Evening Guys,

GAS got the better of me today.....I went along to WEX to pick up a £20 decoration ring for my Olympus 40-150 f2.8. Got there and it was their Open Day........I know, I can here you all in unison saying “Here gone and bought summit else” Yeah your right all them reps there with all that shiny new gear, I was drawn in and snared... As I left my partner said £1800 !!!! “I thought you had enough Cameras and Lenses”. Hmmm, me don’t think so...
So what did he get I hear you all cry.. well I came away with (All 2nd Hand, I am money conscious after all) a Fuji XT2, Fuji 23mm f2 and Fuji 100-400..(All rated 9+, and they are minty mint). I have just got in and the camera is on charge... The dilemma now will be do I keep all my Olympus Gear ?

Does anyone here use the 55-200 zoom? I am just about to order the 56mm 1.2R and was looking to get the 50-140 in the new yer, but the 55-200 has grabbed my attention.

I’ve used the 55-200mm since they first came out Sir, they’re “Excellent”.(y)

Well, after some thought, and a few beers, I have deiced to buy the 100-400 and hope to get the 55-200 used for a decent price, I think that will cover me for my needs. I opted for the 100-40 as I work at an airport and get decent opportunities for aircraft shots, which outweigh the 50-140 2.8 bias. Looking back to my Canon days, the 85mm and 100-400 were my most used lenses, the 70-200 2.8 was lovely, but i probably took 100 shots over 2 years!

So, I should soon have:

18-55
56 1.2R
55-200
100-400

:)

It’s well worth getting the 1.4TC bundled with it for only £100 extra

How do you define enough, in terms of cameras and lenses?

That’s a lot of hair for one so young. I love the second shot.

Roll up, roll up, cashback deals being announced tomorrow (remember Black Friday often provides additional cashback), some of these are so good, that I think we might see some retail prices go back up, so you might be onto a winner if you buy straight away, but I'm not being quoted on that!!!

£45 23mmF2, 35mmF2, 50mm F2, 35mmF1.4, 60mm, 18mm

£90 23mmF1.4, 56mm, 18-55mm, 18-135mm, 55-200mm


(X100F - £180, X-E3 +18-15 bundle £180, X-T100+15-45 bundle £90)

Remember these will only apply to a authorised UK stockist, and not grey suppliers - purchases made between 10/10/18 and 10/1/19
already got all those lenses only XT3 and Xpro2 are missing which I'm not that bothered about now I have a pair of XH1's Might of considers a XF80mm but just don't do enough macro these days !
In fact I'm not doing enough photography full stop :(

Does anyone use the X-T3 wireless communication and use a smartphone as a remote shutter much? I find it very clunky. You will connect the phone one day, then the next time it doesnt connect. Unless im doing it wrong its useless to rely on as a remote shutter when youre out and about.

Can anyone reccomend remote shutter for the X-T3? Does the USB-C port have a shutter function or is it the micro jack?

I’ve found the Cascable WiFi remote app to be pretty good. Seems to connect more readily than the Fuji version.
