flexibility of a zoom.

    It's a long telephoto, but it's also a reflex design. And the (fixed) aperture is a bit slow. Pictures don't look sharp and show a lot of CA. It has very special ring-shaped out of focus highlights which are inherent to the design of reflex lenses.

    Close Focus Distance: 0,15 m - Magnification: -- - Aperture Blades: 12 - Filter Thread: 49 mm - Diameter: 61,5 mm - Length: 55 mm - Weight: 246 g - Price (approx.): €--/$350
    Shows chromatic aberations and reduced sharpness in the corners, otherwise a good manual focus medium wide angle lens. Aperture ring without clicks.(Review at ephotozine, Simons Photography Blog)
     
    Mitakon Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95 II product page

    Hi All,
    FYI the x pro1 was given an excellent review in this year's April edition of UK magazine Black & White photography.
    The magazine is good too.

    jlees reacted to FX Admin in Disappointed with Fuji X-T1 Firmware 4.0? We have tipps for you...   
    It doesn’t work, no AF-improvement, it doesn’t focus between each shot in CL or CH, no faster AF in low light! This is some of the negative feedback we could read in the comments on FR and at the Fuji-X-Forum here.

    So what… is Firmware 4 just crap? Well, sometimes (often?) it’s just a matter to find the right settings. Patrick has made up an extended list of tipps:

    Enable Mechanical Shutter (MS) only. The camera won’t focus between each shot in CL or CH tracking, if ES only (electronic shutter) or MS+ES is enabled. Shooting fast-moving subjects with the ES doesn’t really make sense (rolling shutter effect).

    Turn Off Face Detection! If you have Face Detection put to ON, the camera will focus only with CDAF. The faster Phase Detection AF (PDAF) works only if Face Detection is disabled.

    High Performance Mode ON: many don’t even know that this features exists, like Calipedro here. It’s definitely worth to sacrifice a bit of battery life. Fuji should put this feature ON as standard.

    Keep you subject in the center: Phase detection pixels are located in the center of the sensor. Keep your subject in the center and PDAF will give you a faster AF.

    Use all Phase Detection Pixels with Zone AF 5×3: To take advantage of all the phase detection pixels, set you Zone AF box to 5×3 and place it in the center of the frame. Within this 5×3 box tracking will be very smooth… at least that’s my experience with my crazy dog.

    Increase the size of the AF-box: If you use Single Point AF, increase the size of the AF-box as much as possible.

    PRE-AF: The camera will continuously adjust focus, even if the shutter is not pressed (of half pressed). This can help to get the first shot in focus quicker. Downside: more battery drain.

    LENS FIRMWARE: make sure that your Fujinon lens is updated to the latest firmware version.
     
    Different Lens, Different results: According to the lens you use, the AF-improvement will be more or less (or not) visible. For example, I was very happy with the improvement of my 55-200, but I can’t really say if the 18-55 or 14 has become faster.

    The learning curve: Practice and get used to the new features. See what works best in which situation

    Let Rico study for you. Rumors has it, that Rico will update his X-T1 book and tell us how to make the best out of our new Fuji X-T1 FW 4. Once it’s out, all we have to do is to read his updated book.

    So, do you have more tips? Then share them below!

    Bonsoir Toutes et Tous,
     
    Further to Andreas' invitation here is a quick (?) introduction to myself.
     
    I'm Jeremy and live in Montpellier, France.
     
    My encounter with photography goes back to when I was 8 (56 years ago) and I discovered the alchemy and magic of the dark room, having been given an ilford sportie and a couple of rolls of 127 film.
     
    After a teen break where rock music and young ladies were of greater interest ;-) I went back to photography, bought my self compact 35 mm camera and set myself up a darkroom.
     
    In color I used slides.
     
    Like many of you I have used a fair amount of film and digital equipment over the years and have found that what is important is how you can get the maximum out it for the kind of photos you take.
     
    I came to Fuji as I 'played' with an x100 in a photo shop in London, when it came out in 2011 and it gave me a nice feeling. Last year I bought one second hand and it immediately relegated my heavy DSLR to the cupboard. I have since traded in the latter to acquire an xt1 with 14mm and 18-55mm, which basically covers the focal range of my old Pentax MX and lenses (24, 35 and 85mm), which I used for 30 years, prior to digital.
    This is all I need.
     
    As for what I like to take - landscapes, nature and things because they are there.
     
    I shoot raw and post process (in Capture One now, Aperture until June 2014) - echoes of the darkroom, I suppose. I convert most to black and white.
     
    The final word I do photography because I find it creative and I enjoy it.
     
    Sorry if I have been too long.
     
    Looking forward to sharing and exchanging experience and advice.
    Best regards

I have since traded in the latter to acquire an xt1 with 14mm and 18-55mm, which basically covers the focal range of my old Pentax MX and lenses (24, 35 and 85mm), which I used for 30 years, prior to digital.
    This is all I need.
     
    As for what I like to take - landscapes, nature and things because they are there.
     
    I shoot raw and post process (in Capture One now, Aperture until June 2014) - echoes of the darkroom, I suppose. I convert most to black and white.
     
    The final word I do photography because I find it creative and I enjoy it.
     
    Sorry if I have been too long.
     
    Looking forward to sharing and exchanging experience and advice.
    Best regards
