the SL is let down by a mediocre sensor, if one can get over the APC size sensor, the XT2 is probably equal in IQ, the lenses are amazing and with the wider apertures available, they can make up for the difference in sensor size, i am not even taking AF, video,....into consideration....
the crazy thing is that one can get the same IQ with the XT20 and now the XE3 as well....
i tested the SL when it came out, had one on order, loved the zoom but its just a completely overpriced camera, even with the price drop....IQ just does not justify the price at all, the GFX is in a completely different galaxy in terms of IQ......

As I said I have both. The SL with current firmware is measurably and noticeably better than the XT2 sensor in both high ISO noise and DR. The Fujifilm 24MP sensor is a great sensor. Just a bit below the SL. The high ISO banding and AF performance of the longer end of the standard zoom were both addressed in firmware long ago. SInce the SL f.w. 2.0 my Reasonably comprehensive Fuji kit has been collecting dust.

Trying one 18 months ago doesn't give an indication of it's final performance, I'm afraid. I'd happily put the SL IQ up against any 24MP sensor on the market. It's a small step behind the M10. That's about it.

The Jerry's aluminum composite panel arrived and is not flat.  The 30 by 40 inch piece is convex (or concave on the other side) to the extend of about 1/2 inch.  I have not used Dibond, but this degree of warp is beyond what I consider acceptable.  I'll be talking to Jerry's today about a return.

See for the Jerry's product. 

It is interesting that they are advertised as never warping. But in reality 4mm is pretty thin and can easily be bent. Maybe that's why all the metal prints I've seen have a full four sided frame glued to their back only slightly smaller than the aluminum sheet size, I always assumed to ensure perfect flatness. The thinner something is the more likely it is to warp. Even the acrylic panels I use have to be a minimum of 1/4" thick at the size you're wanting to make sure they're ridged enough to stay flat.

What state were you in and how old were you when buying that pre-ACA insurance?

Considering Alan has lead on to that his daughters are about my age, I don't see how this matters to our conversation. 

But since you asked, I was living in PA, just outside Philadelphia and was about 27.  At the time, my premium was $147 with no life time maximums, a detectable $2000 per year and a copay of $45 for office visits.  I did not have a prescription plan, but prescriptions were covered after I met my deductible, along with the costs of any surgeries.  Now I could have bought a prescription plan for any extra $75 per month, but I only spent $15 per prescription for being sick about once every 2 to 3 years since then (full price, no copay).  Also, if you don't have $2000 in the bank for emergencies by the time you're 27, you've been living life all the the wrong ways, so I did not see a reason to pay for a lower deductible plan. 

Now my premium is $347 per month; I got a 47% increase from last year to this.  I still have the break down for age groups from the first plan I got at 27, and, for the 35 age group (my current age), it was not nearly that high.  Additionally, my deductible is $6000 now. 

BTW, I love how you conveniently left out the rest of my paragraph, "Additionally, the insurance I had then was cheaper, had lower deductibles and better coverage then what I have now, unless you count the free yearly prostate exams or colon screenings or (my favorite) maternity care I am now offered."

You see, if Alan believed the sky was red, no amount of showing him would change his mind.  Same with climate data.  He simply invents paradigms to suit his needs, and laughs and jokes.  Because he hasn't the ability to actually deal with the data.  Utterly delusional.
There you go again attacking me with insults rather than providing the hard-to-find research to refute my points.

Individual idiots is one thing, but imams going on tv to advise how to do it "lightly" is quite a different thing. You can't possibly compare contemporary Christian treatment of women with contemporary Muslim one.

That link wasn't about an individual - it was about an entire Christian church.

My Catalog consists of All Images, Recent Imports, User Collections and Folders. In the folders there is In Catalog and then the drives, say M drive. In M drive I have a folder, Photographs, and in that folder there are sub folders by year, 2015,2016,2017 etc and then in the year there are sub folders which are set out according to the event or place and date,sometimes with subfolders.
The all images has the full count of images, say 15000.In the folders the In Catalog shows 0, and in the M drive my Photographs folder has 0, and each of the sub folders, 2015,2016,2017 each also show 0, and it is not until I go to an event or place sub folder that I find any images.
If you looked at my M drive Photographs and with the sub folders 2015,2016a and 2017 you would think that there are no images there at all.
This means that if I want to filter a year by say a lens or aperture or some other I cannot do it because there are no images shown there, and so I can only do that for say a place or event folder.
Is this how the catalog works or am I missing something?
Should the years show the totals and have all the images for the year?

While the mapping isn't image dependent, the success of that mapping is the starting color space. The only way to know what intent os best is either do a sample print or use soft proofing...

Indeed. And that's why people will often try Relative Intent w/BPC as well as Perceptual or even Saturation and pick what looks best. I've had a few cases where relative Intent w/o BPC is best.  And that can only be done by soft proofing or killing more trees.
