  1. I think you will enjoy the simplicity and minimal gear, you may even forgo the telephoto lens adapter and utilize the in-camera 'telephoto' cropping feature, if you're already shooting JPG anyways. Do you carry the X-Pro2 with only the 23mm f/2 very often? This is my go-to focal length, I found myself choosing my X100T over my X-T1 and 23mm lens almost every time. Now that I have an X-T2 though, my X100T is feeling sluggish by comparison in AF performance and overall responsiveness. The X100F is a real temptation.
  2. Yup, easy firmware update, smooth sailing as always. All settings and customizations just as I left them. The update does take a few minutes, be patient. I love having two separate focal point settings for horizontal and vertical shots! The smaller AF point is also a nice touch, it should really help with close up focusing accuracy. I also tested out the new ISO command dial setting, I'm glad they added the option, though I might not use it myself.
  3. I'm going to update my two X-T2's later today, I'll report back. I anticipate smooth sailing.
  4. I would have figured the X-T2's buffer could handle at least one set, but I wonder if you're using an SD card with too slow of a write speed? Have you formatted the SD card in camera?
  5. I love this, great mood.
  6. That's unfortunate news Fujifilm often has great regional service and may even honor the warranty even outside of the US. Contact Fujifilm Brazil and inquire about repair options: http://www.fujifilm.com/about/office/latin_america/brazil/
  7. I bet it was just some gunk, that pub being prime suspect!
  8. Yeah, it adjusts the EXIF info and the projected frame lines in the OVF, but I bet you only use the EVF just like me
  9. Thanks for confirming @Khechog! One thing I recently learned about the second generation teleconverter and wide angle adaptors is that they have embedded magnets that tell the new X100F when each lens is attached, so the camera automatically changes the frame lines and exif info now. Optically they are the same, it's just a convenience to no longer have to set it in the menu.
  10. You are correct, the X-T1 uses the previous generation 16 megapixel X-Trans II sensor while the X-T20 uses the new 24 megapixel X-Trans III sensor. Beyond the sensor, the camera processor and AF system is next generation as well, providing faster auto focus and over all system responsiveness.
  11. I think you would prefer the latest generation AF system from the X-T20. The X-T1 is no slouch, but advancements have been made. How often do you shoot a wedding? What DSLR are you looking to replace?
  12. Very eye catching!
  13. An f/4 zoom would be an interesting build for Fujifilm. I am still blown away by the 'kit' 18-55mm f/2.8-4 OIS zoom, I feel more inclined to carry that than the f/2.8 beast, though it has its limitations in low light event coverage. The size disparity between them is unreal, I wish Fuji had found a better middle ground for the 2.8 zoom.
  14. Incredible landscape, I've never seen anything quite like it before.
  15. I'm not aware of any changes in production or a revised design. OIS would be nice, but with even the original primes still being made, a revised design seems a long ways away. It has become my least used and least inspiring lens. It's 'fine' I guess but I hope I never actually need it
