Just got my package right now. Very excited to dive into it. Have been busy reading up and re-searching more on the prime lens line up. I am looking into selling my Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 and EF 85mm F/1.8 lens and getting some X primes. I have not used these two lens much and they have been just collecting dust.

Are there any Fuji equivalent to these canon prime lens. These two are my favorite EF lens.

EF 135mm F2.0
TSE-25mm F/3.5 II. (This has been my favorite landscape lens )

After reading up more the electronic shutter it now makes sense the popularity of the fast prime lens.

No tilt shift in the fuji world.

The 90mm prime is probably the closest in a 135L "goodness". However some may have preference to the shorter 56 f/1.2 prime.

I've only got the 23/1.4 and 56/1.2 (on Xe2) - that pretty much gives me 35mm and 85mm in full frame terms.

The 23mm is okay, I think I still need to learn is quirks a little. The 56mm and me have bonded instantly :)

135L was one of my all time favourite lenses to shoot with & I held on to my 5D3 because of it [and the 50Art].
The 2/90 will not give you the same look as the 135L, although a very nice lens, it is missing that little bit of magic the 135L has. The 2/90 will give you the same framing, it is very nice all the same but I prefer the 1.2/56 over it. For the TS-E you can only adapt what you have and use MF. If only there was a speed booster for Canon glass to Fuji bodies, actually there is but I haven tried one yet to comment.

To me 200mm f2 IS has the look. I was really hoping Fuji release 200mm f2 or even better f1.8 for bragging rights. The 90mm f2 should have come with IS, not sure why Fuji didn't put it.

Yes, OIS would have been nice on the 2/90, even if f2 gives you one stop faster shutter then the 50-140 still have to keep the shutter faster than I would have with the 135L on the 5D3. Probably because it's a lighter setup. I it best to have 1/200 at least on the 2/90 to get sharp shots every time. Could do that at 1/100 easy on the Canon.

So whats the deal with the 56mm 5/1.2 APD lens. Its priced $400 more than the regular version. Is it worth it.

The APD fas a kind of filter in it that is supposed to render the out of focus bits 'nicer' you loose PDAF and a little light transmission, hence the two sets of markings on the aperture ring. I opted to get the non APD one but is you want to see some 1.2/56 APD shots see here: https://photography-on-the.net/forum/gallery.​php?lens=1658

To me I didn't see much difference between the APD and non APD versions. One of these days I am going to rent the APD version and do my own side by side.

Wow. Just finished reading the manual. I will definitely need to go over it few more times. I am amazed by how much functionality is built into it and the various dials on it. Menus seems pretty easy and simple to navigate once I went over it few times. I like how it allows you to customize all the buttons. I set my front Fn to AF-On. It was easier to use that instead of the traditional back AF-L/AE-L button for Af-On.

The fast battery drain was a bit of a shocker.
Also its going to take some time to get used to the grip. (My pinky finger keeps getting underneath the camera and gets sore).

Yep, a great camera, but I am always thinking "I know I can do that, where did I see it in the manual?" (LOL) Once I get all my settings where I want them I run into a scenario where I need to change them and then can't remember how to set them back. I end up reading the manual quite often.

My first introduction to the Fuji X system was a used X-Pro1 I bought on a whim for a 10 day trip a few ago to Disney. Yes, everything you've read about the autofocus on the X-Pro1 is true(read dead slow!) but once I got past the surprisingly short learning curve I fell in love with the camera. The image quality was outstanding. I liked the camera so much I rarely touched my 5D3 and L lenses the entire trip. Which got me thinking that it might be time for a change.

So as soon as I got home I bought the X-T2, 10-24, and 50-140 and sold all of my Canon gear. I don't miss it at all. And I know my back is going to love me on my next big hike!

I like your idea of using the front fn button for af on. I'm a huge fan of back button focus but didn't find any of the rear buttons located in such a way as to be comfortable. That being said, the focus selector joy stick makes placing the af point right where I want it a piece of cake.

The grip size definitely takes some getting used to. The RRS L plate has helped a lot, but it's still a whole lot smaller than the 5D3.

Do you have a link to a list of those that do and those that don't - I'm just in the process of changing and using the dial is like second nature to me - thanks.
