    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.

    XH1 looks very good for video and stills.

    I read an article on Flipboard of a guy managing an eleven second exposure, hand-held, braced against a wall.

    Lol you can do that with any modern good quality 5-axis IBIS if you lean against a wall, hold your breat and keep trying. And it was here https://keithwee.com/portfolio/hera...iew-in-2000-words-and-a-ton-of-sample-images/

    Never used 5 axis image stabilisation. Tbh I have had enough trouble trying to get an stable image when it's freezing due to it being really cold. ;) Presumably this would help with this?

    Less lugging tripods around is a great point.
