    the recently released x-t20 has the af-c custom settings and 4k video of the x-t2. why can't the x-pro2 have that as well? is it still related to the heat sink? if it is, then does that mean that they were able to fit a better heat sink in the x-t20 and not the x-pro2? ;)

    I'm shooting (not professionally) a friend's event in Manila Polo Club this weekend and was wondering which lens should I go with to get the best all-around shots -- 18mm f2 or 35mm f2? I'll basically be shooting horses and people and far as I can tell, these horses are gonna be stationary for the most part since kids will be grooming them etc etc.

    ^23mm. I have the 56mm but seems like the 23mm is more on my body.

    go with the 35mm f2 for a 50mm equivalent, if you can't get near your subjects enough, unless of course you usually prefer to shoot wide. :)

    I like both, but I usually reserve shooting wide for landscape/architecture or the occasional group shot in gatherings. I mentioned it because what if they actually have horses running around? Would it be better if I got a wider shot to include the grounds, etc.? I shoot for fun, but I felt the need to ask since I'm technically going to be their photographer and I feel like I should approach it with some professionalism, even if it's volunteer work.

    23mm would be a nice in-between but I don't have a prime for that.

    if you'll be shooting the horses and kids in action, then you'll probably need the 35mm f2's af speed. the 18mm f2 which is part of the original fuji x lens trio badly needs an update, at least for me. though not an issue if you do manual focus. :)

    and i agree with gestapo, the 23mm f2 shares the same design and af speed as the 35mm f2, only at ~35mm equivalent

    Ah, learned something new! That settles that then. 35mm/f2 it is!
