  • I hear that and respect it. You may be right. But with the indulgence of the people at Aden, my local camera store, I've tried a number of their display lenses on their display X-T100. 23/1.4, ...
  • Created discussion thread Can't take the XF35/1.4 off my XT100
    I could if I wanted to, but why would I want to? The 35/1.4, one of the three oldest XF lenses, is the most perfect match for the newest camera that can use it, the X-T100. To handle it and to ...
  • Read what B&H says more carefully: "$0.00 Tax Collected Outside NY and NJ". Not collected is different from "not due". Many jurisdictions require the purchaser to disclose and remit applicable ...
  • Created discussion thread Pretty is the new Megapixels
    I posit that liking a camera is more important to your image quality than its technical specifications. A camera you like more will be used more. A camera that is used more will take more photos. M ...
  • Thanks for this. I picked up my XT100 today, and can confirm that it definitely has more rolling shutter effects than my XT2, which I can use in ES with relative impunity, and more than I remember ...
  • Don't flash the countdown light for the two-second self timer. Allow the Q Menu items to be selected/modified by the joystick, for cameras that have them, same as regular menu items can. Disable ...
  • This thread title is deceptive to the point of being clickbait. I read it and thought "Impossible! Fujifilm Canada people are awesome!" Then I saw that it was about Fujifilm Service. Yeah, okay, ...
  • I've used both at home in my usual setup, and ended up buying… neither. I tested them fairly extensively at their maximum magnifications. There's a handy 1.4x and 2x Converter simulator built into ...
  • Replied in Lens for Baby
    I want to say thanks again to everyone who provided insight for this thread. My first extended baby photography session is now complete, and I wanted to loop back and say how it went. Over the ...
  • If anyone's going to sue Fujifilm they'll need to get in line behind whatever holding company owns the relevant bits of Polaroid this week. I've preordered my X-T100 Dark Silver body already. ...
  • Created discussion thread Another dealer on its way out
    A couple of days ago I was in Aden Camera, my local store, looking for some Ricoh gear. When I asked about it the manager said that they’re dumping all of their Pentax lenses below cost “because ...
  • Sorry that I can't advise on most things – video and sharing especially. But us Thetans need to stick together in this forum, so I wanted to try as best I can. Positioning the Theta is vital. Get ...
  • Replied in Lens for Baby
    In re-reading this thread I think I already know the answer to my next question, but I’ll ask it anyway. I now have access to some really excellent manual focus lenses: a 35/2 and 50/1.4. I also ...
  • Replied in X100F
    My X100F almost immediately became my favourite camera ever. None of the other X100 models convinced me, but the performance of the X100F was the reason why I traded my XT10 for an XT2. This is ...
  • Thanks everyone for the thoughts and feedback. Having looked through the options I'm leaning toward pairing my X100F with a two-lens kit for the XT2. The 16-55/2.8 may not be as suitable as any one ...
  • Replied in Lens for Baby
    Excellent, thank you. The 35/2 / 35/1.4 is coming across as a strong favourite, and I'd probably pick the f/2 for the reasons you name. Having played with both 35 versions it seems like a nicer ...
  • Replied in Lens for Baby
    Thanks very much for that, I appreciate the different perspective, especially coming from a fellow Sigma camera user. And I hadn't really thought about the post-perfect-portrait shots when I could ...
  • Bad Elf. I have the BE3500 Bad Elf GPS Pro and the Garmin GPSMAPS64 dedicated hiking GPS with its fancy antennas. The stopwatch-sized BE3500 is more accurate than the big Garmin, boots faster, is ...
  • Replied in Lens for Baby
    Baby may not move much, but the adult people holding her might. Apparently babies are “rocked” a lot. Not by me, perhaps, but by others. So I’m memorizing this while I think about it: https://www.f ...

    56APD or plain? Given that I’ll have the X100F with me I can’t see that I’d use the 23/1.4 very much, so getting the right 56 could be crucial.
