dear X-friends .. To be honest I believe xt2 is made for coverting sport photography as well as videography. Although 24 mp sensor is better that 16 but not much different on result if you know how to set your camera, high quality double A2 size or even lorger print is possible with xt1. On the other hand since fuji on xt1 presenting features of photography and videography together with some new ones like touchscreen after x70 of course, seems xt1 after years corrections and developed system, personally i cannot trust xt2 atleast for 6 to 12 months, to upgrade all possible bugs and confusions. what do you think?

ArtPage, it sounds very much like that you don't trust Fuji to offer continuos support to the X-T2, going by Fuji's past history with their products, I think you are mistaken. In fact past history of Fuji support would suggest that they will indeed support the X-T2, there is no reasonable reason to not purchase an X-T2 if you will want to buy one in the future!

 

I still suspect that there is not a camera made that is without some teething troubles, nowadays that is not so much of a problem as the majority can be solved with a firmware update!

thank you Mike for your comment. actually i do support xt2 (that is why i am opening this topic discussion here!) to talk about professional reasons, features, techniques, etc not only the marketing and sales issues.

However, as you said according the history of fujifilm, everything would be alright through updating firmware's versions, since every product is the result of the previous one with years and years trails and errors.

on the other hand, i believe if somebody is not completely familiar to xt1, buying xt2 will be confusing for beginning X photography. it means xt1 atleast is the best entry for professional Photography rather than xt2 for the first step.

also if somebody doesn't need to photograph for sport (and its related required features like variations of AF-C and Focus points group, etc.) i don't think needs to shift from xt1 to xt2 immediately (it means still i am supporting good enough xt1 for professional Photography with holy triangle lenses of 10-24, 16-55, 50-140). 

it is just about the right time-plan of buying xt2.

what do you think?

ArtPage, I'm going to disagree, why is starting with a 2 any more complicated than starting with a 1, don't think it would be!

 

I started with a 1 because the 2 wasn't around, and came to like the 1 very much, but I am still hankering for the 2, hopefully only until Thursday, by starting my Fuji system months ago I properly have enough glass with which to adorn a 2(no doubt GAS will kick in soonish) oh dear.

 

For somebody starting out there is no point in buying a 1 any longer why not go directly to a 2! OK it will take a month or two for the supplies of X-T2s to sort themselves out, but my advice is go straight for the 2!

 

Regards

 

Mike

 

PS: My lens list is as follows most financed by PXing my Nikon gear: 10-24, 18-55, 18-135, 50-140, 60 + 56!

    • I don’t have it as I went for the literal bag of primes (16, 23, 35 & 50) but the XF 16-55 f2.8 is well regarded as a “bagful of primes”. 16mm is a 24mm equivalent on the wide end and 55mm is close to an 85mm equivalent. F2.8 gives a good level subject separation/bokeh. Not small or light but plenty of folks sing it’s praises. Dave
    • Not really, unless you want to limit yourself a lot on the image quality. For portraits I would recommend at least an 85mm F/1.4 lens. For landscape photography it depends on whether you want to make panoramas and then the question is which focal length or image effect you want to achieve. There is a lack of more precise information on your part.
    • Does the aperture ring have whole, half or a third gradations?
    • Hi When I was researching impressions of the new Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R LM WR and how it pairs with different bodies I found very little info and/or images of the lens together with an X-E4 body. I therefore figured I should make a post about it so other people researching the same thing can find these picture and info. I have attached some pictures showcasing the lens on my X-E4 body. One very interesting/sad thing to note is that if the aperture ring is left at the 1.4 mark the auto lock knob/button will actually touch the flat surface on which the camera is placed which is not ideal. This is however not an issue when having the lens hood mounted, if a Peak Design style screw mount is attached or if moving the aperture ring to the 2.0 mark. All these pictures are taken with my phone so they are not really of stellar quality but are probably useful anyway  My overall impression of the lens thus far is really good, it produces very sharp images even fully open. It balances quite well with the X-E4; when actually shooting it feels really good but when carrying it around it is a bit front heavy. I found that there is a dramatic change in carrying comfort if the strap is mounted on the body in a diagonal fashion so to speak, i.e. with one anchor at either side of the body and one at the bottom screw mount. Using this configuration really offsets the balance point when carrying your camera diagonally, sling style.   Also, this is my first post at the forum so ... Hi all
