Ok, I have GAS, I admit it. At the same time, traveling on my motorcycle and trying to pack a gripped D800 with a couple of lenses, one of which being the awesome 14-24 with the limited space available can get a bit old sometimes. So... I have pretty much decided a nice XT-1 has to be in my short term future. The grey one. :) Question is though, which lens to take. Since this, besides the GAS of course, is somewhat driven by the desire to having to pack less and smaller to its easier to bring...

Has anyone out there had experience in using X-E1/X-E2 for studio portrait photography. I have both X-E1 and X-E2, along with the 18-55mm, 27mm, 56mm, 50-230mm lenses. Could anyone give me a few tips regarding basic camera/lens settings for me to use as a starting point and progress from there. Thanks, limerigger

I came across this review for the xf 18-55 and was surprised by the negative appraisal of the electronic controls, particularly the spotty responsiveness of the aperture control ring. What has been your experience? Do you have concerns about the reliability and durability of these lens controls? Also, to help keep the discussion on topic, this is a question about the controls, not the individual writing the review. Please do not clutter the thread with editorial comments about the reviewer....

Hi, There is currently a promotion in Canada from Fuji on the X-E2 camera where you can get a free 18mm prime lens if you purchase the X-E2 body only.  This is around 1000$ in Canada.  This is going to be my first SLR camera and I have never shot with only a prime lens before so my question is: Is it better to: A) Purchase the X-E2 package with the 18-55mm lens for $1200 and forfeit the current offer B) Purchase the X-E2 body only for $1000, get the free 18mm lens and then purchase the...

Hey there! I have been shooting film photography for about 2 years now with an old Canon A-1 and have collected a variety of FD lenses that I love. I am about to switch to digital though and have decided to get a Fuji XE1. My question is should I buy it with the body only and use adapters with my existing FD (28mm, 50mm, 135mm) lenses (I already have 3 adapters) or pay extra for the 18-55mm kit? I am someone who is traveling to Belize next for a month and plan on doing some heavy shooting...

Hi,Just this morning I realize there's a strange issue with my Fuji 18-55 lens. When I try to rotate the manual focus ring on the right half of the lens, it clatters as if there are some dust particles between the manual focus ring and the lens barrel. It also feel like the focus ring and the barrel fit too tightly that they rub against each other when the ring is turned. My X-e1 kit is about 1 month old purchased from WEX and haven't had a chance for outdoor shooting yet so the idea of dusk...

Found a deal, and I just couldn't resist - picked up a X-E1 with the 18-55 Kit - been shooting it for about a week and half now. Does anyone notice that the in program mode - it tries to keep the shutter speed below 1/400 - 1/500 ? It would rather stop the lens down to F11 / F16 before moving the shutter speed up on a bright day. Is there a reason for that? Is it trying to keep the shutter speed up to avoid interference with the OIS...do I need to turn the OIS off on bright days. Yes - I know...

Having a hard time deciding between the 35mm lens and the 18-55mm lens for the XE-1. I plan at some point to get an addtional lens -either now or when another lens comes out. What are you recommendations? I am interested in both lens and would be satisfied with both, however I heard the bokeh is not as good on the 18-55mm lens on another forum. http://www.fujixseries.com/discussion/2372/xf-18-55mm-f2.8-4-zoom-lens/p2Should that be a deal breaker? Thanks for your input and discussion guys.
