    Thank you George for the nice words :) I think I will be doing more indoor shots when it`s chucking it down.

    I have been looking at the 50mm f2 as I want a Prime lens first, but I also like the 35mm f2, so I think I will be reading up on both to get an idea of what one :)

    Just a simple Macro/Close Up Fujoto of a Feather of some sort laying on the grass in my garden. Thought I'd think outside the box with this one and knock out a highish contrast mono version.

    X-T2, 60mm F2.4 Lens, 1/500th @ F5.6, ISO-200, Handheld.

    No noticeable noise on mine, but you should see the effect in the EVF on a half-press of the shutter button.

    Mmm, slightly concerned as I see no difference on a half-press etc.

    Mark I was in af-s mode so it was a case of following the bird and shooting 3 or 4 shots and they where all in focus, I was quite surprised thought I might get one in focus with a bit of luck.
    The joystick came in handy as well made it a lot easier to adjust the focus point.

    So guys, you've tried pretty much everything out there - off on my first abroad holiday in well, forever with the family and am planning on taking this lot:

    X-T20 (with little grip)
    50mm f2
    18-135mm
    Samyang 12mm
    Manay many SD cards, batteries and cleaning rags.

    I'll always be sunny by the look of things.

    So a good choice or would you personally take something else?

    What like a little screw on one? Any suggestions, I'd really not thought of that as I have a million tripods and never use them, but yes I can see that.

    Think it's about £15 from amazon and Jessops sell them too. Took it to Paris with me and loved using it. Easily fits in a coat pocket or small bag.

    Great little thing it is too, I got one ages ago for the other DSLR I used, but it will come in handy for my Fuji Xs :)

    I'd not even thought of a little tripod

    I have one too, it's great, pretty sturdy for it's size. Not great for big lenses though, unless they have tripod collars

    no i just used mine for the odd bit of wide stuff. nothing too big. was comfortable with a7rii and zeiss 16-35. so will certainly do the job with Johns x-t20 and samyang.
    also works well with mobile phone holders.

    and here with my old x-70

    I've got a Pixi too, it's amazing! Used it twice already this year :D In all seriousness it fits inside my rucksack (obvs!) and saved scratching the silver on the underside of my camera, when taking long exposures on seawalls etc.

    Yeah, it's a great little wall/bin/rock top tripod. I've used mine for some low to ground macro. It's also useful for video, when you really don't want to slug about a big heavy tripod just for steady video capture of the kids or whatever.

    Had a lovely Fuji moment at the wedding on Saturday.

    I'm chatting with the vicar as I do pre-wedding and she says yesterday was the last straw for her due to a photographer who essentially drowned out the ceremony with his noisy shutter constantly going off, she asked me to refrain from photographing during the ceremony itself, first kiss etc aside.

    I very briefly show her the X-T2 shooting in ES mode...photography is back on! She came up to me after the wedding and thanked me for how discreet I was. She was still surprised when I told her I was shooting throughout the whole ceremony.

    I did have MS switched on for the key bits, so the aisle, first kiss, rings etc to be on the safe side because of the artificial light, but even then the X-T2 is extremely quiet (noticeably so vs. The X-T10 I also had with me).

    That's beautiful. Such a peaceful scene, and the timing of the Swan is spot-on.

    Thanks Chris not sure about the skill part just a matter of being out there

    Thanks George appreciate you saying so.

    Thanks very much appreciated.

    Cheers Stephen would have preferred the swan swimming towards me and maybe a bit further to the left but I suppose Im just being picky.

    Thanks Dave I'm pretty sure you had better weather than we did, been pretty crap with the odd nice spell.

    Lovely and sunny here, but very breezy so tried the Raynox150 on the XC50-230mm + X-T20.
