Nope. Too poor for all that, I tend to sit 2-3 generations behind cutting edge.
I could have sworn you did, may be I'm thinking off someone else. I've only just upgraded to the X-T2 myself from an X-T10 and whilst I love it, it isn't light years ahead for anything other than speed, tracking etc. I'm still glad I went for it though and this will do me for years no doubt.
Don't rush. When the x-t3 comes out all of a sudden the x-t2 price will take a big nose dive well into the sub £500 category for minters.
Don't see that price becoming a reality for some time tbh, but the reasoning is sound in terms of their being a price drop and more market choice as others decide to upgrade.
I think even with the X-T3 release, X-T2 prices will remain higher than that at around £600-700 for minters as you called them.
Just my opinion though.
The only thing that would make me consider the upgrade would be if I needed the better low light performance. Even then it would be probably be the X-T20.
Thank you George, much appreciated. This one has somehow snuck into Explore, which is always nice
A couple from my trip to Sweden at the back end of last year...

Some beautiful colours in both shots Ash, nicely taken too.
^^^ Thanks Dave
Thanks George appreciate it.
Very nice colours and lighting.
Really like the one with the bridge the lighting is perfect!

Very nice Fujigraph Sir, really like the gentle lighting in this shot, and the overall presentation.
Cheers, had to wait a while for a person to pause in just the right spot for the light!
A quick shot from University of London's Senate House Building this afternoon. Lovely art deco place that doesn't look to have been modernised since it was first built. This is the main entrance hall (Crush Hall) and has apparently been used in many movies, often as a stand-in for New York/Gotham. More in a dedicated thread in Architecture and Urban.

Beautiful photographs. Well done
The first shot is brilliant! The second one I would prefer is you were closer to the guy and the bike, it feels so far away.
Very nice Fujigraph Sir, well composed with uprights upright, good colour & exposure.

Lovely Fujigraph Sir, nicely posed and exposed with good lighting, with the added interest of the little out of focus toy in the background.

Thank you again George. I’m fond of this one myself. Thanks for the detailed feedback as always
Freezing cold and blowing a lot on the sea front today. X-T2 + XF 35mm f2 Brighton Bandstand.
That`s a lovely shot Nick, for me though I would not of had the toy in though.
Very nice indeed. I think that the toy adds to the image. However, just a small nitpick... I would have liked to see all of the tail included. Lovely photo though.
@Diamonddec Agreed re the tail. Schoolboy error!
@Dave70D i have some without the toy, just thought it added a bit of depth. But again, thanks for the comment
Anyone tried or bought the new Fuji XC15-45mm f/3.5 OIS lens ?
wOOOw Ash, utterly love this urban/industrial look, right up my street!!! Superb photpgraphy Sir..! Which lens was used....?....XF10-24mm..?
This is particularly good to hear, because this afternoon my X-T10 developed the same issue! Hope I get the same result...
The Bokeh in this picture really highlights the power of a Fuji prime - well done sir!
Arrgh! Unlucky! You can fix it temporarily by orienting it the right way and covering it with a bit of tape...
I made the enquiry via the "contact us" bit on the website before registering for a repair. Hope you get the same result.
Yeah, I would have liked to be closer too, I was at the full length of the lens I had with me and he moved out of the light by the time I got closer
Thanks Peter! They were both shot with the 18-55 (the only lens I currently own) and both at 23mm (the first with me pretty much lying on my arse though!)
All I will say is have a play with the different AFC scenarios, personally I find number 2 works well as a starting point. But it's like anything new, you need to learn the characteristics of how the scenarios work, and your choic of lens makes a difference too. I don't have the 50-140, which is arguably the best lens that works with the AF-C system, but the 100-400 is fine, and the new 80mm f2.8 is good too.
If George can use the X-T2 for professional motorsport, there's not much wrong with it.
Pretty impressive captureenses with only one lens in your camera bag Sir, I'm impressed, neat.
Been down to Cornwall this weekend to see my Brother. Took advantage of a break in the weather and shot over to Porthcothan beach this morning.

Thanks Steve. I love Cornwall and love the colours here. More please..
Some lovely photos from all you guys,makes me glad to be a fuji shooter again
Trev,you must try and do something about your insomnia
It looks like that cyclist is carrying a little person, in their cycle basket.
A quick question for you Fuji guys. I’ve just received my x-t2 and am wondering which battery’s and cards you would recommend? I know cheap isn’t the way to go but what’s the best deals? I’m only an enthusiast . I’ll have one card for Raw the other JPEG. I was looking at a 64 for Raw and a 32 for JPEG. Any suggestion?
