I've been away for a bit but now I am back with two new toys. A Fuji X-Pro2 and a Fujinon 100-400. 😀
Congrats Gary on your new toys. Can't wait to see some photos from X-Pro2 and 100-400!  :)

Frank - your portrait shots are very unique and wonderful. BW conversion is very pleasing. I would love to hear more on your bw workflow.

The most important part of the workflow is the way I talk to the people.
They seem to trust me very much. So they behave openly and friendly.

The second step is choice of equipment. A Nikon cam suits me well and
the 35mm lens of the manual focus kind slows me down and the 1.4 aperture
adds the necessity to concentrate even more.

Then I do develop for tones and details in men or tones and soft skin for women
Photo Ninja is a nice developer.

In Photoshop I try to separate further with Curves Brightnes Contrast and add a
 vignette from Siver Efx.

sorry before that  I get rid of distractions, like geometric trouble or elements that
do not fit the composition.

Gary, would be curious about your findings on the new toy

Firstly, it has retained the look and feel of the original. It is reminiscent of my Nikon F or Leica M3, solid, highly functional, a well oiled tool.  I hope I can explain it ... The complexity of the of the camera is in the inside, but it is very simple to use with minimal menu diving. But if you want to menu dive, the menus are clear and simple and the photog has a lot of options for different setups.  For what I shoot and how I shoot ... Everything is right there at my fingertips ... The sophistication of the camera is that it is so elegantly simple ... At one level, the shooting level, it is a camera and doesn't try to be anything else ... And is fully operational at that level.  At another level, the menu level, it is a sophisticated photographic computer with all the bells and whistles.

I've only used it once on a walk with the pooch. I armed it with my also newly acquired Fujinon 100-400 and surprisingly, (IIRC), the optical viewfinder worked at 400mm.

The AF is extremely quick. I didn't see any 'significant' differences in AF response between my XT1's and my 1Ds ... But the AF on this XP2 is definitely much quicker than the XT1.

Lastly, for now, the shutter sound is absolutely wonderful, this solid and low ka-click ... Like a recorded SLR but played back at a lower decibel.

Tonight, I will shoot a play.  We'll see how it does in the wild.

Gary: cannot wait to see your results with it!

And the differences between OVF and EVF, esp the usability with big lenses. Also the Touit ...

Today I got the inviite from my local Fuji Store to check out the X-Pro 2 on Demo Day 19 March

Interesting and different bokeh.  I like the B&W best.
