  1. Some great shots. Feel they could have been improved upon with maybe the optional Canon 1Dx2, a carbon tripod and selection of top end L class glass :-D (Or the Nikon equivalent). Seriously though, you comfortably prove the point as to why you only need something like a X-100T for trips like that. Not all shots are those that would appeal to me - but they demonstrate the ability of the camera and its user ;-)
  2. Blimey - this is well beyond what I do with any camera. The pictures always seem to achieve what I want within the confines of a 23mm lens. I hope the tests provide results you're happy with. The Fuji glass has always been the best I've ever used, including a range of Canon L stuff and Macro lenses.
  3. simple answer... Do you want to take photos now? Or is the activity of taking photos something you are thinking about? The X100T is out now. It is a proven camera - you can carry it around in your pocket pretty much all of the time and it takes great pictures. If you do want to wait of the latest model - pre-order and X-Pro 2 with a 23mm f1.4 NOW and you can wait until it is available to deliver :-)
  4. You point is valid to a degree. Just because I say "street photographers want redundancy as well" - I suppose for me, that is generally how i refer to the way I use my camera. truth be told, I enjoy cycling (love Suffolk and north Essex) and always carry a camera with me, because some on the views are stunning. On such trips I also carry a very compact tripod with cable release and a Lee Filter kit for those moments you want to record or images you want to create. With such trips - it would be nice to have that redundancy, because often the views will not repeat themselves in a hurry, and having that extra card covers the various issues that can go awry whilst out cycling. Through all my digital photography, the only 2 things I've never had the pleasure of a decent A/F and dual memory card for redundancy. I have had a couple of card failures, hence my desire, and I've always used either Canon 5D2's (crap A/F) or the X-Pro 1 (A/F good under certain conditions). The X100T has certainly given me what I desire (or at least a huge improvement) with A/F - so it only leaves me to wish for a dual memory card slot. As people come to appreciate the importance of digital dat, I suspect many more will also desire dal memory card facilities as well. Easier than trying to hook up to cloud data via a smart phone - for now.
  5. Given the X-Pro 2 has dual card facilities - I would also like that on the X100 whatever... At nearly £900, I think that's a fair request! Street photographers want to make sure they have redundancy as well!
  6. it didn't on the old SLR style 35 mm bodies - why should it now?
  7. i believe it has an increased area covered by focus points - hence the increased number of focus points... Haven't done an in depth look yet, but it certainly has had some serious under the bonnet updates - whilst trying to remain true to the original...
  8. So we finally have a definite date for the release of the X-Pro 2 and already people are condemning it. I'll bet after all this it's gonna be nothing more than a bloody camera with video facilities. No facility to beam you across the world. No AI that tells you how to now p off a woman. No ability to foretell the future to within 5 seconds of the designated time. Just a bloody camera, you know, one of those things that takes pictures and the odd video clip! I mean - sh*t... What were Fuji thinking about?
  9. The simple answer is "what do you want your camera for?" I am currently using an X 100T and the reason for that is simple... I want something I can carry around in my pocket and use under almost any condition. It's not perfect, but it's doing a pretty good job. It saves me having to own an carry around a multiple of bodies and lenses. I'm not saying I will not own a camera with interchangeable lenses again - but I wold do so along WITH my X 100T or successor and not instead of.
  10. I think you should be well pleased with them - especially the 2nd and 3rd images gained from 'panning'. Just proves the old adage - it's not the camera that makes a great shot, it's the person using it that does!
  11. I think this will definitely suit me for the summer time when I look at adding a second camera to my kit. The X-100T is most definitely a go every where camera with me - but sometimes I just want a little bit extra. Of course it will also need a lens but in this case will probably go for a zoom. So waiting will give me time to see that it will fulfil my needs and also work out which lens combination I need to go with it.
  12. Back to CaNikon it is then! I don't have a Fuji X for the buttons on the back. I have it so I can select aperture via the lens barrel just like I did in the good old days of film. The days when you had three separate dials for aperture, shutter speed and ASA/ISO. But then, you didn't change ASA/ISO from shot to shot - only from roll of film to roll of film. And focusing was done manually - ahh them's were the days :-) Of course, now I'm spoiled with 47 AF points I can select at the touch of a button if I can't be bothered with manual focusing. TBH - you own a Fuji X because you do not enjoy working with the CaNikon way of doing things... So I wish you well with your new brand of kit - expect your pictures will be of the same quality they are now - just with a different name on the front of the camera!
  13. could some one start a countdown clock to the almost certain official announcement of an almost certain to appear X-Pro 2?
  14. Looking at those specs as shown by Magnum - it seems that the 24mp has come at a cost. But then, assuming those leaked specs are true- are they ALL of the specs? There is much to like about that camera going by those specs alone and I could easily see an enormous take up of such a body. However, I'm still learning how ot master the X100T so it will be at least Xmas 2016 before I consider such a purchase...
  15. So we have the alleged pictures from an X-Pro2 taken during the Paris attrocities - why no further discussion on here about this mythical camera? Or have those pictures been debunked as fake?
