    Laurie and I attended the Nikonites sponsored annual meet and greet at the Circle B Bar Reserve outside of Lakeland, Florida earlier this week. Laurie was shooting a Nikon 1 J5 primarily with the 1 Nikkor 70-300mm while I was shooting a Fuji X-T2 primarily with a rented XF 100-400mm. The location is nothing short of spectacular.

    We are still sorting and culling images, but here are a few that jumped out. More to come later.

    That's a great set of pictures Ed. Both the little J5 & the XT-2 worked very well.

    Chuck, I was impressed with the J5 before this but am now seriously considering replacing my V2 with one. The IQ is that much better.

    I sure wish Nikon would come out with a J5 that had a built in viewfinder. If they did I'd buy one. My V1 is a really an enjoyable camera to shoot. With a J5 sensor it would be GREAT!

    Hey Nikon are you listening??? :)

    A few images of the landscape of the Circle B. I had never been in wetlands like this before and found it almost primeval. It is a beautiful location.
