    Fuji 16\1.4 or 16-55\2.8?

    How about 16 f/1.4 + the kit lens 18-55 f/2.8-4.0? Just my 2 cents (even though I'm not a Fuji user anymore)

    Fuji Went to a camera store with one purpose and then this happened...

    That's a very good remark you are making there, KillRamsey. In all honesty, I hadn't been aware that AF played an important role to me. In fact, it was just in that store, when I was fiddling around with Fuji, that I realized it actually did. Not that it would stop me from taking a decent...

    Fuji Went to a camera store with one purpose and then this happened...

    I went to a camera store today and spent 2 hours chatting with some folks about Fuji. Had a chance to hold X-T20, X-Pro2, X-T2, X-E3 and a X100F. I also had a chance to fiddle with Sony A7r2. I definitely love the joystick on the X-E3 but not so much on the X-T2 (not sure why but it definitely...

    Fuji Went to a camera store with one purpose and then this happened...

    I definitely saw mushiness and lack of sharpness in the files coming from X-T1, which was a real shame because I loved the feel the camera offered. And that "feel" still attracts me to Fuji, for better or worse; that's why I was (or am) hoping that X-T2/X-T20 sensor somehow managed to get rid of...

    Fuji Went to a camera store with one purpose and then this happened...

    Hi Will and thanks for the post. My X-T1 was paired with that kit lens and I really disliked the results. I mean... I don't have a single (sic!) picture of a landscape with foliage from that period that I'm happy about. Mushy greens were infuriating. Wish I could just rent both cameras and...

    Fuji Went to a camera store with one purpose and then this happened...

    Hello there, I went to a local camera store with a printed email (I had inquired about the prices and got some decent discounts) to buy a Sony A7r2 with 1 or 2 small lenses. Heavy heart accompanied me as the thought of spending a lot while still being invested in my m43 gear rambled in my mind...

    Fuji Showcase Fujifilm XF 18-55 f/2.8-4 R LM OIS Zoom

    Hello! How did you manage to achieve that toy-ish look of the car? The first time I glanced at that pic I thought it was like a diorama and the car was just a matchbox toy! :-)

    Fuji Is X-T2 prone to flares and should I go to FF?

    Hello there, I keep hearing about some kind of issue with flares that X-T2, supposedly, suffers from. Can anyone shed some light on it? Another thing and much bigger than the first question... I've been shooting E-M5mk2 for a while now and while I love that camera, I would like to have a...

    Fuji Thinking about leaving m4/3

    Looks like we're in the same boat except that I don't have that many lenses in m4/3, so I'm not so deeply invested in it. I am considering getting the 75mm Oly, though. I'd go for a Fuji X-T20, but I keep hearing from people that Fuji cameras are optimized for portraits (skin tones!) and not so...

    Fuji Does X-T20 suffer from shutter shock?

    Dear Users, Since X-T2 is a bit out of my reach for the time being, I've been pondering over getting an X-T20. I've been digging in the Internet and searching for images, reviews, and whatnot, and yesterday I found some comments on DPreview (from users, not the reviewers) saying that X-T20...

    Fuji X-T2 geared towards portraiture? What about mushy landscapes?

    Olympus? I kinda see some noise there. I might be wrong though. As I said, I love Olympus, but for me it's the sensor that breaks the deal here... EDIT: Fuji ;)

    Fuji X-T2 geared towards portraiture? What about mushy landscapes?

    Thanks a bunch KillRamsey! Appreciate that! I'm having such a hard time deciding if Fuji is the way to go. The thing that makes me a bit hesitant is the lack of in-body IS system. Then again, my Olympus has IS but those 16MPixels and a small-sh sensor don't really float by boat either.

    Fuji X-T2 geared towards portraiture? What about mushy landscapes?

    Thank you for the answers and sorry for the typos in the previous post. I assume that in case of SOOC JPEGs the issue of foliage rendering doesn't exist?

    Fuji X-T2 geared towards portraiture? What about mushy landscapes?

    Thanks for the answers. Well, it's not like a blindly follow each and every review on youtube, but there used to be quite a lot of chatter about how X-T1 couldn't handle green areas. I remember that some of the pictures taken with my X-T1 weren't too impressive in terms of rendition of foliage...

    Fuji X-T2 geared towards portraiture? What about mushy landscapes?

    Dear Users, I keep hearing from video (youtube) reviewers that X-T2 makes a great portrait-work camera, and not necessarily an equally great landscape-work camera. Is it really so? Is X-T2 geared towards portraiture? Has Fuji dealt with the problem X-T1 had, i.e. mushy green areas? I'm really...

    Fuji Ken Rockwell on X-T2...

    Dear Users, I've just come across this review of X-T2: Fuji X-T2 Review This is what Ken Rockwell says: Fuji X-T2 versus DSLRs DSLRs are the workhorses of the pro industry. They give the best picture quality, widest range of lenses and fastest operation. The reason to look at mirrorless...

    Fuji X-T2 in Japan? / HDR

    Thanks again Luke. That's not a bad idea at all... I just don't have a very good memory of my first X-T1... The way green areas were rendered was very disappointing and that made me go back to Olympus.

    Fuji X-T2 in Japan? / HDR

    Thanks Luke. The thing is that I'll be back in Europe in two week's time... Once I'm again in Shanghai, China there's no way I can sell my E-M5mk2 here. EDIT: Don't get me wrong, E-M5mk2 is a lovely camera. Stunning in many ways. I love the way it feels in my hands, I love its styling, its...

    Fuji X-T2 in Japan? / HDR

    I don't know what to do. I have a chance to sell my Olympus E-M5mk2, but then I will be left without a camera for my trip in Japan... X-T2 comes out in September... I've been considering going FF and getting a Sony A7ii...

    Fuji X-T2 in Japan? / HDR

    Hello everyone, Does anyone know if it'll be possible to buy X-T2 in Japan somewhere around August 20th? Also, X-T1 had a very limited HDR mode. Does X-T2 have a more advanced one? Thanks!

    Fuji Am I crazy? Why do I crave the 56mm so bad?

    Nope. I'm currently in Shanghai, China. No hiring here. I don't think quitting m4/3 is a smart choice, but that doesn't diminish my lust for the 56mm lens ;)

    Fuji Am I crazy? Why do I crave the 56mm so bad?

    Dear Users, I'm an m4/3 user but my story goes a bit further than that. Matter of fact, I used to own X-T1 some time ago, but sold it due to various reasons (most people don't invest in two systems anyway) Don't get me wrong, I'm perfectly happy with my E-M5mk2, it's a great camera and the...

    Fuji Should I sell my X-T1?

    Thanks Lightmancer, I appreciate your help. In all honesty though, I have no idea what you mean by "recompose" Do you mean... did I change the object that I wanted to focus the camera on? What I did was 1) I fouced on the kid. 2) Made sure the camera got the focus. 3) I pressed the shutter...

    Fuji Should I sell my X-T1?

    I wish I could recall that. Those pics were taken such a long time ago... I suppose I focused on the kid's face. I mean, the green square was right on his face (in both cases)

    Fuji Should I sell my X-T1?

    Thanks It's set on 0. When you say that you'd have exposed the second one about 1/3 of a stop brighter, would you do it by adjusting the shutter speed ot the aperture? Where can I upload pics so that you guys could see them in full size?

    Fuji Should I sell my X-T1?

    Howdy, I've been away for quite a while... Sorry about that and thank you for each and every post. I'd like to upload a few pictues to show you what I'm talking about. Unfortunately, these are not the pictures I originally intended to upload but here we go anyway. 1) The person's face doesn't...

    Fuji Why doesn't my X-T1 focus on this object while my Ipad does?

    Dear Users, I've noticed that my X-T1 sometimes has problems with focusing and I don't know if it's just my camera or... something else. Have a look at the following pictures. (The last one was taken with my Ipad) Thanks

    Fuji Should I sell my X-T1?

    I definitely don't want to go to point & shoot type of camera. That would be like a step down. This is the part of photography I really hate. I'd like to take shots decent enough without having to tweak them afterwards. I'll try to upload a few pictures to show you what I'm dissatisfied with...

    Fuji Should I sell my X-T1?

    Thanks for all replies! Perhaps I should have mentioned that I don't own E-PL1 anymore. I sold it half a year before I bought X-T1. I only had a kit lens and a 45mm portrait lens so it never had been a big investment. As far a Fuji goes, I only have a kit lens. I find other lenses to be quite...

    Fuji Should I sell my X-T1?

    Dear Users, I'm not a very active member (nor a very active photographer) but I wanted to seek your opinion on a matter that has been bothering me for a while. I've owned only two real cameras in my life. Olympus E-PL1 and Fuji X-T1. I definitely have a lot to learn when it comes to...

    Fuji When do you not aim at 0?

    Hello there, Tomorrow I'll have another chance to fiddle around with my X-T1. I was wondering... I usually try to follow the light meter and try to set the dials in such a way that it says 0 (although I've found myself in situations where underexposing seemed to be a better option) Anyway, do...

    Fuji Should I get the XF55-200mm lens or should I wait for the XF50-140?

    Fuji Will an ND filter solve the problem? Overblown skies are killing me.

    Thanks for your answer. ; In all honesty, I don't know what DR bracketing is but as far as the DR option is concerned I have only two possibilities: 1) AUTO 2) DR100 DR200 and DR400 are inactive... I don't know how to turn them on.

    Fuji Will an ND filter solve the problem? Overblown skies are killing me.

    Hello there, I've been trying to take as many shots as possible with my X-T1 recently and I have to admit that overblown skies are killing me. I'll post some pictures here once I get access to my VPN but for the time being I'd like to ask what ND fliter would be best. As far as I know there...

    Hi there, I took some RAW files and opened them with Picassa. Here's what Picassa displays them like. Below you can find a screenshot. Is there something wrong with the camera or is it Picassa's fault? There are two other things I'll post in the next few hours. Thanks Cheers

    Unsharp pictures? X-T1 + 18-55. Advice needed.

    Another problem I noticed is that X-T1 had lots of problems with focusing on red objects. That Aston Martin car I posted yesterday took several approaches. The camera couldn't focus on it. I don't know why. Besides, the colors are nothing like the real car. Any suggestions as to why?

    Unsharp pictures? X-T1 + 18-55. Advice needed.

    Thanks for your comment. Yes, I did turn the noise reduction to -2... I'm seriously considering switching to Olympus E-M1. So far I'm quite disappointed with Fuji pictures (of course part of the reason is that I'm a poor photographer but still...)
