  1. Fuji 200mm will be f2

    It sounds spectacular. I love my 90 and my 50-140, but if the 200 f2 comes out with WR and OIS, wow I'm in. If it takes the 1.4TC, even better.

  7. I have the X100F with the TCL attached and I have found the ONA Bowery to be the perfect size.
  8. Camera straps - What do you use?

    I have found my strap on x100f from deadcameras is amazing. Made in Portugal, very well made.
  9. Owl caught by 50-140

    Morepork. We have a resident pair that follow us around
  10. Owl caught by 50-140

    X-T2, 50-140 with 1.4 TC. This breed of owl is rarely seen at night let alone during the day. Over the moon to get it. The pair are residents on our farm. This is the reason I got the 1.4 TC
  11. Barn Owl

    X-T2, 50-140, 1.4 TC this is the reason I purchased the 1.4TC. For me ( and that's all that matters ?) this shot was possible because of it.
  12. 23 or 56??

    Have both, love both. I would definitely choose the 23mm. There is something magical about that lens. I've just won a national photo comp with it. The 56 is THE lens for dof. But I found that it takes time to get that right shot, whereas the 23mm just grabs the subject in any condition. I went overseas earlier this year and took my 16 instead of the 23. That's a mistake I'll never repeat again. 23, you won't regret it.
  13. Bee on rata

    X-T2, 50-140, 1.4 TC
  14. $300 of the 90 is very impressive. I see one retailer offering it for $774 AU with cash back. That is a good price.
  15. stolen photo...nearly speechless

    It's getting worse not better. The attitude is if it's out there - grab it, be it an image,or music etc. it must be getting worse as iStock are collectively taking on Google. The problem is that google images went hi definition in 2013 making stealing images easy. I read though one case where a photographer had his image of Waikiki stolen by a travel agency who put his image on the front of their brochures. He was from Australia and it was a US travel company. He said he would have to pay $25K to sue the company who could drag if out ( read : not worth it ). I guess watermark is the way to go, but it does detract from the image. My advice is try and put it out there against the non profit. They're getting money from honourable donators who expect the charity to have principles. Hit them where it hurts!
