Here are a couple. Neither is anything special though. I haven't had a chance to get out and shoot much since making the Fuji switch.
One with the 100-400.

The XT-2 is a "Transformer". By that I mean with the 28 mm Pancake it is a concealable street shooter. Add the 100-400 (and possible teleconverter) with battery grip and you now have an amazing wildlife shooter, including birds (and Birds in Flight). I use it all the time for birds. I'm not at home on my processing computer, otherwise I would share one or two photos.


FUJI XT1 -> XF 10-24, XF 18-55, XF 55-200, XF 27mm pancake
6D -> Canon 28mm f2.8 IS, Canon 50mm f1.4, Canon 85mm f1.8, Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro IS
Canon 24-105 f4L, Canon EF 70-200 f4L IS USM, Canon EF 100-400L IS
7D -> Canon EF-S 15-85

How does it play with the tele converters ? ? ? Does it impact AF speed and IQ much ? ? ?
