RSMith: liked it! The focal length is perfectly suited to his expression.

Unfortunately, I will need to either try to exchange or get my 56mm repaired...the focus motor has an issue where the clutch won't engage, and so when focused further than about 3-4 feet, if I point the lens up or down a good ways, the focus group slides back, defocusing the shot. There was a point today, trying to take a picture of a building top, at about a 45 degree angle, where it was phyiscally impossible for me to focus the lens on the building as a result. When level (or at a moderate angle)...no issues, when pointed up or down and focused on something a little ways away...bad. I'm honestly not all that surprised...when I got the lens, it made an odd squeaking sound during focusing for about the first two hours...that 'worked its way out,' and was likely the clutch mechanism working its way out. Sucks, but there's always a few lemons in every manufacturered product. I'm going to call B&H and see how they want to handle this given the fact they have none in stock right now...I'd like to keep the lens until an exchange because it works fine for most shooting...I only just noticed this today, and I don't shoot at extreme angles much with it, but obviously it needs to be exchanged or fixed.

Anyway, this is at f/8:

I'll be calling Fuji as well. With it being such a new lens, however, I don't know if the service centers will have all the right parts, and frankly, I don't know if any of the techs have worked on this lens before. If I can get a quick replacement, I'd rather go that route, but if I can't, I'll send it to Fuji. In the meantime, it works just fine for most shooting, though I'd imagine the problem will get worse over time.

Monday evening the snow clouds started to look interesting. Since I had already been on a long walk earlier that day I wasn't eager to go out again, but did so anyway. Fortunately it only takes about 15 minutes to walk to a nice spot, but even so I almost missed the "light show". It lasted for about 10 minutes, then I had to put up with a snowstorm for about 20 minutes (took photos of that as well and will post some later) before the sun showed up again for another few minutes. It was worth it though.

The last one is heavily cropped and I accidentally focused on the foreground. With no VF it's hard to see where you focus with such strong light into the camera. I wonder if there is something you could put in the hot shoe for situations like this. Anyone know? Just something to help with framing and if I keep the focus box in the center it should help with focusing too, even though I can't see the box in the VF.

All taken with X-A1 + XF 14mm.

Nice photo's as usual Helena.......Now that the jet stream has moved back to higher latitudes I suppose there is still a chance we may get some of that white stuff this winter, hope not!
There seems to be a few manufacturers that produce view finders that clip into the hot shoe but I suspect none of them may be a cheap solution. Have you thought about a hood for the rear display?

I found a 56 in stock locally at Midwest Photo, so I bought it and will simply return the defective lens to B&H. Nice that I don't have to wait for a week or two for B&H to get more in stock.

Thank you! While I love snow I would have preferred to have it in December and January. Since it waited this long it would have been better if it hadn't arrived at all.

No, that's the first I hear of hoods for the screen. Interesting, I'll look into it. Thanks. I think I'd prefer a traditional VF though, even if it's a "dumb" one just for framing.

So as I mentioned, I picked up a new 56/1.2 today, as my first one had an issue with the focus motor. Interestingly enough, it also apparently has a slightly misaligned element, because as good as that one was optically, this replacement is even better. Sorry for the baby pics, but he makes for a nice telephoto lens tester. Both of these are at f/1.2.

quick thoughts....
I've picked up the X-E1 (for the second time actually) in hopes that I can make a X100 style camera using the 27mm pancake but get the performance of the newer chip instead of buying the X100s with the added bonus of change the lens if needed. The one thing that I don't like about the X-E1 is the EVF, there is quite the delay in low light and it just feels off. I have never had the opportunity to play with either x100/x100s/Pro1 to see if the hybrid viewfinder is the better answer. I guess my question is
...Show more

I've been in a similar pickle, any opinions on X-E1+27mm vs X100? They are at pretty much the same price.
