    Fuji When to switch on the IOS in the XF18-55

    It's interesting that when I first got the 18-55 a few years back I found the IOS made images less sharp so I never turned it on, however the latest firmware has improved the IOS to the point that I leave it on all the time (I don't use a tripod very often).

    Fuji Viewing with Adapted Lenses

    It's worth noting that with lens of longer focal length which would produce a small view frame in the OVF you can enlarge the frame by holding the front VF lever for a second rather than the quick flick to change to EVF.

    Leica Jupiter 8 with 18 aperture blades?!

    I have a 1956 Jupiter-8 which has 9 blades and the focussing tab. I had a quick look in Pricelle's - The Authentic Guide to Russian and Soviets cameras but couldn't find an obvious mention of an 18 blade version of the J-8. The only mention I could find on the net referred to a 16 blade...

    My first digital camera was a 640 x 480 (0.3 megapixel) obscure make that had no lcd only an optical vf. The images were rubbish.
