    Yes I use the Lee Filters app, problem was I didn't have a shutter remote and didn't realise at the time that Bulb could be adjusted in steps up to 15 mins

    Yeah very true! I just like to have the full control over what exposure I want, I'd often adjust by a minute or 2 from calculations subject to what the light is doing... probably don't make much difference but I feel better lol

    Does anyone happen know if there is a official or third party eye cup that's shallower than the one that comes as standard? I found some images on google of some eye cups that are circular and seem fairly shallow looking, but I cant seem to see if they fit the X-T2 or where to get them. :thinking:

    These really are very good Dave, and the lens seems to be performing well too. The busker shot is a cracker.

    Hmmm fair enough, using the standard cup I can't quite see the corners of the frame and it gets to me :)

    I suppose it hinges on how your specs have been fitted. Mine have always been sat quite close to my eyes.

    Thanks Uncle. Sorry for the slow reply - been away for a few days. I couldn't get the 55-200 working at all with a Raynox I'm sorry to say. Not sure why. If you Google Raynox there's a site where you can calculate magnification etc.

    My diffuser is just a cheap mini soft box with packing foam over it. Can give more details if interested:)

    Thanks for your reply. I'll investigate the Raynox site you mention.

    Would definitely appreciate more info about the diffuser; particularly a picture of it if that's possible.

    Cheers

    Impressed with how the little XT2 and 16-55 handled the dappled light and the confined space - we were nearly touching elbows and I had to lean back and hide my knees to get the shot, yet there is no noticable distortion. Very pleased with my choice of the 16-55.

    The original X-T1 eye cup was virually flat. A modified version was brought out which was quite deep, far deeper than the standard eye cup on the X-T2. There was a demand for a raised cup to stop extraneous light interfering with what was seen through the viewfinder. It was retained on the new model, although in a shallower form on the T2.
    I'm not sure if your link is to the original flat eye cup - looks like it could be, but look at the price!!!
    I wear specs at times - especially night - and have never had trouble with the raised cups - in fact I use the deep X-T1 cup on my T2.
    Somewhere in my box of spares is the orignal flat cup, which I might be persuaded to dig out!

    I'm more surprised they're so late on the review. Also they don't mention anything about the known softness wide open when close focusing.

    Here's a link to the site I was on about:http://extreme-macro.co.uk/raynox-adapter-techniques/

    Regarding the mini softbox - I couldn't find the actual one but it's similar to this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UK-Godox-...dlite-Flash-/221831843715?hash=item33a6354f83
    I have added a couple of layers of packing foam which really help the diffusion (that's the 'home made' bit).

    Cheers

    Another confined space shot with the 16-55. Both of these hide shots were taken on the same day, under vastly differing lighting, it was overcast under the tree and the shadows were much deeper in real life (but a magazine over inks if the shadows are too deep, so you have to supply slight lighter than you would like).
    Both shot at f4 and around the 16mm end. No room for a tripod of any sort - hardly room for ME!
