Waiting to extend my Fuji collection

    Originally on Olympus OM until I traded everything to get a Nikon F80 and a couple of lenses back in 2005. Fast forward 10 years and I have a D200, D300 and several lenses but back in March I picked up a used Fuji X-E1 and a Nikon to Fuji adaptor and haven't looked back.

    I'm just waiting for the part-ex quote for my D300 and 5 lenses to be confirmed and I will then add a second Fuji body and maybe a Fuji lens....

    They were giving x-pro1s away with 2 lenses earlier this year as a kit. A 27 and a 60 mm I think (not 100% sure). Worth to scan this week's AP adverts.

    Deal is done and a (new to me) Fuji X-E2, XF18/2 and EF20 flash are heading my way. I'm really looking forward to finally trying AF on the Fujis plus the extra manual focusing features that they've added to the X-E2 over the X-E1.

    X-E1s are going for silly money now and they are fabulous cameras; I find it quite astonishing that you can pick these up for as little as £130 2nd hand.

    Enjoy the X-E2.

    Yeah, I picked up a mint X-E1 for £200 back in March which is what has started me on this Fuji route. I really like the X-E1 and will be keeping it, but I am looking forward to the X-E2.

    X-E2 and XF18/2R have arrived, the camera is quite an improvement on the X-E1 (which is already a great camera).
    AF has taken a bit of getting used to after 3-4 months exclusively MF.

    Took this picture at the weekend...

    Nice, very nice. It looks like you're already in sync with the new toy. :D

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it.

    It helps that the sensors are the same - so my preferred image settings just needed setting on the new body. The button layouts are slightly different, which threw me at first but I have just about got used to it.
