I have three zooms and an 18 mm; not the lens they used to claim as a 
macro/portrait, I forget which that is, but it's not what I would call a 
macro lens.

No, close-up lens. Actually I meant +10, getting confused because I use 
+3 on my glasses for close up work.

I'd certainly like an X-T2 body, and the long zoom (for sports) one of 
these days.

I realise they have improved a lot but I don't have unlimited funds. And 
I still reckon the X-E1 and the original lenses are pretty good.
