It works great for me, I was just pointing out that the newer AF system is definitely an improvement.

This. It misses AF every now and then when it's very dark, but usually it's when it's dark enough that I'm not even sure the shot would've turned out how I wanted anyway.

Good news..will continue the search then. Thanks, I appreciate the reply

Didnt get out last weekend for T&F or lacrosse but had some time yesterday to shoot some lacrosse.

I will say the 50-140 and 100-400 performs very well with the new focusing system. I'd be interested in a 300 or so fast telephoto prime to get some better separation for field sports though. I should probably start saving now haha.

The one near me in Cardiff used to be terrible, I haven't been for a few years. A guy in a suit used to pounce as soon as you went through the door -
HIM "Can I help you sir"
ME "Yes, I'm looking for a 2 stop grad"
HIM "Yes, someone will be with you soon" then he'd slink back behind the counter and wait for his next victim to repeat the process. So frustrating, then the person serving you wouldn't have a clue either.

I used to use Jacobs instead. Much better stock, and they employed photographers who's knowledge was excellent. Made me feel comfortable and resulted in me parting with thousands over the years.

Whinge over :lol:

Off topic - How is the Seattle and Vancouver's weather in early April? Maybe I should ask what the better times for a trip with family/kids.

Weather is unpredictable. April is the month were the days start getting longer. Mild weather but not your T shirt weather.

I know Vancouver has it's stretches of dry days but we also get a fair share of shower/rain in April. The phrase "April showers bring May flowers" applies in Vancouver.

I do love our City as it's mild all year round.

Mediterranean climate here. Last part of June through mid September we have seen very, very little rain over the last few years.

Nice one, just watch the pole.

Thanks! This one was a random outtake. My ps skills are not good enough to remove the pole. :oops:

We'd be happy to have you visit, Ireland has a lot of beauty to find if you can avoid the rain & even if you can't it's still nice.

Back of the camera just after setting up for our first shot, WR is handy for me it seems.

This photo is pretty cool. It screams "get out and use your gear" well to me at least.

Fantastic capture, one of the most genuinely expressive images I have seen in a long time.

Had some folks from Cirque du soleil over at my work place and I got to shoot the event using Fuji XT1. I was nervous due to folks saying Fuji is not as good as Canon. Since I only have 35L and 85L, I couldn't use Canon and also wanted something light weight for my bus ride. Took 14mm, 23mm f1.4 and 50-140mm f2.8. The whole setup seemed lot less weight than 5dmk3, 85L and four of the PW Plus IIs that I carry in that bag. Now lighting was quite good so that helped. Wish I had 16-55mm f2.8 as that would have been only lens that I needed.

Unfortunately not that stock Fuji. But it's too late now as I bought a x100T last night :-P

Just got the 18mm in. One thing I noticed...

on the X-Pro 2, I use the OVF with the little EVF window in the bottom corner. I've noticed, and this is when close up, that the focus square gives me the green light to say it's locked on, what I see in the little EVF doesn't match up with what is in the focus square.

any suggestions?
