I am a long time admirer of the Fuji X system, but have yet to buy a digital camera. I typically rent a system when needed and make do with my existing film cameras.

I now have a requirement for a good, weather resistant, digital system and projected rental costs are now more expensive than buying. I need to photograph items similar in detail and structure to coins, as close to 1.1 as possible and often in austere environments.

I love the XT-2 from the limited exposure I have had to it and clearly the 80mm macro seems ideal. I am struggling to find a good ring flash which will be rugged and permit me to adjust intensity between each side.

Does anyone have a suggestion please? Thanks, Jon

Never mind, I was issued a Canon 5DS, which is a pain, because I have a load of Nikon Glass :-D
