    Fuji Showcase Fuji XF 50 2.0

    Birding with the 50/2? This little chap is a fantail, or pīwakawaka, one of the more common native species here in New Zealand. They’re quite fearless and very quick.

    Fuji Fuji XF 27 MkII

    Oh yes, my old Minolta A-mount lenses did a lot of grinding and buzzing too. I had no real issues with the image quality of the 27, I mostly wasn't so fond of the focal length.

    Fuji Fuji XF 27 MkII

    I got rid of my 18/2 and 27/2.8 partly because of how loud they were to focus. I will only tolerate it on my 35/1.4 :D

    Fuji Showcase Fuji 35mm F2 WR

    You're a convincing bunch aren't you? :laugh: So, I stopped by my favourite camera store on the way home and got myself a 35/2 — it's absolutely great. Sharp at f/2, super quiet, and could there be a faster focussing lens for Fujifilm? I'll try to post some images later.

    Fuji Showcase Fuji 35mm F2 WR

    I already have the 23 and 50 f2 lenses and like them both. I also have the 35/1.4 which I love, but would appreciate a faster focusing, WR lens now I have an XP3.

    Fuji X-Pro3 first impressions

    I picked up a new X-Pro3 in Dura silver a couple of weeks back, for barely more than the price of the painted black version. I absolutely love this camera. My 35/1.4 is glued to it for the moment. It’s a big step up from my X-E3 that it replaces.

    The 23/2 is a great combo with the X-E3.

    I believe this only works on cameras that support tethering. I do agree it’s annoying.

    Six weeks of waiting, but my TP leather half-case finally arrived, curiously via German post. Nice matching hand strap provided as a free gift. This will be my fourth TP case (having put one on each of my X-E 1, 2, & 3 cameras), nicely made without the price tag of other brands.

    Fuji Showcase Fujinon XC 15-45mm 3.5-5.6 OIS PZ

    One of the neighbours' chickens, through our adjoining slat fence. No crop, and just a slight bump in Definition to improve the contrast. I find this lens a bit patchy at the long end, but it can still deliver.

    Fuji Showcase XC 50-230 Samples

    Thanks, René! This is the version one lens. I bought it six years ago almost to the day, while visiting friends in Adelaide, Australia. It cost me AU$275 new, and the performance has far eclipsed the price.

    At noon on Easter Sunday, pipers all over the world were invited to play Amazing Grace from their location, to help lift our spirits during the pandemic. Our neighbour's daughter plays the bagpipes and she was out with her mother, and younger brother in full regalia.

    Sorry to hear it didn’t work out for you. I’m glad now that I ordered another product while I was waiting for the ES protectors. I’ll keep hold of them as backups.

    As a footnote to my previous post, I received not one but two Expert Shield protector packs today, in separate packaging. A note in the second package explained there was a potential manufacturing defect in their first batch, which may cause the edges not to adhere properly. So they were...

    I received my upscreen hybrid glass protector last week, still no sign of the expert shield that I ordered nearly two weeks prior. I was a little less than careful applying it, so ultimately took me four goes due to dust and alignment issues. Being semi rigid it wasn’t hard to take off and put...

    That’s the second bad experience I’ve heard with the X100V Expert Shield protector. If you let them know they will replace them. I’m still waiting for mine ordered on the 20th of Feb! I also ordered a glass protector (my first) from a different company that I’ve had good experiences with - I’m...

    I have the silver. I was very tempted by the dark green case, but the darker brown is a little more classic. If I'd bought the black I'd have gone the same with the case, as I did with my black X-E3.

    I ordered a TP half case in brown on Amazon today. Mine ships from China, and will probably be about a month away. There’s a US seller though BolinUS (they don’t do intl shipping to my location).

    The TP cases I’ve bought previously have had solid bases as well - which has the benefit of adding a bit of depth to the grip.

    The size is different according to someone on another forum who bought an F protector. I’m waiting on an Expert Shield protector coming from the US, and an upScreen glass protector from the UK just to cover my bases!

    Yes, I’ve had two never-ready cases with two second hand X100s (S & T). I won’t be buying the official one, especially as it’s $200 in my money. I’ve bought TP branded cases off eBay for three X-E cameras and they’ve been great.

    Fuji The great X100V discussion thread (formerly "specs leaked")

    I’ve got my eye on a second hand WCL-X100 II, but still in two minds. 28mm eqv isn’t my favourite focal length (I have an 18/2 that sits unused) and I have an iPhone that covers it - in reasonable light at least.

    My 23/2 will go, though I’ll keep my X-E3. I have too many lenses I don’t use, so will possibly have a clear out.

    It’s quite excellent at the wide end, but my results at 45mm have been very inconsistent. I’m not sure if it’s my copy, but it can very soft at any aperture while at other times it can be quite sharp even wide open. I’ve tried with various OIS settings (including off) but haven’t nailed down...
