I obviously made immediately a screenshot of the leaked image. So, although the follower deleted the image just a minute after he posted it, I was fast enough to copy it for you.

“ When I got the Fujifilm X100s around 8 months ago, I knew I was getting a great tool for street shooting, travel and general-purpose photography with my family. However, I also wanted to be able to...”
After a disastrous time with my Canon 5D3, i knew wanted to concentrate on Street Photography, through i call myself an Urban Photographer as i still like to get Architectural and urban objects into my photographs. I decided i wanted to try a light camera, as i was still new to Street Photography a silent leaf shutter would be a great bonus, so i first purchased an X100 then about two weeks later the X100s. My first proper Street Photography trip with the Fuji was to London, the now Iconic ‘Top Shop’ photo above is perhaps my favourite photo i have taken to date. It was taken on Oxford Street so it was very busy, luckily it was the perfect summers day so the natural lighting was amazing, this allowed a high shutter speed, low ISO and f8 for the perfect shot.

When Fuji announced the X-T1, I was super excited for the new, upgraded sensor as well as other features such as the ability to use UHS-II SD Cards, the interval timer, and more. There was one feature that I was indifferent on, until now: built-in wifi on the camera. Oh yeah, in case you didn’t hear, Adobe recently released Lightroom for mobile. Yes, you heard that right…Lightroom for mobile! Let me explain where I’m going with this… The days of traveling with bulky gear is over. With my Fujifilm X-T1, I’m now traveling light AND have all the gear I need to shoot, edit, and deliver photos to my client – from the road. ...

I’ve had many emails and messages on the site and on Facebook from people asking how I created this image so I thought I’d write a quick blog post describing the equipment needed and my approach to how I do it.

So the rumor mill is out and a possible Fuji X-Pro 2 is on the horizon for early or mid 2015. As Bob Dylan would say, "the times are changing." The Nikon D600 and Canon 6D came to fruition as affordable full frame cameras, well, not really affordable as $2,000 USD is not cheap by any means but within range of many more I suppose. Then we had the folks at Sony pumping out all sorts of full frame goodness in various shapes and forms and then there is Fujifilm X-Series with brave new sensor technology stirring the full frame pot (5DMK2, D700) and reaching in. The "reaching in" is arguable and I'm sure Dr. Boyer would say I'm way out of touch with sensor reality, but nonetheless, there seems to be a group of photographers that prefers the X-Trans sensor.......

I shared my thoughts on the Fujifilm X100 a year ago, and all the things I loved about the X100 also hold true for the X100S. The small size, the excellent image quality, and the ease of use are all things that made the X100 an excellent travel camera. With the X100S, Fuji has managed to make a good thing even better. The speed of the camera has been improved all around, the resolution of the electronic viewfinder has been increased, and the sensor has been upgraded to an X-Trans CMOS II sensor. Each of these improvements have made the X100S an even better travel camera than the original X100.
I was lucky enough to meet an old friend so I got a chance for a few portraits as well. I had with me the 56mm f/1.2 and the 23mm f/1.4. Both lenses are super sharp and produce excellent results. When the time comes I will pass on my experiences using these two fine lenses. For now, I hope you enjoy the pics.

A month has passed since part one of my review of the Fujifilm X-T1, the latest camera in the amazing X series Fuji lineup. I have been using the camera for over a month now, but before I start I would just like to reiterate that I am not a professional writer being extremely dyslexic, but what I am is a professional photographer who takes pictures for a living, so I like to think I know what I’m talking about. There is so much to like and so much to say about this camera, but I will start with what the X system has meant to me in the short time its been part of my image taking tool kit. Without going into too much history I've been shooting professionally for over 20 years, in that time I have used many cameras from film to digital and in the past few years cameras have become so heavy and bulky that it has become a chore to use them, their ability to produce amazing images is still there, but it’s just an annoyance to take them anywhere that you don't have to. What the Fuji has given me and it seems many others, is enthusiasm to just take pictures, to take a camera where ever I go, just like in my student days when I virtually slept with an Olympus om1. So if this is the only thing it can do for me, then that is enough, but read on, it gets better.

The Fujinon XF 18mm f2R is one of the three original lenses launched with the X-Pro1 in 2012 and was the widest of the trio - 18mm f2, 35mm f1.4 and 60mm f2.4 macro. Since then there have been a few wide angles lenses added to the X-Series armoury - 14mm f2.8, 10-24mm f4, 23mm f1.4 and Zeiss Touit 12mm f2.8 to name a few - and I feel the little 18mm has become the most underrated gems in the Fujifilm XF lens lineup......The Fujinon XF18mm f2R is a superb lens and my favourite of the five lenses I own for the X-Series system. Why it gets overlooked in favour of the wider or faster lenses that are available is frankly a shame. I was of the same opinion when I got my X-Pro1 system and thought the 14mm f2.8 would be mu wide angle lens of choice but the reality when I started to use the system in the real world was not as I expected....

ConclusionThe Fuji X-T1 is quite a camera, it is fast, responsive, quick to focus and that EVF is stunning. The image quality is the typical, high standard, Fuji offering. The images from the X-T1 are possibly the best I have seen from a non-full frame camera, same goes for the ISO performance. Image quality is certainly better than what my Nikon D3 produced. People get quite aggressive when comparing image quality, ridiculously comparing cameras 3 or 4 times the cost and laying that down as a marker. Is the quality better than Nikon D4 or Phase One medium format? I would say probably not, however it does stand up to the best full-frame cameras from a couple of years ago and thats good enough for me. The camera is compact, but not too small, I have quite large hands and I can hold it comfortably and it all feels natural. Is this the so called “DSLR Killer”? Depends on who you are and what you shoot. I would say that for some people the DSLR died a couple of years ago. I know a number of people who committed to mirror less systems a long time ago, both amateurs and pros. I, myself, swapped about 2 years ago. For some applications DSLRs still have the upper hand, sports and wildlife are probably still easier with a DSLR. In some areas of advertising and commercial photography the need for larger file output may still exist, somewhere where a Full-frame DSLR or medium format camera might be better. One things for sure, with the XT-1 Fuji have a camera which will have all, but the very top pro cameras looking over their shoulder......

After my series of posts on my experience with the FujiFilm X-T1, as well as getting many comments about the camera and raw processing of its files, I thought I would convey some additional thoughts I have about the camera, lenses, processing and the resultant images.
