I honestly don't believe I've been messing about taking snaps of Telegraph Poles, but there you go strange things happen. As it happens though I quite like the snap.

Just a simple Fujigraph taken at Kent UK of the top of a Telegraph Pole that I've juggled about with a bit in PP to give a kinda high contrast graphic presentation.

X-H1, 55-200mm Lens, 1/500th @ F6.4, ISO-200, Hendheld.

16-55mm F/2.8 on it's way from MPB this morning - did a trade in! #excited!
Well it came - very nice lens - used it twice - off back to MPB for a refund. The lens is reporting the apeture to the camera from 1/3 to 1/2 a stop out, and not consistently.

They said refund as they have none in stock - but today they have one - so hoping a phone call in the morning will make that mine!

That's a shame, I am looking to try one of those, but aren't sure if it is that much better than the 18-55... I guess there's only one way to find out!

Shot with both and the 16-55 is better but it depends on what your shooting. If you going to shoot a lot of landscapes at f8 ish I think you will struggle to tell the difference.
Advantage of the 16 -55 its 2mm wider if you need it, better at f2.8 at the long end. and its weather sealed but its heavy compared to the 18-55 and the 18-55 does have IS

One from the mighty X-E1 converted to IR.

Great image. (y)

I found my old IR Canon 350d in the loft a few weeks back. Thought I’d got rid of it. Charged it up and it still works, even has some images on the card. Trouble is, I’ve not got any Canon lenses anymore. Might get a cheap kit lens and have a play as IR photography is great fun in the summer and helps with the long daylight hours and sunshine.

Seems as if, after a bit of research, my Fuji lens can be prone to hotspots. Pity as I could convert my XE1.

Question about the EVF on my X-Pro 2.

If I leave the Brightness setting on Auto it seems to be awfully dim - particularly when compared with the rear LCD. I know the two are not strictly comparable but it's even more noticeable when I use the OVF so I've upped the Brightness setting by 2.

Anyone else have experience of this or is it just my eyesight failing?

The XP1 and 56 is an awesome combination, I think I'll try that myself over the weekend if I get a chance.
Cheers Rick, yes the XP1/56 combo is totally magnificent to be honest..!! Loving it.

Again, it's the X-Pro1's sensor that gives utterly beautiful rendition and a vivid painterly effects - for me that's sublime.
