You get the dual display in the X-T also if you want it, I just like the eye relief of the bigger screen especially at night.

When my workflow reaches a certain level I will add a second body. I might grab an X-pro2 or X100f.

Don't mean to break the flow but the raf files untouched really are so good looking. This is just loaded up and zoomed in 2:1 no sharpening.

Get the X-Pro2 - Receiving one myself tomorrow ( after jettisoning the X-t2 a few months ago ). I have plenty of batteries and ... it takes what ? 10 seconds to change one ...

I will say you can miss once in a lifetime moments less than a seconds. 10 seconds can be an eternity........

I've had times where I thought I had enough juice and embarrassed as I held a dead camera as an event suddenly needed more photographs.

Casual or posed stuff you can easily get away with 1 battery.

When your workflow reaches weddings you should deffinitally have a second body, just in case you drop your lovely little Fuji down a flight of stone steps as the couple walk out just after getting married :cry:

That way you can keep shooting. X-E2 was OK after that fall but the EVF packed in later on, still haven't gotten that fixed but it goes to show you can never have too much gear but you can always have too little. Personally if you are shooting professionally you should always have a backup with you, just in case, as then you are not waisting everyone else time and effort.

Kim I just cringed after reading that story. And yes a second body actually will come sooner then later. For weddings and events I have been renting a second body but it’s time to invest in a backup.

Yea, me too...

Was shooting with the 5D3 and 135 at the time and the X-T1 on the other arm with he 35/1.4. The X-E2 + 18/2 was on a capture clip on my belt I knelt down on a knee to get a shot and the X-E2 just popped off and scuttled it's way down the stairs. I think the 18/2's hood took the hit initially. Still got the shot though ;-)a

I left Canon and started out in the Fuji world with an XT-1, which I still own. When the new models came out, I opted for an X-Pro 2, and I love it. I will still hang onto the XT-1 as a backup body because, well, I was happy with it, and when the XT-2/X-Pro2 came out...it didn't self destruct and render itself useless. Both have an EVF which is great, especially when it starts to get dark, but I also like the OVF, which has it's downsides when you start to get lenses real wide or telephoto.

I just got an unexpected bonus from work that's coming at the end of the month. I had debated if I wanted to upgrade my XT-1, but I think I'm going to go ahead and get the 50-140 with the 2X teleconverter for my son's soccer games (which the 50-140 by itself should be a great portrait lens as well where my passion typically lies). :-D

Of course with my X-Pro 2...definitely going to have to do straight EVF with that lens lol.

I know, but the window and overall view seem smaller than that of the X-Pro2's ERF to me... that's a feature I thought for sure I would love on the X-T1, but I honestly kinda hate it. To me it's much more useful to just use the whole EVF with peaking, but I prefer the ERF in the X-Pro2 even to that for anything 18-60mm.

I see this straw man argument thrown around a lot, I never buy it. You're telling me that you can't find a "safe" time to change a battery during a long critical shoot? I just don't buy it. I've not once been surprised or caught off guard by a battery dying, not once that I can think of (even with the awful battery meter in the X-E1 and X-E2). I've shot lots of day long events where I'm shooting constantly and yet this hasn't happened to me. I can always see the battery meter and find a good time to safely swap a battery (just like I do for lenses).

If you miss a shot due to a battery failure that's honestly 100% on you in my opinion. If you know your gear, you know when it's time to change the battery.

I bought my X-T1 specifically to use as a backup camera, super happy I did. Beyond as a backup, it's just super useful to have 2 (or 3 in my case) bodies on you during a wedding with different focal lengths attached.

I'd recommend just dropping $250-400 on an X-E2 or X-T1 for the peace of mind. I got my X-T1 with the battery grip and a couple of batteries for $350. It's silly how cheap that camera has gotten, so much bang for buck! :)

I'm giving that lens a lot of thought myself... I started working for a new gym and they want me to do their team portraits (I used to do them for another gym I worked for years ago with my 6D) and my friend wants me to shoot his wedding next month... might use the funds from the team portraits for the 50-140 and just fork up the cost up front for both shoots. Still haven't made up my mind...

XT2 vs Xpro2...I would wait till the new firmware is out before making a call. :)

If you want the OVF option, Xpro2 is the way to go. Otherwise, advantages point to the XT2. For me, the OVF option wins. So I favor the Xpro.

The firmware upgrade will significantly narrow the gap (tethering, improved AF, 4K support), but the XT2 will maintain EVF size, tilt screen, battery grip option, etc. at a lower price point.

Nice to have good choices.


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

Trying out my old 28-300 I had forgotten about. This is at 300mm and f/6.3 at about minimum focus distance. Tiny depth of field for f/6.3

A couple of shots when I was testing my Godox system. I'm going to have to order another TT350 though, it never did turn up again when I lost it -?
