Just got the 18mm in. One thing I noticed...

on the X-Pro 2, I use the OVF with the little EVF window in the bottom corner. I've noticed, and this is when close up, that the focus square gives me the green light to say it's locked on, what I see in the little EVF doesn't match up with what is in the focus square.

any suggestions?

When you're focusing really close its better to just use the EVF. The parallax detection gets less accurate when you're focusing very close.

Gotcha. I was wondering that, but wanted confirmation from other users of the 18mm.

I think all my lenses are like that on the X-PRO2, having to guess were the AF point is going to be based on distance is something I don't enjoy. Am I doing it wrong?

There is paralax and, the closer you get, the more the effect. The camera tries to compensate and the latest firmware update (if you are not on it) may help.


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

Day drinking, day shooting, then more day drinking, then day processing. Shoot, I did it again with more day drinking. What could go wrong?

Today I was teaching a class on studio photography at my work place and I had my XT1 with me, so took a few shots.

XT1, 50-140mm f2.8, we were going to setup back ground paper but somehow like this shot just with white wall in the bg along with the seamless roll still hanging there.

IMAGE: http://www.bobbyzphotography.com/img/s5/v123/p2222013939-5.jpg

Medium softbox in horizontal position and two strip boxes behind the model on the sides for the rim light. Shot without the bg paper.

i have received by X100T..few indoor test shots and i see it focuses noticeably slower than the m43 that i'm used to. I guess it could be due to the camera choosing ISO3200 in "average light" ?

Will see what its like when i leave the office at lunchtime but i hope its not representative

Some from a chalk festival the other day. The middle one I am not sure if I went to far trying to edit the color to focus or not...I like it because different and the yellows were striking, but probably a bit cheesy of an edit.

If it makes you feel any better.....my Canon 5dmk3 and even 80D have a much faster responsive "single shot" AF than any 16mp fuji body. Accuracy (with calibrated fine tuned AF) wise I still feel my dlsr's to be more responsive in capturing candid moments. I'm even saying my dslr's single shot is definitely more responsive than my new Fuji X-T2.

I know with my previous X-E2 and X-T10 I used the slightly larger "square" focus as the smaller "square" seemed to be slower in acquiring focus. Seems I catch more blinking eyes with my fuji gear than my dlsr. I notice this alot more during events documentation. Family moments my 16mp fuji gear had "just good enough" af speed. X-T2 has been a definite step up in AF speed but I still do not feel it's on par with single shot AF. Continuous AF the X-T2 can keep up with my 80D and 5d3.

Your M43 gear is extremely fast in focus. Your M43 will be a benchmark that will definitely make you notice differences in speed.

You could have purchased a panny 20mm f/1.7mk2 and had a 40mm equiv pancake for your E-m1. That is a different focal length but it's a small package with your existing M43.

At least you'll get a good taste of Fuji files. After using my X-T10 I sold every piece of M43 gear I owned. The 100T might be a pleasant eye opener for different looking files.

A recent storm dumped quite a bit of rain and the plug holes at Ladybower Reservoir have been draining the excess water since. Each one is 80 feet in diameter and it's a little unnerving looking down into it. Bamford Edge can be seen in the background with a dusting of snow.

@ AlanU thanks, i had the P20 - it was shocking, in low light it just hunted and never achieved focus. I'd say the X100T is better, definately - if the results are similar then all will be good

I would agree with Alan, I think the Xe2 at least but probably most of Fuji system in general across all lenses is like half as fast from getting focus to the shutter taking the shot as a dslr. That said, I really don't have many missed focus shots at all, and I feel like the AF system is in general pretty darn good. I think the coolest thing about Fuji is that they truly will keep being innovative, and keep advancing things. This was shared on another forum and if anyone here has 40 min I found it to be an interesting watch.

http://www.channelnews​asia.com …orm/fujifilm/35​01396.html (external link)

Basically it talks about Fuji as a company and how they took market disaster (End of film) and capitalized on it by applying their technologies from film to other fields. In it though, the CEO basically flat out says that they will always make film, and they feel so strongly about photography that they consider the company to have a moral responsibility to both preserve and advance photography. It explains why a company making a ton in other areas actually has released what we all know is something substantial from a tech/user standpoint in the X cameras, and why they update firmwares etc. It is a great watch, and I really feel like they have a philanthropist approach to the photography division of their company, and they are doing it for the love and tradition and still will push and embrace technologies. Watching it really made me feel like this is not a fad small camera system for me. It made me feel like I am going to be a Fuji customer for life and I believe the X cameras that led to the new gfx, are only going to keep leasing to more X stuff and so on. Not saying they will have best af out there one day, but saying they seem like they will have more releases with real upgrades than not.
