tt321: Did not say anything about compatibility (or not - I guess not) with focus bracketing.

Jim, I don't know where you are coming from or which camera you use, but the present Olympus OM-D E-M1 does Focus Bracketing & Focus Stacking (in camera). If you want to know more then go here & read about it.

Obviously, the new E-M1 Mk II will be even better.

Really Jim? Then set the time longer!
EDIT: Of course you won't move the camera between each bracket frame, will you? ;) That would ruin it! :p

Now I'm "confused"? Your point does not seem to be relevant to the question, because the flash is compatible, so long as it is set to Manual & the focus bracketing Flash Charge Time is appropriately set (to allow the flash to recharge between each discharge, depending on the distance & output power level needed) so that each frame gets the same light, exposure.

Stack - Merge. Same difference. You know what I meant! :p

Jeff Peterman: That is a really good price for a twin lens macro. If it would work on a Canon body, I'd buy one!

If the TTL pins are isolated then it should work in Manual on any camera, but for macro photography I would want TTL although Manual is also needed at times as well (for fixed settings).

It should work particularly well with Focus Bracketing, but you also would need to specify the charge time between frames in the Focus Bracketing setup though, but as WGChsv says, you would need to use Manual Flash since each frame has to be exactly the same exposure to merge successfully.

EDWARD ARTISTE: $2k. M4/3.

Lawd have mercy.

So much for the smaller, cheaper alternative to dslrs....ouch.

@JeffUlti
You can still by your E-M10 Mk II at quite an affordable price! What are you complaining about?

I'm sure they have legitimate reasons to put the price up but come next year the price will start to look a little better (hopefully). They usually start out with an additional bonus such as a grip & battery etc, to make the initial purchase more worthwhile but later on, with lower prices, there are also bonuses or cashbacks, which is how I bought my E-M1 6 months later (June 2014). I hope something like that happens again.

It was never going to be cheaper just because it's smaller. If you want a toy, go buy a toy.

Ross the Fidller: Richard, to quote you, "We're delighted to be able to report that the X-T2 supports charging over USB and includes an external charger, making it easy to ensure the camera is ready-to-go, whenever you need it."
Where does Fuji show that in their technical data? Can you give me a link?

Just another point on this; it is interesting that the X-T2 owners manual (page 285) has this:
"Connecting the camera

[ ! ] Loss of power during transfer could result in loss of data or damage to the memory card. Insert a fresh or fully-charged battery before connecting the camera."

One would have thought that if it can actually charge the battery that it should at least be able to provide sufficient power to support data transfer as well. ? ? ?

Thanks Richard. I have read similar elsewhere in which they also mention the omission in the data from Fuji & how it will only charge the battery in the camera while the 9V supply is there to charge (& power continuously, I guess) the battery grip with two batteries. I was curious because of criticism of Olympus for not doing the same (USB charging) in the E-M1 Mk II (unless it will work without official confirmation?).

Anyhow, thanks for coming back with your answer.

@Richard Butler. It is "X-T2 supports charging over USB" that I am trying to find. Can you please provide a link to their technical data that shows that?

GarysInSoCal: CERTAIN DEATH to any decent (or even great) DSLR is 'very limited lens selection'. Sorry Fuji... hello Nikon D500!

@GarysInSoCal
Why the ignorant bitterness? Are you afraid these smaller cameras without that ancient flappy mirror system are going to poo all over you?

Canon1966: I shoot Canon, but I would consider going for this one if it were full frame. The look and design of this camera also really caught my attention.

FF? Pff! Go for the medium format Fuji instead!

I can see 'die hard' traditionalists being unhappy, because they won't be able to use the OVF. :D

Like I said above, he was probably reading another forum or thread & commented on the wrong one (I've done that once before).

Why is everyone so concerned about the "utilized" argument, when it is not relevant to this page at all nor the Ricoh/Pentax site that I can tell?
Is it relevant?
My feeling is he lost track of which forum he was commenting on.

Damien Demolder Maybe he's ranting to his invisible friend or else that is what he is reading (in his own language) in Google Translate. Just a guess!
Or another guess, he was replying to two different forums at the same time & this was intended for the other one.

In reply to:

mosc: You know that 12-100 f4 makes me think of the days with 35mm film where you would often just set the aperture to f8 and forget about it, along with obviously fixed ISO film, and only worrying about shutter speed. 24-200 at the constant equiv f8 this offers is certainly a much less demanding thought process on shooting. Auto-ISO in M mode with the aperture fixed at f4 and a nice shutter dial on the E-M1 and you're really off and running all the way from wide to 200mm telephoto.

We are now very spoilt with the high ISO's that did not come with film & with challenging shutter speeds there were no Image Stabilising either.
