Apparently putting it into high performance mode really speeds it up, but really eats the batteries. I'll be curious to see how it performs!

Why won't theses mirrorless camera makers who do grips make the grip hold 2 batteries so that you can run 3 batteries in the camera at once. They're not heavy or big batteries! They keep doing one in the body and one in the grip.

Not sue where you got that information, the X-T1 battery grip is a standalone battery, there's no external batteries placed in it. It's a big chunk of energy.

56mm f1.2 on a 1.5x crop = 84mm f1.8 on FF. Not sure you'd really be getting much out of the deal given that you have FF and a very sharp 85mm f1.4 now. It would be marginally smaller, but that's about it. Pictures would not be any better than what you are taking now. Probably slightly worse.

these mirrorless cycle so fast, it's hard to guage when to jump in. The xt1 may be the first in line towards a mature product..... maybe. I'll be waiting till sony matures, I want to screw around with vintage lenses and not have to deal with the crop factor.

Not really, f/1.2 is still f/1.2 for the sake of exposure. And a very good lens is just that... a very good lens, the 56/1.2 Fuji is a very good lens. The DOF differences between it and FF are marginal for that FL. I bought into the full frame mumbo-jumbo too, but now that I shoot regularly on both systems I can tell you first hand that the differences in DOF are marginal past 50mm.

So get a speedbooster. I have a Kipon BavEyes (speedbooster) in EF to FX mount for my X-E1 and vintage lenses, I've only had it a couple of weeks, but so far I'm very impressed.

Held one in a camera store last weekend and didn't know what to do with it. I'm leaning towards a second hand Canon 40d, with most likely a Sigma 35mm 1.4 setup.


Sold my first DSLR & lens = 6D (24-105L) & (40)
Now what prime should i get with the 7d mark ii?...

When you need shutter 1.2 is still 1.2.

I agree I wouldn't gain anything but the product sure does catch my attention.

Actually you are mistaken, I have the X-T1 and the grip ( as it was free in Canada with preorders!!). The grip takes its own battery and then you can still keep another battery in the normal camera slot. 2 battery meters show up on the LCD, I'm not sure how it drains them (in what order) as I haven't used the camera enough yet.

I misunderstood how it worked then, but doesn't it take a stand alone battery which doesn't go into the X-T1 body? My understanding was that you don't even need to remove the battery from the body, you just attach the grip and you're good to go.

Talley please help me understand!

You got rid of your 6D with it's superior low-light/noise ability for the larger/heavier 5D3... due to its superior AF system necessary for your childrens pictures. Now you want to revert back to a smaller/lighter system with an inferior AF to both those cameras? What am I missing?

From what I've read the gap is seriously narrowed between CSC and DSLR with the X-T1, but I agree with what you're saying. For me though, the X-T1 is extremely attractive, especially now that I have a EF to FX speedbooster.

He is trying to compensate lack of skills with technology.

I understand and, to a certain extent, suffer from a7R lust, but am missing the appeal of the XT1 - what am I missing?

An amazing sensor, an amazing body with amazing features, looks, layout and most importantly an amazing lineup of fantastic lenses. Also an unmatched level of customer and product support which carries on even after a product is discontinued. Rent an X-T1 for a bit, I bet you'll see after that ;)

Um, no offense, but your comment boils down to "everything about it is amazing!" without offering any specifics. Not terribly informative nor does it seem terribly objective. Who is it aimed at? Why do they want it?
