I never paid much attention to the fact that my X-T1 tripod mount is off axis until today. I decided to use only my X-T1 in a studio shoot. Normally I shoot with my 5D mark III and X-T1 also. But today I decided not to touch my 5D mark III. That is until I wanted to use my ring flash and found that I cannot mount it on the Fuji. I never thought about it before and never seen the tripod mount as a design flaw but today it blew in my face...

So what do you think? Is this the only problem of the off axis tripod mount or are there any other moments where you can see this as an issue. I hope they will fix it in the X-T2 as I really like my ring flash

This works well between my X-E2 and pano head...
