Shall I trade it (35/2) in?  ^_^ Then i had two 23 and no more 35 (but just in between us, I don't use it often...)

 

I ordered the X-T2 yesterday, the dealer offered me - without asking for - the battery grip for half price. Cool, the extra batteries are nearly paid  Big Grin officially it will be on sale from September 8th.

A little concern about the 43mm filter size; which is hte same as the 35f2. Otherwise positive mtf.

My Canon EF-M 22mm f3 has a 43mm filter thread too. I bought a Marumi 43mm circular-pl filter for it which is not in any way thin or low profile, and it introduces no vignetting at all. 

Only odd thing about this filter I bought is the aluminium finish (not black). Luckily that has not caused me issues (yet) (not shhoting into the sun with a pol. filter).

Looking at the small front element in relation to the filter size, and the relatively moderate AOV for 23mm on APS-C, I am confident the filter size is fine for this lens.

That will be a nice early Autumn present, all the pre-reviews are making it out to be a very special camera indeed!  I particularly like the left hand side viewfinder, no "beak grease" on the rear screen.

The EVF of the X-T2 is centered, the one of the X-Pro2 is left sided. So, beak grease, no escape from  :unsure: but it might be a nice camera anyway. I wonder when there will be the X-T20?

Oh beak greased rear screen it is then!

 

 The Angry Photographer has been playing with the XT-2 today with the latest FW, he now states that it beats the D500 in terms of tracking ability and focus speed.....maybe this is the mirror-less turning point for AF!

 

  Many find the guy painful and bigoted, but his testing of the AF tracking is what many here have been predicting!

You saw him actually testing something? Maybe you linked the wrong video  :ph34r:  Big Grin  Wink

Valhalla, N.Y., August 25, 2016 – FUJIFILM Corporation has announced the new FUJINON XF23mmF2 R WR, a compact, weather and dust-resistant wide-angle lens weighing just 180g. [...]

Sometimes I'm thinking that they chose that town just for the cool name. Smile

No, he was with the Fuji rep for several hours testing the XT-2, these are his findings!
