  1. Thanks Viv, a two year journey back to a reasonably healthy state. The 50-140 and the 18-135 will go in PX for something else, at the moment I’m enjoying the primes when I can get out but I hate the cold weather and rain, roll on the spring/summer!
  2. Cracking image Alan, how much dust was there covering the X-T2?
  3. Thanks Dallas, a case small steps instead of leaps on the road to recovery, hence the long time!
  4. Ditto to what Dallas said, but where are the people? Super stuff Luc.
  5. Luc, I’m favouring primes at the moment so the most used are the 16mm, 23mm and the 56mm. The 80mm and 35mzm are new acquisitions, indeed the 35mm as of Friday. The 18-135mm and 50-140mm zooms which rarely get used will be PXed if there is to be an X-T3! Hugh, thanks yes health is improving, albeit slowly, I’m one of the lucky ones as my cancer has gone touch wood. Chemo really takes it out of you, but it’s gotta be done but the price is worth paying! 10-3000mm I’d never be able to lift it. Many thanks Erv!
  6. A list of my Fujifilm equipment, and I reckon I’m pretty well set now. Thankfully this means no more purchases for a while.

  7. Alan, as I approach my dotage, the need for some electronic trickery is becoming more and more welcome! I'm just not as steady as I used to be, hey ho. I'm very happy with my choice of Fuji X trans system and especially the primes but little OIS help wouldn't go amiss. Old age is beginning to suck, aches and pains interspersed with a little cancer is I'm afraid not so conducive to a steady hand, don't get me wrong I'm one of the lucky ones and have a lot to be content with! Luc's small sensor photos always inspire and please me to look at, because of the clarity and detailed sharpness I see. His answer of getting to know and be familiar with your gear and use it accordingly is right on the nail!
  8. Luc, on the Fuji specific forums I read there is a lot of clamour for an IBIS system!
  9. Dallas, Fuji X is APSC, trips off the tongue don’t it. Are you telling me orf agin, oh dear. Luc, I’ve noticed that most if not all your u4/3 photos display a very similar level of detail, impressive. Leading me to check the level of detail of my XTrans111 photos and I’m pleased to say I’m seeing a similar level of detail! Fuji’s OIS is of course lens based and this lens 23mm 1.4 does not have OIS, this is Rudesheim, Germany. This means that any fuzziness is down to me. Fuji is apparently working on an IBIS system for future X series cameras! Something is going to be announced on February the 14th! P.S. this was also PPed in Lightroom.
  10. I like this shot of the library Luc, amazing amount of detail for a cropped sensor. I could spend ages searching that detail. If you don’t mind saying what software did you use to process the picture?
  11. Seems to be one of the bugbears of “auto correction” maybe.
  12. Chris that’s OK just so long as you leave all them nasty spiders down under.
  13. Chris, do you mean cartilage? Alan, I take it by what you say that they are not the most dynamic of animals.
  14. The Wombat intrigues me, are they friendly docile creatures or am I being bamboozled.
  15. Chris, are you sure the last one is a Dingo? love the one of the girl cuddling a Wombat!
