I've managed to get three copies of it over the course of the past month (one from B&H...my preorder, and two from Midwest Photo Exchange. The first they had when I called, my replacement for that one I had to wait a week for...maybe give them a call and see if they have any more in stock or coming soon). Of course, I NEEDED three copies, since my first two broke, but still. The third one is doing quite well (though it's only been a week and a half).

These are with the 56/1.2 as well...continuous AF, as my son was walking rather rapidly pushing this bin forward in both images. While not a perfect hit rate, still impressed that I was able to get about 50% in perfect focus on his eyes while moving quickly towards me at f/1.2 indoors. This is with the X-E2. The X-T1 (which I do not own, but have used) is even better at tracking.

Quick business headshot this morning. Didn't have my lights with me, so this was very impromptu and had to deal with in-office lighting and shallower DOF than I'd have preferred. Still pleased with how it came out (by its nature, it's not a very creative photo, but that's what we need). Will retake later when I have my lights.

Tried X-A1 + XF 14mm for night shooting a couple of weeks ago. I'm generally happy with how they turned out (only the first one has had any post processing by me - all I did with the others was apply one of the new Fuji Lightroom color profiles).
There's one issue though; it's very hard to make the lights into starbursts. Either they are just an indistinct spot, or when they do look "star'ish" there's usually an ugly blob of flare next to them. I don't remember that it was so difficult with X-E1. For these shots it doesn't really bother me, but when the lights are closer to the camera it can be a problem.

Very nice set, Helena!
Regarding the missing "starbursts": it's probably more related to lens- or aperture-blade-design, as I've never seen really nice starbursts with Fujinon-XF-lenses. A former poster at this thread (sorry, don't recall his name, he posted mainly night-scenes in B&W, many with very distinct stars) wrote here once he'd choose the Voigtlaender 15mm over the XF14/2.8 because of the starbursts he got with the Voigtlaender.
Most of my manual focus Nikkor-lenses will show starburst's at command, no luck with the XF-optics so far ;-)

Thank you! That sounds likely. I remember that was a bit difficult to do starbursts with X-E1 (same lens), but it didn't seem nearly as hard as this and I never noticed any ugly "flare blobs" either. Maybe it's just that I haven't been in exactly the same light situations yet, or else the lens coating on X-A1 is different and causes some internal reflections. Or perhaps a little of both.

Anyway, overall I'm very happy with the Fuji gear and the colors are just lovely. Now when we have the profiles in Lightroom it's even better.

Finally got to do some landscape with the X-T1. I had one issue. Somehow the camera setting went to jpeg and would not let me set it to RAW. I couldn't for the life of me figure it out. I shut the camera off, changed lenses and it became accessible to switch back to raw. What prevents the camera from going to RAW mode?

The camera won't go to raw if it's in drive modes CH or CL, bracketing mode or double exposure mode. Easy dial to knock.
