  1. Hi there, I'm off to South Africa in April and will be going on a private tours. I hear with private tours that vehicles can get a lot closer to animals. So, I'm pretty sure I will purchase an XF50-140 F2.8 with either a 1.4x or 2x teleconverter to use with my X-T1. Besides this, I'm thinking of buying an X-Pro2 with either the 16-55 F2.8 or a 100-400 F4.5-5.6. I'm not sure which lens to buy. I'm not too fussed with bird photography, so I just wonder how much I really need a 100-400 in a private drive? From my research, dpreview's article here mentioned that just a 70-200 would suffice -https://www.dpreview.com/articles/8065882473/gearing-up-for-an-african-safari Just wondering if anyone has some other views or experience with a private drive? Also, with bean bags and the completely open vehicles - can I even use one, or should I consider a monopod? Thanks. Carl
  2. Hello!I mistakenly bought a 16-55 on Aug 15 and missed the 7 day return window. Used it once outdoors and realized that I'd rather stick to my primes. MINT condition, no damage, excellently taken care of.Asking $975 shipped. It's pretty much new. In fact....it really kinda is! Thanks for looking!
  3. Hello,I am selling my Fujifilm 16-55mm f/2.8 lens, and it is in beautiful condition. The glass is flawless, and cosmetically the lens looks very much like new with little to no signs of use as you can see in my photos. All functions are working properly. There are some minor rub marks on the plastic lens hood and on the front lens cap. This is a USA version lens. I do not have the box, but the lens will include the original lens hood and lens caps, and the instruction booklets and paperwork. I really like everything about this lens except for its size and weight, so I am going back to a smaller lens. Asking $885 which includes fast and free shipping in the USA by USPS priority or FedEx ground. Paypal, money order, or cashier check are fine for payment. I am new to this site, but have 100% positive feedback on another Fuji forum under the same username, as well as on other well known sites. I am located in SE Wisconsin, USA. Please let me know if I can help with any questions.~Thank you and Happy Holidays D Lafon
  4. BRAND NEW Fujinon XF18-55mmF2.8-4 R LM OIS Lens. $450 Still packed in original packaging, can supply copy of invoice (09/19/16) from Cameta Camera in NY for warranty purposes. This is a kit lens that was purchased with my XT-2, so will be shipped in plain black Fuji packaging (see photos). Located near New Orleans, LA for local pickup, or can ship at buyer's expense (Priority 2-3 day delivery is less than $10). ps. Hope it's acceptable to use the stock photo, did not want to unpack for photos.
  5. 18-55 mm One year old, barely used lens for sale, comes with front and rear caps, hood, punch, original box and everything that comes with it. . Sold the xpro1 I had and am switching to Nikon.
  6. So after taking delivery of the Samyang 12mm on Sunday I went out to give it a try. So far I'm extremely impressed, it took a little getting used to manually focusing and finally setting the camera to 18mm. It it tac sharp, even wide open and just gets better as you stop down, f:8 or f:11 are it's sweet spots from my initial tests. Couple test pictures.
  7. So far I have been keeping my X lenses in the plastic bag they came in, together with the absorbent bag, and then putting all this in the soft bag provided with the lens. However, yesterday, while I was showing my kit to a colleague who is a semi-pro photographer (with 4 bodies and occasional commissions), he told me that i should NOT keep the lenses in the plastic bags, due to possible issues with static. On reflection, common sense would suggest that any bags used by Fuji for their lenses would be designed to be anti-static. (I do appreciate that my current system takes longer since I need to unwrap etc, but then I don't really do much lens changing in the field and keeping the lenses in the cloth bag seems to me a bit more risky since the bags have no fastening of any sort and are not really all that padded either.) Can anyone comment on this issue of lens storage please? Any good or bad experiences, or words of advise? Thanks.
  8. I bought this for a song, after trying it in the store. I had no idea what the branding said on the lens, but having got it home and googled it I can now say it's an Industar 69, which came with a half frame camera built in the USSR between 1968 and 1972 I think. So why do I love it? It is really tiny, even on my M39 adapter, it has massive focal depth and is quite sharp in the centre. But it is also really characterful, going blurry at the edges with loads of chromatic aberration, which I don't care about, because it will mostly be used in black and white on the streets. It makes architecture shots look like antique photos, partly through a reduction in contrast I think. In a way it reminds me of the toy-like Holga lenses I have on my M4/3 system. Focus was from around one metre to infinity, however, from reading around, I think it was already modified for infinity by a previous owner. I tried another copy in the store and that would not focus at all, so I suspect it needed modification. Having read up on how easy it is to modify this lens, I had a go myself and within 5 minutes I have got it focussing down to 16cm. This was simply by unscrewing and removing an internal metal post inside the focus ring. This post moved between two other posts, which are on the main body of the lens, and define the close and infinity focus points. The proper way to modify the lens is to file these posts down until you get stops at your desired nearest focus point and infinity. Perhaps later I will do the mod properly, but for now, my quick and easy mod will suffice. Below are two shots of the lens to give you an idea of the size and appearance of the lens. I will post some shots taken with the lens soon and add them in to this thread for anyone who is interested in this kind of thing. All in all, for £30 for a lens and £10 for the M39 adapter, it makes a great alternative to a body cap lens and a cheaper option than the XF27mm.
  9. Need to buy the Lens Mount Contact of Fujifilm (XC 16-50mm) as it got broken. Any idea where I can get it other then Fuji Showroom.
  10. Hi All, Quick background: I am 54 years old, returning to photography with a higher budget than when I started out with a Pentax ME-Super some 30 years ago and now more focused on doing it right (thanks to the internet and people like you). So maybe you could call me an "enthusiast with attitude". After 2 years of solid research, this week I went out to the local shops and handled the two cameras in my shortlist, namely the XT-1 and Nikon D5500. Holding the XT-1 was great, but after comparing the look through the viewfinders, it was clear to me that XT-1 was the way to go. That's putting it mildly as my eyes screamed out to me in joy on the XT-1 whilst I was squinting to see anything on the D5500. So one decision made. So its now down to lenses. And I don't really wish to spend another 2 years to work on that. So spare me the agony if you will and help me out. Obviously you might ask me what I want to do with the camera. Well the sky's the limit as I love to experiment but I have a good idea where I want to start. I want general purpose photography capability (family etc), but I also want to focus on portraiture/people/street shots so I was thinking maybe a 35 mm prime? Apart from that maybe some architecture and for sure I want to work with night shots. And of course macro - insects and suchlike. Of course there is a limit to how much I can afford. So my basic "cunning" plan was to go with the 18-55 mm kit lens as a general factotum. And a prime - say a 35 mm for much of the rest. Except for macro; not sure what I would need there. Now, it so happens that I still have have my Pentax ME Super 50 mm prime lens. Its a K mount, so would I find an adapter for it? And would it work as well as say the 35 mm dedicated lens? I appreciate I would have to use manual focus but that's how we used to take photos way back and I have no problem with manual focus at all. Besides the XT-1 apparently makes this easier than most. So would that work? Also, anyone have any links for suitable adapters please? And whilst on lenses, do older film lenses actually work well with the XT-1? I am asking because while I would expect these to be readily available and cheap, no one really seems to talk much about this, which makes me think I am either being a miserable miser by even considering this approach or else it simply does not work for any number of reasons (no adapter available, aesthetic reasons (it looks bad), weight etc.) Any help would be appreciated as lenses are expensive and the wrong decision should ideally be avoided. Any other advice, ditto, since I am far from street-wise yet. Thank you, gentle people. John
  11. Considering the fact I am absolutely new to the Fujifilm system I looked for an answer to this in the forums but did not find one. I know I can purchase adapters for Leica M lens but, will a Fuji DM F/AX Mount Lens work with a Fuji X Pro1. Are there any older Fuji system lens that will adapt to the X system?
  12. For sale or trade for Nikon 1-V1 or V2. Fuji X-a1 camera & 16-50mm lens. Camera has less than 200 shutter actuations.

  13. I have the XF18-55, XF55-200 and the XF27mm, which are all great. But I love going old school, having first used classic Pentax lenses on my m4/3 system. I carried over two Olympus OM prime lenses from my OM-D E-M10, an F3.5 50mm Macro, and an F2.8 28mm. These are very impressive and fun to use, especially for the street walk around stuff I tend to do. They force me to think, but also allow me to just look down at my X-T10 and know instantly what my settings are, given I tend to stick to a limited range of ISO settings. Now I have decided to expand my range, as I can't think what else I could get for Christmas. Today the Amazon guy brought me two K&F Concepts X-Fit adapters, one for Canon FD and one for Leica M39 screw fit, although I am thinking M42 might have given me more choices. But hey, at £10 a pop, these adapters are great and cheap. Almost cheap enough to just leave one on each classic lens. So tomorrow I am off to West Yorkshire Camera in the Corn Exchange in Leeds, here in the UK, to see what delights I can find. Their prices seem to track eBay and you can try the lens on your camera. I have my eye on these lenses... Canon 50mm F1.4 or maybe Olympus 50mm F1.8. They have many more lenses than they put on the website. And on eBay I am looking at this Helios 44 58mm F2 nut job lens with the swirly bokeh. I'm also tracking some shorter focal lengths too. I think it is fair to say I am hooked on cheap legacy glass. All I need to do now is put together a flickr folder of my work!

  15. I have recently purchased an X1Pro with the Fujinon 18 -135 lens. Nice camera. However, it came with a -1 diopter correction lens fitted to the eyepiece and the image though the viewfinder is really blurry. I have been advised, as a spectacles wearer, that I need a +2 diopter correction lens. I tried a +2 correction lens at an optician (Specsaver, incredibly helpful) and the image through the viewfinder was crystal clear. But the Fuji replacement +2 correction lens appears to be unobtainable in the UK, even through Fuji. I understand that a Nikon +2 diopter eyepiece correction lens for the D1/F100 may fit? Can anyone out there confirm this? Alternatively can anyone in the UK sell me the Fuji +2 or tell me where I might be able to lay my hands on one? Many thanks
  16. Hi Guys, I need to use my Contax Lens (Carl Zeiss) mount to my FUJI X-T1. Any suggestion for the ring adapter? thanks W.
  17. Hi everyone, I'm looking to become a wedding photographer full-time. I had my first wedding in July of this year, which went really well. I mainly used the XT1 and XPro-1 on the day as I was having problems with my Canon at the time. In the end I sold my Canon gear and have never looked back. I'm thinking of selling the XF 18mm and XF 27mm, so I can put the money towards the XF 50-140mm. Would this be a wise decision? This would be my first zoom lens on the X system as I mainly use primes. The OIS looks really appealing to me especially under low light conditions. Would any of you recommend this lens? Kind regards, Paul

  22. My Olympus OM-D E-M10 has finally given me a reason to replace it. It broke! Sure it will,be fixed under warranty but now it is tarnished in my mind and leaves me feeling it might be a little flimsy. So I am ready to push the button on an X-T10. I'm just not sure which lens combo to go with if I do. I am also considering the Olympus OM-D E-M5 II or the E-M1, as I would only need to buy the body only versions of these and they are supposed to be more rugged than the E-M10. i shoot mostly landscape, some street, some macro, some wildlife and some general family stuff. I expect to use my legacy Olympus OM lenses via an adaptor. I have a lovely 28mm F2.8, a 50mm Macro, which will make a great portrait lens on the X System, and a 100-200 zoom. i realise that the X cameras do not have in body image stabilisation, so I would want to start out with a good pair of native X lenses. I was thinking of going with the XC 16-50 II but I have seen no reviews on it yet. As a bundle though, it only adds £100 to the base camera cost of £499 so it seems like a no brainier. I was then thinking of the XF55-200 and maybe the XF27, as I would like a compact prime around this focal length. There is a lens deal on in the UK and buying two XF lenses means you can get £225 cash back. So what are these lenses like, what have others done. Any help or advice would be welcome. Thanks.
  23. (UK only) This lens is in great condition. For sake of convenience there is a link to the lens on ebay (at a high price so it isn't bought!) A direct bank transfer will be preferred. Price is negotiable. http://m.ebay.co.uk/itm/161730071680?nav=SEARCH
