My buddy recently got married and asked me to take a few pictures for him. I used the 35mm f/1.4 mostly.
Here is one of the first ones I processed.

Nice. Quite interesting. A nice change from all the boring pics of uninteresting people.

I was fortunate enough to do my second wedding with my Fuji X-Pro1 and X-E1 as lead photographer.

I would not recommend this to anyone shooting an event unless they are very familiar with using the Fuji camera and, have assistants, and if it's the only camera system you have at your disposal haha. The Fuji X-Pro 1 was my go to camera for 80% of the photos taken with the 35mm 18-55mm and the Helios 58mm lens at my disposal and a YN560III speedlite.

Thanks to the new firmware update, auto focusing was fairly simple. I think I might have missed focus a few times but that was due to me focusing close to the bride's white dress instead of her face. Aside from that, no major issues.

On three occasions, after I take a photo while using the EVF, my XPRO1, the camera would freeze on the last image taken and the only way I can continue shooting is to pull out the battery then put it back in. It was not a huge issue but I think it might have been because it was also a very hot summer day (Canadian wise). I did have metering issues as well, for some reason after the update it feels like my metering gauge just won't respond unless i'm in fully manual mode. This is also due to me not knowing the camera too well. It resulted in a few under/over exposed images that I eventually used P mode outdoors.

Lastly I did shoot the entire wedding in Raw+Normal (Jpeg) mode on the new Sandisk 80MB/s cards. No issues from going photo to photo.

This one was because I took the image from my FB, then uploaded it to instagram then put it on flickr so it's cropped into a funny box :P

First time posting photos in this thread. I told you all to stop posting photos from the X-E1 and X-Pro 1 immediately or something bad would happen. Did you listen? Nooooo. So yeah, I broke down and got myself a black X-E1. Took it to a North American road trip, just came back yesterday. NYC/Boston/Portland/all over New England (mostly Maine). Brought the camera and the 18-55 from home and added the 35 and Samyang/Rokinon/Bower 8/2.8 fisheye from B&H. Never had a fisheye before. Tons of fun. Anyway, here are the first few I edited. All from jpeg, in Aperture:

Flatiron building, NYC






Loving the camera so far, but missing editing RAW files in Lightroom 5. Need to test and compare some, to see how close to the jpegs image quality I'm able to come, for the things I tend to shoot.

WOW, love the tonality and simple composition on this one.

Do you often just pack the XM1 + 27mm?

I really wanted the pancake but then on a whim got the 35 and really liking it. I still want the pancake for portability/xe-1+27 in jacket pocket sort of thing, but focal length wise the pancake and the 35 are quite close.

hmm

A couple from my 'as often as possible' walk around the forest near me. X-E1 with 35 f/1.4, which I've found hunts and misses focus *way* more (in macro mode) after the latest FW updates. Both of these are MF handheld.

Way more or less? I guess more because you used MF.
That's strange, I've heard reports that said it had improved.

... guess I left out a key word there!

It hunts way MORE than before. I should also add this is when in MACRO MODE, not all the time.

These scenes had plenty of contrast and I was well outside of the macro range for the 35 (i.e., far enough back). I tried both normal AF and "MF assist" (M focus mode then AEL/AFL button, which I have set to AF). For the berries, I couldn't get it to lock at all and MF was the only way. in the fern shot, it was hit or miss.

I've taken around 5000 shots now with the X-E1 and never really noticed it hunting and, more to the point, *missing* like it did this time. Probably worse was the fact it gave focus confirmation -- green box and audible -- yet *nothing* was in focus (wasn't even back focussing).

Strange. I'll have to play with it more to see if there really is an issue (since the FW update(s)) or if this was an isolated case due to backlight conditions or something.

CDAF systems can indeed have problems when there's strong backlighting, like in these shots.

I am trying X-E1 to possibly replace my NEX system, did I get a bad kit lens or am I doing something stoopid?? Seems like my lens is waaaay off, but it's a new camera so maybe it's me? I focused directly on the tree in the foreground, no recompose. Nothing tricky. Just a simple test shot on my morning walk.

I shot it both JPG and RAW and the JPG capture also looks bad, so I don't think it's a LR issue (I also tried developing in Capture 1).

Thoughts?

This could be the result of the funky CFA Fuji put on the new X cameras. Is it Silkypix which gives sharper results?

It looks to me like the focus is further back. This does not look like smearing from the processing, the tree branches are soft too. The background looks sharper. What setting? What aperture and what were the focus settings? Single shot or continuous or manual?

Thanks for looking - full Exif data is on the photo. ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/280. Single shot. Handheld, OIS on. Just really basic settings that SHOULD give optimal sharpness, same settings that I use with NEX and my lil RX100... Unless I'm doing something totally silly that I missed.

I have noticed most of my photos look a bit hazy, like either I'm really not used to how Fuji files look, or somehow the lens is misaligned. I read on Photozone DE that the lens is really good, if you can find a well centered sample. This seems like something other than centering to me, tho.

LR version is 4.4 which is supposed to not be bad for the watercolor effect?

ETA: and flexible spot focus - so focus was definitely on the tree and it didn't jump to the background.
