    X-Pro1, X-T1.
  • Lens List
    Fuji Primes, 14mm f2.8, 18mm f2, 23mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4, 60mm f2.4 90mm f2.
    Fuji zooms, 18-55mm OIS, 55-200mm OIS.
    Legacy glass, Minolta 24mm f2.8, Minolta 50mm f2, Minolta 135mm f2.8. Minolta Rokkor 58mm f1.4.
  1. Why not a conventional long lens. I use a Canon FD 300mm F4L + 1.4X & 2.0X TCs. Below, 300mm f4L with X1.4 TC + monopod. Check the full size.
  2. Besides it being the answer to your prayers enabling, you to process DNGs in PS CS5 ACR (same as me but I also have LR6), but it handles the tricky demosaicing with which Adobe has problems. Below are my base settings for IXT if it is a help as a starting point. Sharpen with Nik sharpener for best results (IMO) - not LR or PS sharpening. Vic
  3. Scandalous - that's more than the XT2. No way would I buy one until prices have dropped. Surely you can live without an X100F when you have other cameras.
  4. Mine too and sometimes I wish I had an ordinary XE1 as a second body to my XT2. XE1 is much lighter than XP1 when it's being used as a backup.
  5. Thanks Artuk. Unfortunately XT2 file sizes have to be greatly reduced to post. Goodness knows how you manage with 42MP.
  6. Thank you very much for this useful analysis Jiri. I shall revisit your page when It's time for me to order a second spare and new units for XP1/XE1. As it is, I have a spare original on order but as a non video shooter I don't have the battery grip because I don't want the extra unnecessary size and weight.
  7. As this is an XT2 and LR thread I thought I'd add this Damien Lovegrove link but it's also germane to XP2, XT20. https://www.prophotonut.com/2016/02/21/acros-film-simulation-with-the-fuji-x-pro2/

  10. I don't see how Fuji would be losing by not supplying you with yet another free charger. I agree with Kiwi, I think you are expecting far too much after this time. The only way you can hurt Fuji is to not buy their cameras/lenses (and they won't notice it for a second) and that will be cutting off your nose to spite your face.
  11. I occasionally use my XP1 with both XF zooms but it is much more enjoyable to use with primes - especially for street style. I'm about to sell my 18-55mm to offset the cost of my recently purchased 16-55 f2.8.R No doubt I shall miss the smaller zoom and its OIS at some stage but I only used OIS for very low light handheld shots at the wide end and even then one is dependent on there being no movement within the scene where a fast prime is needed so I'll use my primes and accept that no lens - or even two or three lenses and tripod - can cope with low light, movement and good DoF without the use of flash and loss of ambience.
  12. Any E shutter can show barring at certain shutter speeds depending on the type of artificial lighting.
  13. Handy to keep in mind for when it happens to me - which it surely will.
  14. One of the reasons not to use in-camera auto DR. I want to know what ISO I'm using rather than have it set so as to allow for DR. It can also play havoc with shutter speeds hitting the input floor or ceiling of auto ISO when it wouldn't do without DR.
