    I'm not at work today, but, Thursday September 8th is the date when the XT-2's were available to sell and, I know,
    we (the store I work at in Vancouver) had about 10 cameras arrive by Tuesday and we had about 15 or more preorders :eek:

    Will curious to see how many we have left when I get back to work on Saturday? ;)

    Anyone here, thinking of purchasing one?

    Cheers,

    Jack

    It looks pretty good to me and I'm sure a lot of people will buy.

    I do hear that RAW conversion in Adobe CS6 is a problem. The highest level of Camera Raw that is compatible with CS6 is version 9.1.1. and the XT-2 raw files need a higher version that is only available in the Cloud version of Adobe. Unless you know different? . . . . . :)

    Nope, as far as I know, Chris, that's the situation Adobe wise and have heard more than a few people complaining about that :(

    Hope all is going well and Hi to Elsie :)

    Cheers,

    Fuji had only a small counter at The Photography Show but people were crawling all over it, all day, just to look at the X-Pro2. I would not be surprised if the XT-2 went down a storm as well.

    Thanks Jack, I'm not too bad. Had a bone marrow biopsy last Monday and await the results. The boss is fine, she's gone off to do a bit of shopping and have a coffee with a bunch of friends. She calls them "the girls" though there isn't one under eighty. Is that PC? . . . . :)

    Wow :eek:, but, not really surprised ;) As for the XT-2, Oly, I think we got in 12 of them, including two (1855) kits and
    I think we have, but, one body and one kit left :eek: and, even flogged one or two of the Canon 5D Mk IV's which, to me,
    is even more surprising than the number XT-2's :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Hi Chris,

    Fingers crossed, biopsy results wise and glad to hear Das Boss is out having fun
    with the GrrrrllZ and, PC, nope, but very Liberal of you to allow her to that ;) whilst you're stuck at home keeping up on the
    AP forums :D

    Cheers, take care and give Elsie a little rub behind the ear for me :D

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    I will certainly go round to Park cameras when the new Oly EM1 - II comes out and do a comparison. I love the EM1, and especially the constant 2.8 12-40 lens, but might be swayed by the T2. I sense Oly are into diminishing returns with image quality. Trying to persuade my Chairman to get the T2.

    If that was a bone marrow aspiration I had one of those back in 2009 .... bloody painful.

    I'm certainly tempted by the new fuji X-T2 when funds permit. I don't have many lenses for my canon so I'm not stuck in.

    Or, Carl, don't discount the forthcoming XT-20 :)

    Also a very good option. But I'm the kind of guy who likes to buy sensible and buy once. I'm sure I'd want to upgrade eventually so I tend to save and wait.

    I know what you mean, Mark, I had the (original) Galaxy S from Sept 2011 until December 2016 when it froze -- literally :eek:. I left my window
    open and it went down to about -10C and, me poor old phone just never came back to life :(. I upgraded to a Galaxy S5 and, wow, what
    a difference, I can use my phone all day (data, texting, phoning, etc … and only be down to 85% on my battery. As well, I can now, actually,
    get a phone call or text at home :eek::D

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Ironically, one of my co-workers finally got his XT-2 on the same day, even though he had to take the Graphite version because
    of all the customers still waiting for their "regular" XT-2's :eek: Still, he's happy ;)

    Cheers,

    Jack
