Weight and Stuff Report – 19 May 2016

What’s this? Quite shockingly down today! Who’d have thought it?

Today’s photo is another demonstration of my lovely long lens on the X-T1. Taken from Cullercoats, looking over the Tyne piers, you can clearly see Souter Lighthouse:

Oh, and just to make me happy, and my credit card sad, Fujifilm have announced a new x2 teleconverter for my 100-400mm and 50-140mm lenses. This will make the big beastie the approximate equivalent of a 1200mm lens on a full frame camera. A while back, I was thinking that the one thing I missed from my old Canon kit was a seriously long lens (you might recall I had a 150-500mm Sigma monster), but with this latest development, Fujifilm have strolled right past that while sticking their collective tongue out and waving a sign reading “call that long?”. Or something like that. And yes, I’ll be getting the x2 to go with my x1.4.
