  1. Very good picture, Joe. Last week I bought a Fuji X100F, and I liked it so much that this weekend I try the X T2 and the X Pro 2, to see which of the two interests me more. The weight of the team starts to become important at my age 😀 😀 😀

    1. Welcome to the Fuji club Charly 😀 I have an X-T1 but I’m more of a rangefinder type shooter so I purchased the X-Pro 2. Being an eyeglass wearer I find the Electronic viewfinder on the x-T1/T2 bigger but I’m willing to sacrifice that for the Hybrid viewfinder on the X-Pro 2. I mostly shoot with the optical viewfinder because it’s easier to see with sunglasses on. The one negative on the X-Pro 2 is the diopter adjustment knob. It’s very easy to knock out of adjustment when taking in and out of a camera bag. Good luck with your X100F. The X100S is the camera that started my journey into the Fuji world and the X100F is worlds better. I love mine and it’s my go to camera 90 % of the time.

      1. Thanks for the info Joe. I have thoroughly tested the two Fuji this weekend and I choose the X T2. The viewfinder, larger; the folding screen, the possibility of ggrabar video in 4K, and a much more efficient grip, make it the camera that interests me the most. I tried it with the 56mm f1.2 and the results are amazing! 😀

  2. Love the image … even if there’s too much gobblydgook underneath it (you know, Fuji X-Pro 2 and XF 14mm f/2.8 R Lens – Fuji ACROS film simulation with Red Filter) 🙂

    1. Thank you Mario. You will manage by using your feet as a zoom just like back in the old days 🙂 I find that using a prime lens gives me different approaches and angles to a subject that I wouldn’t have thought of with a zoom. Happy hunting my friend.

        1. Well if you do get a 30mm it will actually work out to a 45mm after you factor in the crop factor of the APS-C sensor Mario. The normal formula for crop sensor camera is – focal length times 1.5 for example (30mm focal length x 1.5 = 45mm effective focal length). If you had a full frame sensor there would be no equation a 30mm would equal 30mm. Crop sensors are smaller so you have to use the above equation. Think about when you had your Canon, which focal length did you use the most. Did you tend to use the wider angle or the telephoto portion of the range more. If you had the Tamron 17-50 the effective focal length on that lens would work out to approx. 28-75mm after factoring the cropped sensor of your Canon.

    1. Thank you Emilio 😀 I always thought Fuji would do a firmware update and include ACROS but nothing so far. Its a shame because I’m keeping my X-T1 because of the 16 megapixel sensor I wish they would add it. The X-Pro 2 and X100F files are huge by comparison.
