    The 90mm is a lovely lens but only you know if you would use both of the 56 and 90mm. Again the 100-400 is a top notch lens but it is somewhat heavy in Fuji terms but if you want or lust after 40 0mm it's a no brainer
    But of a curve ball this one but what about an infa red filter? It gives you shooting options during the hot sunny days. Drawbacks are the long exposure times the filter gives you. But it's a cheap way to.try it and if it appeals maybe a pro1 converted to infa red.
    Should mention with infa red some lenses just aren't suitable due to hit spots. The 10-24 is not good not sure about your other lenses.

    100% American George, love it. As a child it used to fascinate me when trains ran along roads, still does I think!

    The Tornado passed through Settle this morning on the first of its scheduled runs along the Skipton to Appleby run. The first time a scheduled main-line service has been steam hauled for 50 years.

    Bath time.
    Fuji X-T1 18 - 55
    Took some pics on the way to the shops today.This year I have set the goal of manual focus for shooting.
    It's tricky, at times.

    I would go for the 100-400mm but I do like to shoot a bit of wildlife when I can but I have used it for landscape and even close up shots of poppies it would complete a excellent 4 lens kit covering everything from 10mm to 400mm :):fuji: plus you have the 56mm prime

    +1 from me! Fantastic image. Have you tried a mono conversion? It seems an obvious possibility and would make the (mild) flare pretty much undetectable too, I would have thought.

    Great light, and it's shots like this that actually suit flare, imo.

    love the image, hate the white background and drop shadow:p I know its a personal thing , but I think it takes away from a great shot. its a strong image that doesn't need a "prop"

    Thanks Andrew. The lighting conditions were challenging, especially getting focus lock with the bright headlight.

    Just got a "new" lens. A Cosmogon 58mm f2, which is, I understand, an export version of the Helios 44M made by KMZ for the US market, which must have been pretty small! I'm quite impressed with it. This was taken at f2.

    Dear XT 2 owners

    I've recently bought the XT2 and took it to do some wildlife ie birds, ducks etc to try out the focusing on fast moving objects. Not the best results! In fact a tad disappointing.Perfectly sharp on static subjects! What do you recommend to use for the best focus settings?

    Nothing special just a candid street style shot taken at Folkestone Kent UK of someone doing a survey and to me it looks like she's On The Prowl.

    Practise! Centre focus point set to a suitable size. If using a wide point/area, make sure you've got a small enough aperture to give sufficient DoF. AF switch to C.

    This could be of use to you.
    http://fujifilm-x.com/af/en/

    I set AF Mode to wide tracking, focus button to continuous, shooting mode to CH, and tweaked the AF-C Custom settings to what I thought appropriate. Centre focus point only.
    Two days after release date I went to Oulton park with @Mr Perceptive of this parish. No time to practice, just underwent a bit of RTFM.
    Came home with this, that is moving faster than a duck...

    I took nearly 1300 shots in the day and kept a small proportion of that. You must accept that there will be wastage.

    There are rumours that some guys shoot Formula One with the X-T2 and the 100-400 but I've never seen any results from there.

    Do you use either of the four focus tracking settings?
