Just a few quick pics from my first time shooting with the XT3. I love USING the camera. The iso, aperture, and exposure compensation dials are awesome! I did have some issues with focus points and need to figure that out. Also, the post-processing issues are real with Fuji .RAF! I thought it was an overblown issue, but I definitely will NOT be processing the files in Lightroom. I downloaded the C1 Fuji Express software and that seems to work the best. I did also try out iridient x converter but wasn't pleased with those results either. So, looks like I will be learning the C1 system until/if Adobe ever fixes their support, which is a shame to me.

I haven't been able to love that 45 minolta , maybe my copy and / or shooting wide open , too busy .
But it is sharp , you are right.

As for shake , also, thats only rarely an issue with the fujis i have if a long lens. I have no problem shooting at iso 6400 either , and most of the time i love the look of high iso on the fujis i have. Do you not ?

It is fun , though , figuring the cameras out , ' ain't ' it ,

Try just shooting jpeg, and use the parameters for color, sharpness , tone ,
Its all you need,.
But i realize lots of you like messing with computers ....

it's nearly a perfect lens for a downtown walkabout - set it to f8 and just go...

eventually, I'm going to want to put longer lenses on the Fuji and the noise I'm seeing with higher ISO's is unsatisfactory to me... plus, I will eventually buy a native lens...

eventually....

Stabilized lens ? Or h1 . The newest camera have stabilization ?
Noise is no problem on the fujis i have , most times prefer it .

There's always something.... otherwise what fun would it be

OK. It's not something I've often found that I miss, possibly because the SR on the K-3 isn't that good anyway. Other makes now make far grander claims for their IBIS than what I get with my K-3.

The Fujifilm software is a bit of a pain to use but it works well. I do 98% of my PPing in-camera these days, and the Fuji implementation is slightly more flexible than the Pentax one, as it allows ISo changes in 1/3 stops. I only really PP on a computer if I can't get the WB right in-camera.

Yep, bar the H1 the Fuji bodies with IBIS are new and expensive with virtually nothing on the used market.

I am definitely trying to dial in the in camera settings and then working on being more conscientious about nailing all of the other parameters (especially exposure). I would LOVE to not have to post process! My initial attempts were less than ideal for the in camera settings.
