    Meh....

    Dont really see the appeal in that. I don't want a massive FF lens on my X-T2. That's the main reason I haven't changed up to the Sony A7 series. The camera may be compact, but the lenses are huuuuge.

    The only switch I have almost made is to Leica, as they are FF and have small lenses. But $$$$$

    If it means I can use my 70-200 2.8II, I'm all over that.

    Never really been bothered about "balance" with big lenses, I take the weight with my left hand on the lens anyway.

    Sony FE f4 lenses are essentially the same size as Fuji f2.8 lenses and the Sony 100-400GM also weighs the same as the Fuji 100-400. The 28mm f2 is also very small and compact.

    It's not so clear cut as saying all full frame lenses are automatically big and heavy. :)

    Doesn' it open up a world of possibilities with cheaper lenses from different manufacturers though? I don't draw any objection to using anything the size of the 50-140 or 100-400 either.

    Hmn $300 is alot for an adapter. That's practically a nice Fuji prime anyway.

    So it's basically an X-T2 with 5 axis IBIS?

    What did you expect? Of course it was going to be largely the same internals as the X-T2, it was obvious.

    IBIS?

    That's the whole point.

    IBIS and improved video capability, as has been documented on Fujirumors for months now.

    There was a huge amount of reviews on Flipboard a couple of days ago but sadly I didn't get the chance to look at any. I'm particularly interested in the new electronic front curtain shutter option and the way the low-light limit for phase detection autofocus has been improved by about 1.5 stops, from +0.5 EV down to -1.0 EV. I'm wondering if this will be passed to the XT2, or whether the true benefits can only be realised by moving to the XH1 with its 5 axis image stabilisation?

    How do people find the auto focus speed of the 35mm 1.4? I got to try it for a day whilst abroad just recently, but forgot to check the firmware version. It seemed to hunt slightly but still got some great shots of people in motion.
