I finally have my hands on a 16oz functional mirrorless system, with a beautiful case and extra batteries. All geared up, no where to go!
As it had turned out, the first XT2 was a defective one. So much for quality products made in Japan! I had to take a day off of work to make a trip to B&H in NYC to exchange for another one. Needless to say, I tested the heck out of both body and lens before I left the store!
Nevertheless, the new one has been working beautifully (knocking on wood). I'm especially impressed with the low light capability. Its ability to retain blown out highlights is also quite incredible. Not so sure how protective the camera case I got from Kaza can be, but it sure brings out the retro appearance of the camera.
At ISO3200, almost no PP was needed!
