  1. I've read a lot of articles about the importance of turning off OIS when using a tripod, and I've always been a bit skeptical about this. So I thought I'd carry out some tests, and I'd like to share the results. In summary, I can see no significant difference between having OIS on or off, and I am not going to worry any more about turning it off when I'm using a tripod. Another urban myth exploded, though of course that's just for me - your experience may be different. You can see the annotated images here if you are interested: https://ianpiper.smugmug.com/Test-images/OIS-tests/ Method and materials (yes, I was once a practicing research scientist) I used a Fuji X-T1, firmware v4, with a Fuji 18-55mm XF lens, firmware v3.12. The tripod was a Gitzo Mountaineer Basalt model with a Manfrotto Junior geared head, adapted to have an Arca plate. Each picture was taken using auto-focus on the centre of the image. I used the self-timer to minimise movement. I took two sets of images; one with OIS on and the other with it off. For each set, I took images at f8 and f11 (the sweet spot for this lens, in common with most Fuji lenses in my experience) at 18mm, 23mm, 35mm and 55mm.
  2. Hi everyone. Being a street photographer I'd like being able to move freely and to capture the 'decisive moment' also in the less favourable conditions. Two days ago I've been to a Fuji presentation and I asked to the Fuji guy if there is a plan for a XF23mmF1.8 R OIS WR I really like this focal length and having a lens able to face a urban humid night using exposures like 1/10 without adding camera shakes is something I'd really love. Yes, 1.4 will be better for sure but I'd like also a smaller and lighter lens and I'm ready to trade a little of luminosity for a more compact design. Using an X-T1 having a WR lens will give me the freedom to focus on the picture instead of worrying about the equipment. The Fuji guy told me this is not a lens that they are thinking about since F1.4 is more than enough to face every challenge in street photography. It looks no one is doing such a lens, so probably I am wrong. Since I continue to like the idea of having such a lens, what am I missing? Mauro, Ravenna, Italy
