  1. Well, X-Pro1 has live view. Why not having live view with X-Pro 2?
  2. Fuji lenses (I mean primes) are tiny compared to DSLR primes with the same F stops. I won't say for everyone else, but when I actually saw the Fujinon 35 mil F/1.4 with my own eyes I was shocked about how small it was. For three month I took my X-Pro1 with all three native primes with me wherever I went. And this little bag was three times smaller and like four times lighter than my photo-backpack with 5Dm2 and 28/1.8+50/1.4+85/1.8. So the size of X lenses is great for me, I don't need them to be smaller. ZEISS and Leica MF lenses are great, but the size of the ZEISS Otus 55mm/1.4 is extreme, and the cost of it and any Leica lens is just from another world. Can Fuji make MF lenses as good as Leica? I think they can. But will these lenses sell well? I think they will not.
  3. Well, who need MF lenses now? Even Leica made new T and SL cameras, both use AF lenses.
  4. The whole point of buying X-Pro1 for me was hybrid OVF, and only then the X-Trans sensor. So no, I won't buy X-Pro 2 without OVF.
  5. Your photos are so wonderfull, thanks for sharing.
  6. Very nice pictures, Jonas. But I still think that 1.4 is better, because, well, it is 1.4 and not 2.0.
  7. If you haven't got 35/1.4 - start saving. If you do - do not bother.
  8. It is hard to believe that 35/2 will be cheaper than 35/1.4, because 35/1.4 is one of the cheapest X mount lenses anyway, and because 35/2 is going to be WR and almost certainly will acquire better (newer generation) AF motor.
  9. Many people, who own a DSLR with APS-C or DX sensor bought 50mm f/1.8 or F/1.4 as the portrait lens. This is common issue. And I personally think that 50mm on APS-C or DX is a great focal length, I used to shoot with 30D and 40D and with 50 F/1.4 for a couple of years, and I was happy with what I got.
  10. Honestly I can't understand, why the first question should be "how much?". It is clear, that these kind of body can't cost less than 7000-8000$. So it is obvious that there is a small niche of people who could actually afford one. For them, maybe, it is more logical to ask "Will it be the interchangable of fixed lens camera?".
  11. This is a very good lens indeed. Loved it with a film SLR.
  12. Well, there is a new manual lens, avaliable for Nikon and Canon mounts, which is 50mm F/1.2. It is called Zenitar 50 f/1.2 and is designed for APS-C and DX sensors. It is designed in 2014 and manufactured from 2015 in Russia, and costs like 370$. Full metal construction. Here you can watch it on Nikon DSLR (it is in Russian, but you at least can see how it looks) And here is the small overview of prototype of this lens in english: http://www.4photos.de/test/Zenitar_50mm_f1.2.html Here is a bokeh sample from the lens in production:
  13. This particular test seem like misfocused Zeiss to me.
  14. Autofocus is not the argument any more?
