    The deeper eye cup is by JJC, everything else is OEM Fuji parts

    They let me keep the old bits, in fact that article/interview I did with Fuji UK was done while I was having the eye cup repaired. So I was only without my XP2 for about 45mins

    This week's X-Pro article features images from the X-Pro2!

    The X-Pro2 and the Forgotten Trip to Aveiro, a hazy head and hard light.

    I hope you enjoy seeing a place that you might not have been too!

    Nice photo's, if you have the opportunity you should definitely go back. So we will probably have another interesting article to read . . . . .

    Thanks guys,

    It’s about an hour on the train, so quite doable

    I made a trip out somewhere else (Vila de Conde) on Friday and planned my day around the light a little better

    I took the Leica that time, which I might also do if/when I go back to Aveiro

    But would make a better follow up article if I take the XP2 again!

    (I’m not that keen to ‘blog’ about the m9, but I am getting tempted to do so)

    Why not take them both, they ain’t that big. Might be interesting.

    That could work, maybe i need to get the adapter that lets you put M lenses on the fuji

    I’m surprised you don’t already have that adapter.

    I’m a bit meh about it, none of my leica lenses are that fast, and all bar the 35 will look like longer lenses than i like to use on the fuji.

    The 90 might be nice on the fuji though

    Ahh, I didn't think of it that way.

    If you ever get a loaner 90mm from Fuji it might be fun to compare the two 90's on your X-Pros.

    I want to borrow the 90 (the Fuji one), maybe Fuji can lend me the M adaptor too!

    I found this going through some 2016 shots and decided it needed a 2018 PP :)

    Hope you do. Having been thoroughly spoiled by the 16mm and 35mm F1.4 lenses, I won't buy another Fuji lens unless it matches their "IQ". Having looked at the 90mm images, I honestly can't work out whether it does, so it would be good to get your opinion.

    That sounds like a good reason to request one!

    I’ll see what I can do!

    This Sunday's article, well.... THIS ISN’T A TEST IT’S A BIT OF FUN

    Lunchtime Legends: A Bit of Fun with the X-Pro1 and Leica M9

    So two cameras... Quite frankly both a bit long in the tooth these days... yet each has quite a cult following, based largely on the look and feel of the images.

    We can't really directly compare these cameras, (that would be like comparing two different cult movies) but we can take each out and see what pictures they come back with.

    That was a fun comparison to read.

    Goodness me, Sunday already... I haven't stopped this week!

    Images Compared: A Bit of Fun with the X-Pro1 and X-Pro2

    Two X-Pro cameras, one lens, one image editor, and light so scary, tough and hard, that I wanted to hide my cash in my sock :)

    But just how different did the images turn out?

    Adam, the pictures are definitely different close but different. I see the X-P1 images as slightly warmer over the X-P2, can’t make my mind up which I prefer! Oh dear yet another quandary you’ve left me in, but I lean toward the X-P1, but only a slight lean. :daz:
