    Haven't used my XP1 in months, the 35/1.4 is such a lovely lens but the body is pretty frustrating to use which reminded me why I don't really use it as much as my other cameras. The XP2 solves most of those operating quirks so I'm waiting for prices to come down on them:

    Still, nice shots/lighting.
    Can anybody recommend a good vintage (manual) macro with adapter for the XT2? I don't get the shots I want with the 60mm.

    3 of these are Fuji X-T1.

    3 of these are Canon 5D4.

    Can you tell which is which? It is unprocessed.

    2,3 and 5 seem to have the same colour balance - so I'll go with those as one set - not sure which camera though.

    Ahh, yes, that's what I meant to post before Raymond distracted me. So I received my 23mm f2 last night to that replaces my MIA 23mm f1.4 (still haven't the foggiest where it is, it's like a whodunnit). If you have the 35mm f2 then you know exactly what to expect... it is small, light, and seems very sharp. Perfect for street photography and travel.

    I will be taking it to the USA with my on a 3 week trip this week so will have plenty of opportunity to try it out. :)

    I keep going 2,3,4 &5 but they are just the one's I prefer. I'll be sending myself crackers trying to guess. Put some of us out of our misery Raymond.

    I'm looking for a nice thin(ish) strap for my XT10 that is easy to detach, was thinking the peak design job but I don't like the bits left on the camera anyone got anything they'd recommend?

    You have to watch the hard buckle resting and knocking against the lcd when storing or packing your camera in the bag et. At least this is the cause for concern with the Slide. Apart from that your fine with the Peak Design.

    On the Fuji v Canon game: I'm guessing 2, 3, and 5 are Fuji.

    The opposite. Canon is 1, 3 & 4.

    It is Fuji that has the green tint.

    Interesting, as my X-T2 has no such green tint. *shrugs*

    PS: At least I got the numbers right, my eyes are good. :p

    Always interesting to see, I'm assuming the green tint is a quick fix in lightroom so the final images would be pretty consistent?

    Could be the difference between the 16MP and 24MP sensors and the way Camera Raw chooses to interpret their files. I do know that Canon files generally have more vibrant reds straight out of the box, and that Fuji's look when it came to film is generally a bit greener and colder compared to Kodak, so they probably tweaked the colour science to reflect that.

    None of the X cameras I have or have had have ever had that green tint.

    Looking at the photos again, I suspect the big windows in the room are what cause the green tint (iron oxide according to Pilkington). To our eyes it'll be imperceptible, but cameras can still pick it up. Canon's look is a little more red/magenta compared to other brands, so it cancels out the green a tad to produce a more neutral image.

    Could also be if you've knocked the white balance off by accident? I had a green tint for a while because I'd pressed the default white balance button and moved it off centre without realising.

    Interestingly what displays itself as a green tinge on my phone is not observable on my Pc monitor which is a Samsung LED.
