  • Thanks for all the insights, I'm very sure my mastery of this camera  is profoundly incomplete! I've dowloaded Rico's book, which looks very solid, and shall get to work. Gary
  • Thanks to all for your thoughts! Hackzaw, I've got my rear command dial set to Focus Check, but had forgotten about it. When I push it during image review, it enlarges the area around the green ...
  • Thanks, Macro! Anyway, here' s my inelegant test. I focused on the WhiBal reference card leaning on the tumbler, thinking the borders of the different gray tones would give the AF something to ...
  • Hackzaw, Thanks for sharing your not too encouraging experiences. My issue is the camera focusing in front of the target. I guess what concerns me is that, when I review photos on the camera, I can ...
  • Well, I can't figure out how to post a photo. Where do I start?
  • Created discussion thread XT-2 focus issue
    I've had my XT-2 for a week or two and am still getting the feel of it, coming from Canon DSLR's. I've been a bit disappointed with AF accuracy with the kit lens, and did some tests today. I set up ...
  • Created discussion thread XT-2 AF on horizontal lines
    i’ve had my XT-2 for about a week and feel I’m getting the hang of it, in general. I keep “testing” the AF in its various modes, and today discovered an interesting quirk: the camera is not adept ...
  • Sorry about my egregious typo. Thanks to Michael, Steve and JP4 for answering my question. I ordered the 80D & USM lens today... Gary
  • I'm not interested in full frame lenses; as I said, the camera I'm looking at is the APS-C 80D, for which B&H offers three 28-135's. I take it that the USM version is the latest (greatest?), and I ...
  • Created discussion thread Three Canon 28-135's
    I'm pretty close to ordering an 80D to replace my 60D, and I'm looking at the three different 28-135's listed at B+H. I'm wondering, what's the difference? For $400, they offer the STM (white box) ...
  • I use the Meike MK320, not too expensive and works well. It's a shoe mount flash and makes the camera/flash a lot bigger, of course... Gary
  • Created discussion thread AF micro-adjust on 80D
    I've used a 60D for some time and have wondered about the accuracy of the camera's AF or the performance of my 70-200 2.8L. Today I did a bunch of tripod mounted test shots at f 2.8 and found that ...
