Danke schon! I like your shot as well, very fun. Poor little one.

Took the XE-1 on a trip to see family in FL over Thanksgiving and I couldn't be happier with its performance. I brought along my 6D, but barely touched it.

p.178 #6 · Fujifilm X-mount Image Thread


I just wanted to stop in and say that there are many, many amazing pictures in this thread. I finally jumped into mirror less last week by picking up the XE2, 18-55 and the 23mm lens. It will be in addition to my extensive Canon gear that I use for wildlife and birding. I plan to use the XE2 for hiking and travel where my purpose isn't wildlife.

I use LR5 for my Canon gear and have continued to use it for the XE2 so far. I've been shooting RAW + Fine so I can compare the Fuji jpeg (which everyone says is so good) against the RAW and my own processing. I have a hard time matching the Fuji jpeg with the RAW in LR. I really like the jpeg but I'm a die hard RAW fan and don't know if I could bring myself to just shoot jpeg on this camera....oh the dilemmas. I also don't want to bother with any other software, so will stick with LR but not sure if I will stick with RAW.

My next big decision is whether to purchase the 14mm or wait for the 10-24. I can't decide what I'd use more. I love the quality of these Fuji lenses though. So well made...and I'm used to shooting $10,000 lenses from Canon.

The Fuji 14 us a stunningly good lens. Best ultra wide I've ever owned. I'm sure the 10-24 will be good, and if course it'll be much wider, but it will also be very large. Pictures that have been shown show it to be roughly twice the size of the 14mm...roughly the size of a DSLR UWA zoom.

Yes, I've seen the pictures of it and it is very big. Bigger than all the others except the telephoto zooms. I've never shot much with prime lenses except at my long focal lengths on Canon. But I'm really loving this 23mm prime. I'm really leaning towards the 14 now where as before I was set on the 10-24. I may even consider selling the 18-55 and going for a 3 lens set: 14, 23, 56 ....decisions, decisions....

I really like using primes on the Fuji. I typically carry the 14, 35, 60 and my 55-200, though sometimes I'll swap the 55-200 for my FD 85/1.8, and sometimes I bring my Speed Booster with a 50/1.4 or 55/1.2 in place of the 35. I also have the XC 16-50, which I got in a kit with the X-M1, and it's a decent lens (especially for the $100 extra it cost), and allows me to have a standard zoom for times I want one. I might pick up the 23/1.4, but I'm leaning towards getting the 27/2.8 instead, as I have the FD 35/2, which in conjunction with the Speed Booster gives me similar capability (though without AF and not quite as sharp) as the 23/1.4, and the 27 on the X-M1 will be great for a super small solution, vs my X-E2 with the larger lenses. Still on the fence about that. When the 56/1.2 comes out, though, I'll swap my 60 for that for sure. I use my OM-D for macro anyway.

You should download LR 5.3 RC, it is better at processing the X trans file.

That is what I am using, I never used the previous versions on the Fuji so I can't compare. It does a good job, but the colours out of the Fuji jpeg are hard to replicate.

Love the work here! Just received my X-E2, 18-55 (which I will immediately sell) and 23 - going to shoot now! Thanks so much for the LR 5.3 RC tip - just downloaded and installed. Have never really like LR processing of my XE1 files - pray 5.3RC helps!!

Keep the pics coming!

Since this seems to come up every now and again. What is the best current tool to process XTrans? I have used LR5.2 and DCRaw. Get better results with DCRaw, but barely and the workflow is slow.

I've heard a lot of good things about Photo Ninja. However, like all converters that aren't LR or Aperture, I really dislike the UI.

Well so far I'm impressed with the overall handling on the X-Pro body (I use the hand grip). It feels extremely well constructed in comparison to the 18mm and 35mm lenses (which also feel well made). I really like the manual focus ring as well, it still uses the stepping motor but it is absolutely usable in my opinion.

Image quality observations are limited as it only arrived yesterday and I haven't had a lot of time to shoot with it yet. Wide open it looks pretty good in the center if I'm honest. Stopping down even to f/2.0 seems to improve the overall image dramatically. That's not to say that f/1.4 is unusable, it's just f/2.0 is noticeably better.

Running through the rest of the apertures further improves the image (as would be expected). I will hopefully get some time to get out soon and shoot with this thing and share some images with you all.

Capture One is wonderful - you just missed a 30% off promotion, though. I sometimes use my X-E1 as a change of pace camera when I am shooting in the studio - for people/skin tones, the color balancing tools in CO save a lot of time compared to doing it in Photoshop.

Photo Ninja is also my tool of choice. Highly recommended!

thanks
you know what they say in marketing? if you can't make it good, make it big. If you can't make it big, make it red... or pink/orange in my case

it's basically the tint from my cokin filters, but the city did sparkle for a few minutes there... golden hour light.
