  • Your list sounds pretty good.  I don't want to add to it, but I did find the Sanyang 12mm handy at times, especially for cathedrals. I hope you have a wonderful time!  We been to Paris four times, ...
  • Replied in In That Case
    I'll start with a little of my background to put my comments in perspective. I've loved photography since I was 7, back in 1958 when I got my Kodak Brownie Hawkeye. I have a degree in photography ...
  • Welcome to the forum John! Are your questions based on curiosity or do you have an interest in purchasing items? I'll start with camera bodies.  For each generation, Fuji offers a number of cameras ...
  • I looked at your equipment list and didn't see any other zooms.  Assuming your list is up to date, the only reason I would suggest the 55-200 would be to have a seamless coverage from 18-200 if ...
  • Replied in H&D Curves
    I still have my Kodak book on B&W films I bought in the mid 1960s.  It's amazing how many different film stocks they offered. For each film, they had a general description, plus H&D curve graphs ...
  • Replied in My Experience
    When looking into Fuji, I rented an X-T2, X-Pro2 16mm, 23mm and the 18-55. I think the 18-55 was decentered, one side was softer than the other. When I bought my X-E3 kit, the 18-55 was much ...
  • Replied in My Experience
    I was able to spend some time shooting with the Leica Monocrom while visiting Samys in Hollywood.  I brought my own SD card so that I could process the files when I got home. I used Silver Efex Pro ...
  • Replied in An Alternative
    Yes, and one of those ways is to understand your current situation and set up the camera appropriately. I can't help but think of the movie "Arthur" and the butler Hobson. Search YouTube for ...
  • I don't own either, but out of curiosity I'm interested to hear what improvements you deem "obvious and necessary".
  • Replied in Thanks Truman
    I enjoyed reading your thoughts. I graduated from Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. Ansel Adams once taught there. It was during his time at Art Center that he and Fred Archer codified ...
  • I think you missed my point. I wasn't speaking specifically of AF, but of attitude and approach to photography in general.
  • I'm all for modern AF technology and I've love Fuji to get to the point I can select the left eye or right eye of a fly as the AF point, but goodness! I wonder if any of those that are fussing have ...
  • Replied in Very Nice!
    Lovely set and great theme!
  • Replied in I Agree
    Notice my qualifier. I do not know, but would like to know what the real world difference in AF speed is between Fuji and others known for better AF speed.  I'd also like to know what percentage ...
  • Replied in I Agree
    The early X-Trans were a learning experience.  It seems their software wasn't as advanced as their hardware and they could make fairly significant improvements via firmware.  I bought an X-E2 that ...
  • Replied in Walter Mandler
    I'm using several Canon FL and FD lenses on my Fuji cameras and getting great results.  I also use Canon EF lenses with the Fringer Pro II.  The Canon EF 135L is legendary and works great on my ...
  • Replied in Walter Mandler
    My incarnation is the Dual Range version and it is a lovely lens.
  • Replied in Walter Mandler
    I own the legendary Walter Mandler designed Summicron trinity (35, 50, 90mm) lenses.  Their "magic" comes from a series of design compromises. Compared to modern lenses, including modern ...
  • Replied in Wonderful!
    These are great. We want to get to that part of the UK. The weather really adds a moody dimension. Landscapes with bright sun and puffy clouds have their place, but I really like landscapes with a ...
  • I concur, set your 18-55 at 23 mm and use it on a photo shoot. Don't change FL.  Then do another photo shoot @27mm. I have absolutely no balance issues with the 18-55 on my X-E cameras. If you hold ...
