    A question for all those who shoot B&W...

    I shoot RAW and I always shoot in colour and if I feel an image warrants it, I convert it to B&W in post

    Advice Wanted Changing lenses with Tele-Converter

    Yes - maybe that's the reason? I ALWAYS switch off before any changes - removing memory card/ changing batteries or lenses. It should be obvious though

    Advice Wanted Changing lenses with Tele-Converter

    Yes - I always have body and rear caps available doing it at home (full of cat fluff...) but I take two bodies when out and about in order to minimise having to do changes outdoors

    Advice Wanted Changing lenses with Tele-Converter

    I've got a 1.4x TC for the Fuji X system, currently using it with my 80mm macro. I want to use it with the 70-300. This is common enough and I've swapped TC's before but I have always read that the order in which to do it is as follows: First remove the lens plus TC from the body, remove the TC...

    Thank you very much for your detailed answer @Bobby Tingle. After many years of LR I switched to Capture One five years ago when I first got into the Fuji X system after shooting Nikons since the 80s. Although I have huge GAS attacks, it is impossible to keep up with new releases. So I've got...

    @Bobby Tingle - Great image and I love your editing here - may I ask how you did it? (what software, any presets etc?) This is the newer version of the 18mm, right? Looks wonderful. I have the old version - I don't know whether you ever used that? If so, could you mention comparisons etc?
