    Fuji really should cut a check to Tony and Kyle. The two of them alone are driving up sales on the 50-230. I, fortunately, have one I can "borrow" in my son's kit, when I need it.

    That's awesome about the cover shot being taken with a 50-230.

    I think I'm up to 6 friends, maybe 7 now, who bought into Fuji gear after trying mine out. The least they could do is slide me a refurbished XE3.

    The challenge: shooting into a strongly back-lit scene through a somewhat dirty window. I think they came out OK.

  13. Well, had to return it as it wasn't the MkII model as promised. Ordered a "new" MkII and it should be here next week. Looking forward to checking it out. Hopefully it's a good one!

    I came across this image on 500px and it told me a few things. One does not need $10k in photo gear to take stunning bird photos. The 50-230 is every bit as awesome as we have been saying. I am severely lacking in talent using the 50-230.
