    Something highly unusual today

    I truly like your first photo Alan. It is indeed almost impossible to see young people without playing on the phone. The XF 90mm renders beautiful foreground and background bokeh.

    Amazing Cape Town Astrophotography Image

    Thanks for posting this image and link. I don't mind the guy included in the picture but sure this is getting overused. The cool thing of the story is that he had to revert to the backup camera with slow lens and make it work. He certainly did a good job.

    Birds seem to be seeking me out....

    Alan, I like the colors and composition - a lovely little bird. How do you like the handling of the new lens?

    Congrats Mike on your decision for a Fuji camera. I'm sure you won't regret it. You'll certainly find good support in this forum. Wishing your health getting better soon.
  7. For the past three years I've been using the Fuji X system in parallel to the D800. I'm very happy with the Fuji system. I never really liked the D800 and I was still looking for a fast camera for weddings and events. Just before christmas I've replaced the D800 with the D750 which is much better for my needs. I'll be using both systems in parallel for the next years. I was thinking of fully switching to mirrorless many times but have decided to keep both. Nikon might bring a mirrorless system for the 100 year anniversary in 2017.

    Fuji gear rotation again

    Thanks a lot Alan, Akira and Anthony, One of my applications for the 50-140mm plus TC would be airshow photography. It's good to hear that the Fuji seems optically at least on par or better than the Nikkor. That's what we have come to expect by Fuji. Let's wait and see wether the next gen Fuji AF can close the gap to DSLR sufficiently for dynamic shooting conditions.

    Fuji gear rotation again

    Hi Alan, How would you rate the 50-140 vs say Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8 ? If the XPRO-2 AF is really a step up I might consider completing the Fuji lens lineup and sell the Nikon. My Fuji lenses so far: 14mm; 16mm; 23mm; 35mm; 56mm My Nikon lenses: 20mm f/1.8; 35mm f/1.8; 60mm f/2.8 Micro; 85mm f/1.4 I'm a prime guy but I guess rather than getting the 90mm I'll look into the tele zoom.

    Fuji 16Mm Vs. 14Mm

    It's good to hear your replacement lens seems to work ok. I'm looking forward to see some pictures and hear how you like the 16mm. Enjoy the new lens!
