looking forward to using the camera for a wedding the week after next.
this will be my main camera for the day and i need to pick up a back up and a wider option. wondering if an x100f would be suitable.

Hmm for me the X100F didn't quite cut it, XT-1 and 23 1.4 would be my choice

The X100F for all it's brilliance is soft towards the edges wide open, the 23mm lenses get sharper the more you spend, though the 23mmF2 shouldn't be overlooked, as it has the snappiest AF of the 3 and has WR.

(I have all 3 !! X100F, XF23mm F2 (on my wife's camera) and XF23mm F1.4)

I've always rated the f1.4. Its probably the sensible choice.

although i'd really like to get a the graphite pro 2 kit with the 23mm f2. -cant really afford it though

Just a quick heads up in case you may not have heard about it. I visited this exhibition in New York back in march this year and can tell you it sure is worth a visit if you're in town.(y)

My concern is not to get too close to the subject. I use a 23mm for everyday use. Really happy. I am planning to add a 35mm but then I ll make a leap to the 90
I'm lucky enough to own both the XF56 APD f1.2 and the XF90mm :) I have to be honest and say I haven't used the 90mm much as I have only managed a few studio shoots and the 56mm was a better choice due to space.
I purchased a XH1 at the photography show in March so I am hoping when my health allows it to get out and shoot with my primes.
Which was my original idea when I purchased my first X body with 2 primes, if you decide that you want to go with the 56mm f1.2 I would go with my original choice of the R version. Sadly I dropped this in the studio and snapped the mount off the lens.
I sent to Fuji U.K. For repair who were really fast with the repair but sadly the carrier who collected it from Fuji lost my lens:(
Fuji U.K. who I can't fault kept me well up to date on my missing package :) I can't say the same about the useless courier :( Fuji more or less offered me a replacement lens and said they would pursue the carrier/courier.
When they came back to me they hadn't any 56mm 1.2 R lenses in stock but offered me the APD version as a replacement at no charge. The reason I say get the R version over the APD is it works with both the AF systems in the Fuji X bodies:):fuji:

Do any of you guys use a screen protector on your H1, and if so which one(s)? I've only ever used a GGS Larmor, on my previous X series cameras. But doesn't look like they do one for the H1.

I used a spare one from my XT2, same size I think.

Amazon.co.uk - search xh1 screen protector. Take your pick.

I want one, seriously.

I’ve just spent the past hour reading the entire thread from start to finish.

Having owned several Fuji cameras my concern would be the AF performance. AF on the x100, x100t and the x-Pro1 was terrible, seriously terrible. How much has it moved on?

I haven’t had my current kit long but it’s already setting off my back issues. I took the camera out last weekend and I’ve been on pain killers ever since (serious not joking). I’ll probably lose a ton of cash switching but selling my current camera and lenses could fund a serious amount of Fuji kit.
