    Fuji Question about 50-140...

    I found a great deal, never really wanted it. I like the 55-200XF just fine. But the extra speed is nice and it still fits in my bag in the 55-200 spot. With the 1.4X it might be more versatile than the 55-200. Might have to post the 55-200 for sale...

    I didn't notice that, but was outdoors at a noisy game.

    Fuji Question about 50-140...

    May have answered my own question... Rockwell says, "Noises When Shaken - Strong clunking from the uncaged OIS system flopping around."

    Fuji Question about 50-140...

    Just opened box, grabbed lens and ran to a lacrosse game. Lens seemed to work great, but clunks a lot when moved around off the camera. Is that OIS doing that when it has no power?

    Fuji First World Problem

    Actually for one shot, yes. I've been given space to bring back a good shot of Hemingway's home and it could go that large. Otherwise, no. I am leaning toward the Fuji right now, the Sonys have always been my work kit, and the Fujis are just more fun to shoot and DO hold up quite well as you say.

    Fuji First World Problem

    I was lucky enough to be in the VIP area for the last night shuttle launch. Took a camera, big lens, monopod, and worried about it for weeks ahead of time. The instant the engines lit, A put it all down and just watched it go. To this day, I'm not the least bit sorry. What I saw far exceeded...

    Fuji First World Problem

    For the life of me, I can't make a Sony file look like a Fuji SOOC. I can THINK I have until the next time I shoot with the Fuji... Someone asked me once about a Sony I had and a Nikon Df, I told him the Sony was an excellent image capture device, the Df was a great camera. IMHO that is doubly...

    Fuji First World Problem

    Last evening I loaded up the new backpack with the Sony gear (A7Riii/12-24/24-105/70-300/50/flash), picked it up and slung it over my shoulders. There is no way in Hell, I'd spend this dream trip lugging THAT around. I'm packing my Domke F2 and going light. My left shoulder has had 40 years of...

    Fuji First World Problem

    I agree, but would add detail shots to that expectation. I’d seriously considered taking only the 16-80 and going super simple.

    Good idea about the cards AND B&H has a sale today! No one ever mentions taking anything long, always wides. Interesting.

    Fuji First World Problem

    The only other concern for me is that I’ve been offered walk space in a local restaurant for a good shot of Hemingway’s home near Havana. I was thinking maybe a dusk or evening long exposure to add a little drama.

    Fuji First World Problem

    My wife surprised me with a trip to Cuba in June. Cuba has always been on my bucket list as a photo destination. I've picked out a backpack, but in trying to pack it lightly for the trip I'm conflicted. I have great gear and I want it ALL to go... stupid of me. So to start, do I go with...

    Fuji Showcase Fujifilm XF 55-200 f/3.5-4.8 OIS LM

    It is now a full-on sickness. A friend introduced me to bird/wildlife photography, and after years as a self-described editorial photographer, I can't help but shoot every bird around me. These two were at a school golf tournament this morning... The second one isn't very interesting...

    Fuji Showcase If you're considering the Fuji 2X converter...

    I have no complaints. I still fight the FF vs. APS-C fight, having FF Sonys as well. So far, if I want the shot I see in my viewfinder and don't need to rely on cropping, these Fuji bodies/lenses are every bit as practically sharp as the Sonys and I totally prefer the Fuji's colors. This was my...

    Fuji Showcase Fujinon 100-400mm WR samples

    I'm even more impressed tonight. Low light and bad field lighting, yet I can still get this shot of my son facing off with a D-pole. He doesn't do this often, he usually plays long-stick middie (#27), so to get this rare shot makes me really happy. To then get home and see how well it held up...

    Fuji Showcase Fujinon 100-400mm WR samples

    Today, the 100-400 played lacrosse. Two images, the first with X-Pro2 using Velvia simulation which I find a bit too bright, it is toned down a bit here and still too bright. The second was the standard Provia setting which renders grass much more naturally. I find the X-Pro2 gives me as high...

    Fuji Showcase Fuji 35mm F2 WR

    It is all a balance. I used to shoot food for a major poultry company with a food stylist and a 4x5 in a test kitchen. That gave us perfect magazine-style food shots. We'd manage 3-4 a day max. For this restaurant, they insist on using only the real food, real plates, and that I always shoot...

    Fuji Showcase Fuji 35mm F2 WR

    Sunday morning means work for me... food shots this morning before local restaurant opens. I'm not complaining though, it is always fun and I know the owners/staff well. A little post to darken the periphery.

    Fuji Where's the GAS thread?

    My friend sold me his black X-E2 and I fell in love with it. Then came the X-Pro2 and my love for Fuji grew. A few key lenses and I was really happy with my new direction with Fuji. But then... I saw SILVER! I found a NOS silver X-E2 on eBay and is arrived today. I've not had an XC lens yet, but...

    Fuji Anyone buying the X-T30?

    If you don't want the lens, buy it for the $150 package deal and I'll pay you $200. I need a silver Fujicron... 23 or 50.

    Fuji Showcase Fuji 56mm f/1.2 R

    I even like the images this lens/camera makes from my mistakes. Shot almost directly into the sun coming through a window because my Aussie never holds still long enough for a photo. Rolled the dice and got a giant lens flare, but I still like it!

    Sony Moving to Sony

    I have Sonys (A9 and A7Riii) and have owned all of the A6xxx bodies at some point. Without the least hesitation I'd say the Fuji APS-C cameras have better IQ and color SOOC than the APS-C Sonys. As a matter of fact, I sold my Sony 100-400 in favor of the Fuji 100-400. That lens on my X-E2 or...

    Viera meeting/shoot

    My friend, tonyb on Nikon Cafe, has is putting together a meet and shoot in Florida. Anyone is welcome. Probably a meet n greet at a local restaurant, then a day at each of two local reserves. More here: https://www.nikoncafe.com/threads/viera-fl-meetup-date-poll.314509/#post-3999544

    Fuji X-H1 question...

    I'm a big fan of the rangefinder style bodies, not so much the DSLR versions, but the IBIS interested me. I'll hold off hoping the XPro3 or X-E5 (no "4" due to Japanese superstition, right?) has IBIS. ...and I hope their flagships still get built in Japan.

    Fuji X-H1 question...

    I'm also on the X-Series boards and there it seems people prefer the X-E1/2/2s over the X-E3 as well. I have an X-E2 and the color/sharpness balance is awesome.

    Fuji X-H1 question...

    I'm still new to Fuji, but it seems there is more love for the X-T2 sensor than X-T3. Does the X-H1 have the X-T2 sensor?

    Fuji Showcase On Safari at my local zoo w/55-200XF

    I’m hesitant on the 100-400 based on reviews that it is not built like a typical XF lens. Anyone recently have and use it?
