  1. Impressive stuff. Looks like I'll have to start saving again!
  2. Really looking forward to your experience with the 55-200

  4. I voted Fuji. Although I'm heavily into the Nikon system, I was impressed enough by comments regarding Fuji from some seriously credible forum members to take the plunge with an X-E1 - I've not been disappointed. The size and feel of the cameras is close to my old Nikon FM's from the 70's and feels great after F4's, D2's and D3's. For me it's Nikon for long lens FX work and Fuji for pretty much everything else. If Nikon made a large sensor FM equivalent mirror less body with F mount I'd be at the head of the queue to buy it.
  5. Ray I finally sorted things out by deleting my cache, cookies, and history, followed by uninstalling and reinstalling the app and downloading all the editions again. It's a great publication and hopefully my upgrade experience is the exception rather than the norm. Deleting cache and cookies can be a real pain when a bunch of passwords an favourites has to be re-entered. However, as I said earlier, this is a first class publication. Your efforts are appreciated.
  6. Ray Great magazine but something has happened in the switch to iTunes. Upgrading after a prompt on my iPad moved the icon to the newsstand but only the 2 older editions of the magazine went with it. The icon for the latest version appears along with a download prompt but the magazine fails to download. I consistently get a timeout notification. The usual re-boot process hasn't sorted things.
  7. Alan, It was largely down to your experience shared over on NG that convinced me to take the plunge. I recently acquired a cheap Chinese adapter and tried my wife's Nikon 55-200 on fast moving subjects as a proof of concept exercise with very promising results. I look forward to your evaluation of the new Fuji lens. For the moment my D3's are only used with big gun NIkkors on a gimble set up where fast AF is required. Thinking about it, years ago I was able to do everything with a pair of FM's, so perhaps I just need to re-learn the long forgotten MF techniques. If the next generations of body from Fuji have improved AF, which better suit some of my photography needs, then I too could make the switch completely. Exciting times.
  8. Like others here, I too took the plunge and bought an X-E1 (w/ 18-55) a while ago. After only 1 day of trying things out, the 35mm f1.4 and a Samyang 8mm fisheye were ordered. I've been so impressed with the output that my Nikon D2X, 17-55, and 10.5mm fisheye have now gone to a new home and my enthusiasm for the hobby has been totally revived. I can honestly say since getting into the Fuji XF system my D3 and D3S have hardly seen the light of day. Carrying a kit that fits into a small bag is absolute heaven compared to the literal pain of carrying equivalent spec Nikon pro level gear around, especially since there is no difference in quality. My only gripe is the ease with which the exposure compensation dial can be inadvertently moved, but like anything new it's just a question of learning to look at the camera body or viewfinder icon before pressing the button.

  9. Ann Thanks for the reassurance, your answer came while I was posting an answer to the previous post
  10. Ilkka Thanks for your answer. My concern stems from an experience a few years ago when I was given free version of Capture One Lite with the purchase of a sandisk memory card. This was great for limited use with my non Nikon camera files. One day I was confronted with a screen saying the software was no longer licenced and a link to "update to latest version" message and not insubstantial cost request. I would not put it past a corporation as big as Adobe to pull a stunt like this so that I see a similar message 3 years from now disabling my software and pointing me to a high priced cloud based version. As long as my current version continues to work for as long as I chose then I'm happy, but I can't help but be suspicious when an update occurs a few weeks before substantial licensing changes are proposed.
  11. Apologies all for previous posting errors What I wanted to ask was, does anyone know what today's Adobe CSXS InfrastructureCS6 1.1MB update is all about? With the on-going debate about Adobe policy, I'm getting jumpy about anything that may potentially render my hard earned perpetual licence version of CS6 useless at some future date should I chose not to move forwards on a subscription basis
  12. please ignore
  13. Today my installation of Adobe Application Manager popped up with an update for CS6 It's identified as Adobe CSXS InfrastructureCS6 1.1MB With all the dialogue around Adobe's plans to change PS licencing, I'm super cautious regarding

  15. Michael I'm always surprised by how few comments your postings receive. I find the quality of your photography and attention to detail truly inspiring.
