I'll probably go back and process on my computer but I've been a bit lazy and doing it via my phone. Partially lazy and partially needing a new computer and too cheap/broke to build a new one ha.

I've been finding myself using the Fuji apps on my smartphone to quickly copy jpgs over, and then using Lightroom mobile to do quick edits so I can share. :D

I also decided to put my 18mm up for sale. I rarely take it out. I'm not much of a wide angle shooter. It is a great lens, just not one that gets a whole lot of love from me.

I can put the funds toward something I'll use more.

I know its even wider, but try the 16mm f/1.4. I'm not much of a wide angle shooter either, but the 16 seems really special. The closeups alone are very addictive.

So I had a buyer for the 18mm lens. I came home to get the box and paperwork, found the warranty card and realized it's a grey market lens, as the warranty card states "International Warranty". Bummer. That'll probably be a deal breaker. New, the lens is $599. Used prices on Amazon, Adorama, and BHPhoto seem to hover between $320-$400. I had accepted a PayPal gift price of $275, so she's still probably getting a bargain, but grey market seems to be a taboo phrase.

I would be upfront with the buyer, but that price still seems fair.

Oh certainly. I informed her with a picture of the international Warranty card. She was still fine with it. It's getting shipped out tomorrow.

Onto the next purchase. :D

Nothing to be up front about only difference between grey market and US is the warranty.

The used buyer doesn't get warrantee coverage, afaik.

Used lenses from my local store or B&H don't tend to include the card.

Under $300 is a good used price with Hood.


C&C always welcomed...
On my images, of course, and on my words as well--as long as it's constructive :).

Pre owned buyers should be concerned that the lens works properly. I see no reason why person would be concerned that it is grey market if they are buying used.

I have the 16 as well as the 18. The 16 is amazing but I really like the character of the 18mm, plus it small and light. It's more often on my camera for day to day then any other lens. The only thing I wish it had as faster AF.

Just picked up a rokinon 12/2. Need to buy a 27/2.8 too. Planning on a Disney trip and only want to take the 12/18/27 combo for the trip with the xe3 I’ve preordered

I’ve also got the 35/56 but don’t think I’ll take those


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....

so for years I've always had manual flashes. Even when I had Canon, I had a 580 EX II, but my off camera flashes were always manual since they were cheap, and I liked the control.

I STILL own a couple first gen yongnuo yn-560 flashes, still going strong. Last year I "upgraded" and bought a Cheetah v850 and a Flashpoint Zoom-Lion flash (essentially the same flash), as well as a flashpoint streaklight 360. All manual, no TTL.

Last week I bought the Flashpoint TT350F as I figure for the rare occassion I have a flash on camera, and TTL would be beneficial, not to mention I could use the flash as a transmitter for the two above-mentioned flashes after I also bought the corresponding r2 receivers for them.

So it's been many years since I've done anything with high speed sync. I always used ND filters or adjusted camera settings to make sure I was within sync speed of my off-camera flashes. So I'm curious as to whether these manual flashes are able to achieve this now using the R2 system?

Also, thinking about picking up a flashpoint xplor 600 for Fuji. I see they have an HHS model for around $450, and a TTL model for over $700. I'm wondering if the TTL version would even be worth getting since I'm always in manual mode. But it's one of those things I have to ponder because, if I don't get the TTL version, it's something I'll never have.. whereas if I get the TTL version, I don't have to use it in TTL mode.
