    Took these with my Fujifilm X-T2 and XF 16mm lens. Heavy crop on them but really pleased with the result!

    Super sharp and shooting insects with a 16mm? Impressive. I love the xt2 AF. Can I ask what settings you were using for AF?

    Hello! The 16mm has a close focus, (I believe 15cm is the closest) and for fucus settings I had single point focus. I simply put the camera in burst mode and focused on the bee when it was on the flower, then burst shot when it flew away.

    Thanks everyone for your fine comments!
