The long zooms/primes are also still missing, but I guess that everyone is hurting right now in the manufacturer space.
😊The 70/300 comes next year,its similar size to 50/230 and 55/200.But,theres been leaks about a 300f4 and 500 f5.6 as well.

They say"When we develop a camera we get a year of customer feedback,then it takes us another year to release it,Lenses,well they take LONGER!"...this industry isnt a popout situation,everybody in every brand has to wait.

Which JPEG simulation was this? Have you found one that you prefer for colour and mono?

color shot are all Provia, plus my own tweaks in Luminar - I'm happy with that combination for color....

for mono, it depends - I shot a full day with Acros and liked the sim, but I have a harder contrast preset in Luminar for striking blacks and near-harsh whites....

I do like the various jpeg simulations, almost spoilt for choice of which one to use. Then there are all the in camera tweaks that can be made to each simulation. certainly is in my view a jpeg shooters camera.

Not sure if it is a feature on the XT2 but the XT3 has a setting in the bracket mode that allows you to shoot three different film simulations in one shot. Takes a bit longer while buffering but gives an instant option of for example colour or mono.
