I've just bought the Fuji XF 100-400mm lens to go on my Fuji X-T1. Yesterday I tried it out for the first time, and straight away I have a problem, the image that I see in the EVF is great but when I take a photo and view it, the photo is very dark even though I'm shooting in daylight. I have already updated the firmware for the lens and my X-T1 has the latest firmware as well. The exposure dial is set to '0' so it's not that. Has anyone got a suggestion as to what could be causing this? I have the ISO set to 'A', shutter set to 1000. The lens is set to auto aperture, I've also tried manual aperture but got the same result.
I'm fairly new to Fuji so it's probably some simple fix that I'm missing.
I just switched from Nikon to Fuji about two months ago! I sold my Nikon D750, D5200 and lenses and bought the X-T1, X-E1 (backup body) and the X-100 as a travel camera. I also got the 56mm 1.2 R, the 23mm 1.4 and the Rokinon 10mm 2.8. I've done one wedding so far and several real estate jobs and I am in love with Fuji! Their lens selection is superb and their primes are to drool over. Knowing what I could get from their lenses was the deciding factor in my decision to switch. I'm in love with the X-T1. It has spoiled me for DSLR's. I never want to go back. There is something about shooting with Fuji's that inspires and is enjoyable. Fuji camera's also have some much class and style. In my opinion, the graphite silver X-T1 is the best looking digital camera on the market, followed very closely by the X100 series.
I love photography and Fuji's enhance that love. They inspire creativity. I'm so happy to have the Fuji community to be able to connect with!

Please could someone - preferably a wedding photographer give me their step by step workflow for processing Raws from Xt-1 ? - I didn't fully realise that they aren't best converted in LR so the thought of taking them via another converter seems like alot of extra work! - I have swapped from Canon for the advantages fuji offer in noise at higher iso so quality and sharpness is my primary concern. If I have to use another converter then ok but which one? And do I still use LR for tweaking exposure /colour etc - there are a lot of conflicting opinions out there!
Also another prob is I have a windows 10 laptop and also an imac running yosemite so I do need some consistency between the two. Thankyou
my name is René van der Voorden, and I´m a professional concert photographer. I love shooting concert since about 35 years.
Last year I sold my 20.000 € Nikon equipment with Nikon D3s and a lot of expensive glasses. It was not an easy step, but at least I´ve done it.
From last year on the Fujifilm X-T1 is my new tool for this work. The High-ISO performance on the D3S is still a little bit better, but there are more advantages for me with the X-T1.
The most important advantages for me:
1. Mirrorless. I see the result before I shoot. I can see everything through the amazing Viewfinder. Not necessary to take your eye from the Viewfinder to playback taken photos.
2. Noiseless. Some concerts are very quit (Classic, Musical, Jazz). I hate my Nikon D3S gun in this belongings and love my new quit tool. Sometimes it was not possible to shoot with Nikon because of the shutter-mirror-noise.
3. High ISO performance. Is good, but could be 2-3 stops better. On most concerts the light situation is very very bad. That could be improved. Because of my style of developing my photos with hard contrasts and pushing the shadows (and sometimes blacks), high ISO performance is even more important.
4. Tilting LCD is very handy for shoots from the FOH with audience in front. With my Nikon I was not able to compose a over-me-head shoot. A shame, that the X-Pro2 doesn´t have this handy feature,
5. Understatement. You´ll not be noticed as a professional photographer. I like that.
6. Size. No more words necessary.
7. Weight. My Nikon stuff was much to heavy to carry over long distances.
8. Feel. The X-T1 feels perfect. I love to have those manual dials to have quick access on the most important settings.
9. Viewfinder. The High-Res and magnification and the very small lag time is perfect for my work.
10. AF is quick enough. The accuracy is better than on my Nikon D3S.
11. Less rejects because of above mentioned. I can now concentrate on finding the perfect situation for my shoots.
@Fujifilm: I would be very interested in testing (and giving feedback) the upcoming X-T2 for concert photography purposes. Please do not hesitate to contact me :-)
As far as I know you can’t change this behaviour with an update. Use an editing software to combine the files. Perhaps you can merge them on your computer using a shell command, too (works sometimes, depending on the operating system and the underlying disc‘s format).
