loving this new X-T2. The menu system is much better than the X-T1, the shutter seems more responsive, the high ISO from just playing around ISO 12800 seems as good as 6400 on my 7DII and X-T1. I LOVE the push lock for the dials. That was one thing that drove me crazy trying to change the ISO on the xt1. the buttons feel better, the screen resolution is sharper.

I never use that dial. I shoot with manual. I hope they remove it with the next body release.

I hope it never gets removed, it's extremely useful.

ISO is a trivial setting these days in my opinion. It basically doesn't effect the look of your image up until after 6400, I leave mine on auto pretty much all the time unless I'm using artificial light or the rare occasion I use shutter priority.

The EC dial makes on the fly adjustments thoughtless, don't even need to move my hand, just a quick flick of my thumb.

Plus, if you only ever use manual then the dial literally does nothing... so why remove it just to appease the few people who never use it?

I love my X100F. The one thing that has kept me from taking the final step and getting an x-T2 is the long glass I have for my Canon. I"m not an out and about kind of wildlife shooter. I'm a sit in a blind and take a pic of the critters kind of guy. I've gotten used to that Sigma contemporary 150-600

What are the options for Fuji shooters at that length? The $1900 for the 100-400 is a bit daunting, but I'll be able to cover that by selling some of the Canon glass.

What experience do you X-T2 shooters have with longer glass?

Very nice. The pay phones and man in the light-colored suit brought to mind Tom Wolfe, who just passed away.

I'm not waiting on Fuji glass. I kept my Canon telephotos. I'm simply waiting on the 1 or 2 adapters that have been produced to become more available and affordable. So far, they seem to be working quite well. Well enough for what I would use them for. But basically it allows you to use Canon lenses (EF mount) with full electronic support on the Fuji system. I have an X-T1, it would be great to have my 300 F4L IS and 150-600 to operate with it. I kept my 1D just for my telephotos. As soon as I don't need the 1D, I won't have a Canon camera anymore. But I kept several pieces of Canon glass (including macro). I absolutely would love to use my macro lens on my Fuji. Just waiting on those adapters a bit longer.

Very best,

On the X-PRO2 the 100-400 is a little big but works great, didn't try it for BIF as I'm not a birder

On the topic of the Samyang wide lenses for Fujiilm, snapped two walking home just now. You can see just how much wider the 8mm is, both were taken at f/8.

12mm

FYI for anyone having and issue with the x-t2 4.00 firmware update.

Fuji has removed the update from their website and has put up a 4.01 update which is just the 3.00 firmware so you can revert back to while they work on fixing the 4.00 update. Looks like they are also going to delay the updates for the x-pro2, x-h1, and gfx because of this.

Very best,

Just received the Fringer adapter yesterday tried it on a X-T1 with a 50 1.4 , 85 1,8 and 100mm 2.8 macro. Quite impressive the
things they can do today EF lenses with a aperture ring. Will be trying 100-400 II on a X-T2 should be better than the X-T1. Price
shipped is $325.00 and the way there selling you may have a long wait for the price to come down.

Yea, I'm just waiting to hear how it does with a 150-600 and the various 300, 400L, etc.

Ideally I'm just waiting to see one come up used here in the USA. I'd rather not pay the initial full price and wait for the shipping over the pond.

Very best,

Ordering the fringer soon.

Id love to try the fuji with sigma 18-35 1.8 and the 50-100 1.8
Both were awesome lenses on canon 80d
I've tried the 18-35 on the xt2 and xh1 ,, but with cheapo adapter, so only usable wide open
