    Thanks, that's very useful and in line with what I'd heard. There's one being auctioned on eBay at the moment with faulty OIS. As I don't plan on using it much off tripod, that might well be a good choice if other bidders don't fancy it.

    I like the Zeiss lens on paper, but in practice it's hard to find one for sale inside the EU, never mind the UK.

    Thanks again!

    A bit more from Harris, for once it's not a seascape. :D Light would have been better earlier, no doubt, but I liked the curve of the path and the house at the end of it.

    That’s a nice Fujigraph Sir, nicely composed with a good lead in from the path/road, and I like the way the house stands out to make it look as if its kinda spotlighted.(y)

    Just a simple Fujigraph taken at Dungeness Kent UK of one of the many old boats on the beach that have just been Left To Rot.
    I'm also working on a personal project called Things Left Behind and this will be one of the shots included.
    (And just for @Mr Perceptive I've used a lens other than my beloved 55-200mm) :D

    X-T2, 10-24mm Lens, 1/600th @ F8, ISO-200, Monopod.

    Does anyone own an X-T2 and X100f?

    Is getting the X100 worth it over say the 23mm f2 to go on the X-T2?

    Cranking them out lately George! I must confess I wasn't a massive fan of your street stuff (I'm not a fan of street in general unless it's something really special like riots or something), but your macro stuff is incredible and I'm liking the land/seascapes too. Always nice to see a quick sentence or two about them too. :)

    Thank you very much for the nice words, today once I set up the X-T2 I thought every shot I take I will just take my time and not rush, after looking at the Jpegs I am well chuffed and think it`s the best day I`ve had in a very long time.

    “The landscape type stuff is really something I’m just trying to get into a bit on the strength of being inspired by toggers on this thread but its never really apealed to me that much, street stuff is really what I like doing most of all and macro when I’ve nothing else to do”

    Ian I have an X100F, an X-T2 (and 23mmF1.4) and I bought my wife an X-T20 with 23mmF2, so I effectively have all three 23mm lenses on X-Trans3.

    23mm is definitely my favourite general focal length!! With regard to image quality you get what you pay for, the X100F being the softest wide open, and the 23mm F1.4 is definitely the sharpest at F2. The 23mm F2 has the fastest AF and has WR.

    I love the X100F and if I had to have one camera I could certainly live with it, it has other benefits compared with the X-T2, namely the discrete small size and the leaf shutter (which is super quiet) - the OVF is also useful when you are conserving battery power! as is the inbuilt flash and ND filter, both nice to haves. That said its AF is not as fast as the X-T2, though still pretty snappy, and I think 'extra' sharpness of X-Trans3 has made the best of the X-100F lens. Its a lovely thing.

    I tend to take the X100F if I'm going out and about (especially city visits, etc), but tend to take the X-T2 if I'm on a photographic mission.

    Whether its worth it for you depends on how you want to use it, or if the weight bothers you. The 23mmF2 is not heavy and does add too much to the 'bulk' of an X-T2 (and offers a fully WR package)

    Perfect response. My GAS was telling me I need an X100F. Head tells me I just need the 23mm f2.

    The head may win this one. Thanks for the in depth reply, David.

    The X100F is just so much more discrete than either 23mm f2 or f1.4 on either an X-T or X-Pro. (just to throw a spaniel in the works). And with the right pocket it's pocketable.
