  • Yep, same lens. What do you mean by “how does it fare?“ How does it fare in what characteristics? There are a lot of opinions and reviews available, including many YouTube video reviews. For me ...
  • Replied in Fuji 18-135?
    This lens is pretty much glued to my XT2. It’s the combo I always have when out hiking around with my wife, who isn’t going to slow down while I stop to fiddle with lens changes. Sharpness is fine ...
  • I set the ISO dial to A and use the front command dial to control ISO. I set the SS dial to A and use the rear dial to adjust SS, and with the aperture dial you have your exposure triangle settings ...
  • I had the T, then gassed on up to the F. Others have already listed many of the updates from the T to the F, so I’ll just add that it was worth the purchase for me. I would recommend to stretch ...
  • Replied in 35 or 50?
    My 35 f1.4 focus sound level is about the same as my X100F. But I don’t pay much attention  to sounds when it comes to still photography.
  • I agree with you about keeping it simple, the reason I purchased this camera. Most of the time I find the filter adapter (without the hood) to be all I need to protect the lens from my grubby ...
  • The Lensmate version rests against the body as well.
  • Replied in Strap?
    Thanks Greg. I might look into them when I get a chance. It would be nice to swap straps between all three of my X cameras.
  • Replied in Strap?
    Strangely I'm still using the factory issue strap with my X100F as I just haven't yet found anything quite as simple and unobtrusive. When I put the camera back in the bag I just wrap the strap ...
  • Too large? Not in my use and it's one of the best fitting hoods on any of my XF lenses. I rather like it myself. It does reverse you know.
  • Replied in Best Hood?
    I had a sliver X100T. Got a lot of attention from people wondering if it was an old film camera. That was nice but I'd rather have less attention. I bought the X100F in black. I've gotten no ...
  • Tough time to sell a pre-owned X-T2 with the current $500 discount for a new one. Not to mention several owners are trying to sell their used ones before the rumored XT3 arrives on the scene. Me ...
  • XE3 with one lens attached, 18-55 or smaller, BYOB7. XE3 with two small primes (18/35, 23/50), one attached, BYOB7 XE3 with 18-55 and one or two additional equal or smaller lenses, BYOB9. These ...
  • Speaking of macro, I put a step up ring and Raynox 250 on my X100F a few days ago and was very surprised at the results. Nothing worthy of posting for the moment as they were just test shots but I ...
  • I could swap the front/rear dial functionality but I like to use the front dial for ISO and the rear dial for SS, in attempt to maintain at least some similarity between bodies. Thanks for the ...
  • I have the Lensmate thumb grip for my X100F. As much as I admire their products this is one that is a bit difficult to find peace with. It's probably because I shoot mostly in A, the SS Dial set ...
  • This has nothing to do with shoes. Although I respect your opinion I will agree to disagree. We all go our own way and hopefully neither of us gets burned. I’ve made my point, and you yours. ...
  • I appreciate that Amazon chooses to offer a generous return policy. However, that is a risk that’s on them, not me. If the box has been opened, it’s now an open box item and should be advertised ...
  • X100F only for most business travel. X100F and XE3 with the 14 f2.8 and 50 f2 for my lightweight travel kit on vacation. Around home it’s the X100F and XT2 with 55-200. In SW Florida I usually need ...
  • When you format a card, all you’re doing is wiping the FAT clean. The FAT is kind of a table of contents for where the images are stored on the card, much the same as a hard drive. That’s why ...
