after having the 50f2 for a couple of days , I can say I would bet it all that there was defintly something wrong with the 56 I had..

all I've heard about the 56 is that it is a sharp lens .

and my new 50f2 is more impressive than the 56 I had .. not that anyone was saying that the 50 was no good .. but even my 23f2 seemed sharper than the 56 , and while most reviews say the 23 is fine , there are more than one or two reports saying its sharpness is not that impressive.

had a portrait session that went well even though it went all kinds of wrong :lol:
wind wreaked havoc on my lighting as well as the models hair ..

but overall very satisfied with the results ..
my biggest complaint with sony was skin tones and how hard I had to work to get them to look satisfactory .. I know that getting them to look awesome is possible , as there are some very capable fellas on the sony lounge thread that do great work ...but I struggled , that was one of the reasons I bought the 80d
anyway so far with Fuji I've been happy with skintones, and after todays portrait session even happier:-)

That's the beauty of Fuji .....skin tones is easy peasy :)

Sony is just more contrasty and vibrant. Every camera brand is different. For example I liked my olympus colours over my Panasonic when I used M43. Canon is simply a comfort zone for me so I just know how to work canon colour in post. I had a Tamron 15-30VC for a short duration of time and the colours from that lens was soooooo good to my eyes.

a few more from this session..

few things I learned.. I need something better for lighting .. probably getting an xplor600 , the ad360 is good for waist and up shots in full sun but full body shots are not working..
also eye af .. well just better off sticking with single point . hopefully this is something that Fuji will fix in a firmware upgrade sometime in the near future and not make us wait for the xt3 .
it is so much easier to concentrate on framing when eye af works on demand

Also i'm usually only using a single light ,, want to start leanring how to use a 2nd light as rim or hairlight to create a bit more separation when in darker enviroments .
need to start taking notes during shoots..
need to plan better...

so much to learn still -?

but having fun in the process:-)

So the eyepiece finally went missing from my X-PRO2 a few weeks ago so off to Fujifilm for repair. I just picked it back up and they changed the complete eyepiece. Glad to have my own one back even though I got a loaner X-PRO2 to keep me shooting. Hopefully that will be the end of the mysterious vanishing eyecup.

The xplor is a great light, if you like to move around a lot on location it's a lot to manage with no assistant.

The "Thunder over Michigan" Airshow happened over Labor day weekend. I live just a few hundred yards to the east of the airport but most the action goes in a north-south direction so while I got to enjoy a few planes from my backyard most are still a decent distance off. Next year I might rent a 100-400 but this year all I had was my 50-140 with my x-t2.

The Blue angels came directly over my backyard a few times so I got the best shots of them. This was actually my first time shooting planes so I leaned that I need a lot more practice on panning with slower shutter speeds to show prop motion. Unfortunately most of my panning shots didn't come out so frozen propeller shots it is!

Go with the extension head that turns it into a pack and head system. That's what I plan to do when I buy one near the Black Friday sales.

Finally upgraded to an arca Swiss compatible ball head. (Oben BE-117) Since I added the hand grip on my X-T2 it doesn't play nice with an old slik quick release plate and my peak design sling.

I was constantly talking the quick release plate off to use my peak design and changing it back to use the tripod. What a hassle, now my life is easy I don't remove anything. Random, but yeah lol.
