    Fuji My dream X100....

    It's hard to argue with that approach, but what I'd be happy with is a 40/1.8 or 2.0, with a TC to get me to 85 or 90. 1.4 would be cool, but I'm not sure I'd welcome the increased size. IS would be great; weather-resistance not important to me. I'd also like an interchangeable grip with a...

    Yeah, that double-walled stainless steel is sweet. Keeps hot hot and cold cold with no sweating. Seems kind of expensive at first, but well worth it imo.

    Fuji XH1 with Grip at Roberts for 1299

    Biro/drd, how does IS on X-H1 compare to the 5-axis IS on Oly bodies? I'm always tempted by Fuji, but I've become reliant on IBIS.

    This one is a gift, for my soon-to-be 14-year-old daughter. She is a huge Green Day fan, so when reverb.com opened up a shop of gear used by the band I had to browse. I was tempted by the four and five figure guitars, but I showed restraint. Ended up buying a pair of Tannoy Reveal 502...

    Micro 4/3 Initial impressions of the GX85

    I think the GX85 is a very good camera that becomes great because of the value proposition. I think the GX8 to GX9 was a mis-step for Panny, highlighted by the GX85 as a low-cost option. Next version needs to be a "best of" mash-up of those cameras.

    That's what I was thinking as well. I wouldn't want to block all outside sounds when walking the dog. Nor would I want full size cans. I'd probably be looking at AirPods or the non-Apple equivalent.

    Fuji Wet Fuji Lenses

    Agree with all points. I don't see how you (the OP) can trust the people who "discovered" issues that you were unaware of to then manage the remediation of those issues. They may be credible, but you are asking to be scammed if you play those cards.

    the Little Dot + Grados is a great combo. Be careful though, soon you'll have a drawer full of tubes. It is fun to try different options to tweak sound. The stock tubes with the Little Dot are fine, but it is kind of like a kit lens vs a nice prime.

    Resort Town To Charge Commercial Photographers!

    I'll add the Fuji X10 line to this. I think it is officially discontinued. I always hoped/expected they'd throw a 1" sensor in to that line and really up the ante. I pulled my X10 out earlier this evening and charged it up for the first time in a while. Still a great camera to shoot with and...

    Fuji X-E3

    If I still shot Fuji that is exactly what I'd be thinking. The 3 is a total miss for me (loss of controls and loss of flash). Kind of like the E-M10mk3 from Olympus. But I do agree about manufacturers having to sell cameras. If this is what it takes so be it. I will just need to make a...

    Good question. I was lazy in my description! I can't recommend the lens if you plan to use manual focus. If you set it at f/2.4, 2.8, or 3.5 it changes to f/4. Not sure why. Seems to focus fine, but the aperture control is definitely an issue. Thanks.

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

    Does anyone think Fuji will ever produce a "portrait lens for the masses", a 60/1.8, more or less, for ~ $500? I'd like the 56/1.2, of course, but I know I wouldn't use it enough to justify the cost. I'm close to buying a 60/2.4, but some of the slow AF horror stories still stick in my head.

    Fuji What would a reasonable price to ask for my Fuji X100s be?

    The T may go for $900. The S will be quite a bit less. Look at sold listings on eBay for pricing. I agree that eBay is the way to go. Look on Fred Miranda forum for comparison. Older Fuji models are not going for a lot of money. Worked out well for me in buying an X-E2 though. :)
