  1. Add Focus Bracketing. Some of us use these cameras for more than hand held street photos. No way will I buy a camera that forces me into an electronic finder only. Per Fuji Tech folks - focus bracketing could be done with firmware updates. But Fuji management above them for some reason won't do it, saying "people who buy the X-Pro caemeras don't photograph that way". If it is not added shortly the Fuji stuff will be on the resale shelf and I'll go with a nice Nikon D850.
  2. If it brings AutoFocus into line with the X-T2 - WHERE is Focus Bracketing?
  3. Be aware that a very useful feature added via upgrade to the X-T2 is NOT available for the X-Pro2 or the X-E3. That is Focus Bracketing. Others call it focus stacking. Have talked with a half dozen different Fuji folk, USA and Japan as well as tech folks. Tech guys say it could be done with a firmware update. Fuji says "we don't know anything, call the tech guys" and then the tech guys say to contact Fuji Corporate. Back and forth. Tried the Focus Stacking with a friends X-T2 and really like the feature. Don't like the camera - much prefer the X-Pro2. One Fuji USA rep on the phone told me "X-Pro2 owners don't use their camera that way" - somehow not understanding we do own tripods and know how to use them. Not everything is hand held street photography. And no, I won't buy an X-T2 for the feature. I'll switch to a Nikon D850 instead. If I'm forced to buy another camera for the feature it will be one I know I like using.
  4. How do I get rid of the asinine 'do you want update' window? Every time I got another post or start scrolling the damn thing pops up./
  5. What he was doing was most likely illegal. Next time ask him what law you are violating. A 'policy' or a request is not a law. Hope you got his badge number and ID so you can follow up with his supervisors.
  6. Biggest difference for me between the X-Pro and the X-E models is the size of the body. The X-E models are, for my hands - just too small. Too small for comfortable use and, with gloves on - a complete disaster. The X-Pro1 is just enough larger to handle comfortably.
  7. How is it at following action and moving subjects? I see it has a fast frame rate but am not reading anything about predictive AutoFocus or fast action sports and such.
  8. Before you drop the dollars on the German Pixel recorder do an image comparison. Friends with Leica Monochrome cameras love them - but each says "my fuji takes better photos". They use Leica because it is what they grew up on and are faithful to it. Like how it feels and handles. Still and all they prefer the images from the Fuji X series.
  9. Guys, just email me at deardorff5x7@gmail.com for images. I am not comfortable with what these sites want in personal information. I can email photos and then we can talk by phone if you would like.
  10. What is dropbox? I have them on the computer here. Can't figure out why that won't work.
  11. Guys, I have the photos on my computer on a small flash drive. Can't get them to load here. Any help with it is appreciated. You can see some of this at http://www.pictureline.com where I have the 14mm and the X-Pro1 with 18-55 listed.
  12. I bought both and am keeping the 12 and selling the 32, along with my Fuji 14. The 12 and 14 both seem as sharp. Same with the 32 and 35mm lenses. Just keeping the wider and the longer lenses. Sure do like the feel of the Zeiss lenses in hand and the Fuji lenses are no slouches. Just personal preference. Will be putting up an ad within the next few days on the lenses.
  13. Losing 20% of your images to out of focus problems is more than enough reason to change cameras. No matter how good the photos that are in focus look you are crazy to keep something this unreliable.
  14. Putting the email address is OK but your mailing address is better. Fewer glitches with the mail contacts compared to computers. Forwarding of mail is easy to do if you move. A tangible letter is easier to deal with than the ephemeral emails that at times disappear for no reason at all.
