The Fuji X-T2 after several months

July 17, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Although I had ordered Fuji's 18-135mm lens at the same time as the X-T2 body, the lens is still on back order which is extremely frustrating. Apparently, Fuji relocated the manufacturing plant for this and other lenses to the Philippines which is causing the back log. Fortunately, I have been able to secure a used 10-24mm and 100-400mm lens which I am very impressed with. They are extremely sharp and the image stabilization works much better than any Nikon lens I've owned. More on these lenses in future blog posts. During a recent trip to New England, I rented a 18-135mm lens and was blown away. Not only is the lens sharp, but the image stabilization is out of this world. The image of the leaf and shell was taken at 1/27th of a second at F16 hand held. I never did any hand held close up photography with my Nikon equipment. Due to the fact that this lens focuses to within 1.5 feet, I don't see myself having to purchase a macro lens. This lens is built like a tank and is weather sealed.

There is still a lot to learn and experiment with this camera. I'm really enjoying the film simulations, the exterior control knobs, and of course the electronic view finder. More later ...
