  1. reading is hard I guess.
  2. traded all my faster equivalents for the f/2 versions. They're sharper at the same apertures and much quieter, faster and more lightweight. Losing a soft extra stop is no real loss. Made a profit too!
  3. also you might consider the 35mm f/2 instead - it has water resistance so will let you got out with confidence in variable weather conditions.
  4. lenstip are far more eloquent than me: http://www.lenstip.com/433.6-Lens_review-Fujifilm_Fujinon_XF_16-55_mm_f_2.8_R_LM_WR_Distortion.html
  5. no rectilinear distortion? it barrel distorts quite significantly in raw. your camera is correcting it.

  7. If you're photographing fast moving subjects you'll get better results from learning to do zone focusing regardless of lens on fuji.
  8. Besides the exasperating XF60mm lens, I've been perfectly happy with every combination of Fuji kit I've had, but I don't bother with the new aids, I doubt if they'll ever be able to read my mind quicker than I can operate the manual controls. It's really just a case of sticking with one body and minimal lenses until operation of the device is second nature. New bodies really just mean quicker startup, recycling and improved sensor limits.
  9. But this is literally how every point and shoot camera has done it for years and years, it's hardly a 'change' thing.
  10. I prefer to have 1 or 2 batteries charging while I'm out shooting with another pair, personally. I can't take the downtime of having to tether the camera to a charger.
  11. 1. There are much better options for 4k video than either camera 2. This is just a form factor thing surely? The X-Pro/X100 cameras are every inch designed to look vintage 3. First thing anyone who buys a camera that charges is to buy an external charger All nice to haves but not showstoppers by most measures.
  12. The camera has OIS but I'm not sure it should behave like you're describing it.
  13. There's certainly no need to duplicate the wider end of the 10-24
  14. The XC lens is available so cheap in a white box that you might as well buy it to see if it's good enough for you, you lose next to nothing if you decide to sell it on.
  15. That bokeh is giving me a seizure lol
  16. I would buy the XC50-230 and hire the 100-400.
  17. just put the 55-200 on f/4.8 and enjoy your constant aperture f/4.8 zoom.
  18. I think Adobe need some financial encouragement to support X-Trans properly. Capture One doesn't have any of these issues and also has a monthly subscription model, maybe that will help.
  19. The EV dial only works when shutter speed is set to A on the X-Pro1. To control exposure with a fixed shutter speed requires setting iso manually, personally I have ISO assigned to the Fn button to do this. But yeah, this feature was added in firmware 4.0 to the X-E2 etc.
  20. why would you buy an xt-1 and seldom use it? no sympathy
