Then she got fuming mad when Mic posted that screenshot on his own wall talking about idiot photographers.

To be fair, he didn't tag her in the post or anything. Icon_mrgreen

I've be going through the X-T1 manual. I find it unfortunate that they have one of the function buttons for macro, kinda like having a dumb ass print button

Thanks Sheldon

I'll be busy over the next 10 days figuring out what I like and what gets sent back.
===================
Edit
just unboxed the 56mm........sweet, feels nice, nice indexing on the aperture ring. I'm no opening the x-T1/18-55 kit though. Probably sending back, depends on how I feel about the 16-56 that arrives with a x-T1 body tomorrow, along with the 23 and 35.

Keeping the 18-55 and the 16-35 seems a bit over the top. The weather resistance of the 16-35 is driving that choice. I've got the 24-105 on the 5DIII to cover that FL if I need IS.

So, the crappiest Canon L lens on one of their best full frame sensors? Sounds like you have it all covered! ;)

Hi RudiIcon_biggrin

Actually, it's been a great lens, not the best, but certainly capable of covering a lot of bases.

This is a seriously cool system! I like the weight of the 16-55, the weight being the lens, not the body, dampens movement some what. I had an issue with the 135 being so light that I had problems hand holding at SS lower than 3 X FL. I think the Canon bag is gonna get lighter. 90mm Fuji to replace 135.

DJ has to check the Fuji out once his wife re-employees.

I have confess I haven't gotten into that much detail. I looked through the self evident settings and put them how I wanted then forgot about it. Most of what I do in use is just the basics. ISO/Shutter speed/Aperture/AF.

having the function buttons set up for AF points makes a lot of sense.

So................you fuckers suck me into this, then plead ignoranceIcon_lol

Mankins are lumps of cold, dead plastic. But that doesn't mean they don't turn me on.
With friends like these, who needs mankins? I do, that's who.
I love pinging my junk with a rubber band. Dr Snip taught me how.
I lead an underworld cult of mankin people.
WTFWJD?
