off the subject heres a shot I did with my old xpro1 and the fujinon 60mm macro 2.4.

This shot was taken standing on the footpath leaning over my neighbours front fence..... No fancy macro setup....Just point and shoot.......I just wish this lens focused better as it is the worst lens in all my lens's for fast AF acquisition. It even hunts in broad daylight its that bad. However when the AF actually locks on to subject its image quaiity is second to none. Very much a love hate relationship with this lens.

My 35mm f1.4 was also super sharp. And regarding ISO, that shot seems to be a pretty good light to me.

who uses AF with macro shooting?
Also why all the bickering between the 35 1.4 and f2
They are both good. Everyone wants something different. I like my 35 and wouldnt want the 1.4 because of the size and portability and how light it is to carry around. Sometimes I wonder if i should have just got the 50 f2 over the 1.2

I think issue is typically when folks say that cheaper, slower lens is much sharper wide open than the faster lens stopped down 1 stop. To me the 35mm f1.4 had the best colors, even better than the 56mm f1.2. Choice are nice and I really wish Fuji would come out with that 33mm f1.0.

I don't think of it as bickering, I think of it as discussion... I mean, this is a forum. I don't like seeing hyperbole, all it does is mislead the less informed. Realistically the biggest differences between the f1.4 and f2 are as you pointed out, size, weight, and AF speed... vs a stop more light.

As for weight and size though... we're talking about a difference of about 20 grams... not really a valid concern in my opinion. It's also barely any longer and really only wider at the front end.

I definitely get going with the f2 for the improved AF and WR though... heck, I've considered getting one myself simply because I don't have any WR lenses... but I'd be keeping my f1.4 as well ;)

Question for the Godox/Flashpoint folks:

I picked up an X-T1 for an upcoming trip, and I'd like to know if this camera will trigger my Canon specific R2 Pro transmitter? I don't expect TTL to work, but it'd be awesome to have remote manual control.

Is it safe to try, or would i potentially risk damaging the transmitter or hot-shoe?

I've used my Canon specific Yongnuo flashes on my Fujis in the past, no problems in manual mode.

Here's a XF35mm f/1.4 shot with someone out of the safe zone - check out the detail on his T looks plenty sharp to my eyes. Yes at 1.8 and 1250ISO but closest I can find without connecting to the server.

I stopped carrying about Pixel peeing a long time ago and dont care about sharpness as much anymore. Pretty much any modern lens will deliver great results unless you are into zooming in to 100%+ and look at it under a fine tooth comb. These days I care more about how accurate the lens is and how reliable it is
