  • They are but the versatility and ease swapping between slide/cuff, taking off for storage and sliding up and down & quality means I don’t actually look at other fancy looking (but less versatile ...
  • I use several peak design straps with my XH1 and 16-55 and 50-140 including the slide light, slide and cuff and they are great. I tend to use the cuff as security rather than dangle it but I have ...
  • I know this post is a few months old but I shoot amateur indoor swimming galas with an XH1 and 50-140 2.8 and get good results from the side stands even in poor/mixed lighting. Usually set the SS ...
  • Taken a few shots with my new x70 and really like it. Build is better in real than pictures. The images are great and I feel I am not compromising iq as much if I use this as a carry round rather ...
  • That’s exactly the sort of use I will put it to when getting out my XH1 is too awkward!
  • I’ve actually just ordered used X70 to accompany my XH1. I’ve had small pocket cams before like the RX100s and LX100 but the smaller sensor just niggled me, but I’m hoping the x70 will be a long ...
  • Replied in EM1ii to X-H1?
    The pictures do look different, I’m enjoying the camera much more and happy with the swap so that’s what matters in the end.
  • I considered the Sony A7iii but the lenses are too expensive and again the control system was reminiscent of the Olympus with lack of direct dials which I wanted.
  • Replied in EM1ii to X-H1?
    Thanks for you detailed analysis. The answer was yes to some of those on the m43 and I made the switch a few weeks back and happy with the switch. That said I do understand that for many others ...
  • Replied in EM1ii to X-H1?
    Yes I’d agree with the reach and battery but no t noticed the issues with AF or touch screen you’ve described since I’ve had it since launch. I don’t mind carrying spare batteries and don’t use ...
  • Replied in EM1ii to X-H1?
    I made the jump to the XH1 and 16-55 and love the easy access to the new Fuji controls and the shallower dof I can get without having to switch to my 1.2 lens. I particularly like being able to ...
  • Yes it’s normal. I had it confirmed by someone at Fuji. It is the floating sensor being ‘locked’ regardless of ibis mode set.  There is a similar hum in another camera I have with ois and likely ...
  • Thanks. In the past, I’ve found tracking not to work well in swimming so rely on CAF which is usually successful. If I used the converter too, do you think 1 stop of light(?) using the converter ...
  • Hi, I am moving into the Fuji X system coming from Olympus 40-150 f2.8 and I am looking to get an equivalent quality lens. With this previous set up I mostly shot at 100-150mm (equiv. 300mm) SS ...
  • Hi Doug, it doesn’t make it less good but it doesn’t do some of things I want it to do sometimes and I think the new interface I think would be more intuitive and user friendly to me. However as ...
  • Replied in EM1ii to X-H1?
    Hi Zephon, Coincidentally I was about to check out the weight of each body/lens this morning too to compare so thank you for doing it for me! i think it is part gas but I actually bought a refurb ...
  • The lenses I would get would be the 16-55 2.8 and 50-140 2.8 and a fast prime probably 35 1.4 or f2. This would replace my 1240,40150 and 25 1.2. At the moment I can carry all 3 in reasonable size ...

    Lol
  • Replied in Wait
    Hi Chris, I fear you could be correct and the lure of a slightly bigger sensor with nice body with IBIS is striking me again; That combined with some nostalgic favourite photos from an X100S. I ...
  • Replied in EM1ii to X-H1?
    Thank you for your comprehensive reply - I think it is a partial case of GAS and I do like the XH1 design in theory but in real use it may well not be as immediate and quick to use and have less ...
