Why are topics and photo threads about the Fuji GFX so scarce around here? Is it just the price of admission keeping most away? There are a few of you that have some deep pockets so lets see some shots. Been watching too many YouTubes and have planned a purchase path into one of these systems later this fall... damn the YouTube!

I bought the camera and the 32-64mm and 120mm macro lens. I have several adapters and have used a number of other lenses with the camera. I have gotten some nice images but not enough time to really take it out and do the types of comparisons I want. I will likely purchase the 23mm f4 when available and stop there. i have the Schneider 28 and 90mm TS lenses for Nikon and with adapters want to really see how well I can do tilt shift with this camera.

Mark, keep us posted on the adapted lens situation. I'd like to try a T/S lens, but had sold my Canon/Nikon lens several years ago. Need to get some feedback on the various T/S options before I purchase.

Yes, thanks rbf_. I'm aware of that thread (in fact I think I've made couple of posts in it), but really not much content on experienced use.

Looks like that post is with the 24mm TS-E, not the 17mm TS-E.

I don't have much to add right now as I am stuck at work but will have a nice trip next month that 23/4 would be really handy and the last time I heard, my local store is expecting 23/4 by the end of this month so keep my fingers' cross.
I added tilt adapter for EVF and I really like it. My biggest complain of any EVF is that I wear prescription glasses and outside in bright condition, EVF is never bright enough and it can be a struggle to see EVF properly. Often, I have to hold camera and try to press shutter with my right hand while my left hand is above my right eye and EVF so I could actually see what am I taking picture of. Then the tilt adapter arrived and I find that by looking at EVF even at just a slight angle, I don't get disturbance from external sunlight anymore and for the first time, I can even wear sunglasses and still use EVF. Unfortunately it broke after a couple of weeks and I am waiting for its replacement. Really missed it.

GFX owners: Do you know if you can charge the battery while it's in the body via a USB cable? (without the extended battery pack / grip).

What SD cards are you guys using? I have a 128gb SanDisk Extreme 90 mb/s SD XC1.

Also, brackets. The RRS bracket is $270. Alternatives?

I have been using a mixture of 32 - 128gb, and 45 - 90mb/s, that I previously had, with no problem. But I only use the camera for landscape work, so real need for speed/size.

I have the RRS bracket which has some problems (in that it's a tight fit to get at the battery). RRS have acknowledged the problem, sent an unsolicited rebate, and are working on a solution. Their updates have been a regular 4- -5 days, and they are preparing to ship a replacement anytime. I believe Kirk has a bracket, but you still have to remove the entire bracket to access the battery.

Anyone heard when, or even if, we will see CaptureOne Pro 10 support?
