Where is the xt2 for sale at £1122 please
Eglobal central if you double up on discounts which worked when I bought a lens from them. You go through topcashback website and get 2.3% discounts then use a £19 discount code NEWYEAR19 at checkout.

Thanks Robert.

Bit of a faff but ultimately worth it.

Anyone know how long these offers are on for?

Or do I wait for the X-T20 to come out?

And if I do, will I miss out on important features the X-T2 has over the 20?

You get a 2 yr warranty rather than a 1 yr one from fuji if you by from eglobal.

Its not a huge difference between the two i went for the t1 over the t10 because the price difference wasn't huge, however the t20 or the t2 its a different matter.

Right,

Nipped into Jessops at lunch specifically to handle the X-T10 to get a fell for the upcoming X-T20.
No way can I hold that camera comfortably. It's way too small for my mitts.

On chatting with the sales assistant I learned that apart from the part ex quote I'm eligible for an extra £200 trade in bonus.

This makes the XT2 £1199.


I'm SO tempted now (even though I've not got a Fuji lens yet.

It was too small for me also, and I didn't keep mine for long! You won't get a deal like that from a grey-market importer, even though I've nothing against the practice per se.

Get it with the 18-55 as a package. Cracking lens, best way to buy it.

Just a candid street style shot taken at The Famous Sun Studio Cafe (Memphis) USA.

X-T1, 18-55mm Lens, 1/4 sec @ F2.8, ISO-200 Handheld.

There's a lot of interest inside this shot. Plus it's not just a "snap" but a carefully composed photograph with leading diagonals.

I really love the 18-55 as I've mentioned many times, however it's just not getting used. I'm wondering whether to sell it for a 18mm.

Quick one for anyone with both a 23 F2, and a 35 1.4 - if you had to choose one only, which would you keep? Pondering on trading my 35 for a 23, but then the 35 is so good for portraits and I have hear/read/seen in reviews of the 23, that it can be soft wide open?

That is a possible, though I like having 2 bodies. I have one set up for quick fire, almost full auto Jpeg shooting, and the other atm set for my manual focus lenses. Using both on one body is a PITA.

Beggers can't be choosers! ;)

I don't think I would sell it. I'd save up.

Yes, yes we can ;) I've managed beg, borrow and stealing up to now :D Also the Xpro1 was a prize, so I'd like to keep it for now either way. It's not worth the cost of a 23 F2 used so I'd have to save anyway.

What I would do, is trade for a 23 F2 with the 35 1.4 maybe. Ach, I'll ponder some more

Made my usual Sunday morning walk today but only took three manual lenses with me. Helios 135, 58 & 28. Quite pleased with the performance to price ratio but the 28mm could be a bit better.

Couple from the 135mm

I liked the handling of the xt1. It was the af performance I thought was rubbish. In everything I've read Fuji have addressed all the issues I had with the xt1

I have to disagree with the AF is rubbish. What do you intent to shoot? I have no problem with AF even with low light. The key to get the best out of the AF is set your camera right. If you like fuji i would say go buy one, their are always new camera comes out but lens don't change often. Buy the xt1 and get a few quality lens or get xt2 and a lens and enjoy shooting man.

In that case I stand corrected and obviously had not set the camera up properly jj.
The camera may not work for how you shoot, I don't know. I just replied for balance and others reading the thread. The EVF blackout drove me mad on the X-T1, which made it harder for me to track subjects. I'll pick up a grip eventually for the X-T2 to see how that goes. Tracking AF is improved on the X-T2, but that's more with regards to difficult subjects (like BIF) rather than cars/motorbikes which I found fine on the X-T1.

Edit: I notice you're in Kidderminster, which isn't far from me. I'm not sure when the next motorsports event is that I'll be going to, but your more than welcome to have a go with the X-T1 and X-T2 if you want to compare.
