I've been enjoying my gear so much that I haven't posted any updates on here in a long time. Of course there are a lot of rumors circling about a possible Xpro2 coming out later this year, some new lenses, another camera body. Lots of speculation out there.
I've been using my xt1 cameras for about a year now and am super happy with them.
One rumor that is actually a fact is the new firmware update arriving in a few weeks for the Fuji XT1. This one is supposed to improve the AF speed of the already exceptional XT1. For many this will be a game changer as it will make the camera that much more responsive. For me it has been working great, but there are a lot of action photographers and possibly even sports photographers who have been on the fence about moving over to Fuji for just this reason.
Here is a link to their official announcement: http://www.fujifilm.com/news/n150511.html
In any case a firmware update is always welcome in my book. In the past they have truly transformed these cameras to more capable, easier to use and more customizable. I really can't say enough about the firmware updates and how beneficial they are.
I was talking to a Nikon user earlier today about that and he was asking me why Nikon doesn't do that. I said they do, but its often to fix bugs. Fuji takes a whole different approach in that they will fix bugs and improve the camera.
Some stuff coming soon:
90mm f2 - will be an ideal portrait lens, pre-reviews say its stunning and only a little larger than the 56mm 1.2
new high end camera body - could be xpro2 or something else
(rumor) larger sensor coming soon
a super long telephoto zoom lens is coming out later this year as well
another macro should be out early 2016
what I'm curious about:
a new camera in the XE series
a new xpro2? and how will they improve on what is out there presently
another pancake lens f2 or faster
Let's see what happens!!
