    Another edit of Perch Lighthouse, this time pushing the split toning a little further and a slightly better crop (imo).

    No its not but a few nice things, its getting the af updates that the T2 got a while back, RGB histograms and more touch screen functions. This firmware for the T20 was the one announced earlier this year.

    Fair to say this and the original edit are splitting opinions somewhat, including my own!

    Maybe Fuji will reserve those features for the X-T30???

    They'll come eventually I'm sure, the T20 just seems to be an update behind the Xpro2 and X-T2.

    That said, hardware may become a factor the further down the line we get as it did with the X-T1 and X-T10.

    Hi All.

    Would welcome opinions on a little trilemma I have. I'm going to buy a macro lens for my X-T20 in the next couple of weeks. Got it down to three options:

    1. Fuji 80mm - 1:1, auto focus, sharp as sh1t but heavy + expensive
    2. Fuji 60mm - auto focus, sharp, light, cheap - only 1:2 but could do 1:1 with a Marumi (which I use and like already)
    3. Samyang 100mm - cheap-ish, sharp, 1:1 - no auto focus (not that I would use that very often), also quite big and heavy

    As much as I fancy the 80mm I am probably leaning towards the 60mm at the moment... any thoughts/guidance appreciated! :)

    I have only tried the 60mm and it is really awful in manual focus which for me is not acceptable for a macro lens.

    Also Zeiss does a 50mm f2.8 1:1 macro lens for the Fuji mount as well

    @dibbly dobbler And its very pedestrian in auto-focus, you have to send it a postcard and when it receives it it will focus - sharp though!!

    The 80mm has OIS as well which may or may not be a consideration.

    Thanks Gents. Been watching few videos! Current thinking:

    1. Fuji 80mm - just too expensive I think for a lens I would use purely for macro. Also I think the working distance is not that great?
    2. Fuji 60mm - point noted about poor manual focus, as this is what I would use most often
    3. Samyang 100mm - hmm, tempting. Used to use a Canon 100mm and loved it (no IS and used it on manual focus so no real difference).

    Both great shots @dibbly dobbler, really show off the colours well.
    My preference is the first of the two without the reeds in the foreground, but that's purely a personal preference.

    [​IMG]Football with FujiFilm - remote camera 1 by David Young, on Flickr

    First goal pic I've got with the Fuji as a remote behind the goal camera - shot with Samyang 12mm lens at f5.6 and shutter speed of 1/640th.

    Camera triggered with Pocketwizard Plus X triggers - one on X-T2 and one on my Canon 1dx - this is cropped in a fair bit but plenty big enough file size to print in a newspaper or magazine.

    Match is Dundee United v Falkirk in the Championship (second tier of Scottish football) - goalscorer is Thomas Mikkelsen.

    Loving the wee Fuji for this purpose - not quite the toy I envisaged when I bought it

    A couple more from my Italy trip

    1. Upper Podalla - a grab shot taken leaning precariously out of my daughter's bedroom window as the clouds rolled down the valley

    2. St Ilario - a recon shot at a place I want to go back to over summer. No decent light so I've processed the heck out of this to give it some life, but I think this composition will give something nice when the weather is brighter

    I originally processed this as mono, but decided I needed a colour version for an upcoming exhibition. Turned out quite decent, I think.
