My Fuji kit is continuing to grow as well... I seriously may end up selling my Sony kit if the X-T2 delivers on what everyone is hoping it will deliver on.

I really like Fuji, but there always been stuff about it that bothered me...

so far every Fuji camera i tried (didn't try x-pro2) feels really sluggish, especially the AF.
the stupid RAW ISO limit
lack of metabones like adapters
no ibis
on some models the feel of the buttons/controls.

but Fuji lenses are excellent.

It's a great camera. AF isn't the fastest but you can get by with it. Not exactly pocketable either but again you can get by with it. It's a really good take everywhere camera though and I absolutely love the styling. I've pimped mine with a lens mate anodised soft release button and thumb grip :)

You should do it already. The a7S sale will be nice to fund that xt2. When is it going to be released? I am interested as well.

It's a tad warm today. Here's what my thermometer reads right now on my covered patio. Each mark equals one degree.

I was always a Canon 50mm guy. Then after getting the A7 and eventually the CV40 I tend to prefer that little bit wider. The x100t (or s I suppose?) just looks to give that wider view with an f/2 and not a crazy amount of unneeded mega pixels.

good thing about my area is that it's still cool. Supposedly, today is the hot day, but I'm only getting 82 degrees (~28 C), and got a nice breeze going.

Yeah for family snaps it's perfect and the IQ is still there if you end up shooting other stuff with it too. I had a loan of my mates x100s before I bought the T and with the latest firmware it's pretty darn close. I considered just going for the S at one point but a few things swayed me (slightly faster AF, classic chrome preset and a few other things that i can't quite remember right now)

well compared to gene, he's getting 40+ C. Basically he's on fire :-P

You can probably leave out a cast iron pan outside in the sun and fry an egg without a stove.

28 C is quite nice, a little over ideal, but that nice breeze I've got going is pretty sweet.

I got my cars roof and spoiler foil wrapped yesterday. Decided to go for a very quick shooting. The last thing for now that needs to be done is to get some black rims too...

It was 109 outside on my lunch break. Yuck! Good thing I have a pool. I'm going straight in when I get home tonight.


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

This.

Anything over 25°C here in Belgium and I'm dying. My body isn't made for that amount of heat. That's why one of my favorite purchases so far is my portable air conditioner.  :p
