Thanks Kevin.
A really nice set with the 50e.
I too enjoy the cheap glass. The e series in particular.
All that material shaving back in the day translates nicely to today's adapted mirrorless.

Btw, I really like the filmic quality.

I like this. Nice conversion. Looks almost like an octopus. I had one of those lenses. Was a lot of fun to use. I have the newer 55/2.8 AIS, but mine sat for too long and now has oil on the aperture and the focus is nearly seized. I am out of helical grease so it just sits. It is still usable, I left it at its optimum settings for macro. Perhaps I will break it out tomorrow and go bug hunting.

I appreciate the comment. I also like the film look and most of my shots I try for that feel. The tree shot was an attempt at the old lumography style with light leaks and such. I did an example in the daguerreotype style that I also liked. About the only thing I wish the Series E would give is more of the 3D look. I only have one lens that does that, another cheapy...Carl Zeiss Jena Biotar 2/58. Wish it was a Red T version, but does ok with a shade. I love the fact that I can adapt so many different lenses to my Fuji. That is where the fun comes in for me.

I bought Iridient while it was on sale - while the interface is… a little unsophisticated, it's really great for any situation where you want to maximize detail.

Same here. I don't use it often, as it really puts the "work" back in workflow, but for certain images it does a much better job than Lightroom.

I bought VSCO 4 quite a while ago after many positive opinions, but still struggle with the extreme results. Having liked Velvia 50 film a lot, I consider the VSCO results just as a maybe artistic interpretation. Here PhotoNinja and Velvia 50-.

I don't think that looks unrealistic at all - it's what I'd expect if I were using V50 or 100.

molson - I use Capture One for most Fuji files - I think Iridient can take detailed scenes further, but for anything with people I still prefer C1.

matsu - is that White Point (San Pedro)?

I never experienced Velvia 50 as bold as the VSCO interpretation.
An old film scan: Mont Fuji peeks thru the clouds.

I'd have to disagree I thought I'd see some yucky HDR-overblown stuff, but those photos were pretty nice IMO. I'd probably back off some of the vignette, though - a little overboard on that edit perhaps.

From earlier last year, June 30 2013, FujiFilm XE-1 and Jupiter 3 50/1.5:
The lens has an interesting background bokeh at certain times.
On this heafty crop, looks as if some type of wet sculpted glass?

My oldest son glanced at it and thought it was an octopus.
Adapted lenses are a lot of fun for me too.

It sure is.
Do you live around there? I'm in Torrance so it's a short skip down the 110.

Wow, I just looked at this on my calibrated monitor and I was truly floored. What an absolutely clean and clear shot! I feel I can reach out and disturb the butterfly... Well done!

May I ask, this has the feel of the 55-200, is that what you used here?

Jman, speaking about the first of those portraits, I have to ask if we do really need sharper. The first image is lovely. Can't wait to take delivery of my new X-E1...

Hi Matsu, Hi Kevin,
Thank you for the very nice feedback. Yes, it is plain 55..200mm @f8, and developed from Raw using Lightroom 5.3 and VSCO Velvia 50 Balance Cool very much tamed down.

The smoothness is what I like most about Fuji files. I don't know whether this translates to your term clean.
