  1. you sure about that? maybe if a new camera comes out with drastically better AF-C performance and slide show free realtime EVF.
  2. only reason I can think of touching the existing industrial design of the X-E2 without adding new HW features is to do a cost reduction.
  3. Photos, iPhoto and Aperture all use the same underlying RAW engine API from Apple. They all "work". In fact, Iridient Developer uses the same API engine also. This is why Iridient is only supported on the Mac. However, the final results can vary greatly between Apple's own apps and Iridient . "OS X Yosemite provides system-level support for digital camera RAW formats from the following cameras." https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203088
  4. Iridient is based on the Apple OS X/iOS RAW Engine API. Just get Apple to port it to Windows and you are golden.
  5. "plans in progress, but can not confirm content" ===translation===>> " FUJIFILM CONFIRMS: New Firmware for Fuji X-E2 (at the end of this year)!" hilarious
  6. Darknj, Weight added to N1 kit: N1 CX 70-300: 560g total FX 70-300 + FT1: 745g + 150g = 895g total Length added to N1 kit: N1 CX 70-300: 108mm total FX 70-300 + FT1: 144mm + 42.5mm = 186.5mm total Also not sure about your 70-300 FX copy but mine get dramatically softer above 200mm and focus accuracy is hit and miss on the long end when shooting sports. In terms of IQ, I feel my Fuji X-T1 w/ XF 55-200 smokes my D600 w/ FX 70-300 at all equiv focal lengths. Especially on the long end. Although my N1 V2 makes my X-T1 w/ 4.0 FW look like a joke when it comes to shooting ac
  7. I think Fuji can succeed in the same way as they have done in APC-S. While both Canon and Nikon were doing half hearted support in APS-C glass compared to FF, Fuji went all in. The same is happening in 1". Nikon has always treated this market with half hearted support. If Fuji went all with quality interchangeable 1" fast glass with fast AF using the new Sony stacked sensors, I believe they would get a lot of new customers. I don't think there is much point competing on price basis with the likes of Sony and Panasonic on fixed lens 1" cameras.
  8. There are both pros and cons. How did you conclude to "slightly better with ANY" FX long range lens. Which better points are you talking about? Which worse points are you dismissing for ANY Long range FX range?Price, weight, iq, AF speed and accuracy, low light performance, depth of field, lens rendering, bokeh, weather resistance, VR performance, corner performance wide open, etc?
  9. There are no perfect cameras. Only ones which are best for YOUR specific tasks. I have 3 different systems which I use regularly; each one for different specific tasks. You will find opinion varies greatly based in what others are using their cameras for. I think YOU are on track to pick one that works best for YOU. Based on your use cases, I think the flaws of the older bodies is not all that important. Figure out if you can actually live with the fixed 23mm FL. That is key to your decision, IMHO. You can do that now. Put on a standard zoom and tape it to the equiv focal length and go
  10. I have many FD lens. Both FD and nFD. IMHO, The nFD 35/2 is the sharpest one that I have. I see no diff between my nFD and FD SSC 50/1.4. If I had to pick one it would be the nFD for its light weight. For X mount adapters, I am pleased with the Fontasy adapters due to fit. Just the right amount of tightness at the mount on both ends. The metabones seems a bit too tight. Haven't noticed any infinity focus issues.
  11. darknj, My XF 27 sticks out about 5mm beyond the MHG-XT (normal size). Might be a different story with the MHG-XT large. The N1 primarily gets used for outdoor sports. Best tool I have for that. Different horses for different courses. There is no perfect camera for everything. ;-)
  12. If you are coming from a DSLR like myself, then likely yes. Fuji makes a MHG for almost every X-Series interchangeable lens model they sell and they manage get an extra $100 out of me every time I buy a Fuji Body. @#$!$#!%!#$. I think they do it on purpose just to squeeze more money out of us after the initial sale. They make their bodies really small to compete with other "mirrorless" cameras and make it look much smaller than DSLRs. However, there are at least three issues with this: 1. The grip is too shallow if using larger lens. 2. The tripod screw on the body is not aligned wi
