  1. Hi quincy! Congratulations for your great work, I'm using your data in these days to plan a new lens purchase If you didn't notice it yet, Lensbaby just released the Velvet 85mm f/1.8, maybe you can add it to the chart: http://www.fujirumors.com/lensbaby-launches-velvet-85mm-f1-8-fujifilm-x-mount/ Cheers
  2. I begin to believe this is not an issue of only some people...
  3. Yep, I had no UV or CPL filter mounted lens, it is the XF23mm F2 naked. However, I had a similar problem with B+W filter mounted on a Nikon DSLR, so apart from image quality, this is another reason I do not use UV filters anymore.
  4. I have to support this findings, because I have the X-T2 since two weeks and today I took a backlight outdoor shot with 23mm F2, you can see the full picture and the 100% crop region, too. I think the purple halo can be considered an inevitable consequence of the lens anti-glare coating (sometimes it happened with my old Nikon DLSR), but the very bad thing is its fabric-like texture which is very artificial and geometrical (X-Trans pattern?). Anyone else has some other information about this? Thanks
  5. I was searching for this, too, but it seems there is no way to remap the Q button...
  6. I installed OS X El Capitan on a freshly formatted Early-2011 MacBook Pro. I use Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC, I must admit that the overall system is a bit faster and responsive compared to Yosemite. I noticed the biggest improvements in using the local adjustment brush and switching to/from Loupe and Grid view. I use also VSCO Film, Nik Collection and Portrait Professional and all of them are working correctly without problems.
  7. Hi, does anyone ever bought or tried the MegaGear Case for X-T1 + 18-55m? http://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00KIN8ON4/ref=s9_wish_gw_d36_g23_i5?ie=UTF8&colid=1A3MQJKMF3SUS&coliid=I39SPRYBPTA0JB&pf_rd_m=A11IL2PNWYJU7H&pf_rd_s=desktop-1&pf_rd_r=176SDC6PCJANEWT5J12N&pf_rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=577208427&pf_rd_i=desktop I was thinking about that because it seems really minimal and robust for the X-T1 kit setup. I excluded half cases, because I like that the lens is fully protected within the camera body. The only concern could be the front lens cover that would be hanging when you want to keep the camera ready around your neck, but I think it could be removed during the shooting. Any opinions?
  8. CRAsmus, I agree with you, two Auto ISO would be not really useful...
  9. Sorry, I didn't get this... Can't the X-T10 be set in Aperture Priority with Auto-ISO and maximum shutter (i.e. 1/200 for street)?
  10. Ok, nice to see all those comments... it seems the 27mm is going to win this "battle" for street photography! GordonRussell, I was thinking about a street setup very similar to your first one, but with X-T1 instead of X-E2 for better control, grip and EVF. The 55-200mm and the 18-135mm would be eventually in the future to complement or replace the 18-55mm, which actually turns out to be a really amazing lens, I keep reading wonderful reviews about it.
  11. To close up and summarize this post, I also find this really interesting piece about X-T1 + 27mm for street photography: http://macfilos.com/photo/2014/10/21/fuji-x-t1-is-it-a-better-street-camera-than-the-x100t Thanks to everybody for your opinions!
  12. However, I'm with darknj, I still consider weight and portability more important for street photography, and for me it consists of posed/unposed pictures of strangers and situations in any urban environment, it's not the focal length that describes a photography genre.
  13. Thanks darknj, really interesting informations! Actually I think the best option for me is to keep the 18-55 kit and then buy the 27 for street and reportage. Eventually one day I will look into the 55-200 for long distances, but it's not quite my kind of photography. I also considered replacing the 18-55 with 18-135, but as you said, it's heavier and less sharp, I don't think the weather-sealing and the longer focal are really worth for me.
