Geez, no wonder I can't sell my X-Pro 2... got people selling their XT-2 for $675

https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1501893


I was thinking about selling the xt2 as well //

but yeah those prices dipped down quick a bit before the xt3 was released... and then even more after.

I paid $900 for mine (new) .. so I guess not too bad since I usually assume 35% loss if in good condition.

But I think i'd rather keep it for now... maybe it'll be the "beater camera"... rain, snow, mud , beach etc


Xh1's took quite a dip in price as well


I got a couple of Cameras and lenses ...Canon, Sony, Fuji, Pansonic, pentax

I was thinking of selling my X-Pro2 and the 35 f2 and picking up an X-t3.

I mean, technically the X-Pro2 is the more expensive camera... but I get what you mean.

Unfortunately even though the X-Pro2 is the more expensive camera it's the less popular one. I thought about selling mine as well, but now that I'm seeing the prices I'll just keep it and deal with the eye cup that keeps falling off and the weird metering issue I get from the viewfinder... I love everything else about it, but those two issues are driving me a little nuts -?

I think she's amused by the way the 60mm focuses ;).

Nice images.

Even though I knock the lens for the way the AF works, it does render well.

Why is the medium format section so dead on this forum? Everywhere else I hang out, there is a lot more buzz about the new GFX announcements.

I finally got to try the 50r in the store and it is sweeet!

X-T3 has a little something to it, least it feels like it does but that feeling is probably just the newness of it all, if you know what I mean... Could also be that I'm trying hard to just use C1 for all cameras now.

A rare capture of my daughter. I'm out and not connected so screen shots are the only way to 'export' an image from Capture One, Lightroom lets you export the smart previews.

I honestly don't get all the hate for this lens still. On older bodies like the X-T1, yes, it's a little slow. On my X-Pro2 however, I don't perceive a difference between it or any of my other lenses at normal focal distances. I imagine on the X-T3 it's even better.

Even at macro distances it focuses just fine, it's only slow when going from macro to a longer distance (which I'd assume is true of any macro lens, but I don't really own any other macro AF lenses)

More from the 60mm

It's no artsy shot (testing HSS with the Godox TT685 and X Pro F controller), but here is one with the 60mm on the X-H1 - raw converted in dcraw, some thises-and-thats in Photoshop.

So it's not the speed of focusing for me. It's the dramatic size changes if it needs to hunt through its range. It can be distracting and I don't like attention drawn to the gear.

With candid images I want the subject engaged in what they are doing, not what I am doing. With portraits, I want the subject engaged in our interaction or what I have asked them to have in mind or being "in character," not distracted by the weird thing my gear is doing. "Is that normal?" ;)

But it is, absolutely, a very good lens. If I didn't have the Zeiss 50mm macro (more costly but works electronically on the Fuji, goes to 1:1 and has no change in length focusing) I might have bought it before the 80mm came out. If I had neither today, I would probably opt for the 80mm.

Gave in and purchased C1.
I used it for the couple of weeks that adobe didn't read xt3 raw files..

and then once they did I went back to LR.

suddenly the same images seemed less.. I dont know, less detailed? (though that could be different default sharpening that each program applies)


but also colors ,


I used the trial version for a good while mostly for portraits, I'm still not good with it but getting down the basics..


Also ,, that 8-16 is tempting , but damn that price..


im looking to get a pair of zooms for landscapes/cityscapes.​.. and I was considering the uwa ,, but yeah that price tag, I know a lot is in that lens , but I just dont shoot uwa that often for me to feel its worth it to me.


the 50-140 + 16-55 is most likely the way i'll go.

Keeping an eye out for the 50-140 on FM.. although after what happened to ??(who was it again here? where you had to send in for repair and you found out that previous woirk had been done and the previous owner didn't disclose it)

I'm always a bit nervous about buying used but lately most lens purchases have been used, ..

Fully stopping to use Lightroom, just if I need to locate an image as I haven't ported over any catalogues, as I did today. I reworked the raw in C1 anyway as it's keeping my my mantra of letting go Lightroom as it's the only way I'll move on. Decide I'm a non smoker, oh I mean Lightroom user...

The 8-16 is an amazing lens to shoot with & so, so good optically (there are a few images up on my blog & Jonas Rask has loads from a concert up) but it is a lot of lens. If you don't really need to go quite as wide as 8mm the 10-24/4 is a good option, but the 8-16/2.8 WR is far superior in its design. If you are just planning on shooting 'scapes you could always snap a two or three frames in portrait orientation and stitch them in post. That works out great for most things, the portrait I dug out today was a two frame stitch (photoshop to the rescue). And yes the price €€€ I think I did the chin drop IRL when Fuji told me the price of that 8-16. I was very much up for ordering one, sold my 10-24 and all but lately I'v been thinking about the 50-140 also. So many things to consider but a couple of new hand painted canvas backdrops will be my next big spend, probably.


Fuji: X-PRO2, X-T3. 16/1.4, 18/2, 23/1.4, 35/1.4, 56/1.2, 90/2, 16-55/2.8, 50-140/2.8.

That was my 50-140...

repaired... but they didn't fix the threaded insert for the tripod shoe...

"I received the lens back yesterday (50-140, SN#55A02515). Opened it up and the visual inspection looks great.
The hood now fits perfectly as it should. Thank you.

Tried to take the tripod mount off and the same problem persists… the threaded insert backs out and binds the assembly while trying to remove it.

I’ve not mounted to the camera and taken and tests shots yet but I’m trying to figure out why this simple threaded insert problem was not addressed.
I paid almost $500 for this repair. I’d have thought something as simple as this threaded insert would have been fixed.

I NEED this lens. I make money with this lens and if I have to send it back again it’s going to kill me as I’ve already not had it for over a month.

Please get back to me as to what we should do now.

Also I notice in the repair notes that there was a previous repair (RP1612150112) that was made by the first owner.
Could you please provide me the information as to what was repaired that time?"


Hello Scott, sorry about the delay, I was out of the office. I spoke with the repair supervisor and he informed me that by design those inserts are not locked in. It can be modified to lock them in but it is not intended to be and if there is an issue with those threading in the future it will complicate repairs.

Then how are you supposed to remove the mount when one unthreads itself and binds the screws?

The threads to my screws are getting worn out quickly and I really don’t remove the mount that often.

That response makes no sense whatsoever.

I own a machine shop, I know about HeliCoils. I have never left them to freely rotate in any application where the bolt threading into them was to be used quite often.

Unacceptable.

Also, could you please forward to me the previous repair ticket for that land that I inquired about (RP1612150112)?


I can not hand out the work order of a product with another customers name on it. This rp number seems to have been put on the paper work in error and does not relate to your lens. If you would like to speak the to repair supervisor you can call in to the repair center and ask to speak with Bob Metekski. "

I'm not happy with the way this was handled. i will call the repair supervisor but I've been too busy in the meantime. Fujifilm service is really not that great IMHO. If I was a working pro I'd be furious.

Was on the fence about selling mine after buying the 80mil but I used it last week and was quickly reminded about its versatility.

I have the 50-140. It's a great piece of glass. Sadly I only really use it during Spring and Fall soccer seasons. I really should give it more love.
