Hi Everyone I'm Marcel, from Melbourne, Australia. My current Fuji is the x100 and I recently made a decision to replace my 5D3 with Fuji. So for now, I am preparing to sell my existing Canon gear while I research and test the Xpro2 and wait for the XT2. The x100 is a great camera but I am going to sell because my style of shooting requires faster focus and operation (I mostly shoot street/urban). It's always the case that when new tech comes along we become more aware of the gaps in the older tech. I recently tested the Xpro2 in a local store and I must say that I was really impressed with the SOOC JPGs. The depth, colour and look of the pictures is the best I have seen SOOC bar none. Once I sell my 5D3 (& accessories/lenses) I am considering the option to buy an Xpro2 and an XT2 as a second body, given I will benefit from lenses that both can use. Anyone already on Xpro2 and XT1? is this overkill or you find the two bodies give you different characteristics that you can apply to your creative process? I currently edit RAW in LR but if JPGs are this good I will be happy to use them where possible. Alternatively I was looking at x70 to replace my x100, then decide on either Xpro2 or XT2. Obviously, I am intending to wait for the release of XT2 before making a purchase. Dilemma is that I tested two x70's already (in store) and haven't had the greatest experiences with the results. First set of pics were suffering from blur - I couldn't understand why auto selected speeds sub 1/18 sec. I think the menu must have been played with but "auto" switch should consider that the user is going to be less savvy - therefore keep speed up to reduce/eliminate shake. I can't see any logical reason to have speeds of 1/13th sec, while keeping iso at 800 and f8. Second attempt (different store) I avoided auto and pulled a dozen test shots, majority in focus. Without any film simulation, I am not seeing the IQ that I would expect from this sensor. Response is better but IQ not better than my x100 (and that's an old camera now). I came across this forum in my hunt to see x70 reviews and shots. From what I see, the camera is capable of nice images but IQ is a little flat. Maybe because I have now seen the Xpro2 capability everything is flat. I look forward to reading your experiences, so thank you for making this forum/community so interesting. It's a valuable process in getting the most out of the great Fuji cameras. regards Marcel http://fotomarz.tumblr.com https://twitter.com/fotomarz Instagrams: foto_marz & foto_marz_street
Hello everybody. This is my first post on this forum after being a quiet reader for some time. I am a fairly new Fuji-X Shooter from Germany. Before Fuji i used a Canon 7D for a couple of years and a Sony a7II after that for about one year. I switched to Fuji with the new X-T2 mainly because of lens selection, colors from the x-trans sensor, manual buttons availability and price policy of Fuji. Recently i spent about 3 weeks on a roadtrip in Australia with my girlfriend. The first vacation where i put the X-T2 to real use. Besides taking a lot of photos, i really wanted to test out the video capabilities. So i shot a lot of 4K footage. You can find some of the photos on my 500px page https://500px.com/johannes-toenne/galleries/australia-november-2016 and i published my video on Vimeo I still have to get to know this camera more, but so far i am very impressed and happy with switching to Fuji. Let me know what you think and feel free to ask any questions if you have some. Johannes
