What are your initial thoughts on the XF10?

I have the X-T20 currently but thinking about getting an XF10 to compliment it, the majority of my photos are taken at or around 18mm so I'm thinking it may be an ideal pocket camera for days out...
It is OK, it has it's faults. I have posted my thoughts on it and some photos, in the thread below. They are the last few posts on the thread.

I'll take a look, thanks.

Well, just sold my 1dx 3, all my lenses and any other ef stuff I had kicking around,
In two days time I should be the bewildered owner of an R5 and an expensive lens I don't need but just wanted.

I never learn.

Not purchased any new gear for almost two years now so I need to do something about that...

I've got a Fuji X-T20 with 18-55, 27mm and 55-230 which is a good setup for me, I've noticed though that most of my shots are either at 18mm or with the 55-230 so I'm thinking of parting with the 27mm f2.8, I love the size of it but just don't seem to use it as much as I thought I would.

My plan is, keep the X-T20 and the two zooms, but replace the 27mm f2.8 with an XF10. Or at least, that's the plan until the wife finds out...

Be very interested to hear how that goes.

Well I bought an R5 and an rf85mm 1.2.
I am disheartened to discover the rf70-200 2.8 will not work with extenders otherwise I would have bought one.
Almost as disappointing is the fact the rf100-500 cannot utilise the full zoom range with extenders either.

I feel canon missed a trick there.

R5 won't take the extenders from the EF series..?
With the RF to EF adapter it will, won't help with RF lenses though. So far I've kept my 20+ EF lenses and all are working perfectly with the adapter, no need to change to RF.

Was looking at a used Fuji X100V. I had a couple of bodies and some lenses to trade in. But even after the trade in, I would have still needed a fair old amount of cash. So, I did not follow through to check out.

Keen to hear how you get on with the 35-350mm, always a lens I’ve toyed with buying. For a lot of my photography now a one hit wonder lens as you could say would be crucial to me, no time for the switcharoo

Each to his own. :naughty:

It's about 5 times as big as the Sigma 28-300 I used to keep on my 5D! :wideyed:
Haha true its a good chunk of glass but then again alot more smaller than all the lenses you would have to carry though ;)

Weight wise its light (to me anyway) and practicalness for me its definitely up there with that coverage for what I need it for, maybe I have just sold myself one?? :exit:

Well, after well over a year of indecision, I finally did it. I've just ordered myself a new Nikon D850. :eek:

This will be my first 'new' D/SLR purchase since my Olympus OM4 in 1986 as I've always sworn by purchasing used, but as I can easily recoup the cost by selling on some of my current gear, it's a no-brainer to upgrade from my D810. Especially as I've now got the glass to make the most of it with two of Nikon's 'Holy Trinity' of lenses. :cool:

Today I made the pitch to my wife about me absolutely and desperately needing a Sony 1.4x teleconverter(again) . Took me a good half hour to practise the pitch and it took her a fraction of a second to say "OK"..... why do I bother :LOL:?
I find the slow trickle method works with my husband. Keep mentioning it with increased frequency until he says ‘oh just buy it then’ :LOL:

That's what I do with Mrs Nod. Or I just present her with a fait accompli.

destroyed my wife’s old vivitar tripod so I picked up a manfrotto 055CL for 48 quid from ebay. Brilliant - solid as anything ( Gitzo’s etc excepted ) and great for my dslr and 150-600 on a cheapo gimbal.
Liked it so much that I got a 190cl as new for 33 quid - nearly as good but marginally smaller.
Tripods come in threes, don’t they, so I am looking for a cheap smaller one.
I fear it won’t end there.

Just how many tripods can you have before becoming certifiable ?

Something like that.

Mrs Nod's allowed to buy bags/shoes/whatever she wants to buy, as am I. Well, I'm not allowed any more motorbikes unless I trade one in against anything fresh!

Just received a Sigma 35 f/1.4 from the nice postman. I was just considering it. One was up for sale on here at a good price. We all know how that ends. I couldn’t help it.

The good news is I don’t want/need anything else now.

Honest.

I'm considering a new camera nothing more than I fancy a new camera. Just no idea what to buy, hoping the gas subsides before my bank account takes a hit

Well I bought the RF 70-200 2.8 and I don't really need it.

I feel I bought this out of frustration through lack of lens availability (in the UK) as the RF 100-500 would better suit my needs.

Man I'm going to regret that purchase!

O, that's a big dollop of buyer's remorse... Is it out of return date?
