    XF90mm f2 does anything, very versatile.

    Very true, so much so that it will stay on my X-T2 for good :)

    Glass all day, no need to update what is an amazing body. Get the 23 or 35 f2 - awesome

    Still thinking of returning to Fuji, and as part of the decision making process, obviously the cost of replacing glass has to factor in. It goes without saying that the most used focal length without doubt has to be in the 24(28)mm to 70mm ish range (equivalent). That being the case, what are the relative thoughts on the Fuji 16-55 F2.8 vs the diminutive Fuji 18-55 F2.8-4 ?

    I did have the latter last time round but I mustn't have got a good copy as mine wasn't overly sharp. Taking sample variation away, is the 16-55 really worth the extra dosh and size/weight over its smaller cousin ? I appreciate they are two slightly different lenses with the 16-55 being a red badge pro grade lens that is both wider and a constant aperture, but whilst I've never held one, it does look like a beast, and despite my reservations over my previous sample of the 18-55, most people rave about it's superb optical qualities ?

    Thoughts please ?

    If you need constant F2.8 than the 16-55 is a no brainer, but is fairly big and weighty compared to the 18-55

    If you need stabilisation then the 18-55 is a no brainer - or wait for X-H2

    Optically they are both good and at F8 etc there is/should be very little difference.

    It really depends on what your shooting requirements are.

    I shoot a lot of natural light in my studio so I went for the 16-55 with my XT2, it is brilliant wide open and feels balanced when I use a gripped body.

    I also have the 18-55 which I use for video when it is required.

    Of the two the 16-55 is the daddy for me.

    It can feel like a beast when you first hold it but you soon get used to it. Compared to some of the Sony / Sigma glass it's lightweight. 16-55 all the way for me, I had an 18-55 for a short time and couldn't get on with it, always felt something was lacking on sharpness.

    Don't see a lot wrong with the Mk3 sensor. Why not wait for the X-H4? Who knows what that will have? :D

    I might go for an x-t3 now. Thinking of trading my d750 in and getting the 23 f1.4 to start with.

    It seems it's not the quickest lens to focus, but is it good enough for family/kids etc? I would go for the F2 but coming from a FF sigma art I might miss the dof.

    My favorite lens, and on the camera 90% of the time. If you`re used to using 35m on FF you won`t be disappointed (y)

    Are any of you guys using the metal hand grip thing not the power booster grip, Just the one with the built in tripod plate. I know it`s not cheap for a lump of metal, but seems pretty clever in design?

    Yes. Use it on the XT2 all the time. Got mine used from WEX for a reasonable price and I'd argue it helps with the handling. Having the arca base plate is an added bonus.

    Cheers mate.
    It`s more for the plate than balance as I don`t have any heavy lenses other than the 80mm macro. Besides my triopd plate is always on the camera as it is.

    If its just the ARCA bits you want then consider one of the Chinese plates, as they offer vertical composition as well, should be some on eBay, several of us have the 'Fittest' plate.
