wOw Brian.....beautiful..! That kind of photography is right up my street......stunning Sir!We went out for for walk in one of our local National Trust Gardens yesterday. Very sunny, so tricky conditions in the light and shade. I was happy with this one - a welsh poppy in the shade, lit by a shaft of sunlight. XH1 and Laowa 65mm macro

I've boosted the contrast a bit to get the detail on the petals.
Lovely motor mate, you obviously have great taste . I'm on my 5th Mini, 4th JCW. Mrs has a Mini, my lad has had two.... We love Mini's even more than Fuji's !

Watch those wheels, that convex design leaves the spokes exposed to the kerb. I know through experience!!
Like it but maybe the flag and the dude in the chair are competing to be the subject ?
Thanks so much for your comments - I do agree the flag may be competing, and probably I was just too lazy to try and clone it out. But then the guy in the wheelchair needs a bit more space on the left, but it was blocked out by a monument. Once again, thanks and I might try playing about with it a little more.I agree with Dave. The horizontal lines lead my eyes across to the right and get blocked by the flag. But if you cloned it out, would the photo have the same immediate impact? I don't think so.
That is an awesome road, and the views too! A popular one for motorbikes too heading for West Bay (but quite often speed cameras...). Love the minis
Thanks Donna, we met up at Studland and made our way along the coast and then North on the B roads up to Sherborne, and took the A30 to Shaftesbury, ending up at my place in Mere. My mate then made his way back to Sussex after a late lunch. It was a great day....That is an awesome road, and the views too!

The only answer I can offer to this is, until I decided to use freelance photographers for my high end motorsport (including F1) business we as a company were using X-H1 units exclusively for all of my staff photographers without any problems with regards to focusing whatsoever. We also used these units in low light (evening meetings) and never experienced a focusing problem.Yesterday I found my X-H1 struggling to focus while taking some pictures of a friends wedding (low light, low contrast and edge focusing point), made me start wondering if waiting for the X-H2 was rather pointless, so having not paid any attention to any new models since the 1 was released I'm now beginning to think I might need to look at a newer body.
So all you experts, what have the newer models got over the 1 in terms of focus speed especially in low-ish light, but also for moving stuff, like motorsports.
I've been very happy with the 1 in every other way, but got too many out-of-focus shots for my liking.
X-4 maybe ?
Lenses used were 16-55 f2.8 and 40-150 f2.8 so it's not a case of slow lenses btw.
Thanks for any help !
