  • Love my X-T4 and would be even better with tilting rather than articulated rear LCD for me, but not a deal breaker and that is territory that has been gone over. A lot.
  • I compared images from the previous V Lux Typ 114 with the FZ1000 in controlled circumstances and the jpegs were absolutely identical.  In fact the images from the FZ were marginally better ...
  • I recommend the Haoge grip with Arca plate.  Smaller than the one you ordered, permanently attached to my camera and works perfectly.  I think if you've gone as far as you have, you also need a ...
  • Perfect city for an X100. You'd get away with just taking your 23mm.  And maybe one longer prime around +/- 50mm (or the 16-80). Done!
  • I sold a bundle of Olympus m43 great to them in the UK a while ago, all in excellent condition.  The pick up was quick and easy, they honoured their quote and payment was fast.  It was a lot ...
  • The only thing I'd add is that a lot of comments here have been from people who own the Q/Q2, and I totally get why they use either that or the X100 but not both - the Q is a thoroughly modern camera.
  • Well I have the X100V and the predecessor M Typ 240. I also love the M and it does things the Fuji simply can't.  But that goes both ways and I'm keeping the X100V for sure - it's small and light ...
  • I would imagine all bets are off this year.  The supply chain is a mess, the chip shortage continues and Fuji (like many) is struggling to get inventory into shops.
  • Except for the bit about banding... The only way you'd not see that at ISO6400 in poor light is by crushing the shadows in pp.  Love the M though....
  • I've been on safari once, to Botswana.  At the time I had a Pentax with 55-300 plus aging Tamron 500mm mirror lens and a couple of small short primes for night and landscape.  Most of the time, ...
  • Pretty much what I've got, plus Nisi filter set.  The whole lot fits nicely in the Ona Bowery bag, which is a compact and simpler set up than the Think Tank Retrospective.
  • I'd fully expected this lens to be a bit...meh.... But looks like I may need to eat my words.  Sounds like it may be a very welcome addition for the X mount and interested to see more of your ...
  • Not sure it would be politic for a German company to make an announcement on 11 November, which is Remembrance Day for WWII.  Leica had a period heritage from that era actually, but I'm sure they ...
  • I think this is spot on. A DPR test is unlikely to have much impact in Pentax's main marketplace - Japan - where reviews will already have been available for some time.  The remaining world market ...
  • I love manual and zone focus, which is why I have some M equipment, and a couple of MF Samyang lenses for my Fuji system.  But for modern ILCs where speed and accuracy of operation is important to ...
  • I use On1 with my Fuji files and I'm pretty happy with it.  It's relatively easy to learn and use but has a lot of features.  Worth trying the free trial version to see how you get on.  As others ...
  • Some I've enjoyed include: SMC 20/4 M lovely rich colours from a comparatively small lens SMC 28/3.5 K which is as good as everyone says SMC 35/2.8 M nice standard (ish) lens on APSC if you find ...
  • Excellent…. Time to buy a big bag of popcorn and get ready to sit back to enjoy the fun 😀
  • Replied in Leica Tl/M240
    My other IL camera is an X-T4 and I'd highly recommend it.  There are some excellent X mount lenses.  Ultimately I enjoy using the M more when I want to be immersed in photography, but the Fuji is ...
  • Couple of unprocessed DNGs below - should be downloadable from the gallery so you can see for yourself what it's like.  A quick look above the books on the lower bookshelf shows the banding.
