can't keep up...

...with the fuji shooters and your gear lists.
i am still amazed at some of us...buying gear, selling gear, trading gear...
who had what?
who has what?
is HH still shooting fuji? and has jrocket really moved to another country and what gear did he take with him?

if you are similarly interested and feeling the urge...list you fuji gear here and maybe continue with a follow-up every now and then.

for me, i have...(1)xt20...(2) xe2...(2) xe1 bodies
lenses...16...23...23...27...50...56...55-200

X100T.
X-T1.
18mm f/2; 35mm f/1.4; 56mm f/1.2; 55-200mm f/3.5-4.8.
Fuji M adapter.
Metabones Speedbooster Ultra Nikon F adapter.

This covers probably 95% of my small-format photography and I haven't felt the urge to buy anything else for a long while.

But they did not have the new 50 f2 (75mm) the only lens I wanted
So I went for the X100F
fuji makes very nice p&s cameras...i'm waiting for a grip and thumb thingie to arrive for my xt20 and hope it makes the fit better for my small hands...

Recently moved up from the XE2 to the X-Pro2 (had the X-Pro1 before the XE2).

I really, really love the results I get but the gadzillion buttons, menus, triple functions, etc is driving me nuts. I hate, with a passion, the exposure compensation dial. My thumb is forever moving it unexpectedly. I've tried taping it to keep from accidentally moving it, didn't work. Looking for a tube of superglue now.

X100, bought when they first came out and going strong. XPro1 bought shortly after they came out and doing the same. I got the camera and the initial three lens choices at the same time. I've added a 12mm Zeiss and a 23/2 to the arsenal and am not very damn patiently waiting for the XE3 to come out. Hurry up Fuji!!

You should grab the 32mm Zeiss before the prices jump considering they have been officially discontinued. Likely my favorite standard lens in any system... when I had it!

Oh yeah, and the Fuji M adapter. I haven't take to using my M glass, the difference in focus peaking vs the RF patch is not gonna get it for me. Luckily, Fuji glass is superb.

Figure out what functions you want to regularly use.

After that decide if you want to assign them to hard buttons.

Or setup the Q menu with the functions you want.

Or setup the My Menu with the functions you want.

After you get it configured in a way that works for you you shouldn't need to go into the menus. If you don't like all the buttons you can disable them. Hold down the button for a few seconds and the menu will pop up that lets you set its function....set it to none.

If the exposure compensation if bothering you get a thumb grip for the camera. It will feel like a wind lever and will keep your thumb away from exposure compensation. You might also turn on the digital exposure compensation display, the analog one is hard to read though Fuji made it a little better in the latest firmware.

X100F and X-T2. When I finish with this current lens sale, I'll then have 16... 27... 50... and 55-200. Later I plan to add the 35/1.4. I also have a cool little Kipon tilt adapter for mounting Nikkors on X-T2. I also have the battery grip for the X-T2, but not sure I need it. I'm going to wait to see if the 16 feels balanced on the body alone.

I've been looking at some of Fuji's cameras because of their simplicity of controls. When picking up a Nikon body (always in manual) my thumb constantly bumps the command dial above the grip, changing the shutter speed. This makes me crazy, as I've screwed up photos not noticing the change. It would be great to be able to turn off unwanted control buttons in the menu. In the case of the main command, Nikon has me looking for other cameras.

I would try gaffer tape, if that doesn't work silicone seal. Its soft and can be removed easily. I use small bits of gaffer tape (cotton base) on my cameras a lot. It comes off clean if not left on for a long period of time. So, if you try it, change it monthly and it will remove cleanly..

Fuji gear = zero!

Which quite surprises me because I certainly appear to have all the other brands covered.

As long as Fuji has tentacles in the pharmaceutical industry they won't sell me any photographic gear ...

X100s.

It's hard to use my Sony gear now. In fact, I sold two lenses and kept the NEX7 and A6000 and the 70-200f/4 lens.

I'm considering the move to Fuji now that I've seen the colors myself from my camera SOOC jpgs. Fun camera to shoot over spring break.

I'm thinking of selling the 12mm as I never seem to use it. I can't imagine much better than the 35 from Fuji and it's not as bulky.

Tomatoes and Cucumbers both grow in dirt.

I assumed you were a fan of the Touit draw.

Out of curiosity, gonna grab the 14? or just that Focal length thats hit and miss in your interests.

Exactly my thinking. Little smaller and lighter lens. I like the wide, I just haven't taken to the Zeiss. It's pretty large and for some reason that bothers me.

I can totally agree with you there.

Another small thing for me was the styling of the whole thing...

I would rather have a classic inspired exterior like the new Fuji's I admit.

XPro 2
XE2
X100s
12mm 2.8 Zeiss
16mm 1.4 Fuji
35mm 1.4 Fuji
56mm !.2 Fuji
18-55 Fuji

Joe, I have been winnowing down everything, including Fuji.
Love my X100s ... both the form and function...works well, looks great. However, 35mm equivalent is my least favorite field of view.

I like my Pro2 except I never use the OVF, much preferring the EVF. Wasting that (paid for) capability.
Body strikes me as too large and heavy.
In terms of usability and ergonomics I prefer my XE2.

Looking forward to (I hope) test driving an as yet mythical XE3. If it works out as I hope, will trade in the Pro 2 and stick with two XE3's.
I very much like the simpler world of two identical bodies, one identical menu system.

i'm also hoping for an xe3...i like the xt20 as it has the bigger sensor, acros and it sure does fit the new smaller fuji lenses.
the grip for the xt20 just came in today and it makes a 100% difference (positive) in the feel of the body in my hand. i already can see myself wanting to use it more.

i also have changed my philosophy re. gear buying...i have been buying but not selling and so my gear list grows and does not remain stable/balanced...

Had previously:
56mm f1.2
35mm f1.4
35mm f2

Would not have sold any of them if I was not in need of money at the time - all are fantastic. I want to add the 14mm f2.8, the 35mm f1.4 and the 56mm f1.2 again.

XQ1, tiny and pocketable
XE2
12mm Samyang
18mm
35 f2
X-mount effects lens f8
Just got the 18-55 for my trip to Canada next month

Sold my Xpro 1 a few days ago and my XE1 about a month back

Just arrived in our shop this weekend are the 23/1.4 and 56mm. Had a few minutes play with them and don't feel the urge to buy.

Since postin the above, I've added the X100T and need to sell the original X100 I've had from new. Difficult to part with it tho.

X-T1 + vertical battery grip,

10-24/4, 14/2.8, 18/2, 27/2.8, 35/2, 56/1.2

gear and needs are in equilibrium (wait... I should probably sell the 10-24/4 and pick up the 16 and 23 primes OR sell the 14/2.8)

been busy with other hobbies lately but still with Fuji and don't see myself going with something else.

X-T2 with Zeiss 12, XF 18mm, XM-FL 24mm, XF 50mm, XC 16-50mm
only thing most likely changing for me is selling the X-T2 and going with the X-E3

I've owned the first 3 of the x100 series
Love the camera, great results, everyone loves the SOOC black and white
Hesitating over the X100F, not sure I'd benefit from the improvements

Si señor. I'm in Chile and I brought my X-Pro2, X-T2, and a X100F. I have a 35mm f/2, 50mm f/2, a 16-55mm f/2.8 zoom, and the 50-230mm zoom. I mostly use the X-Pro2 w/ 35mm f/2 on the streets and at times the X100F. I think these may be the best cameras I've ever owned. Also, the X100F is my walk around camera when I'm with my girlfriend. When I travel to anywhere other than cities, I take the X-T2 with the 16-55mm zoom. I don't think I'll be buying anything else for awhile unless I think I want a wider angle (not at this time) or the GFX and 63mm come down to about half of that combo's current price on the used market in a few years.

X100 - original, with dented hood
XPro1
XT1
18-55 kit lens
27 f2.8 pancake
35 f1.4

I am eyeing the 23 f2 and the XPro2, but am having trouble justifying any more purchases since what I've got gives me 'good enough'. Yes, there's faster focusing, more megapixels, joystick, weather proofing, etc. but I'm not sure any of that's going to make too much of a difference for me, at least right now. Might feel different next month...
