3, 7, and 8 would push me to the x100 series. Not having to fiddle with lens will push you to be more creative too. And it will make an excellent backup camera if you ever needed it.

If you've never given the hybrid finder a real try, you definitely should. For me that's definitely the biggest factor. I don't think I could ever part with my X-Pro2 and X100... maybe one or the other, but I couldn't lose both because I just enjoy using the OVF that much... and I seriously had no interest in the hybrid finder when I bought my X-Pro2... go figure :lol:

I can't get my head around the ovf. Tried using it again tonight and cut the heads off all my subjects. I need to spend a bit of time and read the manual and try and get my head around parallax and why the frame lines are incorrect when I frame my shots.

Are you using the AF corrected frame option? You definitely should be if you aren't. The parallax box will also adjust according to focus distance on the X100T and X100F, you definitely shouldn't have any problems with framing. You could also try using the ERF with the full view option, so instead of having a zoomed in view to check focus you could use it as a quick check on your framing/exposure.

Ahh sounds like I don't have a setting on. I have the frame guide showing then when I half press it jumps to a completely different position. I really need to read the manual as haven't looked into this properly and gave up after trying numerous times

So I bought the Flashpoint TT350F, as well as R2 receivers to replace the 433 mHz receivers I have on my "older" FlashPoint Zoom Li-On v850, and Cheetah Light V850.

I wanted to get something a little more substantial than the little flash that came with the XT1, that I've used on rare occassion with the X-Pro 2, while at the same time doing double duty as a remote trigger for my off-camera flashes.

So it took me a while to get the TT350F to connect with one of my flashes, but finally did. Am I only limited to A,B, and C? With the 433Mhz system, I had, what, 16 channels? Now it seems like I only get A, B, and C to show up on the TT350F.

Yes only 3 controllable groups..if you want more than that than an x1Tf controller will be needed..

ok, thanks. I currently only have the TT350F, a Flashpoint 360, and 2 v850 flashes that are in this family of being wirelessly controllable, so that should be fine for now, especially if I'm using the TT350 as the controller.

A couple of shots testing out the 7artisans 25mm f1.8 while on holiday. Quite impressed for a £60 lens.

The Wonderful Barn, near my house, was built in 1743 by the widow of the famed Speaker Conolly the builder of Castletown House, as relief work for the locals who had fallen on hard times.

Last minute Photo shoot for a friend of my sons .. hes trying to create his own clothing line.. (hat and hoodie)
in the rush of things I forgot to bring the bowens mount adapter to use modifier with ad360II.. so the lightings a bit harsh as all I used was the little diffuser it comes with and a sheet of diffuser (that's part of rapidbox) draped over for further diffusion.. not ideal but better than bare light ..

some thoughts on my experiences so far with the 23.. and I only have the 50 (and briefly the 56) to compare with within Fuji lenses..


It struggles in less than ideal lighting.. BUT.. the camera confirms focus.. yet it focus failed ..

does this a lot more than the 50.. so much so that when I used it tonight .. I had to chimp constantly to make sure proper focus was achieved ..
tonight isn't the first time I've had this struggle with the 23..

the 50mm f2 performed like a champ tho!
occasionlally missed focus .. BUT .. considering lighting conditions.. I've had the highly regarded canon 24-70 2.8 mkii fail occasionally in this sort of lighting

How far did you have the light? Night photography with a speed light is ideal, I like to have the rapid box as close as possible, maybe even in the frame then I can clone it out later.

6-8 feet ?

don't remember exactly but something like that .. yes , if I had the rapid box setup typically as close as possible .. even , if like you said slightly in the frame..

but with the 360 and only the outer sheet of the rapid box draped over it .. if I brought it any closer he ended up with crazy hotspots.. so I decided on further back but a bit too contrasty looking

So the 50/2 confirms focus in low light noticeably better than the 23/2? That's a nugget of info that's been escaping me.
